I hope that rumor is false, if it's true, it sounds worse than I imagined. SMH.

Let's just see what the changes are.

Bald - long blonde locks
Suits - plaid shirts, vests and jeans
Serious personality - hyped up on redbull
Oppressive company - hippy, swinging and dancing, basketball playing clubhouse


This is how I imagine him. He's a spoilt, narcissistic brat. He has a lot of issues, despite his fame and wealth. He pays for the company he keeps. A girlfriend is probably only with him because of his money and he knows it, probably abusive towards her. Perhaps even threatens her life and loved ones if she left him. People only pretend to like him, has a lot of yes men around him, and they do whatever he says. He enjoys the power he has, but deep inside, he's extremely angry and quick to temper. He gives to charity, but secretly envies those who receive help, especially if he came from a bad background. Bullied a lot growing, and has a major chip on his shoulder. Has problems with authority, especially if he murdered his parents, like in the comics. Keeps himself constantly preoccupied to keep himself from being alone with his thoughts and probably gets little sleep, which can't be good on his psyche. Hates bullies and those that try to steal his thunder, based on his past.
Will threaten and carry out any attack, as long as it's not traceable back to him, and he's used to it, because of his deviousness and protection.

Lex Luthor with hair (among other things) comes... from the comics:

Quote:
Luthor is a wealthy, power-mad business magnate of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess. Luthor's goals typically center on killing Superman, the foremost obstacle to achieving the villain's megalomaniacal goals.

Lex Luthor typically appears in comic books and other media as a bald business magnate with immense wealth and corporate power. However, Luthor was originally depicted as a mad scientist who, in the vein of pulp novels, wreaks havoc on the world with his futuristic weaponry. The character was later remodeled as a magnate and industrialist. In his earliest appearances, Luthor is shown with a full head of red hair. Despite this, the character later became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory, a fire which Luthor blamed on Superboy, who was attempting to save Luthor from a lifeform Luthor had created in vitro that was threatening to kill Luthor.

Following the 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths, the character was re-imagined as a Machiavellian industrialist and white-collar criminal, even briefly serving as President of the United States. In recent years, various writers have revived Luthor's mad scientist persona from the 1940s.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lex_Luthor
Of course Snyder knows all this as the fanboy he is, his Lex seems to be a mix of the genius and business magnate.

Wikipedia? Not the DC Comics Wikia? Must be false!

The changes sound both undesirable and unlikely, to me. They amount to a description of characters that Eisenberg has already played.

Like I said, I can deal with the hair. He eventually loses it always anyways. But I was hoping to see a serious Lex on screen. We could still get that. Either the rumor is false, or he eventually becomes Lex from the comics. The business Lex, not the mad scientist Lex.

I already had enough of silly Lex, who comes up with crazy plans, with Gene Hackman's and Kevin Spacey's portrayal.

Dude, they're not going to do a campy Lex, it doesn't fit with the tone of this universe.

Though I suspect that you are right, I think that the tone of MoS was more elastic than that of the Dark Knight trilogy, and we don't know how similar the BvS will be in that respect.

Our source also offered that they felt that Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice’s interpretation of Lex Luthor is much better than it might sound from initial descriptions, describing him as “a slimy businessman we can all despise.” Our source indicated, “You are going to hate this guy. You are going to root for him to be punched by Supes when he weasels his way out of legal trouble. He is cocky and confident because he is THAT good at what he does. He's a billionaire who knows he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman visiting because he's a billionaire.”

Our source also indicated that Lex’s security force at LexCorp ranged from mall cop to SWAT force type security. In regards to LexCorp, our source indicated, “This is a high tech mega billion company with a shiny veneer. It's Apple/Google, colorful and consumer friendly public image but serious potential for Lex's deviousness.”

If he isn't bald, couldn't they at least have made it red?

The characterization sounds quite interesting to me though.

secrecy before a movie starts production is easy...maintaining secrecy during production with hundreds of crew, extras and lookie-lous is next to impossible.
