The other day a few sources from the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” production reached out and whispered in my ear a few interesting tidbits. Now I have no idea if these are truly factual about the upcoming 2016 film or not, but I figured I would throw them out there for those who enjoy scraping the internet floor looking for breadcrumbs.
I do wonder how long it will take before someone notices these goodies are on here. You see, Obnoxious and Anonymous is not a huge site. We do have a strong and loyal readership, but we’re not on the same playing field (viewer wise) as many of the other film blog websites. However, if what I’m about to type is deemed newsworthy, well… I guess there will be a new big boy seat at the table.
I’m glad. There have been a few times where our original stories have been stolen by other outlets (I’m looking at you Yahoo) and we weren’t given any credit. So let these tasty morsels be a reminder to any big, esteemed websites that act like gods on a throne that the little guys have sources too.
Now that I have your attention, let us begin.
1. The movie opens in a flashback to “Man of Steel” showing the effects the ending had on the characters, both old and new: Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Martha Kent, Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne.
2. There is an astronaut named Hank Henshaw. The black hole that was created to send the Kryptonians back into the Phantom Zone creates a mass rift outside the Earth’s atmosphere destroying Hank’s pod. When it closes, the rift reverses and the pod is left whole–but with no Hank.
3. Dick Grayson (aka Nightwing), Tim Drake AND Batman will take on Superman somewhere in the middle of the story. They have been mislead to think that the Man of Steel is their enemy. However, after Superman saves Tim Drake’s life during the battle, Dick Grayson/Nightwing becomes convinced there is something good about him after all.
4. There will be a variation on the Doomsday origin.
When Zod’s Genesis Chamber crashed, there were 12 surviving fetuses. These were then taken by Lexcorp in the panic (cue flashback scenes). Lex has them scanned and notes the genetic difference. He then injects one with with an XO gene causing the baby to mutate and die.
(The XO gene sample is Amazonian–and Wonder Woman is hot on his trail to find out how Lex could have obtained this.)
Lex then extracts a sample from the now dead fetus and injects it into the second fetus and so forth until the 10th fetus not only lives but thrives–creating the abomination known as Doomsday.
The other two fetuses are kept aside (with one becoming Hank Henshaw’s basis for The Cyborg).
Doomsday hates the Kryptonians because his cells seem to remember everything, and his first thoughts are of Jax-Ur experimenting on him by trying grow him without the Codex.
5. There will be a huge battle (storyboarded at 27 minutes) between Doomsday and Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman/Aquaman/Nightwing near the end of the film.
6. Dick Grayson/Nightwing will return in “Justice League” as a member of the team.
7. Near the end of the film when Doomsday bests Superman, Hank Henshaw will assimilate into a cyborg-like organism within one of the two remaining fetuses. (Not to be confused with Victor Stone’s Cyborg character.)
8. Starter villains for the “Justice League” film will be The Cyborg (aka Hank Henshaw), Mongul and Sinestro.
So if this is true, we’re going to have multiple Robins, multiple Cyborgs and all hell breaking loose in this DC cinematic universe. Sounds pretty cool to me and I’m not even an avid comic book reader.
