The hype for the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie is gaining. A lot of news has come out regarding the caped crusader and the last son of Krypton. Recently, some juicy teases of what appears to be a formidable foe on the horizon, reasons why Snyder is moving deep in to the DC mythos by quickly bringing in Doomsday, and Lois Lane’s “big scene” with the Batman.
First off, in an interview with Amy Adams, according to Comic Book Movie via Empire she revealed how her character starts off the movie. Lois is said to be living with Clark Kent, and it has influenced her as a journalist at The Daily Planet. Last we saw them together, they were introduced for the first time as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, and this is a big jump in their relationship from one movie to the next. Adams explains how Clark has made an impact on her life as she has considered her “faith in humanity restored.” It looks like her character is off to a good start in Batman v. Superman.

Perhaps the moment where Superman had to make a split-second decision to kill General Zod to save a family is an example of such an impact?
“She may have some tunnel vision, but she’s got a job, moral standards. [When] we met her before she would do anything to get the story – now Clark has instilled some faith in humanity in her. Her relationship with Clark is the closest thing she has to anything faith-based, you know? Although moving in with Clark brings issues.”
Clark Kent or Superman, they both seem to share the same value system of morality, either way. Glasses or not.
It was questioned whether or not Adams would be sharing a scene with Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Batman. The actress was a bit cryptic, but added that her character may be “too busy sleuthing, but she definitely brings another dynamic.” It was then confirmed her work with Batman on the set, due to “wirework and special effects work” and mentioned “a big moment” regarding their work experience.
Enter the Batman v. Superman beast of a villain Doomsday. The only creature to been first to kill Superman in the comic book world. Snyder further reinforced this, according to Latino-Review, as the genetically developed beast looks to be taking on the DC Trinity.
“To go up against heroes like Batman and Superman, we wanted to introduce one of the DC Universe’s most iconic and powerful villains. He is essentially an unstoppable force. He poses a real threat to the world within the film.”
The “true villain” in Batman v. Superman is thought to be Lex Luthor, the brains behind the brawn and rumored to be the one who has developed this monster genetically after using General Zod’s DNA in the post-Man of Steel battle. The director speaks of metahumans, a generic term used in the DC Comics world referring to a being with super human powers.
“You learn pretty early on that Lex is interested in metahuman existence, and that there might be some relationship between that investigation and the appearance of Diana Prince.”
Finally, a tease of a foe quite destructive on all levels. If you look up his abilities, one would liken him more to a god. One significant power of this villain is his “Omega Beam.” That said, the ability was teased via Twitter.

This Dawn of Justice movie image appeared in the hard copy of Empire, also therein lies Batman facing a large, desert-like area with the omega symbol that is quite large thus teasing the likelihood of Darkseid. But, this could be an image of things to come as it was mentioned in The Mary Sue to be another segment of Batman’s dream sequence where he was unmasked by Superman and the flying parademons who are of Darkseid’s creation in DC comics.
Of course, one can only speculate as the omega symbol is a generic image that can be used by anyone. But, why go that route? If Marvel can tease its Thanos, why can’t the DC movie universe tease its ultimate baddie reigning terror with his Omega Beams?
The Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie opens in theaters come March 25.
