A report has revealed some spoilers for "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" pertaining to the look of Jesse Eisenberg's character Lex Luthor and the image of the LexCorp Company.
An anti-government demonstrator dressed as Batman yells slogans accompanied by passengers on a bus, during a protest against the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro June 12, 2014. Placard reads "We want to be the champions in healthcare, education and not just in football."
One of the significant features of Superman's arch-nemesis Lex Luthor is his hair. There are comics and adaptations where he has hair, but he's always destined to lose it. That may be the case for Lex Luthor actor Jesse Eisenberg in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice."
A new report from batman-news revealed that Lex Luthor actor Jesse Eisenberg was spotted with hair while filming "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" over the past two days.
The report said that there were some LexCorp scenes being filmed where Jesse Eisenberg was seen with a lot of hair and it's not even his usual curly hair. He had dirty-blonde hair (in the comics Lex Luthor's hair is red) which was a bit longer and kind of loose and wavy.
Although batman-news did note that these scenes were filmed towards the beginning of "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" so there's still a chance that Jesse Eisenberg would stick to Lex Luthor's defining aspect and go bald later in the movie.
As for Lex Luthor's demeanor, batman-news reported that Jesse Eisenberg's Luthor has spastic mannerisms, likening them to a 20-something guy that fuels on energy drinks all day.
A source also told comicbook that Jesse Eisenberg's interpretation of Lex Luthor in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is much better compared to how it sounded from initial descriptions. The source described Lex Luthor as a "slimy businessman we can all despise."
The source further added that people will hate Jesse Eisenberg's interpretation of Lex Luthor.
"You are going to hate this guy. You are going to root for him to be punched by Superman when he weasels his way out of legal trouble," the source said.
Lex Luthor in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is cocky and confident because he is that good at what he does. Knowing that he is a billionaire, he feels he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman.
This power is evident in one of the aforementioned scenes being filmed towards the beginning of the movie where the US Senator (played by Holly Hunter) and the Congressman visited Lex Luthor and according to Comicbook, Lex seemed to embarrass or was being very disrespectful to the congressman on his way out.
The source also added that Lex Luthor's security force in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" ranged from mall cop to SWAT force type security, adding that LexCorp is a high-tech mega billion company with a shiny surface.
"It's Apple/Google, colorful and consumer friendly public image but serious potential for Lex's deviousness," the source said.
"Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens May 16, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Afflec (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonderwoman), Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Laurence Fishburne. Rumours have surfaced that Jason Momoa will also star as Aquaman however Warner Bros. hasn't confirmed this yet.
