Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, painted in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Intuos Pro. I used a screencap from The Social Network as reference. I'm going to look silly when the movie comes out and he has hair, lol.

According to one of the first versions of Lex, he originally had hair. He was a fan of Superman or Superboy who wanted to make him stronger by getting rid of his weakness to Kryptonite. There was an explosion in the Lab he was working in and he lost all his hair for some reason.
I'm going to give Jesse as Lex the benefit of the doubt. I will admit, I thought it a strange casting, but I wasn't on the hate wagon (maybe because I'm not a huge Superman fan...More of a casual fan you would say)
Wow!! Very nice work!
Personally I'm not a fan of the casting, but willing to go in open minded and give him a chance. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised.
...and I think you're safe, I'm fairly certain I heard somewhere that he will be bald for the film.
