Shedding his famous curls for the role, Entertainment Weekly revealed the transformation earlier Wednesday.
“He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course,” said ‘Batman v. Superman’ director Zack Snyder.
Eisenberg joins group of very talented actors who have previously portrayed the villain. Gene Hackman played Lex Luther throughout the 70s and 80s while Kevin Spacey played the character in 2006’s ‘Superman Returns’.
‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ comes to theaters March 25, 2015 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, and Ray Fisher. The film is directed by Zac Snyder.
