Batman Vs Superman: A First Glimpse Of Lex Luthor?

Jesse Eisenberg channels Wayne's World in new pic

There’s been a lot of activity in the DC comics / Warner Brothers camp recently. Last week the studio announced the next seven films, leading up to 2018, with hints at a new solo Batman film coming in 2019.

In the meantime though, film and comic book fans alike are chomping at the bit for a look at Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Last week it was revealed that Game Of Thrones’ Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman – joining a cast that already includes Henry Cavili as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Godot as Wonder Woman.

Now, talk has turned to the film’s villain, Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg. While the actor’s turn in The Social Network shows he can do billionaire sociopaths brilliantly, it’s his long hair in this first image from the set, rather than Luthor’s usual bald appearance that has got fans talking.

So far, the only official image we’ve had from the film is this one of Affleck’s Batman beside a re-envisioned Batmobile but that will no doubt change with the release of the first teaser trailer, rumoured to debut at San Diego Comic Con next month.

San Diego Comic Con runs from july 25th to 27th. Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be released on May 6th 2016.
