Batman V Superman Deleted Scene Seems to Hint at The New Gods

Warning: Spoilers ahead for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

A new deleted scene from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has just been released to the official Warner Bros. YouTube account -- and it appears to give some insight into that last scene between Lex Luthor and Batman.

In the scene, Lex is taking his Kryptonian history lesson on board the crashed Scout Ship from Man of Steel when a group of soldiers set upon him. If you've seen the movie, you know that those soldiers are never heard from again, but Lex is...!

What's more interesting, though, is a demonic figure -- possibly Darkseid's minion Steppenwolf? -- surrounded by large squares that appear to resemble the Mother Box from Silas Stone's S.T.A.R. Labs video.

Could this be where Lex Luthor learns about the Fourth World, the New Gods, and the idea that Darkseid is on his way to Earth?

  1. I think this is actually supposed to be set during/after the final battle. The issue of the Daily Planet that Perry flips through towards the end of the film boasts a headline 'SWAT Team Storms Kryptonian Scout Ship' so this is probably when Lex is apprehended.

    When you go on Google Earth and search for Bruce Wayne's residence not only are you directed to a tour of Wayne's house, but it's location is "Orion Charter Township, MI 48360". Wasn't sure if that was supposed to be a little Orion/New Gods Easter Egg or not?

  2. "NEver heard from again"? If this is after the creation of Darkseid then these would be the soldiers / police that capture lex. That seems the most logical explanation.

  3. If you think about the last sentence Lex says in the move... He even talks about the new gods :O
