Jesse Eisenberg Talks Lex Luthor

Actor Jesse Eisenberg (Mark Zuckerberg in Facebook movie) has a new movie coming out titled The Double. He is on promo tour and appeared in all kinds of shows this week including Letterman. IGN got the opportunity to interview Eisenberg and they also asked some questions about his super villain role Lex Luthor.

Of course it is all hush hush and details of the Batman vs. Superman movie are kept secret. Jesse Eisenberg revealed though that the new Lex Luthor will be different. He will play it as its own character without the history of former Lex Luthor incarnations. I think that definitely makes sense. He is going to be a much younger Lex Luther compared to for instance Gene Hackman or even Kevin Spacey.

Eisenberg declined to answer if he will be bald in the movie. We still have to wait two years to find out. Batman vs. Superman is scheduled for May 6, 2016.

Earlier this week, Zack Snyder unveiled the new Batmobile.

Watch below Jesse Eisenberg talk about The Double on Letterman earlier this week. See also The Double trailer below.

Jesse Eisenberg’s hair is magnificent, but why isn’t he bald for Lex Luthor?


My God, Jesse Eisenberg’s hair is glorious. I don’t think I’ve ever paid that much attention to his locks, but OMG. I would kill to have those curls!! He has Helena Bonham Carter hair.
