Early rumors from the set of Batman V Superman described LexCorp as a “young” and “edgy” company with a “youthful clash of rock and roll, preppy, and nerdy employees.” Eisenberg, of course, is known for playing Mark Zuckerberg.
ComicBook.com and Batman News have received corroborating reports from the set of Batman V Superman, saying that Eisenberg has long, slightly wavy, dirty blond hair that’s very different to his usual tight curls. There are also some new details about his personality, with Batman News‘ source saying he “has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day.” ComicBook.com‘s source reports that Holly Hunter was on set, and that her character is a U.S. Senator (not Leslie Thompkins, as previously rumored) who visits LexCorp and gets treated very rudely by its CEO. The source elaborates:
[Lex is] a slimy businessman we can all despise. 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.
