New Batman v Superman photo proves Lex Luthor is not like other billionaires

He’s a cool billionaire.

When you hear that Jesse Eisenberg is playing billionaire tech genius Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you’re probably thinking, “There’s no way this guy would ever have wear a leather jacket, and he certainly wouldn’t pose for a photograph while wearing sunglasses.”

Well, guess what? Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor isn’t like your old man’s Lex Luthor. This version of the LexCorp CEO is cool and with-it and gives fake interviews to Wired for sponsored editorial content. Did I just blow your mind?

Anyway, said sponsored content also came with a new photo of the Dawn of Justice string puller, and it’s definitely taken in a way to suggest that this iteration of Luthor is putting forward a more millennial-friendly image to help mask his clearly maniacal (and Doomsday-creating) true self. 

Check out the full photo below, and read the interview here.
