By Matt O'Bryant

Welcome back everyone,

It was just a couple of weeks ago when we got our first look at Jason Momoa's Aquaman, and now we finally have our first official look at Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in what is gonna be one of the biggest films of not only 2016, but probably of all time.

Now to mark the one year countdown till the release of Batman V. Superman on March 25th, 2016.  We get the first Image of our new Lex Luther!

Check out the picture below:

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Director of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice Zack Snyder talked about the new Lex Luthor:

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. Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake,He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.”
— Zack Snyder

Wow!  I loved Jessie Eisenberg in The Social Network so much as that super smart intellectual asshole guy, that when they announced his casting originally I was just beyond excited!  I really believe he can pull off an iconic young Lex Luthor.  Just think of the scenes in Social Network where he is talking with the lawyers sitting around the table, he is just mesmerizing in those scenes.  The only thing I was worried about was the look they were going to give him, would they just leave the hair, go all the way bald, or maybe that Gene Hackman style hair from the original Superman films.  I'm Happy as hell do see that they decided to go with the all bald look, Jessie is going to absolutely kill as the Menacing, Rich, Intellectual Maniac Lex Luthor.  Also don't forget this will be the first time on screen that we have seen a Lex Luthor that is younger than superman!  So pumped this is gonna be Epic!

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016
