Diana Prince, Metahuman

One of the big developments in Batman vs Superman, and in the DC TV and Cinematic Universe in general, is getting the word out on metahumans. Basically, it's the DC version of mutants or inhumans or whatever the most PC term is for these superhuman beings that are popping up all over our movie and television screens.

In Batman vs Superman, Lex Luthor is not what you would call the biggest fan of these metahumans. He sees them as either a threat or as a way to deal with his biggest problem, that meddling Superman. Basically, he wants to stay one step ahead of the metahuman game. And one of the main focuses of this metahuman attention is none other than Diana Prince, or Wonder Woman, if you will.

Going Undercover

We know Wonder Woman plays a big part in the events of [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) and pictures from the set of the movie show that her Metropolis alter-ego Diana Prince will be factoring in to the plot as well. She was seen in her street clothes coming out of the Google offices which are standing in for Lex Luthor's LexCorp business.

While some folks jumped on the possibility that she might be working for LexCorp, the better guess is that she's representing Wayne Enterprises, or Wayne Financial as the case may be. Script leaks have put Wonder Woman and Diana Prince as someone who is undercover at Wayne Enterprises and many rumors are painting Lex Luthor as someone who might be in possession of something Wonder Woman wants.

With LexCorp being the one who seems to be in charge of the post Man of Steel clean up, possibly even being the company that the government contracts for this kind of work, Lex Luthor is looking like he might be getting his hands on all sorts of goodies - from Kryptonian goodies, leftover Zod and World Engine bits and who knows what else. Might there be something in his possession that Wonder Woman is after?

This might backfire for Diana Prince, though, as her appearance in Metropolis may be drawing some unwanted attention and setting off some metahuman alerts for Lex Luthor. There's plenty of reason to believe that this is how Diana's cover gets blown and how Wonder Woman will finally get her debut in Batman vs Superman. You can't keep secrets from Lex Luthor.

Uncovering the Plot?

I have a feeling that Wonder Woman's undercover snooping around Wayne Enterprises and LexCorp might reveal to her that more is going on in these places than she was expecting. Something Zod related and Doomsday looking at LexCorp... Is something looking an awful lot like Batman activity happening behind the scenes at Wayne Enterprises? Or maybe that they just both have a really good benefits package for their employees?

Or it could be that Bruce Wayne sees an excellent opportunity to use Diana Prince as a way for him to find out more information on his business competitor and soon to be arch enemy. It's been heavily rumored that Batman gets to work on his Superman-Proof Batsuit by incorporating some of the Kryptonite enhanced gadgetry that Lex Luthor is working on.

However [Wonder Woman](movie:45787) gets introduced in Batman vs Superman, I hope the movie can incorporate her into the plot in a justifiably deserving way. It would be a shame if her character ends up feeling forced into the movie just so they can get Wonder Woman on screen in a big event. Unfortunately superhero movies have a long tradition of cramming too many characters in to one movie. But from everything that's getting leaked out there, it is shaping up to look like Diana Prince has a major role to play.
