Batman V Superman: Lex Luthor Gets A Warsuit?

It looks as though Lex Luthor may be getting in on the action in ‘Batman V Superman’… as a new rumour suggests he’ll wear his iconic warsuit.

It’s no secret that Lex Luthor will be appearing in the upcoming ‘Batman V Superman’. Expected to be the main villain of the film, we’re used to seeing him pulling strings behind-the-scenes. But this time, it looks as though he’s going to be joining the fight.

And it seems he’ll be packing plenty of firepower…

According to JoBlo, the 31-year-old Superman villain will be getting the iconic power armour that he’s been wearing in the comic books for decades… marking its first appearance on the big screen.

“According to a very trusted and reliable source, not only will Lex be the main villain, but he will also get in on the action… and will do so wearing his trademark green/purple warsuit!”

“That’s right, we will finally be seeing Lex don the armor he’s worn for decades in the comics and various animated series/films. How will it look exactly? Our source says it will be very much like the many variations we’ve seen in the past and will obviously fit the style and look of the film (and DCCU films in general). Lex will don the suit for at least part of the film, but it’s unclear if it’s just in the finale.”

Of course, Lex Luthor’s efforts against Superman are long and well-documented… but how will he obtain this kind of technology on screen? So far, there are plenty of theories. But the most prominent is that he’s been gathering Kryptonian technology around the world.

And he uses it to assemble his very own warsuit.

Unfortunately, that’s all we have for the time being… and with secrecy surrounding the production at an all-time high, it’s unlikely we’ll get a glimpse of that warsuit unless director Zack Snyder wants us to.

Will it be in the movie? For now, we have to wait and see. But I’d love to think so.

‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ heads to cinemas on 23 March 2016.

Do you think Lex will don the infamous warsuit? Will he help Batman combat the Kryptonian threat? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
