"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Lex Luthor'

Take another look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing a young 'Lex Luthor' on the Detroit, Michigan set of the "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

The original 'Alexander Joseph "Lex" Luthor', created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted in "Action Comics" #23 (April 1940), with a full head of red hair, described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.

Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.

In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. Blaming Superman, Luthor vowed revenge.

In newer versions of the character, Luthor became a wealthy industrialist, thanks to the patents on his numerous inventions, but still possessed with a jealous and burning desire to rid the world of 'Superman'.

"...'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice' is directed by Zack Snyder and written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars Henry Cavill as 'Superman/Clark Kent' and Ben Affleck as 'Batman/Bruce Wayne'. Cast also includes Amy Adams as 'Lois Lane', Laurence Fishburne as 'Perry White', Diane Lane as 'Ma Kent', Jesse Eisenberg as 'Lex Luthor', Ray Fisher as 'Cyborg' and Gal Gadot as 'Wonder Woman/Diana Prince'..."
