It's confirmed they just renamed Lionel Lex Sr.
This Lex pretty much never left his teenage years.
Nigga, where have you been? With everything we had already seen, it should've been clear by the time the second trailer dropped that Lex's fruity routine was just a face he puts on in public to obfuscate his true nature. Which is something that his other incarnations do as well.
People are too ignorant to listen to you and I, no matter how many times I tell them its all an act for the public, they refuse to listen.
>hurr durr he's more like the joker
thats how you spot an autist
Every shot we've seen from the trailers has him with a full head of hair. And it looks like those shots are from all throughout the movie, including what's probably the third act.
So, like... is he even bald? Does he just become bald at the very end? Is he bald but wearing a wig the entire time? What's up with that?
Even in the scenes where he isn't presenting his public face and is just being evil, he seems pretty flamboyant. Like that shot where he's talking to Lois or when he's creating Doomsday.
Even if it were true, there's no reason you have to be that silly to trick people into thinking you're not evil. You essentially just have to, like, not be evil in front of them.
I liked how the Byrne stuff had Luthor gradually bald through the issues. It kind of made him a nice foil to Superman. Superman is this perfect specimen with a magnificent body. Lex Luthor is very human, and ages and balds.
A lot better than the kind of silly Silver Age thing about Luthor resenting Superman because a scientific issue made him bald forever (but he curiously has no scar tissue on his head or anything). Kind of odd how Waid brought back that hokey element for Birthright. Can't remember if Johns used it in SO or not.
People keep saying that but it doesn't change anything.
It doesn't matter if it's just an act, it's still stupid.
My preferred Lex is man with big brain and big ego. Lex should be too proud to act like a fucking clown in public.
I'm hoping they actually made him terrifying in the film so people walk out legitimately surprised. Same thing with Aquaman, I hope James Wan dials up the horror element.
>people go in thinking Aquaman is lame
>people walk out with a new phobia
so he should act as a arrogant dick instead? nigger he's out there scamming black people, teens and investors in to giving him money for apps and shit, he needs to be quirky, he looks like a modern day billionaire would look like, he doesn't need all the attention, not just yet at least
>so he should act as a arrogant dick instead?
Yes. That's the character I want. I want Lex Luthor to be a man with presence. Someone who is one of the smartest people on the planet and knows it.
In that case don't use a character from fucking 40's (yes, I know he wasn't businessman type then yet, but still).
When I go watch a comic book movie I don't expect a fucking documentary of modern billionaires, I expect comic book characters doing comic book things.
you're like the cucks who bitch and moan about joker being a superstar mobster with tattoos, you know about one version of a character, probably from a cartoon and you constantly want that
take a look at this shit >>79161823 this looks perfect to me, and I know, one way or another, we're getting this at some point in the film, if the quirky faggot thing is a lie, than yeah sure I want to see how it will turn out, I'm willing to give it a chance, it can be good, it can be shit, but I'm not gonna say outright not muh smallville lex or not muh greek animated lex or not muh nu52 lex, or not muh gene hackman lex I don't want it, all of those were different, all of those had great stuff about them, same is gonna be with eisenberg
dude I don't fucking know, lucky palmer, the snapchat guys, whatever random app guys, the billionaires of today, lex is a spoof of that shit
Of course I have my preferences when it comes to a character with multiple iterations across multiple mediums, so no shit.
But I'm also not the guy who is focusing on superficial details like looks. Sure it's important in it's own way, but what matters most to characterization is how character acts and what he says.
And so far nothing that this Lex has done or said has filled me with confidence that he would be a villain to like.
