Lex Luthor’s plan to defeat Superman revealed for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’?


Zacn Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not out for almost two years, but people are desperate to find out new information on the film. No plot synopsis has been officially released yet, but we have seen images of Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill returning as Superman and also Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Up until now all we knew of the films villain was that Jesse Eisenberg will be playing Lex Luthor, but we have yet to see any images of Eisenberg in character, and we don’t really know what his master plan will be in the new film. What we do know is that Dawn of Justice will begin to setup the Justice League movie which will follow on directly from Batman v Superman, and already there are rumours of Aquaman (Jason Momoa) being in the film, and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) has already been confirmed.

Now, thanks to a quote from an extra on the film, part of Luthor’s plan to defeat Superman has been revealed, so read on if you would like to find out, but be warned BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!


Geek Tyrant revealed the quote from the extra, and that person revealed part of the films ending, which hints that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will follow on directly from Man of Steel:

According to the extra, the ending of the film has already been filmed. One of the scenes shot featured Batman breaking into Lexcorp to steal kryptonite, and apparently Lexcorp had somehow gotten ahold of General Zod’s body.

So Luthor is plans to use Zod’s body in his plan to defeat Superman? While you could argue that this is just hearsay, another source has also confirmed the news. BadAssDigest backed up the quote by stating:

“I can confirm this. Lex has been gathering pieces and debris from the World Engine and he has used them to synthesize Kryptonite. Meanwhile he has also gotten ahold of Zod’s corpse, and it is the key to his master plan to defeat Superman. He uses that tissue to… well, that would be spoiling. But Superman hasn’t been defeated many times in the past. You can probably connect the dots from here”

While I am not as up on all the Superman and Batman stuff as some people, the above statement has lead many websites to believe this means Doomsday will play a part in Snyder’s new film, something which has been rumoured for quite some time.

No doubt the rumours will continue until Warner Brothers reveal some concrete details.


Filming is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as BruceWayne/Batman.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel,” Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
