Despite the majority being lukewarm on Jesse Eisenberg being announced to play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, the big question was whether Eisen-Lex would take on the familiar, classic bald-headed look of Lex. Now comes some apparent news on just what this latest Luthor will look like.

We already know that LexCorp will apparently be a cool, hipster-type company much akin to Google and Facebook, but Batman-News have reports on Eisenberg’s Luthor appearance. The description reads, “It’s not Eisenberg’s typical curly look – it’s a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it’s dirty blonde. Eisenberg’s Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day.”

Added to this report, a user on IMDb claims to have seen Eisenberg’s Luthor in the flesh. Their report says, “Lex has a super modern-hip Facebook/Google style office with a basketball court, pinball tables, etc. Everyone looks ultra douchey and has bowties and blazers, etc. Lex is introduced in which he takes a basketball shot, and in the same motion, after draining a shot, turns around and shakes a senator’s hand, who is there to greet him. He looks like Kurt Cobain, and is a complete douche.”

It goes without saying, but treat the above with a pinch of salt for now. Even if true, in typical Lex fashion, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the long hair actually be a badly-fitted wig.

As well as Eisenberg, DAWN OF JUSTICE will also feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and unconfirmed roles for Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey and Tao Okamoto. In fact, Okamoto has recently been rumoured to be playing Mercy Graves, so often an assistant of Lex’s.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is currently set for a 6th May 2016 release.
