While Batman V Superman has been filming for a while now, actual plot details have been few and far between. We’ve been hearing just snippets here and there, as the larger plot has been kept pretty well under wraps. Now a new rumor has come out that gives a good idea of what the overall threat is in the movie and who’s responsible for it.
GeekTyrant spoke to an extra who saw many scenes being filmed, and he had this to say:
According to the extra, the ending of the film has already been filmed. 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 also said when the movie takes place:
“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.”
Normally this would be considered a crazy rumor, but Badass Digest backs it up:
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.
If Lex does end up creating Doomsday, it does sort of fit in with the New 52 version of the Lex character as in the recent comics Lex Luthor created Bizarro from Superman’s DNA in an attempt to clone Superman. Creating Doomsday from Zod’s body is a modification of that type of story from the comics.
