We have seen the official trailer; we have seen the first looks. However, one question that still remains unanswered is who could the villain of the movie be? Early reports suggested that it is Doomsday, “Superman“’s primary enemy who will be the antagonist in the movie. But a new report suggests that he is not.
According to Movie Pilot, for all those who think Doomsday is the antagonist in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” think again. There are a couple of reasons that prove that there is one such enemy of Superman who could fit in as a better antagonist than Doomsday. For all those who are aware, Lex Luthor was hell bent on destroying Superman and would go to any extent to do so. He had also quite successfully cloned Superman aka Bizzaro, who was more like a mirror image to Superman. With the portrayal of the character that was shown in the “Superman” animated series, it also tells you that he was neither bright nor had any good intentions. There are a couple of other theories to support this claim.
Firstly with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman a part of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” introducing Doomsday will be too much for just three heroes to handle. It will actually need a “Justice League” to take the monster down.
Secondly, it would be hard to imagine that Doomsday was created from General Zod. Bizarro, on the other hand, looks like a character that could have been created using Zod’s DNA or body since the specifications quite match each other. The one person who can actually pull something like this is none other than Lex Luthor who would want to create a creature who is someone like Superman and who could actually stand in a battle with him. Thirdly, the heat vision that Batman escapes from in the trailer, it looks more like something that Bizarro can create.
Finally, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor is heard mentioning, “The Red Capes are coming!” Other than Superman himself, it is only Bizarro who wears a red cape, so it only consolidates the theory.
Whoever the villain in the movie be, it is finally good to see DC Cinematic Universe taking shape and the excitement and response surrounding “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” proves just that. The movie is set to release on March 23, 2016.
