    As GammaSquad points out, this is pretty clearly a wig Jesse Luthorberg is wearing in this fan encounter pic, either to cover his bald noggin or whatever other hairstyle Gen Y Lexypoo will have in Dawn of Justice. Snyder & co. are not playing around with the secrecy here. Wait, does this mean Eisenberg has to wear a wig every time he goes out in public while filming his part of Dawn of Justice?

    If you've been following the evolution of the next Superman movie (reportedly titled Superman vs Batman, but that's a stupid title so I'm going to refer to it as Batfleck Gives Fans Aneurysms: The Movie, or BGFA:TM for short), you'll know that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has been heavily rumored to play Lex Luthor.
