I quite enjoyed [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870)! Don't believe everything you hear or heard from Rotten Tomatoes! Those fruits can turn into vegetables for all I care... if you know what I mean...
Anyway, I just want to talk about a particular scene from BVS that will be the catalyst for how the DC Universe will plan out. So... Spoiler Alert!
Remember this quote in the movie?
"Bruce! Listen to me now! It's Lois! Lois Lane! She's the key! Am I too soon?! I'm too soon! You were right about him! You've always been right about him! Fear him! Find us Bruce! You have to find us!"
This my friends, is from the words of The Flash himself! But let's dissect it a bit, shall we?
Some people believe that this whole scene was just Bruce's dream. Me personally, I don't think it's a dream sequence. In fact I'm pretty sure that The Flash went back in time to warn Batman about Lois' death, after all she is the "key". I'm convinced that the Desert Bat Scene is really taking place in their future. Meaning that Batman is getting visions of the future rather than nightmares.
If we go to a different scene in the movie, where Superman unmasks Batman.
Superman says, "She was my world!" Why would he say that? I think that means that Superman is convinced that Batman is to blame for Lois' death. To go even further, I think that Darkseid does something to make Superman think that Batman was the cause of it all. I mean why else do we see Darkseid's minions the Parademons in that epic scene? The Parademons are even helping the Superman followers!
Going back to The Flashes quote when he says:
"You were right about him! You've always been right about him! Fear him!"
Who was the Flash talking about? Could it be Darkseid? No. The person he's talking about it is too familiar, it has to be somebody close. My money is on Superman. And I'll explain three reasons as to why.
1- If you notice very closely in the scene where Lex Luthor is creating Doomsday. I wish I had a picture for this, but there is a creature with tentacles swimming in the small mucky pool in the crashed Kryptonian Space Craft. I'm betting this is Snyder's version of Starro.
If you remember back, Starro was a villain who used Superman as a type of vehicle for himself to become powerful. Starro even tried to get the whole Justice League to join him in his evil purposes.
I mean in the TV Show with Starro, Batman even knew that there was something a little off with Superman. Which would make sense as to why The Flash said, "You were right about him!"
In that Desert Bat Scene, Superman wasn't acting himself. I mean he pretty much vaporized the guys around Batman and forced his fist into Batman's chest! He wasn't being merciful at all!
2- That Superman in the apocalyptic desert is either a perfect clone that Luthor had stashed away, so that the Superman clone could get him out of prison in the next movie to wreak havoc again.
3- Or... the future Superman is Bizarro Superman. An attempted clone from Luthor, but he failed... yet again!
So going back to The Flash's quote, we can be safe to say that either one of these versions of Superman would be something to fear!
Since we do know that The Flash can go back in time. There is one major event that The Flash would go back in time for, and that is to stop the death of his mother. In the movie Flashpoint Paradox, we see that his actions made a ripple effect that changed even Batman's future! In that future, Bruce Wayne is the one who gets shot and his father, Thomas Wayne, becomes Batman while Martha Wayne becomes The Joker.
Knowing that the actors, who play Bruce's parents, are well known in their career, we could safely assume that we will see them again in either flashbacks or in alternate futures that The Flash created out of his self gain in bringing his mother back from the dead.
I honestly think it would be cool to see Jeffrey Dean Morgan play Thomas Wayne's Batman! I mean he did great as The Comedian in Watchman! It also would be interesting to see Lauren Cohan as The Joker!
Side note: In the beginning of the movie we clearly see the face of Joe Chill, the man who killed Bruce's parents.
This is actually the first time we get to see his face. Normally this character's face is hidden in the shadows, because through the years Batman is trying to find his parent's killer. Could seeing Joe Chill's face mean that we will be seeing more of him in the future?
This is just part of what I think will happen in the DC Universe, and if I'm right, then you heard it here first!
What do you think? Does this theory make you bat an eye or lose your mind?
