Man Of Steel's Lex Luthor Described As Richard Branson And Brad Pitt Combination

While it's been reported that director Zack Snyder has already signed on to direct the Man Of Steel sequel, it's unknown what villain Superman will be squaring off against in Man Of Steel 2. However, it's a pretty good bet that Superman's archnemesis Lex Luthor will be making an appearance in the sequel, regardless of if he turns out to be the central villain or not. So what will the latest incarnation of Lex Luthor look like? Well, director Zack Snyder has offered up a rather interesting description of Superman's most famous bald-headed villain to Yahoo Movies. Zack Snyder said, "I don't know. I think you'd just have to imagine like a combination of, you know, Richard Branson and Brad Pit I guess, mixed together." Of course, neither Richard Branson nor Brad Pitt is bald, so could Lex Luthor be sporting a full head of hair and maybe even a beard in the Man Of Steel sequel? From the description, we're envisioning Alexander "Lex" Luthor II. That was the identity that Lex Luthor used in a nineties storyline where he had his mind transferred into a younger clone body, which had red hair and a beard. We're also thinking that Zack Snyder's description means that Lex Luthor will be a suave, attractive businessman in the Man Of Steel universe. Likely someone who is known for being somewhat of an adventurer and for being popular with the ladies.
