Who knows-- maybe in post they'll go all Two-Face with the cg enhancements.
I was gonna suggest that myself. Burn make-up is easy, but eye deformity is better in CGI.
Anyway, it an interesting project with a underappreciated character. But it has about a 80% chance of being done badly I'd say.

This photo fills me with hope. I was scared Brolin was a tad too old for the part, but he's lookin' pretty good (and I use the term loosely) as everyone's favorite horribly-deformed gunfighter. Jimmy Palmiotti said on Twitter that he'd read the screenplay and loved it, so I hope that's a good sign and not just cutesy Hollywood BS.
Let's keep our trigger fingers crossed, ladies and gentlemen.

Even we know DC will likely tie in all things Hex through Bronze/Modern Age reprints, merchandising, etc., I hope all parties realize Hex is so far below the pop culture radar, that general audiences may look the other way.

As Iron Man proved, those B and C or even D list character films don't have as much expectation or pressure on hem to perform, so are thus cheaper to make and have a better chance at making bank.
Iron Man is no Spider-Man, but he's still easier to recognize (even in pre-movie merchansing aimed at kids) than Hex. My theory is that as a character not on the top shelf, it will be a low performer like Punisher, and with that, goes the chance to explore the Hex universe.

Jonah Hex is one of the only DC comics whose writing I like right now, so all I can say is if they allow the movie to affect the actual comic in an attempt to make more money post-release, someone is going to have to die.
