Batman v Superman has wrapped filming in Detroit, and a teaser trailer is rumored to be on its way, set to drop along with The Hobbit 3, which hits cinemas in the Christmas period, and, for all the leaks we have had, there are still some questions about the plot of this movie which remain.

One of these, possibly the biggest, seeing as it relates to the future Justice League and Wonder Woman movies which are set to follow Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice, is: who will be the big bad, the villain strong enought to get Batman and Superman to settle their differences and join with Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and co to form the Justice League?


The most consistent rumors about the villain for the Justice League puts his creation in S.T.A.R. Labs, the laboratory where [Cyborg](movie:1043082) has his origins, too.

Apparently, the Lab is bought out by Lex Luthor, who has also got his hands to the remains of the World Engine and the corpse of General Zod. With these, the head of LexCorp has not only been manufacturing Kryptonite, but has also been experimenting on the body of Zod, creating something uniquely powerful and monstrous.

Most Batman v Superman villain speculation centres on three or four potential candidates: Metallo, Doomsday, Brainiac, and Darkseid. But which of these villains do you think it will be?

At first, the most obvious candidate seemed to be Doomsday. Unlike the others, Doomsday has his origins on Krypton, like Superman and General Zod. GIven that Lex Luthor is experimenting on Zod's corpse, he would seem to be the most obvious candidate.

New set photos, however, might change that.

Earlier this month, Batman v Superman was set to film in Africa, but, due to the ongoing Ebola Crisis, they had to change plans, and movie to New Mexico.

That is when this was spotted being built in the desert.

That's right, some of Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice will take place in [Wonder Woman](movie:45787)'s home of Themyscira, an idyllic world where the Amazons live in harmony, away from human affairs.

There is one time, however, when Themyscira was invaded, and many of the Amazon woman were massacred. And the villain who did that was?

Darkseid had become jealous at the power of the Greek Gods (who are assumed to be part of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman mythology, though we do not yet know for sure) and decided to invade in order to prove his power.

So what do you think? Could Darkseid be coming to invade Wonder Woman's home of Themyscira in [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870)? Will he be the villain that united the Justice League?
