First Image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

EW offers the first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". While many have taken to the Internet to bash Eisenberg's casting as the iconic villain, I think it's better to wait until the movie is in theaters before any comments are issued. After all, even Heath Ledger was considered bad casting when he was chosen to play Joker in "The Dark Knight". Here's what director Zack Snyder had to say about the character:
"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."
The film stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Scoot McNairy and Laurence Fishburne.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens in theaters on March 25, 2016.
