“Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder has remained relatively quiet about how supervillains factor into this spring’s DC superhero movie, offering up only a few bits of information about how Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Doomsday factor into the plot. Now, a new rumor reported at Latino Review claims that — potential spoiler alert — the film will include a third menace.
The site claims that in addition to Lex Luthor and Doomsday, Bizarro will play some part in the film. Latino Review doesn’t indicate where its information comes from; the site doesn’t cite unnamed sources or claim to have seen the film themselves. The rumor also doesn’t mention how Bizarro will factor into the film. There’s speculation that he could be a clone created by Luthor following Superman’s bloody battle with Batman, and there’s precedent for this speculation since the latest trailer hints that Luthor created Doomsday. Latino Review does state that they believe Bizarro’s inclusion is part of Snyder’s set up for “Justice League: Part One.”
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and Amy Adams, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens on March 25.
