Last week, we had some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rumors regarding Lex Luthor’s hairline and attitude.  Today, more Batman v Superman rumors have gone online covering not only Luthor but also more details about Wonder Woman, her costume, weapons, how she’ll be integrated into the story, plus a little bit of  background on this latest big-screen interpretation of Batman.  Leading off with Luthor, JoBlo reports that this is a familiar Lex Luthor: an egomaniac who can’t stand the notion that there’s someone out there more powerful than him.  He then tries to persuade people to dislike Superman, and is moderately successful.  Some people see Superman as a savior, and others see him as “the ultimate threat”.  And if you’re wondering about the hair, JoBlo says Lex Luthor starts out with long, red hair.

Hit the jump for more Batman v Superman rumors including Wonder Woman’s costume, her weapons, how she factors into the plot, and miscellaneous Batman details.  The film stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Laurence FishburneBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens May 6, 2016. [Potential spoilers ahead]

So how does Wonder Woman get into this crowded movie?  Earlier this year, we reported the rumor that Wonder Woman had a “cameo-plus” sized role that was on par with Black Widow in Iron Man 2.  However, the rumor’s source, Batman-on-Film, also said in the same article that Jason Momoa wasn’t playing Aquaman, which we now know to be false.  That’s not to say BOF is necessarily wrong on the size of Wonder Woman’s role, but it’s something to keep in mind.  JoBlo says she she will be introduced as a “Diana” and “will have a fair amount of screen time and will team up with Batman and Superman for the final battle against an un-named villain who may be working or controlled by Lex Luthor.”  Her origins will be left vague, but her presence will show that Superman isn’t the only person with superpowers.

Finally, when it comes to Batman, JoBlo reports that the character is a “veteran crime fighter that will do anything it takes to get the job done” and doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the rule-following Superman.  Additionally, while Wayne Manor is in the movie, Bruce Wayne chooses to spend his days on the property’s modern-looking cottage by a lake.  However, the Batcave is still beneath the grounds and holds the Batmobile, Batwing, etc.

I’m sure you all have plenty of thoughts on these many rumors.  Sound off in the comments section.
