"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has wrapped up production and is set to be released only in 2016. But speculations about the film's visual effects, plot and the main villain have been doing the rounds. It looks like the film's visual effects artist Sean Ray and the recently launched Lego set has the answers to the speculations.
Ever since "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" was announced, there has been innumerous theories about who the big bad guy might be in the film. Most of the buzz revolved around Genral Zod, Doomsday and Brainiac. But now, it has been revealed by the film's visual effects artist Sean Ray that Doomsday will not be part of "Dawn of justice".
Ray not only confirmed on Instagram that the visual effects for "Batman v Superman" have been completed, but also revealed that Doomsday is not in the film.
"Batman v Superman is wrapped, one the best films i have worked on! My inner child is happy! I'm the biggest superman fan ever! So it was a dream to work on it! Looking forward to seeing it on the big screen in March! I can't wait!! Good job everyone who worked on it," Ray captioned the photo he posted on his account.
But when asked if he created a model for Doomsday (in the comments section), Ray responded, "Hahaha lol unfortunately he's not in the film, maybe in the man of steel squel or justice league film who knows."
Now, we don't know if Ray is telling the truth or is he just trying to avoid leaks pertaining the Warner Bros' film.
Meanwhile, MovieWeb has pointed out that the recently released Lego set reveals a huge "Batman v Superman" spoiler and it directly teases an epic fight between the Dark Knight and Man of Steel. According to the report, these are officially licensed toys that have been released in conjunction with the Warner Bros. and DC Comics movie.
The report further stated that images of the Lego set shows new Batman and Superman mini-figs from "Dawn of Justice" and the new Lego Batmobile. The set apparently gives away clue to "sure-to-be epic" fight between the two superheros. The set gives a peek into the new Batcave along with the new Batsignal.
Interestingly, the images also hints that Batman will use gun that shoots Kryptonite bullets and the report linked this to the rumours that suggested Lex Luthor will give Bruce Wayne pieces of Kryptonite to use in this gigantic brawl.
The four Lego sets which fans can expect from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" include:
Set 1: Microscale version of Batman v Superman Batmobile
Set 2: Includes Batsignal build, Kryptonite, Superman and Armored Batman Minifigures
Set 3: Includes Batmobile, LexCorp Vehicle, two Henchmen and Batman Minifigures
Set 4: Includes Batwing, LexCorp Helicopter, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and Henchmen Minifigures
To know whether there will be Doomsday or not, or if Dark Knight uses kryptonite bullets, we will have to wait for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" to release on 23 March, 2016.
