Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

My guess is that he won't be bald.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

It seems like no time ago that Eisenberg was linked to the role of Jimmy Olsen. I didn't anticipate them going so young but I like the idea of Lex as a youthful Zuckerberg-type entrepreneur.

Edit - with MOS having a redhead Lois and a black Perry, I would also be surprised if Lex was bald. Crew cut haircut maybe?

Irons as Alfred is a more conventional choice but, again, I like it.

In MOS, though, for my money, the casting was excellent but the movie as a whole disappointed. Here's hoping that the strength of this cast is matched by a stronger script and more coherent direction from Snyder.

I'm not saying he needs to be bald, but it would be nice to see if he actually can get a different haircut from every other movie role he's had.

Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor is truly inspired casting and a great way to go against the usual "vogue bald actor of the month" sensibility that was being touted around so often around the Internet the past couple months.

So true, before he shaved his head for Breaking Bad, no one would have thought to cast Cranston as Luthor.

I'm totally unfamiliar with this Eisenberg guy.

But we've had non-bald Luthors before. Gene Hackman was only willing to do a couple of bald scenes, so his Luthor wore a variety of wigs. Scott Wells as college-age Lex in the '88 Superboy had hair. John Shea's Lex on Lois and Clark was reinterpreted as a romantic rival for Clark and thus was good-looking with a full head of hair.

I've never understood the Jesse Eisenberg/Michael Cera comparisons. They look nothing alike and Eisenberg is a far better actor.

They're both similar ages, nerdy and Jewish. That's it really.

He'll probably be a billionaire tech mogul. Bear in mind that Mark Zuckerberg is only 29.
