Lex's Plan In BATMAN V SUPERMAN Elaborated On; Major Villain Teased

Lex's Plan In BATMAN V SUPERMAN Elaborated On; Major Villain Teased

Last night we posted some possible spoilers for Zack Snyder's currently shooting Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and now Badass Digest would seem to have confirmed they're accuracy, while adding a few very interesting tidbits of their own..

Geek Tyrant posted some info from an extra on the set of Batman V Superman, which revealed that one scene being shot sees Batman break into Lexcorp to steal kryptonite. They also reckon that Lex Luthor himself will have somehow gotten his hands on General Zod's body. Well, Badass Digest now claim to have confirmed that they were on the right track..but added some juicy details of their own.

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.

Yes, they are suggesting that Lex will use Zod's remains to somehow create another villain to take Superman down. Which villain? Well, they also post this image:

That would appear to be Doomsday. Now keep in mind that a lot of this sounds like it comes from that leaked fake script that was doing the rounds, but that doesn't mean it also won't inform the plot of the actual movie. Badass Digest have been accurate in the past at times, and others..not so much -- we'll just have to wait and see. This does sound really cool though I'm sure you'll agree.

I would very much like to read this fake script. Anyone know where I can get my hands on it?
sKeemAn - 8/13/2014, 3:05 PM
how many of these articles are we going to get today?
ManWithNoName - 8/13/2014, 3:05 PM
No to Doomsday
RorMachine - 8/13/2014, 3:05 PM
Sorry, some bad script in the last article..had to repost
SauronsBANE - 8/13/2014, 3:06 PM
It's not Bizarro. Doomsday is most likely going to be set up at the end of BvS as the villain in Justice League.
yonny616 - 8/13/2014, 3:06 PM
For a second I thought someone took down Ror's article.
koolaidbag - 8/13/2014, 3:06 PM
I would prefer the villains be Lex, Bizarro, and one smaller batman villain. It's too soon for doomsday.

synthetic Kryptonite makes superman a superman with more issues

SauronsBANE - 8/13/2014, 3:08 PM
So now that the other comments are gone, can we skip all the BS about this being fake and random CBM users giving Ror advice on how to properly write about scoops?
yonny616 - 8/13/2014, 3:08 PM
Anyway, sounds like bullshit, but then again I don't trust "sources" that isn't official.
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:08 PM
If Doomsday is true, maybe Apokolips is. Lex working with Darkseid?
scruffylookingnerfherder - 8/13/2014, 3:08 PM
So he makes Mr. Myxlplyx. Damn spoilers.
JoeMomma29 - 8/13/2014, 3:09 PM
Well until this movie is released with will not know what is fact or fiction on all these rumors etc.......Or we could ask McNya for a early review and get all the answers right?!?!?!!?
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:09 PM
Why the hell would Luthor even pave the way for an Apokolips invasion though? Maybe the Apokolips thing is horseshit.

"General Dru-Zod had originally created bizarro duplicates of himself to dominate the planet, Krypton. The bizarros had no power because they were not under a yellow sun, but they were soldiers ready to kill and die without hesitation. This was the reason why Zod was banished to the Phantom Zone for 25 Krypton sun-cycles (Phantom Zone #1)."

Anyway, I think there's enough to show that it's been taken from the fake script, but if there's a reason to believe that it's legit then okay.
DaVinci31 - 8/13/2014, 3:10 PM

Wait, so the past few rumors have matched up with the posted script?
Jollem - 8/13/2014, 3:10 PM
and lex was responsible for bizarro's creation a couple few times
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:12 PM
I'm cool with Doomsday AS LONG as they don't try and fool the audience into thinking he's dead. Characters believe he's dead? Cool, but not us as it would make all future deaths feel hollow and empty. Doomsday could also be used thematically too.

@Jollem That's pre-crisis. If Bizzaro was to exist in this universe post-crisis would probably be the main influence.
sKeemAn - 8/13/2014, 3:13 PM
No to Doomsday. Its too early for Superman to die. We all know he's coming back.
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:13 PM
I'd like Bizarro to not be a "rawr rawr evil" thing.
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM

Not every is aware of a location scout. I wasn't.
sKeemAn - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM
Damn, my boy McNy is constantly getting rolled on.
TheRedCondom - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM
Metallo would be [frick]ing sick! But I have a feeling its going to be Doomsday
ALmazing - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM

Jollem - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM
personally, i'd like to see conduit. he was in MoS already

Doopie - 8/13/2014, 3:15 PM
is this a direct quote from this extra? he says 'that would be spoiling it' like he knows more. Is he holding out or faking he knows more?
SauronsBANE - 8/13/2014, 3:17 PM
@Doopie, That "spoiling" line is from the scooper Devin Faraci, a quote from his own article, not the extra.
Jollem - 8/13/2014, 3:17 PM
@Phronesis - with cbms, they are free to do what they'd like, tho. think of cbms as an alternate universe and not so much the actual comics themselves
JAC - 8/13/2014, 3:17 PM
@DaVinci31 Lex's plan seems to be extremely similar to the one in the script.
Phronesis - 8/13/2014, 3:17 PM
Didn't that Scout say that Wonder Woman would be investigating Superman as she believes him to be a New God?
JoeMomma29 - 8/13/2014, 3:17 PM

Reasonnnn - 8/13/2014, 3:18 PM
Lol man, Warner Bros really hedging their bets. Creating 2 Aquaman scripts?? So dumb. If you really had confidence you would've had a treatment already made, and then have someone write the script. aka Marvel

aka i just started something...
JorL5150 - 8/13/2014, 3:18 PM
Be interesting if they made an amalgam of doomsday and bizzaro - and make the monster look like Michael Shannon the way hulk looks like ruffalo

What I'd really like to see is - if they're forcing cyborg on us (dammit [frick]it to hell) then maybe Luthor creates cyborg and metallo (possibly others) and cyborg turns away and helps superman
Pedrito - 8/13/2014, 3:18 PM
This is gonna be another one of those threads, isn't it.
Klone - 8/13/2014, 3:18 PM
...This looks like two [frick]ing storylines at once. TDKR adaption and then this shit with Lex and WW. How the [frick] any of this going to tie together and be well executed I wonder.
