Following an image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, we now have our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as the menacing Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v Superman movie and call us crazy, but it already looks like he's going to give a stellar performance as the Man of Steel's arch-villain. "He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure," said director Zack Snyder. "Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. 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." Eisenberg has earned critical acclaim for his roles in films like The Social Network and Zombieland. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, premieres in exactly one year, on March 25, 2016.
