Huge Batman v Superman Spoilers Leak from Test Screening
If you, like us, thought that the most recent trailer for Batman v Superman gave away the whole damn movie, rest assured there are still many twists and reveals that are not contained in the trailer. Someone who is purporting to be an audience member at a Batman v Superman test screening is breaking their nondisclosure agreement on Reddit, revealing everything you wanted to know about the DCEU film but were afraid to ask.

Huge spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ahead!




Jena Malone is playing Oracle


Jena Malone's mysterious character is confirmed to be Barbara Gordon, who is already confined to a wheelchair and taking on the mantle of Oracle. It's unclear whether the events of The Killing Joke are supposed to have played out before the movie begins, but it seems likely that we'll be seeing that infamous and controversial version of the Joker.

Scoot McNairy is playing Jimmy Olsen


Scoot McNairy has been rumored to play everyone from Steve Trevor to The Flash, and none of those rumors were true, but he's still playing a very familiar face: Jimmy Olsen. According to the poster, Jimmy lost both of his legs in the attack on Metropolis, but instead of condemning Superman for his loss, is still defending him. And in an attempt to make the movie more timely, Jimmy is no longer a reporter for a newspaper, but a blogger who posts about all of Superman's heroic deeds.

Jim Gordon isn't dead


There were many rumors that Jim Gordon is already dead in this cinematic universe, but as it turns out, he's only retired, leaving room for him to appear in future installments.

Robin is dead, but which one?


In keeping with Death in the Family, Jason Todd is dead, with his brutal beating at the hands of the Joker shown in flashbacks (with the Joker's face blurred out). But Dick Grayson is apparently alive and well, so there will still be a Robin in this cinematic universe. He doesn't appear in the film, but the door is left open for him to appear in Suicide Squad.

There are lots of Rogues Gallery Easter eggs


In case there was any doubt that this is really a Batman movie, the film peppers references to Batman villains throughout, including Riddler question marks, a freeze gun in the Batcave, and more. These villains don't show up in this film, of course, but they could easily make appearances in the solo Batman movie.

Wonder Woman plays a prominent role


It seemed from the trailers that Diana Prince might not show up until the end of the movie, but luckily that's not the case. She will be introduced as the ambassador to Themyscira, and an outspoken opponent of a new venture from LexCorp. Gal Godot's performance is getting rave reviews so far, especially her combat scenes, which are said to combine the precision and grace of Batman with the godlike power of Superman.

Lex goes bald


Among the many complaints about Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor (whom I personally love so far), his lack of baldness is chief among them. But that will apparently be rectified by the end of the movie, as Lex keeps a bunch of Kryptonite on hand to combat Superman, and ultimately goes bald from its radioactive properties. 

Batman is a sadist


Batman is not only willing to cause pain to criminals, he enjoys it, shown smiling ear-to-ear as he burns his brand into hapless criminals in Gotham City. Between this and his treatment of women, he will probably be the most villainous and controversial Batman we've seen on screen.

Holly Hunter's US Senator meets an untimely fate


The senate hearing seen in the trailer is apparently bombed, killing Senator Finch, who was working with Lex Luthor to place the blame for the Metropolis attack on Superman.

Batman and Superman fight twice


Considering the title, it would have been a huge letdown if Batman and Superman didn't fight, but apparently there are two separate showdowns between the two superheroes. In the first fight, Superman comes out on top, culminating in the scene in which he rips the door off of the Batmobile. In the second fight, Batman comes out on top, and delivers the infamous victory speech from The Dark Knight Returns. He then throws Superman into a special Kryptonite-lined cell, until Alfred has a crisis of conscience and lets him out.

Doomsday is a mutated Zod


Lex sends Batman after Superman with Kryptonite weapons, but when Batman fails to contain or kill him, Lex sends Doomsday. As we saw in the trailers, he has acquired the body of General Zod and experimented on him to bring him back to life as a mutant monster. As in the comics, he becomes more formidable as the fight with the Trinity wears on, growing larger spikes all over his body.


Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)


Lex has one more trick up his sleeve


It seems that the trailer didn't give away the entire third act, as when Doomsday fails to kill Superman, Lex sends an army of drones, the ones from Man of Steel that can sniff out alien beings.

The entire Justice League will assemble


In response to Lex's drone army, the entire Justice League will come out of hiding, including characters whose casting hasn't even been officially announced yet. In addition to the Trinity, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, Ezra Miller's Flash, and Ray Fisher's Cyborg, Dan Amboyer will appear as Green Lantern, and they will all display their powers and fight in costume.
