Batman v Superman or, as earlier perceived, Man of Steel 2 was announced amidst huge fanfare last year at the 2013 Comic-Con and now reports suggest that several new revelations will be made regarding the eagerly-awaited film at the upcoming 2014 San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), scheduled to be held in July.
Fans seem quite excited about rumours suggesting that Warner Bros, DC and director Zack Snyder might be showing an awesome first piece of footage from the upcoming film at the SDCC, reports El Mayimbe of the Latino Review.

If that's true, it'll be pretty cool to find out if the recent rumour - stating that the Batmobile has a unique feature that allows it to turn into the flying Batwing – is true!
Meanwhile, Batman-news.com has given an indication, citing sources, about actor Jesse Eisenberg's look as Lex Luthor.
"It's not Eisenberg's typical curly look — it's a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it's dirty blonde. Eisenberg's Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day. I'm told that the scenes shot take place towards the beginning of the movie... so maybe there's still a chance that Lex Luthor could show up bald by the end? We'll have to wait and see," states Chris Begley of Batman-news.
Something like this maybe?

Over the last several days, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been filming scenes in Michigan which are set at LexCorp, and reports have indicated that those scenes involved Jesse Eisenberg playing a blonde-haired Lex Luthor.
According to a Comicbook.com source, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice's interpretation of Lex Luthor is much better than it might sound from initial descriptions, and described him as "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," said the source.
