DC Comics has released an official pic of one of the greatest antagonists to grace the hallowed pages of comic-book culture, Lex Luthor. While many doubted the curl-haired star of the facebook film The Social Network (2010) could pull-off playing the super-villain; a recent publicity-still proves that Jesse Eisenberg may prove naysayers and doubters wrong.
Eisenberg will be playing Luthor in the much-anticipated film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice due out next year. Lex Luthor has previously been portrayed by Kevin Spacey & Gene Hackman; providing Eisenberg with some pretty big super-villain shoes to fill.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is due out March 25, 2016
