Every day, more details seem to emerge from Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In recent weeks, we have got our first glimpse of the Batmobile, seen protesters angry with Superman, and that is following from previous costume reveals and constant plot leaks. But that doesn't mean there aren't still outstanding questions about Batman vs Superman.

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

One of the biggest question hanging over Batman vs Superman lies in its subtitle, Dawn of Justice. This movie is supposed to set up the [Justice League](movie:401267), but so far, aside from Wonder Woman, we've not seen any character that is not mentioned in the movie's title.

So who is expected? Well, Cyborg, first of all, but it would not be much of a surprise to see any of Aquaman, Green Lantern and The Flash, as well.

How many Justice League members do you think Batman vs Superman will feature?

How much of The Dark Knight Returns?

When Batman vs Superman was first announced, it was with a speech from Frank Miller's iconic graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns, which sees Batman and Superman come up against each other.

The speech comes from Batman and Superman's final showdown, when Batman has his hand around the neck of the [Man of Steel](movie:15593):

I want you to remember, Clark... in all the years to come... in your most private moments... I want you to remember my hand... at your throat... I want you to remember...
The one man who beat you...

In order to win that fight, Batman build himself a new, heavily armored Batsuit - and we have seen leaked footage that this will appear in Dawn of Justice. So how much else will be borrowed from The Dark Knight Returns?

Will we see the Mutants? Will Alfred feature? What about Green [Arrow](series:720988)? Will the climatic fight take place in Crime Alley, where Batman's parents were slain? Just how much Zack Snyder decides to borrow is certainly something to keep an eye on.

How many Batsuits?

The initial Batsuit revealed by Zack Snyder used a filter on the image, but it is expected to the classic grey-black suit, with a yellow utility belt, that Batman fans know well. The question is - how many other suits will we see? We know about the armored batsuit, but some fans have speculated that this movie (given that it sees an aged, near-retired Batman) could lead to a Batman Beyond-based sequel.

Do you think we could see the Batman Beyond Batsuit towards the end of the movie? What other Batsuits would you want to see in Batman vs Superman?

Darkseid, Doomsday, Metallo?

The final outstanding question of Batman vs Superman we will look at here is: who is the central villain, a threat expected to be powerful enough to warrant the emergence of so many heroes and the formation of the Justice League.

According to rumors, Lex Luthor has got hold of the corpse of Zod, along with the remnants of the World Engine, and is creating some sort of creature in LexCorp's newly acquired S.T.A.R. Labs.

So what is the creature? Darkseid, Doomsday, Metallo?

All in all, despite all the leaks, there are still many questions around the plot of Batman vs Superman. So which of these questions would you mots want the answer to?
