PlotEdit

  • Kryptonite will be featured in the sequel.
  • CONFIRMED The writers will address why nobody recognises Clark Kent as Superman.
  • CONFIRMED Batman will be a "tired, weary, and seasoned crime fighter".[60]
  • Batman's origins will be featured. [61]
  • The Batmobile will be a Cadillac. [62]
  • Batman's cowl will be based on Batman: Noël and Batsuit will be grey or blue.[63][64][65]They have it the grey and black version of the Bat-suit has white and black plating with black undercloth revealed at the joints.[66]
  • Superman will have to deal with the effects of killing Zod.[67]
  • Batman will not be on speaking terms with Robin/Nightwing.
  • Batman will be a semi-retired recluse using drones to fight crime instead of his body.
  • The batsuit from the brief look the source had at some concept art was dark grey with black cape, cowl and boots. Description by either the writers or artist at the side read: "Kevlar weaved mesh fabric. Glider cape (source believes similar to that which was used in Nolan Trilogy/Arkham games). Advanced lightweight military grade boots. Custom made cowl with intercom system."[68]
  • The Batsuit won't expect any shade of blue or tights for the Batsuit. More armor with Beyond and or Kingdom Come capabilities. [69]
  • DEBUNKED! Wonder Woman will be a Kryptonian descendant.[70]
  • Wonder Woman's outfit will consist of Armor, Not the Lynda Carter itty bitty outfit. [71]Some details on the Wonder Woman costume include it will be similar to 300 and Greek Mythology. The Golden Eagle breast plate is still there as are the bracelets on her wrists as well as the crown with a red torso top, which is more like protective thick leather armor and red knee high boots. There are about 40 different versions designed all with different bottoms. Some of the designs had the classic pants look, trousers, skirts, everything. The one chosen is a sort of dark blue skirt with a belt around the top where a sword and lasso hang from. The source also believes Wonder Woman will have a round gold and black shield and possibly a red cape that sits to the right hand side. [72] Wonder Woman's costume will be from the 600 issue and modern but will have stating loyal from the comics.[73]
  • Some story elements for the film are said to include the fallout from the destruction in Metropolis and public opinion. These are things that people felt were missing from Man of Steel that were left out deliberately to be included in the sequel.[72]
  • The villians are Lex Luthor and Metallo.
  • Batman forms a UN type deal to stop Superman from destroying another city.
  • Aquaman is in it, but not called Aquaman. He’s there because the world engine in the ocean did something to the fish.
  • Wonder Woman poses as a Wayne Enterprises investor to retrieve an item that belongs to her people.
  • Lex Luthor is in the shadows a lot, a manipulator. Not much face time with Superman.
  • Robin betrayed Batman at some point, leading to a falling out between them.
  • The Batcave was super cool looking, and the mobile looked similar to Burton’s
  • Lois is investigating Lex.
  • Metallo “kills” Clark
  • The Daily Planet is bought by Lex Luthor for PR purposes
  • At the end Superman is living in exile, and the Justice League is an government approved superhero team.[74]
  • Lex is the richest man on the planet who became a self made billionaire at 18. Lex is currently the CEO of Lexcorp who is one part tech genius, one part ruthless business man and two parts Metropolis street tough. Yes, street tough.
  • At 14 Lex was living on the streets and for survival was initiated into a street gang. [75]
  • Clark Kent will be devastated after the fall of metropolis and as a result, he will send himself to exile. Lex Luther teams up by another villain character to hunt Superman in their mission to kill him.
  • Metallo apparently possesses kryptonite and as the pair of villains unite, Superman's life is plunged into danger.
  • Batman will be the one to come to the rescue and try to save  Superman.[76]
  • Lexcorp will be a young, edgy company. Think of it as a .com or Google type workplace. It’s a smart company with a stylish vibe, a youthful clash of rock and roll, preppy, and nerdy employees hipsters.[77]
  • The film will be connected with the Gotham TV series.[78]
  • Superman may be in a love triangle with Lois Lane and Wonder Woman. [79]
  • The film is set two years after Man of Steel.[80]
  • Lex Luthor will not only have hair, but it will also be "kind of loose and wavy, and it's dirty blonde." 
  • Speaking of LexCorp, we’ve seen a lot of the outside, but I have some info on the inside as well. I’ve been told it’s “f***ing awesome”. There’s a basketball court in the lobby with a giant 30 foot neon LexCorp industries sign.[81]
  • The reports of Wonder Woman wearing the pre-new52 jacket and leggings outfit are inaccurate. Completely. The description of the outfit from our source uses the term “badass” on multiple occasions. This Wonder Woman is ripped right from the comics and has a “traditional, yet sleeker” costume that’s “battle ready.” She’ll have a blue leather skirt, silver-armored cuffs that reach to her elbows, golden tiara (with a design of some sort in the center, possibly the red star) and a variation of the traditional-looking red top (no word on additional armor on it). Her overall appearance is described as “Amazon warrior princess” and definitely not an urban reimagining. She’s there to kick ass and that’s readily apparent. Word is that WB is getting a VERY positive response on her appearance to those they’ve shown it to.
  • Batman is said to be a veteran crime fighter that will do anything it takes to get the job done. Superman is a rule follower, so they often don't see eye to eye, which is a consistent dynamic with their initial relationship. As for Batman's usual digs; Wayne Manor is there, but Bruce Wayne chooses to live on the property in a modern-looking cottage by a lake (not a van down by the river, though). Underneath the cottage is a modernized Batcave, which houses a Batwing, along with his other gear (Batmobile, batarangs, etc.).
  • Lex Luther (who is rumored to have longish red hair at the beginning of the film) thinks he is god's gift to humanity and the best that humanity has to offer, which leads to his hatred of Superman. Because Superman is basically a “god” it makes Lex feel less than perfect. Lex tries to sway people to dislike and fear Superman - and many people ARE swayed. Some see Superman as a hero, while others see him as the ultimate threat.[82]
  • Kord Industries, a reference of Joe Shuster called Shuster Street in Metropolis, Thanagar and Hob's Bay will be feature.[83]
  • Themyscira has an embassy in Metropolis.[83]
  • Batman has existed for close to thirty years, which would place Wayne in his 50's. In this version Batman is still an urban legend, a creature of the night, and no one has ever taken his picture. But he's had plenty of adventures, and the Batcave includes a memorial centered around a tattered Robin costume." and "He's a quieter operator, not involved in blockbuster battles but in all sorts of badass vigilantism" & "Wonder Woman has also been in operation for some time before the film begins, and her activities have been just as secretive as Batman's."[84]

  • Wonder Woman could have “cameo plus” type role in the film, on par with what Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow did in Iron Man 2. [69]

  • Jordan's role may be either John Stewart/Green Lantern or Victor Stone/Cyborg.[43]
