‘Man Of Steel’ director Zack Snyder has revealed how his ‘modern Lex Luthor' would look. And it’s a  hairier choice than you’d think…

“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," Snyder told Yahoo! Movies UK. "Mixed together!"

“They had a child, through science!” he laughed.

It’s a weird choice Zack. But what does it mean?

The ‘300’ director was on the promo trail for the now record-breaking ‘Man Of Steel’ when he revealed his left-field vision for Superman’s nemeis - picking two famously long maned men for the usually clean scalped character of Luthor. See Gene Hackman in 'Superman II', or Kevin Spacey in ‘Superman Returns’…


So what do we make of Snyder's on-the-spot answer? Revealing choice, simple response or maybe even a double bluff? Who can know? But with the ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel already fast-tracked, are we about to see a hairy Lex?

If they made Jimmy Olsen a girl, they can definitely give Luthor some locks…
