In the most recent edition of Fat Man on Batman podcast, Smith has revealed another tidbit about 
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. while discussing with podcast guest Neal Adams the massive death and destruction that occurred during Superman’s fight with Zod in Man of Steel, Smith revealed how all that destruction will play in to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“I guess it’s all integral to their next plot,” said Smith. “Like the word is Lex is very like, ‘We can’t trust this Superman, because look what he did to our city". -Kevin Smith

These glasses are killin my head.
Doopie - 7/1/2014, 9:48 AM
take them off Pasto

it's kind of obvious that Luthor would use this strategy. He'll be running ads and shit to question Supes' integrity like it was a presidential campaign or something. People gotta be pretty dumb to not realise the guy saved the world from an alien invasion though

I'll punch all 3 of you.

You son of a bitch...

Nice find. Considering the destruction of Metropolis has been the biggest source of contention about MoS, it's good that Snyder is incorporating it into the next movie. I'd like to see a contrite Superman that goes above and beyond in BvS to prevent any wanton destruction.

I think we all knew this already.

Lex WILL lose his hair in the movie. That is guaranteed. Everyone in the world knows Lex is Superman's BALD enemy. Probably will lose it to Kryptonite poisoning.

kevin smith is full of shit
DeusExSponge - 7/1/2014, 10:20 AM
Snooper - I too believe that he'll eventually lose his hair during the course of the movie. If not in this movie, then it'll eventually happen later when the Cinematic Universe is in full swing.

No, really?

Nice find, @ Starfox!

Wow that's genius I wonder how the [frick] he guessed that! Oh, that's right, everyone knew this already.
ArmGunar - 7/1/2014, 10:46 AM
Thanks Captain Obvious ...
Ramiel - 7/1/2014, 10:56 AM
Well, duh! You didn't need Smith to tell you that, did you?

@MrReese That knock knock joke is great.
Darktower - 7/1/2014, 11:11 AM
oh ..Really ??!! wow!!... never saw that one coming.
dnno1 - 7/1/2014, 11:18 AM
Neil Adams needs to shut up. He berates both DC and Marvel but yet expects to do work for them in the future. He doesn't even have his facts straight on the subject matter.
Gusto - 7/1/2014, 11:22 AM
I was hoping they were lovers.
TheDufase19089 - 7/1/2014, 11:34 AM
Its more like. "We cant trust superman, because he is Kryptonian, and the Kryptonians tried to destroy the world. He wants to rule us just like they did"
DanteSparda - 7/1/2014, 11:41 AM
Thanks Nomis, you made checking this article worth my while with that pic
Prime - 7/1/2014, 11:50 AM
There is no getting by you Smith.

But to bad Superman didn't destroy the city, it was those damn kryptonians.
DaVinci31 - 7/1/2014, 11:59 AM
This guy is worse than Mark Hughes . . .
Nubase - 7/1/2014, 12:02 PM
the people of metropolis will see superman as the hero, but the powers that be, the military, the goverments of the world will see him as a threat and lex will use this to his advantage and then course theres batman who l'm sure will see him as a threat to begin with and will source what supermans weakness are, l'm sure batman will get his hands of the pulse rifles that zods army used, cos batman will use all the cctv footage of the battle and so will lex

I believe Wonder Woman won't fly in this movie.
