RUMOR: BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN To Feature Two Of The Man Of Steel's Villains

A new report claims that there will be TWO villains in Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman, both of whom will be members of the Man of Steel's rogues gallery rather than the Caped Crusader's! Doomsday? Lex Luthor? Metallo? Who do you guys think it will be? Read on for details!

So far, Batman Vs. Superman (which is looking more and more like Justice League as the weeks go by) has found its two lead characters and Wonder Woman, but the next major casting addition which has fans puzzled is that of the lead villains. 300: Rise of an Empire's Callan Mulvey has been mentioned, while Lex Luthor, Doomsday and Metallo are the characters so far rumoured to be in the movie. Well, Batman-On-Film now claims that there will indeed be TWO villains in Batman Vs. Superman, both of whom will be from the Superman universe. That means we probably shouldn't expect to see likes of The Joker and Scarecrow make an appearance, but it's best to take this information with the usual pinch of salt for the time being. Who would you guys like to see The World's Finest duo face off against? Sound off with your thoughts below!

I'm thinking either a Lex/Metallo combo or Lex/Doomsday combo
Nick56 - 12/7/2013, 1:44 PM
I think the secondary villain will be the main antagonist but Lex will be pulling the strings
BatManiac - 12/7/2013, 1:44 PM
Lex Luthor and Metallo!

I'd like Lex Luther and Metallio, simply because of Cyborg.
superherofan21 - 12/7/2013, 1:46 PM
Eh, that kinda sucks. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the movie will still be good. I was just hoping to see a new Batman villain introduced.

While I'd love to see Lex and Metallo together...to be honest, we might not ever again get a Batman/Superman flick...I feel like it should be a villain team-up too.



I know it's heresy, but I think it's time we seriously considered recasting The Joker.
JoeMomma29 - 12/7/2013, 1:53 PM
I think Lex and Metallo!
Reasonnnn - 12/7/2013, 1:53 PM
I really hope for Lex and Deathstroke :)

@BlackJack10

Wonder Woman will be involved with the action. They haven't announced her this early and before the villains because she is playing a small role. They have announced her because they know there is no way they can keep her involvement a secret, obviously because she plays a big role. They wouldn't announce who will have a cameo before the main cast.

I'm thinking Batman & Superman will take Lex, while Wonder Woman will take Metallo, that's of course if Lex & Metallo are the villains.

Lex Luthor and....... Darkseid!!!

Pretty sure their going to save Darkseid for the Justice League movie ....... *looks at this movie's cast*....... Wait a minute!!!
MrCBM56 - 12/7/2013, 1:59 PM
I think MONGUL should be the secondary villain. I think he should come to Earth and capture Superman to fight on World War. Superman has to Fight WW, who has also been kidnapped. While gone Bruce goes to Metropolis to find out why Superman is gone and takes up his mantle. Superman, after he and WW escape together, finds out Batman is thier. Tgey fight and blah blah.

Meanwhile Lex is making an army of drones to go up against Superman incase he goes rouge, buts it's really to kill superman. John Corben is the leader if the drones.

Superman tries to destroy the drone but the kryptonite weakens him. Knowing he can't do this by himself, he and Batman make up but Batman telling him he and Superman aren't friends though.

Even with Batman and Superman, that's not enough. Superman gets the aid of WW by visiting her on Paradise island. She agrees to help. The climax happens and the heroes win.

WW says she will always be here if needed and goes back to the island.

Batman leaves back to Gotham and tells Superman to never show his face there. Superman tests him and tells him he will do whatever he wants because superman.

Superman arrives in Gotham and Batman, in his TDKR costume fights Superman and ultimately winning. They make a truce to stay out of eachother way but to Also come back and team up when needed.

Back in metropolis Lex is making his power suit.

Post credit scene reveals Bruce in his bat cave looking at footage of the newly found superhero Flash. Alfred asks why is he looking at that since he doesn't agree with these new heroes showing up and Bruce says it's for a top secret project code name Justice League.

Alfred turns into Martian Manhunter and reveal that he's been waiting for Batman to say that. Bruce asks who are you and where is Alfred. MM says Alfred is fine but he needs Batman help.

^just how I think the basic plot should go.

@superherofan21, it's a Man of Steel sequel so I feel it's only fitting to use Superman's villains. Batman's villains could be introduced in Batman's film.
SuperCat - 12/7/2013, 2:00 PM
Gotta have Lex.
MrMartinMarvel - 12/7/2013, 2:00 PM
I say Luthor and Doomsday!
quasi95 - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
Lex and Metallo would be the most logical rouges at this point of the Superman story

Can't wait for Mongol to show up :)
StrangerX - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
I would prefer Lex and Joker, but im cool with whatever as long as Wondy is in it.
l0rdleg0las - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
Lex and Metallo. And there had better be a new Joker in the new Batman movies. Sad suicide or not it does not make it right to never use an iconic character again.

And don't give me shit about the suicide instead of accidental OD crap. You take that many different pills in that high of doses you know you're probably not waking up from that nap.
MrCBM56 - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
Wow. So many errors in my last comment. Pretty good for typing on an iPhone though.
JULEZ13 - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
It's way too early in the franchise to bring in Doomsday.

Lex and Metallo will be perfect.

I agree with a poster above, who knows when will be the next Superman/Batman team up film?? Joker and Lex would've been epic!

Bradley Cooper for the new Joker, whenever he is due to arrive!
DelTorite - 12/7/2013, 2:02 PM
I really want a Victor Fries cameo.
Dmon - 12/7/2013, 2:03 PM
Lex Luthor and Metallo!
Vegeta - 12/7/2013, 2:03 PM
willem dafoe as the joker
JoeMomma29 - 12/7/2013, 2:04 PM
@ MrCBM56

Dude you should get an award for typing that on a IPhone, Bravo!!!!!!
DurtyTalynt - 12/7/2013, 2:05 PM
Lex/brainiac
JULEZ13 - 12/7/2013, 2:06 PM
Darkseid could work too.... I don't really care since we all know it's going to be a villain we have never seen on screen before. As long as it isn't Doomsday, I'm good.
JoeMomma29 - 12/7/2013, 2:06 PM
@ DurtyTalynt

I would crap my pants if it was Brainiac but I think they are saving him for a solo Superman movie in the future.
BlackIceJoe - 12/7/2013, 2:07 PM
I think Lex will be in the film but he won't show his hand yet. He will be the guy who looks really nice to the world but behind closed doors he shows his true colors.

I think with Henry Cavill's comment about S.T.A.R. Labs means that Parasite might be the Villain. Plus Atomic Skull both have a history that relates to S.T.A.R Labs. So I think those two as the bad guys could work.
Vegeta - 12/7/2013, 2:07 PM
lex luthor responsible for metallo, partially for 'awakening' doomsday
BatManiac - 12/7/2013, 2:07 PM
Considering Kara Zor-El was in the preview comic, the movie could be partially based on The Supergirl From Krypton arc, similar to the animated movie Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.

If that's the case, then Darkseid will likely be the villain.
McNyagano - 12/7/2013, 2:08 PM
Probably Lex and Metallo.
AmazingFantasy - 12/7/2013, 2:08 PM
This has everything in it
GoldenOne33 - 12/7/2013, 2:08 PM
Lex Luthor and Metallo.
Moohika - 12/7/2013, 2:08 PM
Luthor/Metallo or Luthor/Brainiac
MrCameron - 12/7/2013, 2:09 PM
Luthor and Metallo.

Can't you see it's painfully obvious.
Nomis1800 - 12/7/2013, 2:09 PM
Lex and Metallo would be nice!

Really hope they're using IMAX camera's!
V - 12/7/2013, 2:10 PM
Lex and brainiac ... like the new 52 ... what better way to defeat an alien with another alien
Praetorian - 12/7/2013, 2:10 PM
Why does everyone think Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman and not Mercy Graves? Did Snyder actually say that?
ALegendaryPanda - 12/7/2013, 2:11 PM
Save Darkseid for JL and Doomsday for MoS 3.
sintzu - 12/7/2013, 2:11 PM
there not going to have batman and wonder woman if it's a weak villian so one must be doomsday
JoeMomma29 - 12/7/2013, 2:11 PM
