Darkseid teased in new Batman v Superman image?


Lots of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news is going on this week. We have an illustrated Batman v Superman cover by artist Jim Lee for the March issue of Empire. It features the Man of Steel swinging with his left fist as Batman holds on to his batarang. It looks as if Batman is trying to avoid Superman’s punch.

However, a new photo inside Empire reveals a clue about a certain DC supervillain possibly making an appearance.

You see that Omega symbol in the distance? Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips, is a villain that comes to mind when you think of the symbol.

He has a special move called the Omega Beams.

Here you can see the Omega symbol on his hands from Final Crisis.


The image of Batman looking at the Omega symbol came from a recent issue of Empire scanned by Twitter user @GrahamWilko.

There were hints of the coming of Darkseid. In the second trailer, it looked like Parademons, the flying creatures that serve Darkseid, were coming down to reign terror.

The movie is directed by Zack Snyder. It stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
