(Note, potential SPOILERS for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice below - so proceed with caution...)

When it comes to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's begun to seem lately as though we're going to end up knowing more-or-less every last detail of the movie before it comes close to being released - after all, it's still well over a year away from our screens.

The latest rumor to emerge from the set, though, comes with the added, awesome bonus of complete uncertainty.

As an extra, quoted by Superman Homepage, puts it:

"The...scene I was involved in was situated in a half-stadium style set surrounded by tall green screen walls. Henry Cavill was on set dressed as Clark Kent, but did not film with us that day...This scene was a parade scene to take place in 'Washington D.C.', obviously the CG effects for the surroundings would be placed in post production."

And now, for the SPOILER-y part...

"The parade, we were told, was the funeral for the President of the United States."

Which, if true, suggests a whole lot of potential storylines for the movie (and for the future of the DC Cinematic Universe), including the possibility of us seeing a certain Lex Luthor running for president.

It could also, though, be a red herring on the part of the studio - one designed to throw us all off the scent of an entirely different funeral.

One of the scale described, though, could likely only be for one or two significant characters...

Could we, then, be set to see the death of a major DC character? Even, perhaps, someone as central as Superman?

It seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened.

The big question, then:


Whose funeral do y'all think that is?
