Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor is going to be unlike any other version of the character we've seen before when he takes center stage in "Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice" next year -- or should we say center court?
A new image from Empire Magazine gives us the best glimpse at this new "hip, RAM-brained superbad Lex Luthor" that we've ever seen before -- as well as a better look at the company he runs, LexCorp Industries.
We already knew that Luthor's latest iteration would be a Silicon Valley-style CEO, but this pic really cinches it, right down to the graphic tee and sneakers. The basketball court is definitely a nice touch, too... after all, the Google offices have one, so why shouldn't LexCorp?
Of course, LexCorp does have one valuable asset that Google doesn't -- Mercy Graves! Last night, DC Entertainment confirmed in a new trailer breakdown that actor Tae Okamoto would be playing Lex Luthor's iconic personal assistant and bodyguard, who first became part of the franchise with "Superman: The Animated Series." We saw her in the Comic-Con trailer escorting Zod's dead body through a building -- also LexCorp, perhaps?
Meanwhile, other new images from Empire magazine include Superman wandering around what looks like the ruins of Wayne Manor, and Batman getting ready to turn on the Bat signal, which has been described as "a legacy from the Commissioner Gordon era." Wait, does that mean Jim Gordon isn't around anymore? Guess we'll have to pick up the latest issue of Empire when it hits newsstands this Thursday to see if we can find out more.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" flies into theaters on March 26, 2016.
