We might have some major plot spoilers for Batman v Superman on our hands.
A user from Reddit was apparently invited to a test screening of the movie earlier, and is violating their NDA to spoil the movie for us. Should we take these spoilers as truth? Obviously not. There’s no way to confirm the validity of what this Reddit user is saying, so it could all be made up.
But on the off-chance that there is actually some truth in the movie, here is what they said:
“Hey DC_Cinematic, i’m using a throwaway account for obvious reasons, but I saw the movie last night! I use a website for advance screenings and I got tickets for a mystery film and it turned out to be BvS. The movie was very long, as long as TFA if I were to make a comparison. It didn’t drag though; every minute of the film was used effectively.
Performances were all great. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex is way more complex than what the trailers show. By the end of the film, you will HATE him, but at the same time, you can’t help admire how capable this guy is. Ben Affleck as Bruce/Batman is definitely the standout performance. I was surprised/scared how different he became when he put the mask on. This Batman will come across as a villain to some viewers; he enjoys inflicting pain on criminals. There was a scene where he was branding a criminal, and he had the biggest smile on his face. I don’t know how fans will react to that, but I felt it worked with this version of the character.
Everyone else was great too, even the new supporting characters played by Jena Malone and Scoot McNairy. Jena Malone plays a crippled Barbara Gordon. She doesn’t have much screentime, but she does make a Killing Joke reference about an amusement park incident involving her now retired father. Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen who was injured during the events of Man of Steel. He does not blame Superman like the others, but supports him and views him as a hero. He has a popular blog about Superman.
The third act was mindblowing. The Doomsday reveal in the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of action, and I loved every moment of it. The first and second acts are the “Batman v Superman” parts of the movie, while the third act is entirely “Dawn of Justice.” You will see a fully assembled Justice League by the end of the film.
All in all, BvS is the greatest comic book movie since The Dark Knight, and I can’t wait to see it again come March. If anyone has questions, i’ll be glad to answer.”
Personally, I take all of this with a huge number of grains of salt. The entire post is extremely vague and doesn’t reveal very much of anything besides a few minor details, so it sounds like they are just trying to make it all sound more plausible. I could be wrong, though.
The biggest possible takeaway from this would be that Jena Malone is playing Barbara Gordon and Scoot McNairy is playing Jimmy Olson. Their roles still haven’t been confirmed, so this could be the case.
