Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…
On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

Yesterday marked the one year wait for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we are one day closer to seeing this epic DC Comics movie play out on the big screen, and 5 character portraits richer for our troubles. Thus far, director Zack Snyder has been kind enough to offer a look at his superheroes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And then yesterday, he finally unveiled the very bald Lex Luthor. We've collected them all for you to see here!
Can you believe it's been almost two years since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first announced at Comic-Con 2013? It wasn't until several months later, on March 13, 2014, that we got our first look at Ben Affleck in his new Batman costume standing next to the Batmobile, which sent fans into a frenzy. Four months went by before we got our first look at Henry Cavill in his new Superman costume, »
There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Sneak Peek the first official look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing young 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at the actor, with and without his hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.
Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.
In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

Though Suicide Squad is not necessarily tied directly into Justice League, we know that it is part of DC and Warner Bros.' expansive cinematic universe. So, many believe that this third film in their planned series will somehow connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it has been widely rumored that both Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will make appearances at some point, Latino Review is back with yet another rumor that claims the movie will also tease a connection to Aquaman. It seems that Amanda Waller, who brings this group of super villains together for an impossible mission, has had her own run in with the legendary Atlantis superhero.
In a recent interview, Viola Davis called her Amanda Waller a brutal badass. That may be true if this latest tidbit proves to be accurate. According to El Mayimbe, Waller is »

Early this morning, it was finally revealed that Jesse Eisenberg is in fact playing a very bald Lex Luthor. The ultimate DC Comics villain was unveiled in his new big screen incarnation in honor of the one year wait we still have for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to hit theaters. And over the next twelve months, more and more of the virtually unknown plot will surely leak out. Badass Digest is helping that idea along with new story details, which give us a reason why the last son of Krypton and The Dark Knight are throwing fists in each other's direction. And if this rumor pans out, it looks like it's all Lex Luthor's fault.
It's no secret that Bruce Wayne and Kal-El are going to go toe-to-toe in an epic battle that is said to come halfway through the movie, before these two team up to take on a common foe. »
Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly dropped this new, first promo pic of actor Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" super hero/action flick. As you can see, he's definitely bald and intense-looking. Director, Zack Snyder, offered up a few words about this version of Lex Luthor. He told them: "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. Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. 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.” The movie stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, »

Eisenberg follows in the famous footsteps of other actors who’ve taken on the roll of the evil genius in both film (Gene Hackman, Superman: The Movie & Kevin Spacey, Superman Returns) and on TV (John Shea, “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” & Michael Rosenbaum, “Smallville”).
Eisenberg starred in Zombieland (2009), The Social Network (2010), and Now You See Me (2013). The actor is filming the sequel, Now You See Me: The Second Act, with director Jon M. Chu. That film will be in theaters on June 10, 2016.

We’ve had a good look at the premier cosplayers in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, from the caped crusaders to Wonder Woman to Aquaman. But what about the enemies they’ll be up against? Well, Warner Bros and Entertainment Weekly have now given us our first point blank image of Jesse Eisenberg as the Man Of Steel’s chrome-domed nemesis Lex Luthor…
It’s perhaps not a great surprise that Eisenberg has shaved his head for the role, though this was obviously a topic of debate amongst fans. The character isn’t known for his lustrous locks, though Gene Hackman jumped between scalpy and curly during his time as Luthor in WB’s original franchise.
Snyder also remarked that a new approach will be taken to DC’s nefarious capitalist in line with his unusual casting choice:
He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, »

Though we know it’s setting the scene for the larger DC cinematic universe and have a good idea who’ll be in it, there isn’t that much information around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until today, we didn’t even know if Lex Luthor would have hair or not. But now we do!
Just released by Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:
He definitely look intense, plus he’s got previous experience from The Social Network playing a billionaire who isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Today, we are exactly one year away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere on the big screen. To celebrate the long and tiresome wait, EW has debuted a first look image at one of the main characters yet to be revealed. Here, we meet Jesse Eisenberg as iconic DC villain Lex Luthor. The photo finally answers the question we've been asking for months: Yes, he will be bald!
EW also offers some new insight into this reimagining of the Metropolis millionaire who goes toe-to-toe with Superman and Batman. About Jesse Eisenberg's role as Lex Luthor, director Zack Snyder states:
"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....Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he »
The Oscar-nominated Social Network star has traded in his curly hair for a chrome dome to play the DC villain in the forthcoming crossover film.

The Eisenberg picture, photographed by Clay Enos for Entertainment Weekly, is the first look at Eisenberg in character for the role.
Director Zack Snyder revealed that Eisenberg's take on the character will be unlike "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."
Snyder added: "Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he believes and »
The first picture of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has just premiered. Much was made over whether or not Eisenberg would have hair or not and I think this pretty much answers that question. Snyder was quoted by Entertainment Weekly, who premiered the pic, saying, "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. Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. 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." To go along with that, digital artist Scott Johnson posted his own color-corrected version on Twitter. This isn't official, but might give you a better idea »

Next year's DC Comics adaptation Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice not only brings Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) together on the big screen for the first time, but it also introduces Justice League members Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). During a recent interview, Gal Gadot spoke about criticisms about how her body type wasn't right for Wonder Woman, her character's powers, and much more. First, though, she spoke about how long she had to wait before learning she had won the role.
"I never had to wait so long for a reply. It was a month and a half of torture. It was a crazy roller-coaster. I couldn't talk about it to anyone. On the day they promised a reply I was flying to NY for another gig. When the plane landed I saw I had a lot of missed calls. »
Pretty Woman turns 25!
Can you believe it? It's been 25 years since the Gary Marshall romantic comedy first swept us off our feet. This year marks the silver anniversary of the movie that catapulted Julia Roberts into superstardom when it first premiered in 1990. The whole world fell for Roberts' irresistible smile and Et got to see it first on the set a year earlier.
At just 21 years old, Roberts was cast as Vivian Ward, a hooker with a heart of gold who is romanced by Edward Lewis, a millionaire tycoon played by Richard Gere. "He's really supportive, giving actor," she told Et in 1989. "It's so nice to be there with someone who, I feel like when I feel good about my work he'll support that."
The original title of the film was $3,000, referring to the price for a night with Julia's character. For her part »
During an interview with Robot Underdog, Gal Gadot has been speaking about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more specifically, the criticism levied towards her casting as the Amazon Princess.
“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. hen I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t… After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I »

According to a new report from Comicbook.com, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Alfred star, Jeremy Irons (left), commented on the script ,again, at the recent Lucca Film Festival. Apparently, he thinks it's a blockbuster and amazing screenplay, stating: " The next Batman has an amazing screenplay, It's a blockbuster written from the heart." These comments come after Jeremy had the chance to see the complete script, so that sounds pretty exciting to say the least. Currently, the movie is still set to release into theaters on March 25th, 2016. It stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jeremy Irons,Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Holly Hunter ,and Scoot McNairy. »
While it may seem like it's taking Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice longer to reach the big screen than most modern blockbusters, it's only because we heard about it so early in the process. Still, more than two years after it was first announced at Comic-Con 2013, there is so much we don't know about the actual story. We know that it has an epic fight between its two title characters. And we also know that it sets up Justice League Part 1. But the plot remains a mystery. And so does Jeremy Irons' take on iconic Butler and all-around servant Alfred. The actor himself isn't doing anything to make the picture any clearer. But he does have much praise for the screenplay.
