Lots of potential spoilers here if these rumors turn out to be true. Go back to the Batman News homepage now if you don’t want to know anything about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice plot.
An extra who said he worked on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for 10 days contacted GeekTyrant with the following:
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.
He went on to talk about the timeframe of the movie and where it picks up, saying that it starts “as the battle between Superman and General Zod ends or is ending (which would explain all the damaged buildings and vehicles we’ve been seeing in photos) and Batman/Bruce Wayne is attempting to make his way to the Wayne tower in Metropolis.”
That article was sent to me quite a bit over the past 24 hours, but I was a little skeptical… until now. Badass Digest is chiming in as well today, confirming the rumors from the GeekTyrant article and adding some new details of their own:
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.
Doomsday? Bizarro? Metallo?
