The rumors of Doomsday in Batman V Superman just won’t go away. Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood was on Shanlian On Batman podcast, where he reiterated that while Lex Luthor is the main villain in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, he will have a physical force by his side. That physical force will be none other than Doomsday according to “El Mayimbe.” Of course, Doomsday is the monster that killed Superman back in the early 90’s. However, if JoBlo is to be believed Lex Luthor will be doing some of the heavy lifting, unlike Lex Luthor’s of the past. ” This new Lex Luthor deviates from past iterations in that he will be the first ever depicted on screen to actually put on the Warsuit, an armor that Luthor has been seen wearing for decades in the comics. According to JoBlo‘s sources, who have actually seen the Warsuit, the armor looks very comic-accurate, albeit with a slight DCCU touch.” This is fantastic if true. I’ve long waited to see Doomsday and a battle ready Lex Luthor on the big screen!
Meanwhile, Suicide Squad continues filming in Toronto! As a result, we can see Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harleen Quinzel having a bit of a lover’s dispuite. Of course, both of them being absolutely crazy, their dispute involves a gun and violence. The Joker has some stylish wardrobe, and looks a lot like Grant Morrison’s take on the character from Batman R.I.P. While I absolutely hated that storyline, The Joker was the best part. As for Margot Robbie, aka my future wife, she looks phenomenal in the “mild mannered” Harleen Quinzel attire. Man, a beautiful woman in glasses just gets me every time! It’s pretty special to have the first live action onscreen pairing of these two characters occurring in my backyard!
