It took a while but the other week Zack Snyder finally gave us a photo reveal of actor Jesse Eisenberg’s new bald look for the iconic villain character Lex Luthor in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” film.
Talking with Seth Meyers on Late Night recently, the actor revealed that he was terrified to shave off his thick locks:
“I’ve never been able to touch my scalp. It’s freezing. It’s really strange. You know, it’s the kind of thing where you feel like ‘I can really damage myself.’ You wanna wear a helmet. It’s terrifying, it’s terrifying.”
Eisenberg also spoke about the secrecy surrounding the movie and the paparazzi photos that showed him having to cover up his head whilst walking to set:
“You’d think there would be something more threatening than the floral arrangement [on my head]. Everything is like shrouded in secrecy and the people are shrouded in bandannas. You know, Superman, Henry Cavill, in like baggy sweatpants.”
The first trailer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is rumored to be debuting with next month’s “Mad Max: Fury Road”.
