Watch: Jesse Eisenberg on Shaving His Head for Lex Luthor in 'Batman v. Superman'

Now in post-production, Zack Snyder’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” won’t hit theaters until March 25, 2016. But after a new pic of the baldheaded actor leaked last month, Jesse Eisenberg came on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Thursday with a healthy head of hair to talk about playing Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor.

In the film, the 2011 Oscar nominee (“The Social Network”) stars alongside Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons. According to the interview below, the hush-hush nature of the project demanded the actor come to set in guise each day.

He also has “The End of the Tour” coming later this year, along with Joachim Trier’s English-language debut, New York drama “Louder Than Bombs,” hoping to hit Cannes in May. Eisenberg also joined Woody Allen’s next film.
