Yes, Lex Luthor Will Be Bald in Batman v Superman – First Pic Released



No, not the one above. The reveal is exclusive to Entertainment Weekly, with a picture that would appear to depict Jesse Eisenberg’s take on the character in prison clothes (though it’s tough to tell from the black-and-white photo). Maybe he’s mad that the Wonder Twins took him to court over their invention of Lexcorp.

While Eisenberg seems more physically slight than the Luthor I grew up being used to, he definitely has the intensity, and looks more outright psychotic than Michael Rosenbaum, Kevin Spacey or Gene Hackman in the part. He also seems to have actually shaved his head for the part, which is a step above at least one of the aforementioned.
