Latest Batman v Superman rumors involve kryptonite and General Zod's corpse

08.13.2014by:

As filming continues on the highly anticipated 2016 film BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, numerous rumors continue to pop up from those claiming to be in the know. At one point we heard that Jason Momoa was finally confirmed for Aquaman and now we have sources claiming some pretty hefty connections between MAN OF STEEL and Zack Snyder's sequel.

GeekTyrant has posted details from a supposed extra on BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE that will have major implications for the upcoming film as well as JUSTICE LEAGUE and DC films after that. Basically, if these details turn out to be true, they will constitute MAJOR SPOILERS for the upcoming film. So, proceed with caution.

The source claims that the ending to BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has already been filmed and involves Batman breaking into LexCorp. He is there to steal kryptonite which may indicate that Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are not buddies by the end of the film, leading to quite an interesting opening for JUSTICE LEAGUE. But, apparently when Batman gets into the location where the kryptonite is housed, he discovers Lex Luthor is in possession of the corpse of General Zod. How the body was obtained is unknown and for what purpose, but one could assume this may be how Luthor plans to destroy Superman and take over the planet.

The other detail involves the timeframe of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, which we were led to believe takes places months to years after MAN OF STEEL. If this source is to be believed, the opening of the film will be set much sooner.

"[BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE 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."

I put forward my theory that the set photos of Ben Affleck were taking place during the ending of MAN OF STEEL (a theory shared by many online) and this is in line with that. Zack Snyder and company have a lot to do to setup why Batman and Superman are at odds with one another and this seems the most likely route. Again, there is no support for these rumors at this time, but they are very interesting. The Zod's corpse rumor seems a bit out of left field, but I am willing to believe anything at this point.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens on March 25, 2016.

Please no kryptonite. Lamest plot device in comics, get rid of it and never speak of it again. The other stuff sounds like bullshit.

Zod's corpse? Will his head be facing backwards, the way Superman intended?

This news has been confirmed as fake. The guy who spread these rumors claimed he did so to troll the fact that fans will worship any stupid plot this film has. He made up the worst possible plot he could think of, while trying to make it sound legit.

I hope the sequel to this is called "Batman S Superman: so so and so." I really need some closure with that "V."

But I'm confused. Can anyone help me out? First of all, how did Lex get the kryptonite? I guess (read: hope) the film explains it. If that's the last scene, how has Batman been fighting Supes throughout the entire movie? I'm getting the feeling that the ppl who didn't like Supes character in MOS are going to feel the same here, and he'll be so misunderstood. And I really

And I really hope this Lex wants to be a perfect human, and hates superman bc he essentially is a perfect human. I really hope that's the take they are going for (so great in the Lex Luthor MOS comic). I like the Social Network aspect that's been mentioned, but my main gripe with the Lex casting is I want him to have a near perfect body, as that's his MO. But lastly, what's Lex doing with Zod's body? The only thing I can think of is taking his armor (and possibly pimping it out), but that's going to be at the very end? It's really frustrating that this movie is really limited because of all the things it has CHOSEN to accomplish.

I also agree with some of the posters that Bruce could be stealing it to PROTECT Clark. I know it was mentioned, or rumored, that Bats is still a myth, no pics, but I think when (if) Lex learns about him, he would probably give it to him to defeat Supes. From Lex's angle, he'd think Supes is a common enemy and Bats is more equipped to fight him

I've always theorized that the particulates caused by the World Engine in the Indian Ocean will be the pieces of Kryptonite.

I think this may be the beginning of a Tower of Babel type sup plot that continues though multiple films. That would be awesome and really show more people Batmans comic book personality.

Kryptonite was ALREADY introduced

We were given a glimpse of the vulnerability of Superman in the first movie. The atmosphere on Zod's ship created a sustainable and pretty nasty affect on Superman. I don't believe that Kryptonite will be an actual rock or crystal. I think it will be some device that alters the atmosphere or creates a gas that hinders Superman's powers useless. I also believe that this scene will be somewhere in the middle of the movie. Batman breaks into Lexcorp to steal the suit used by Zod that just happened

It is this suit that will allow Batman to go toe to toe with Zod; with help from some outside maguffin that makes Superman weak.

I like the idea of krypton it's having the same effects as kryptonian atmosphere, but...

I still hope it's a rock.

I don't think it will be the atmosphere, since eventually he should be able to adapt to it. Kryptonite is supposed to be deadly to Superman.

Earth's atmosphere had the same on Zod and he adapted to it, and so would have Clark adapted to the environment on his home planet.

Your theory is nice, but not the case.

It will be a crystallized, same as always radio active pieces of his home planet.

Crazy

I just like the idea of Zod's dead corpse lying there, either no music or low hum. Sounds like something that would have existed in Tim Burton's Superman movie. Don't know if its true, but hopefully it's not too late.

This would all be pretty cool if true and Luthor making armor or Kryptonite armor from General Zod's corpse would make sense. I just hope the explanation behind the discovery of Kryptonite is well thought and executed and not just thrown in there for the hell of it.

I do like the idea of Superman and Batman still not being complete friends and allies of one another by the end of this. Should create some good group conflict when it comes to interacting with the other, final members of the

my guess would be that Bruce Wayne is in Metropolis to help with the rebuilding process after the damages made but also holds Superman just as responsible for the destruction of the city as much as Zod. and fears that Superman's presence could lead to further damage. and that wonder woman and aquaman both feel the same way as batman which brings them all to metropolis to see if Superman can be controlled. "You cant control me, and you never will"- Man of Steel

Maybe the two will be at odds because Batman teaches Superman a lesson about collateral damage.

Don't agree

"...Batman breaking into LexCorp. He is there to steal kryptonite which may indicate that Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are not buddies by the end of the film.." If he's stealing it from Luthor he could be trying to protect Clark.

Meh Luthor will end up making Kryptonite from Zods blood or dna, thus we have an endless supply that can be manufactured if you know the secret. Then Batman will wear a complete Kryptonite suit or simply inject it into his blood stream and be immune to Superman.

Sounds legit

Because they always reveal major plot details to extras. I mean, okay, if it DOES turn out this way, then fine, I'll eat crow. But this all sounds highly dubious to me.

where'd the kryptonite come from?

I'm all for this as it seems like something Luthor would do. But hopefully they explain how there's kryptonite because he never had any debris from Krypton crash with him. I assume its something found from the effects of the world engine but its just speculation. If they just say "here's kryptonite", then people will lose it

It would make sense on one level.....

How else would they know Kryptonite affects him other than by studying Kryptonian DNA? There is no logical reason why the radiation of a rock from his home planet would harm him.....it's just something they created in the comics to make him vulnerable.

Yes, because there aren't radioactive elements here on Earth that can harm us. Why would Krypton have any?
