With all the big news this past week about Spider-Man, Sony, Marvel and, of course, an apparently deceased member of the Bat-family, some things were bound to slip through the mysterious cracks in the sidewalk we call news.

The most intriguing? Well, that'd have to be the recent report from BadassDigest's Devin Faraci, which seemingly just confirmed that one of the deadliest villains in the DC universe is set to appear in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice: Doomsday himself.

That, though, is only just the start of it...

Sure, Faraci's revelations begin with the fact that...

Doomsday is Set to Appear in Batman vs. Superman

Presumably in a bad mood.
Presumably in a bad mood.

Which is great and all (though I can't help but suspect he's going to have a small, cameo-ing role, similar to Thanos in The Avengers), but there's a whole lot more on its way, including the fact that...

Lex Luthor has a Dastardly Plan

Well, duh...
Well, duh...

As Faraci puts it:

"Lex Luthor has many agents making his dark agenda a reality, an agenda that includes keeping an eye on all metahumans."

Which sounds suitably evil and menacing, if ever-so-slightly similar to the plot everyone's expecting Captain America: Civil War to have. That spying, though, has a particular target...

Which is Where Diana Prince Comes in


Or, rather, as Faraci describes it:

"a woman who walks the streets today but who is seen in pictures from the 1800s. A wonder woman, you might say."

Which is kind of a big deal, since it suggests Wonder Woman has been visiting 'Man's World' for a lot longer than we'd expected...

And, it seems, she might just be being monitored by...

A Classic Bat-Villain

With a terrible Russian accent, presumably.
With a terrible Russian accent, presumably.

Specifically, Anatoli Knyazev, a.k.a. KGBeast, who is reportedly an agent of Luthor's - as opposed to, in the comics, the most predictable agent of the KGB ever.

Though, odds are we're aren't going to be seeing him appear with his original codename - seeing as it stopped being all that relevant with the fall of communism.

What Does it All Mean, Though?

Now, of course, Faraci could be completely off course with all of this - and, until any of it's confirmed by the studio, it obviously has to be categorized as plausible rumor. That being said, all of that put together - if true - could well suggest we'll see a very different Batman vs. Superman movie to the one that the basic premise - Batman fighting Superman - initially suggests.

What do you guys think, though?


Do you think the Batman vs. Superman plot rumors are true?
