A report over at Latino Review claims to have new details on the Lex Luthor we’ll see in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel and indicates that the casting of Jesse Eisenberg actually fits this interpretation of the character quite well.
Amongst the details garnered is that Lex not only has a shaved head but also body art including a “detailed sleeve tattoo of the Metropolis skyline on his right arm”. Here’s the full description:
“Lex is also the richest man on the planet who became a self made billionaire at 18. Lex is currently the CEO of Lexcorp who is one part tech genius, one part ruthless business man and two parts Metropolis street tough. Yes, street tough.
At 14 Lex was living on the streets and for survival was initiated into a street gang. He learned early on that there was someone always bigger and stronger but never smarter. By 15 that street gang was answering to him. According to Lex, strength isn’t everything. Resolve is.”
The report also goes into detail about our first encounter with Lex in the film. Head over to Latino Review to read that.
There’s a disclaimer with the report that Chris Terrio is currently re-writing the script which means everything above is subject to change.
