Category: Related News Discussion:

This week, when we are officially one year away from DC’s greatest heroes battling it out on the big screen for the first time in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Entertaiment Weekly and Clay Enos revealed the first official look at the film’s antagonist, Lex Luthor portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg. 

"The mark of a good villain is how he knows to stop monologuing before he gives away too much of his plan. That's also the mark of a good superhero-franchise director. Details on Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (due March 25, 2016) have been scarcer than kryptonite," EW says. "We know that a cameo by Aquaman sets up 2017's Justice League and hat Wonder Woman has a sizable role. And now we have our first glimpse of Jesse Eisenberg as one of comics' greatest bad guys: Lex Luthor."

EW quotes Zack Snyder talking on his Lex Luthor:

"He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure," says Snyder, "other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course."

"Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake," says Snyder. "He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there."

EW also gives a review of all the actors who played Lex Luthor in other movies and TV series.
