All of the Clues and Spoilers from the Batman v Superman Soundtrack Titles

Batman v Superman is coming out in less than two months, and as of now you can officially pre-order the soundtrack. The second trailer already pretty much gave away the whole damn movie, but the soundtrack titles have now given us even more insight into how it all goes down.

Closing quote

Mostly, the soundtrack titles serve to confirm that the trailer gave away the climactic scene of the film. The track that references the "Is she with you?" line from the trailer is third to last (before the bonus tracks, which are likely not in any particular order), which means there isn't all that much movie after that line happens. We were hoping that the showdown with Doomsday would be a false climax, but it doesn't look like they'll have time for another one. So our best guess is that the movie is exactly what it looks like: Batman and Superman fight, Batman and Superman band together to fight Doomsday, Wonder Woman shows up in the nick of time to help them win the fight, and then there's just enough time for the rest of the Justice League to make brief cameos (if they haven't already by that point).

The rest of the tracks lay out the order in which several other significant scenes take place. "Beautiful Lie" likely refers to Lex Luthor's line, "Do you know the oldest lie in America, Senator? Devils don't come from the ground beneath us, they come from the sky." There's also a possibility that the trailer spliced those two lines together, and the answer to his question is "That power can be innocent," but either way, he's referring to the awesome and potentially dangerous power of Superman. His line "The Red Capes are coming," which apparently comes earlier in the film than I would expect, is a reference to the famous line from "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" and seems to be Lex trying to sway public opinion, particularly through the Senate hearings, and portray Superman as the beginning of a takeover by metahumans.

The Knightmare dream sequence likely falls around "Day of the Dead" or "Must There Be a Superman?", although that's just a guess, and then "Do You Bleed?", of course, refers to that now-famous line that comes right after one of the big fights between Batman and Superman, which ends with Superman ripping the door off of the Batmobile and Batman rising to meet him. (So that fight likely occurs during "No Rules"?)

"Black and Blue" seems to be a reference to each hero's costume, so they must be making up fairly quickly and uniting during this song to fight Doomsday. Then comes Wonder Woman, followed by the Batman suite as a finale, which you can listen to here.


Batman v Superman comes out on March 25.
