Rumours are going wild on Lex Luthor’s role in the new Batman v Superman but so far we only have the official portrait of the man himself in all his bald glory starring Jesse Eisenberg.

Now, according to JoBlo, the mastermind might be donning an armour of some sort, perhaps the same one he has been wearing in the comics and animated versions of the character. We never seen a live action version of Lex Luthor’s armour but there is always a first time for everything. Plus, it would makes sense since he is confronting a very powerful foe.

Perhaps it will be a more down to earth  but grittier version since the director’s sense of aesthetics tends to gravitate there. His own comments regarding Lex Luthor:

He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.”

The rumour also talking about a possible epic confrontation between him and Superman in this very film so the armour will definitely even the odds for the baddie. Afterall, even the Bat have his own suit in this trailer:
