Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is less than 3 months away and as is typical, we've already been shown plenty of merchandise for the movie. Good luck to anyone who's trying to avoid spoilers!

The latest round of merchandise has found its way online prior to their official release; many of the action figures are that which you'd expect, such as Batman, who will be played by Ben Affleck.

There's also a Superman action figure; then again, as the protagonist of Batman v Superman it would be slightly irregular if they forgot to include the Kryptonian, played by Henry Cavill.

Naturally we can see Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), who has made an appearance in the trailer alongside Batman and Superman.

And of course, Aquaman (Jason Momoa). He's unlikely to appear in Batman v Superman, however, the King of Atlantis is set to appear in future movies after Dawn of Justice paves the way for the Justice League.

These characters were all to be expected, however, the merchandise reveals an additional figure who has yet to be identified in the trailers... although many have speculated that he might make an appearance.

Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg, has already played a rather significant role in the trailer, making it clear that his role in Batman v Superman will be rather significant. But imagine my surprise at seeing Lex Luthor's Power Armor set up as merchandise!

Alright, this example of "Mega-Armored Lex Luthor" doesn't completely confirm its presence in Batman V Superman, but it's definitely strong support for the argument that Mecca-Luthor will be throwing down against the Batman-Superman combo.

Of course there's also the chance that the Mega-Armored Luthor action figure is simply a money-grabbing venture, but the chances of the armor playing a role in the movie have greatly increased!

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for release March 25th 2016; are you excited to see the Justice League heavy-hitters in action?
