New Info On Doomsday In Batman V Superman & Two Covers Released

imageBatman v Superman marketing is moving full speed ahead. With numerous tv spots and billboards around the world the hype can not be contained. Entertainment Weekly is responsible for today’s hype because they released two spectacular new covers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and a few interesting be details about Doomsday in the film.

According to EW, they’ve seen the film and Batman & Superman apparently get played by Luthor, who “manipulates their rage and anxiety”.

The following contains a minor spoiler, so if you don’t want to be spoiled stop reading.

EW states:

“The rage and anxiety of these two characters is manipulated by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), a billionaire sociopath with a God complex of his own who takes joy in bringing the powerful to their knees. Luthor not only [slight spoiler alert] orchestrates a mass murder aimed at turning the two heavy hitters against each other but also uses some Kryptonian relics left behind from the Man of Steel aftermath to cook up a cosmic mutant Frankenstein— Doomsday, partially built from the remains of Michael Shannon’s General Zod.”

It seems like the previous rumors on Doomsday are indeed true and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will prove to be a formidable enemy.

When it comes to Batman and Superman’s feelings towards their battle Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill had this to say:

Affleck on Batman:

“He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman.”

Cavill on Superman:

“Superman’s weakness is that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone, he doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him. This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”

“Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016!

    What color are Bruce Wayne’s eyes? I don’t remember, is it supposed to be dark brown or blue?

    • Brandon

      In comics Dark Brown. Clark has unnaturally blue eyes.

      • In the comics, Bruce has blue eyes. He’s always had blue eyes.

        Hal Jordan is one of the few Caucasian superheros with brown eyes. The other big one? Peter Parker.

        • Brandon

          I stand corrected. I new Clark had blue eyes. But I guess I forgot Bruce does too. Went back and looked up several issues and you are correct sir.

          • Yeah, in the early days, superheros were drawn to be the “tall, dark, and handsome” archetype, almost always with blue eyes.

            If you think through DC comics, almost all of their heroes have blue eyes and dark hair. This changed some in the Silver Age, like with the aforementioned Hal Jordan.

            In Marvel comics, it’s much the same.

        Thanks Brandon.

    • Does it matter?

      • Foreign Geek

        Don’t take it too seriously mikey t. Only real comic book fans should answer this one.

  • WiscoJoe

    Let’s see… a billionaire sociopath with a God complex of his own who takes joy in bringing the powerful to their knees and manipulates people using their fears and anxiety… Where have I seen that before? (Turns on the news. Jaw drops.)

    • Jake Bucsko

      Clearly, you are referring to the evil and ruthless Ben Ghazi.

      • WiscoJoe

        Never forget!
