Did a New Batman v Superman Action Figure Spoil the Movie?
With less than three months left, Warner Bros. have finally started putting merchandise, including clothing, accessories, and yes, even toys, up for sale. But in doing so, have they revealed one of the major threats that Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman will be up against in the upcoming film?

One action figure pack contains toys of Batman, Superman, and Lex Luthor. The thing is, Lex appears in a variation of his exo-suit as seen in the numerous comics and animated renditions of the character. As the toy set is directly tied to Batman v Superman, could this mean that fans will be seeing Lex in the suit come March?

It's possible - after all, Lex is evidently willing to try using any means necessary to take down the Man of Steel. It's plausible that after Lex sees that Batman won't defeat him and that Doomsday fails in his attempts to bring him down that Lex decides that he has to do the deed himself. Though this would definitely be in keeping with the character, it's pure speculation.

However, fans also need to remember that official action figures and other merchandise are not always indicative of what's going to actually appear in the film. After all, Dark Knight fans never saw a golden Batman with a drill canon in Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
