Does Now You See Me: The Second Act image reveal that Jesse Eisenberg went bald for Lex Luthor role?

January 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments



A picture speaks a thousand words? Well, this one certainly might do…

Summit Entertainment have released the above image from the now filming Now You See Me: The Second Act featuring Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Caine.

The official synopsis reads: One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me: The Second Act only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.

Fair enough, but what has this got to do with  Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice you ask? Well…

Speculation is rising that Eisenberg’s hair in the picture would indicate that he may have shaved his head in BvS as it’s at just the right length for hair that has been growing back for a couple of months.

Of course, there’s nothing concrete here, but it does make us believe that, at some point, Lex Luthor will sport his now trademark bald look.

In related news, Superman himself, Henry Caville, has been talking a little about Batman V Superman and he revealed that it’s history making and will be “A visual spectacle.”

The full interview is below…

The Jon M. Chu-directed Now You See Me: The Second Act will arrive on June 10, 2016. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
