Kevin Smith Says Lex Luthor Will Use Metropolis Destruction Against Superman In Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Man of Steel destruction

One of the biggest sources of information about Warner Bros. upcoming plans for its DC Comics properties has been fanboy Kevin Smith. After Smith hosted an online video chat around the Man of Steel Blu-Ray release, director Zack Snyder gave Smith an early peak at a photo of Ben Affleck dressed as Batman, which Smith loosely described in one of his podcasts.

Beyond just Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Smith also revealed plans for how Warner Bros. plans to build out a massive Justice League storyline, which seems to be supported by a recent report on Warner Bros. upcoming DC Comics movie plans.

In his latest Fat Man of Batman podcast, Smith has dropped another little tidbit about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. After discussing with podcast guest Neal Adams the massive death and destruction that occurred during Superman's fight with Zod in Man of Steel, Smith revealed how all that destruction will come into play in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"I guess it's all integral to their next plot," said Smith. "Like the word is Lex is very like, 'We can't trust this Superman, because look what he did to our city.'"

While Smith could be speculating, given his past history of being in the know in regards to DC Comics movies, he might very well have more inside knowledge than the average person in order to make this plot assertion.


Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 6, 2016.
