'Batman V Superman' Set Photos: Is Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor Bald?

Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg Batman Superman Discussion

When actor Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor for Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was just the latest casting move to become a lightning rod for controversy, after Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. We've already made our case for why The Social Network star could work as Superman's arch nemesis, but there's a vocal number of fans that still need convincing he's the right man for the job.

One of the biggest points of contention has been whether or not the Oscar nominee will go bald to attain Luthor's classic look from the comics. Earlier rumors based on set reports indicated that Eisenberg's young, trendy Lex would have a full mane of long, dirty blond hair. However, we still haven't seen what Eisenberg will look like in the Man of Steel followup (officially, that is), making it hard to judge the validity of those rumors.

Now, thanks to a leaked set photo, we do have our first look of Eisenberg on location. Unfortunately, he's covering his head, so fans still won't be able to tell what this version of Luthor looks like.
