There it is, folks -- courtesy of Entertainment Weekly comes our first official look at Jesse Eisenberg as iconic villain (and Superman arch-nemesis) Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, due out on March 25, 2016, exactly one year from today.

On Eisenberg's Lex Luthor versus other incarnations of the character, director Zack Snyder told EW that he's unlike any Lex we've seen before... "other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course.” 

He is indeed bald, which this image finally confirms, and this movie won't be the last we see of the character either, as Eisenberg is rumored to be reprising the role for 2016's other major DC movie, Suicide Squad.

“Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake,” says Snyder. “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.”

No word yet on whether a teaser trailer for the movie is on its way sooner rather than later, but in the meantime here are some of the other Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice images that have been released so far.
