Ok, we’re all aware Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars the two, titular DC icons butting heads and destroying the hell out of an unsuspecting warehouse district as Batman disapproves of one man (or alien) wielding unchecked, illimitable abilities. We also know that, in the middle of a battle with Doomsday – which occurs sometime after Batman and Superman fist-bump and join forces to face a common foe – Wonder Woman makes her grand entrance and saves Batman from Doomsday’s deadly (and slightly unsettling) face-laser. And yes, we know that Lex Luthor is very directly linked to the creation of Doomsday, seeing as how he’s procured Zod’s remains.
So, we know all of this, and we feel confident in our accumulated knowledge divined from trailers, interviews, revealed plot-points, and…yes, more trailers. But there’s something missing, something right on the tips of our collective tongues that we’ve seen or heard before. Something….Oh, WAIT! The title of the movie actually contains words AFTER ‘Batman v Superman!’ Which words? DAWN OF JUSTICE! That’s right; Batman v Superman is supposed to introduce members of the Justice League! So…what’s up with that??
Our friends at Latino-Review might have some pertinent information regarding this particular point. Before I continue, I should mention that the content of Latino-Review‘s article is based on rumor. Secondly, if what they’re reporting is remotely accurate, then what I’m about to convey is, technically, spoiler-filled. Proceed with caution, is what I’m suggesting. Now, if you’re up to it, let’s continue.
1. Something we’re also aware of (and should have been mentioned in the beginning of this article) is the appearance of Aquaman; we know the actor (Jason Momoa), and we know he looks scary as all get out. Initial reports suggested his introduction was instigated by Zod’s terraforming World Engine and the Indian Ocean’s partial destruction. Latino-Review, however, is now stating the introduction is made through Lex Luthor. Hmmmm. Interesting.
2. Vic Stone, aka Cyborg, will appear briefly, but only as a, “Cameo introduction.”
3. Barry Allen, the Flash (portrayed by actor Ezra Miller), “Comes up for a brief moment (it’s just a blur).” However, Latino-Review mentions that Barry Allen, sans Flash costume, will appear at some point during the film. How long will the scene last? Once again, the word ‘brief’ is being applied.
4. Nope, sorry, no news regarding the inclusion of one or many Green Lanterns. Damn it all to heck!
Again, all of this aforementioned information is currently classifiable as rumor. If these aren’t rumors, then…Sorry? I warned you? Put the rock down, please?
Debuting March 25, 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne. Oh, and probably a lot of unhappy citizens caught in the crossfire when Superman and Batman indulge in a pee-pee contest.
