File this under “We’re Really Stuck For News About Batman Versus Superman.” There have been leaks of set photos that showed us exciting things like how buff Ben Affleck is, minor modifications to Superman’s suit, and – hold the front page! – Gal Gadot getting into a car. Now fans who’ve been wondering about Jesse Eisenberg’s appearance have a photo of him with floppy, straight locks. Because you needed to see this.
Fans have been contemplating if Eisenberg would keep his signature curls (I can’t believe I just wrote that), or if he would shave his head and go for the classic bald Lex Luthor from the DC comics. Did you know that Luthor is only bald because one day a DC artist forgot to draw his hair? Now you do. From the photo, it looks as if Eisenberg has made the bold choice to make Superman’s nemesis look about as threatening as a reject from a boy band. Fans are not fooled, though, believing the magnificent head of hair to be a wig. “Taking a closer look at the image seems to reveal the hair just lays on top, with a bald hairline,” reports Matt McGloin at Cosmic Booknews. There hasn’t been this much attention paid to a movie star’s hair since Tom Hanks shocked the world with a straight, flowy hairdo in The Da Vinci Code.
