Red face So... Luthor "Bald and the Beautiful" or "When Hairy Met Sally?"

How do you want them to handle Lex's hair (or lack of) ?

I think it is time to say goodbye to wigs. He should either be bald, have hair, or even become bald at a later point in the movie (accident/experiment)

I think it would be interesting if at the very beginning he had a full head of hair. Then as he is unveiling something for Lexcorp an accident occurs. Superman saves him, they show him at home as a nurse unwraps gauze around his head, showing he is now totally bald. Maybe he says something like "He thinks because he flies above us, he is above us... I will show him who has the true power in Metropolis."

That woud work too. I am just a detail oriented person and I always think of what a moviegoer might ask. I can see someone say "Why is he bald?" and it would be cool to have an explanation. Maybe fun if it connects to Superman too

I wonder if they will take a cue from the comics and have Lex and Clark having known each other for years, or if its when Clark first goes to Metropolis that they meet...could be interesting.

Seems to be the consensus so far, and I'm good with that. I would still find it interesting in a flashback (like GreenK stated) or if there is an event in the movie involving Supes causing/factoring in it.

I like exposition personally. I think it would be cool if the movie did explain aspects that people in the audience question.

Maybe they can just reference it with a one liner during the movie. A reporter asks Lex "So why the bald look?" and he answers "Who needs an expensive haircut in this economy?"

It is not the most ordinary thing to see a white dude totally bald. Just a fact. People will think it, so why not either answer or reference it in someway?

Attention to detail isn't a bad thing

No need to defend yourself if you do want to see it explained/or referenced. Like I said, a billionaire suave white dude... People will think "Why is he bald?" naturally

^ lmao, raybia.

I think it should be bald from the beginning. And I definitely wouldn't be against the flashback idea to explain it (if it's a good explanation), although I personally don't think that it's something so important that it needs explained. Really the only way I would want to see that is if they had some fantastical reasoning behind him being bald and it ties into Clark's background, otherwise I view it as being pretty pointless.

Really?

REALLY?

I'm sorry if this sounds hostile, but if someone asks that, they not only need to be beaten with GreenKToo's 2x4, but castrated so they don't contaminate the gene pool.

Let's set something straight, Lex's baldness isn't his superpower, and it shouldn't be his main motivation to go after Superman. This isn't like not explaining how Superman came to Earth, or why Bruce Wayne is Batman, or where Hal Jordan got his nifty ring.

Yeah, I'll admit, there is an origin to Lex's baldness in the comics somewhere, but just because that exists doesn't mean the average person would question that a normal man is bald, which is a common condition among men.

I prefer Lex bald.

yea really we dont need to have much of a reason for him being bald, sure if they had a reason that is good too. But yea bald is in these days and a norm.

For those who are familiar with SupermanTAS, should that series be in large part the basis for the next movie including the characterization of Luthor and his baldness?

Obviously you don't have to explain it. I'm just saying that if you do explain it/or even just reference it, that could be a good thing detail wise. The bigger point is I don't want any solution that involves wigs again, PERIOD.

Agree on the wigs thing, man. But I really don't think this needs it's own thread. Not trying to be an as*hole dude, but this is kinda like if I would make a thread about whether Lois should have brown or black hair.
