In the upcoming "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice," the character of Lex Luthor, to be essayed by Jesse Eisenberg, will not be the rich businessman who is bald. Instead, Luthor will sport a loose and wavy that's dirty blonde hairstyle, not all fans are happy with the change.
There are chances of Luthor showing up bald at the end of the movie, Batman-News reported.
Luthor is the new movie will have long blonde hair? That's so very wrong! Everyone knows classic comics Lex isn't a blonde! He's a ginger!

LexCorp scenes were filmed early last week and according to Batman-News, there's a basketball court in the lobby with a giant 30 foot neon LexCorp industries sign. Eisenberg's Luthor, the report said, is someone with spastic mannerisms, and can be likened to a 20-something guy who consumes energy drinks all day.
News of Eisenberg's introduction as Luthor early this year met with severe backlash as fans of the comic book series felt that Eisenberg would be a poor choice to jump into shoes formerly filled by actors such as Kevin Spacey and Michael Rosenbaum.
But Eisenberg's Luthor will be someone easy to hate, a Comicbook source praised .
Describing Luthor as a slimy businessman, the source said that it is guaranteed that "you are going to hate this guy."
"You are going to root for him to be punched by Supes when he weasels his way out of legal trouble. He is cocky and confident because he is THAT good at what he does. He's a billionaire who knows he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman visiting because he's a billionaire."
"Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is scheduled for a May 16, 2016 release with Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
