I'd like to see a Red Hood movie in the mix at some point too.

@themoviefanatic All these characters have variations to their looks, Lex is no exception to that. He's sometimes been blonde, he's been a redhead. At one point, Superman was the cause of him losing his hair during a bad experiment with chemicals. He's lost his hair to disease, he's lost his hair to an accident with radiation. He's had several incarnations. He's never been just one thing all the time or had one look. In his earliest inception he was relegated to the background not to be seen as a main villain at all. He wasn't always rich or powerful. He's had different purposes and positions due to the time of the story arc and the writers handling those series that saw fit to reinvent him. So there is a lot of material regarding Lex that they can source from to create a whole being suited for the universe they are creating for film.
@themoviefanatic It depends on the interpretation of Lex you know. Lex HAS had hair on his head in several incarnations from television right down to the comic books. Lex is a character of constant change. People just attach themselves to certain images and disregard or simply have no knowledge of varied changes of these characters throughout the time of the tellings of each series.

The thing about Lex is that most people are attached to a certain image of the character. None hardly acknowledge the fact that his is also an evolving character. He wasn't always bald. He isn't always bald. He's had portrayals on screen, albeit not the big screen, but television where he isn't bald. He's been everything from a brilliant scientist with research labs to a real-estate tycoon, to a vagabond that worked his way up from the streets in rise to power. He's been a philanthropist with devious ulterior motives...he's been a politician. Lex doesn't have a character of one dimension to pool from but variations that can be incorporated into one entity on the course of his evolution. None of this is to say that I'm thrilled by what I'm hearing but if this is building up to a dynamic character and one that will ultimately become the formidable force we know him to be, then I'm all for it.

@David-garcia-67788063 Based on what?
@ObiWanShinobi It's also a 20th Century Fox film too. That in itself for something that seems like it could be high profile is enough to cast the slightest doubt.
@Brizzy Same here

I definitely can't wait to see how this develops.

@Movie-Man-Smith I doubt Snyder is working on all of them. At best he's working on, Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Man of Steel 2. JGL is helming Sandman. I'm sure there will be others in line for Wonder Woman and the few other titles noted up there.
