First photo, details on Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in ‘Dawn of Justice’

Details on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been few and far between, but exactly one year until the release of the film, the first official image of Jesse Eisenberg in character is out. Entertainment Weekly debuted the image and quoted Snyder on the character.

“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.”

Eisenberg wasn’t the first person fans thought of to play the supervillain, but hints at a “Bill Gates type” made the star of The Social Network.

Henry Cavill returns at Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa has a cameo as Aquaman. The supporting cast includes Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
