A lot of people are still scratching their head at the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. One of the big question was whether the actor would shave his head and go for the “classic” Luthor look. Now comes some word on that particular topic.
There’s already been one or two images surfaced online of the new LexCorp building, which is a company that is said to resemble a hip, cool, Google-type business. Batman-News has apparently had a first look at Eisenberg as Lex, though. Revealing that he won’t be bald, their description reads, “It’s not Eisenberg’s typical curly look – it’s a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it’s dirty blonde. Eisenberg’s Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day.”
Added to this, a user on the IMDb, who has apparently seen Eisenberg in the flesh, claims, “Lex has a super modern-hip Facebook/Google style office with a basketball court, pinball tables, etc. Everyone looks ultra douchey and has bowties and blazers, etc. Lex is introduced in which he takes a basketball shot, and in the same motion, after draining a shot, turns around and shakes a senator’s hand, who is there to greet him. He looks like Kurt Cobain, and is a complete douche.”
Now, I’m a person that absolutely cannot stand Kurt Cobain, so this all sounds a bit ‘meh’ to me. Here’s hoping his hair gets snipped at some point during Dawn of Justice.
In Dawn of Justice, Eisenberg is part of a a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and unconfirmed roles for Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvery and Tao Okamoto.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently set for a 6th May, 2016 release.
