According to new photos from the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice it looks as though Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will be bald.
Recent images to have emerged from Detroit have given eagle-eyed superhero fans their first look at Eisenberg on the set of Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel follow-up. They weren’t taken while filming was taking place, and instead show Eisenberg chatting with a member of the film’s cast or crew. These photos certainly gave fans a clear image of the actor as the super-villain.
However, Eisenberg made sure to cover up his head, which has increased speculation that the Social Network star has shaved off his hair in order to play the character.
The pictures came courtesy of Henry Cavill News, and you can check them out below:

It certainly looks as though Eisenberg has done something striking with his hair, especially since he has gone to great lengths to hide it from view.
Whether he’s decided to part with all of his bouffant or taken on a red curly mop in order to play the character remain to be seen though. According to Comic Book Movie, previous reports had suggested his Luthor would actually have hair.
Meanwhile, Eisenberg has confirmed that his version of Lex Luthor will be “complicated.” Talking to Total Film, the Oscar nominated actor explained, “There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own.”
He then added, “I got to know one of the writers, Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I’ve been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person.”
Eisenberg will star alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill’s Batman and Superman respectively in the hugely anticipated superhero hybrid. Snyder will once again direct Warner Bros’ blockbuster, from a David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio script, which is also set to star Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot and Holly Hunter, and is set to be a pre-cursor to a Justice League movie.
