Default The Lex Luthor Suit/Look Thread

Should Luthor be an eccentric young genius that walks around his towers in pajamas?



Or should he wear a traditional suit



Or something casual?

My vision is to have his head shaved and suits that are stylish, not old-manish.
And he can take the suit jacket off for a more casual look. It would still be classic Luthor, but modern.

That kind of suit, with a bald-head. None of this "they should just give him a close cropped look" crud. Make him bald. Bald Luthor communicates something entirely different from a Luthor who still has hair. He becomes unsettling and distinctive, and Eisenberg looks years older with a bald head.

As for color combinations, I've always kind of felt a white suit with a black tie would be a nice combo for at least a formal gathering, to suggest the idea of a wolf in sheepskin clothing.

It's going to depend on how he's written and how much public access he has.

If he's a man of the people drumming up support against Superman, I'd say he's in a traditional suit.

If he's the billionaire mad scientist, wouldn't be mad at pajamas.

I would like to see him bald in tailored suites for most of the movie with a splash of flashbacks of a more casual hipster Lex with hair, maybe something where Lex & Clark met back in school/college/work/whatever. Give me the best of both worlds with bald suit and tie Lex being the more dominant of the looks.

Whatever they do, no hipster outfit please. As for a suit, I feel that may counter the Luthor they are aiming for.

I'd like to see him go sophisticated casual. Without the sophistication the audience may start to not take him seriously

I think we'll see a few different versions of him throughout the film, he won't be in a suit the whole time. Also from those phoos of Eisenberg at the top, with a shaved head I really think he's going to look like the classic, albeit younger, Lex. He has really strong facial features.

I think, should wear something casual. As opposite to Bruce Wayne, who wears rich suits, drives super-cars and pretends to hang out with models in his free time.

Maybe a suit without a jacket and a tie, rolled sleeves... Stuff like that.

On contrary, he can wear something extreme, less official, extravagant. Like that rumor about his skyline sleeve.

Is it odd that I want the disheveled hair (if they let him keep his hair) and the suit?

I posted this in the Manip thread as well, but this thread is perfect for it!

I took some liberties with the Kryptonite and keeping Lex's hair, but I just wanted to make a scene to see how it looked...that's the angriest I could morph Jesse's face without it getting too weird...that dude's pictures look all the same online

I've been dying to see him in the battlesuit/powersuit! I also think that it would help Lex get over with the public.

Not if the big blue boy scout buries him with the casuals.

My vision for Lex as he has been described by reports:

Quote:
Supposedly, Eisenberg's Luthor will be into tattoos big time, and have a sleeve of the Metropolis skyline down his right arm. He also became a self-made billionaire at 18, and is the CEO of Lexcorp.

Despite currently being a ruthless businessman and complete tech genius, he's also got street smarts. At the age of 14 Lex was on the streets and it wasn't long before he was initiated into a street gang. Within a year, he was their boss. His resolve is his main weapon, and alongside being incredibly intelligent he's also got where he is thanks to his own hard work.

Which is why he isn't a huge fan of Bruce Wayne, who he believes had his success handed to him. This explains why the first meeting between the pair early in the film is so tense, when Wayne pays Luthor a visit in his Lexcorp Tower penthouse. Bruce is impressed by Superman, Lex views him as an alien invader who shoudn't be here.

Wayne wants to pool their resources to philanthropically rebuild Metropolis and, while Lex is sceptical, he reckons he can use Wayne Enterprises and Bruce for his own ends. While Mr. Wayne believes there to be a peaceable resolution available with Superman, Luthor reckons there's a different solution, and one that can be achieved without him having to go anywhere near the front line himself. Which is where Batman comes in.
