Two months from today, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is hitting theaters! Personally, I can see Batman vs Superman being really awesome, mediocre, or just plain awful. It's the second trailer, or the first official trailer with Doomsday, where Batman and Superman are like "I thought she was with you". It was extremely out of context, was very corny, and overall ruined the film. These past TV spots however, have been getting really awesome but that last trailer is stuck in my head like a bad hip-hop song. After that trailer, I viewed the movie turning out to be like Man of Steel, where some people loved it and some people hated it. This would make it overall mediocre. Now as the film comes closer, I am looking forward to it more and more, along with Suicide Squad.
Anyways, it seems like the premise of Batman and Superman brawling on the big screen is not enough, as the superhero flick will also consist of Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, other Justice League members such as The Flash and Aquaman, General Zod, and even Doomsday! It looks like this movie may suffer one of the main issues superhero movies in the past have suffered, which is the over cramming of characters, especially new ones that they have to introduce. Movies such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, and many other films have crammed characters in and their development of the character was affected majorly which affected the overall product of the film.
Well, it seems like DC and Warner Bros. are just saying f**k it and throwing in even more. New Batman v Superman pictures have emerged in Empire magazine and there is one picture that really catches the eye of DC fans. It is one of Batman looking down at an omega symbol...
Darkseid is Coming to the DCEU
First of all, I don't think DC could spoil the movie anymore. I can totally see this being a post-credit scene. The scene would be Batman talking to the other Justice League members over whatever kind of communication device and Batman would be like "I found something" and we would get a pan of the Omega symbol, hinting at Darkseid himself for the upcoming Justice League movie.
This would have been such a great surprise but it was ruined, among everything else for this movie. I'm just waiting for DC to include the Flash, Aquaman, or Cyborg in one of the trailers at this point.
Darkseid is the equivalent of Thanos in the DC universe and he is, like Thanos, one of the most powerful villains. He will most likely be the villain in the Justice League movies, as it is split up into two parts. This makes sense as Thanos has Avengers: Infinity Wars, which is split into two parts. All in all, I am very excited to hear that we will get to see a live-action version of Darkseid, and no, Smallville does not help.
