The much-awaited "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will release only in 2016 but leaked images from the sets and rumours about the film's plot details keep surfacing online.

The first set of photos of Jesse Eisenberg as super villain Lex Luthor leaked on social media on Tuesday night. Eisenberg was spotted on the sets, covering his head with a towel/blanket as the actor and the team are trying to keep Luthor's look a secret.

Several websites have reported that Eisenberg might have shaved his head for the super villain role.

Photos, posted on Twitter by Henry Cavill News, have now gone viral.

There are pictures of Henry Cavill and the other actors from the set as well.

But that's not all. Fans also got to know some details about the storyline of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

Eisenberg talked about his character Lex Luthor in the Zack Snyder directorial.

"There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own," Eisenberg told Total Film.

"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."

Discussing the plot of the film, Breathecast reported that the US government will put Superman on trial for some of the events happened in "Man of Steel".

Meanwhile, Batman News reported, quoting an insider, that action scenes involving Superman and the United States Capitol building in Washington DC were shot last month in a Detroit studio.

"Superman will have to answer for what happened at the end of Man of Steel. Half the public blames him for all the death and destruction. If it wasn't for Superman being there, General Zod would have never come to Earth," the insider added.
