The new Lex Luthor was shown today via Entertainment Weekly for the much anticipated Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Jesse Eisenberg, will be playing the part of the DC comics villain in the Zack Snyder film due out in March of 2016. Will he try to copy Gene Hackman's annoying portrayal of the billionaire villain? Or, will we see the Luthor known from the comics?

What do you think?  Given the bulk of his roles, he may try to do the comedic version or he could surprise everyone the way Heath Ledger did when played The Joker in Dark Knight. Lets hope for a darker, more acceptable Lex Luthor for the fans of both the comics and the previous Batman films. Please comment on your preference below.
