In a revelation, Actor Jesse Eisenberg is set to play the role of DC Comics character Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In the first movie, which will release on March 25, 2016, Jesse is shown as bald who is the arch rival of Superman.

According to the 1960s issue of Adventure Comics, Superman accidentally doused a chemical on Luthor because of which Luthor lost all his hair and fell ill. Since then, Luthor is after Superman.

After revealing the first look, Director Zack Snyder said, “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.” 

In the first look, Eisenberg looks menacing, fierce and revengeful.

Notably, Eisenberg earlier played the role of Mark Zuckerberg, Founder, Facebook in the movie The Social Network.
