Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is not set for release until March 25, 2016, but rumors about the film persist offline and online as fans scrape to get as much news about the film’s plot as possible — especially since this film may help make or break the development of the DC Cinematic Universe and the DC Movie Universe.
In a recent rumor, the fight between Batman and Superman will supposedly start because of interference by Lex Luthor who sends Superman to Batman after the end of Man of Steel. Luthor might also simply say something about Batman that pushes Superman to go to Gotham. The rumor further suggests that a furious Superman immediately attacks Batman by destroying the Batmobile with one hit. Little is known about what Lex Luthor might say to Superman to convince him to harm the Dark Knight, but fans of the DC Comics know that the two men are destined to eventually work together and create The Justice League according to CNN iReport.
Other rumors currently being shared like wildfire around the Internet and offline include one in which Superman, eager to prove himself to the public, attacks Batman because the public considers Batman to be a menace that needs to be stopped by a hero like Superman. Another rumor is that the new version of Batman played by Ben Affleck will be much darker and scarier than previous onscreen incarnations.
