Today we’ve got three new pretty amazing shots from ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ to share with you. While there is a new look at Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman the true stand out here is the shot of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. While this isn’t the first shot we’ve had from him on set, this could be the best one to date that shows him off as a CEO of a Silicon Valley start up turned multi-billionaire.
Let’s take a look here. First up, let’s check out Affleck as Batman standing next to the Bat Signal in the rain. Most likely this is a different view of the same scene that was glimpsed in the trailer which had him standing there. We still don’t know if he is using this to let the city know he has returned or to try and summon the Man of Steel.
Next up is Cavill as Superman standing in the shadows. I’m honestly getting an almost vampiric feeling from this shot. It makes me wonder if it is being displayed this way to amp up the idea that makes Batman think that this is a person with something to hide.
Finally we see Eisenberg as Luthor. Honestly this really makes me think of LexCorp Industries as an Internet startup with levels of success that have passed Facebook with such a casual looking game area in the office. I still am not getting the evil genius vibe though which I suspect we won’t see too much of in the previews leading up to the movie.
I’m still torn on this new take of Luthor but am willing to give it a chance. We don’t really know much about him still and it could prove to be a fun watch on the big screen.
Are you looking forward to ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’? Do you think Eisenberg’s new take on Luthor is the right kind of change needed to make him a modern supervillain or is this update not needed? Share your thoughts below!
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is slated to open in theaters on March 25, 2016.
