Entertainment Weekly has our first look at Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) as The Man of Steel’s arch nemesis, Lex Luthor. The obvious take away from this first image is confirmation that Snyder will be going with the hairless look that the fans have wanted since the casting was announced.
Less obvious, however, is the rather peculiar wardrobe. Most people would probably picture Luthor in his big business tailored attire, but the photographers have chosen to go with what appears to be a Prison Uniform. Try googling “Orange is the New Black” for a comparison.
Does this suggest anything else to anyone? What have you noticed from this image? What’s interesting about that is that the bald head might then be directly related to his incarceration and not as tied to the comicbook origins as we’d otherwise guess. Time will tell, but just something to ponder in the meantime.
