Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor Will Be “Completely New”

With only one short year left until Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated film Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice premieres and ignites the shared DC cinematic universe, the studio has been slowly revealing information about the film, from images to an official synopsis.

So far, we’ve seen Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman unveiled via social media. Though, today the spotlight shines on the antagonist of the story as actor Jesse Eisenberg, who will be playing the role of Superman’s arch-enemy Lex Luthor, reveals how his role as the character “won’t be like any other Lex Luthor we’ve seen before.

You can hear the man himself in the video below:

Most live-action incarnations of the villain have been made out to be evil scientists who desire world domination or destruction. The first incarnation of Luthor to portray as a corporate CEO convinced that he was in the right was in the Smallville television series.

Perhaps Eisenberg will give viewers a good balance of the character as both. What do you think? Would you like to see the actor pull it off? Let us know in the comments below!
