Will Wonder Woman Get a New Origin and a Plus-Sized Cameo in 'Batman Vs. Superman'?

New unsubstantiated rumors also reveal no Martian Manhunter and a second villain behind Lex Luthor, is any of it true? Read on for more possible details.
Batman-On-Film's "Jett" recently answered a slew of fan questions regarding Batman Vs. Superman, which reveal some intriguing but unconfirmed information about how large a role Wonder Woman will play, the character's origin and the inclusion of Lex Luthor and another mystery villain.

It must be noted that we have it on good word from sources close to the production that Warner Bros. and DC Comics are purposely floating false rumors to various online sites to throw the scent off what is actually going on. Some of this information is said to be directly the opposite of what is contained in the script. And some of it is pure speculation from the source itself, it seems.

When asked how large a role Gal Gadot will have as Wonder Woman in the sequel, "Jett" had this to say, while offering hints about Wonder Woman's cinematic origins.

"Personally, I'd say it'll be about on par with Scarlett Johansson's first appearance as Black Widow in Iron Man 2. I believe that it's a cameo-plus type of role that will (hopefully) serve as a springboard to a solo Wonder Woman movie. With all that said, I'd bet a year's pay - in Monopoly money, of course - that the "Amazons" of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those "ancient Kryptonians" who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts throughout spacedom thousands and thousands of years ago. Furthermore, I say that Wonder Woman will be powered-down, if you will, relative to Superman because these Amazons have evolved and adapted to living on Earth for hundreds of centuries. And since Kryptonians are produced without any "He'n and She'n" - Jor El and Lara excluded - couldn't this original Kryptonian on Earth have used this reproductive science to create an all-female race? I say yes!"


He also "confirmed" that Lex Luthor will be a part of the sequel, although that's no surprise since we've been hearing casting rumors regarding the character for the past few months. However, he does talk about a second, unidentified villain.

"Yes. And sorry, I'm not at liberty to reveal the ID of the other villain at this time...but the character is highly rumored to be in the film."


Last month, we reported that Jason Momoa is in talks for an unspecified role, which was rumored to be Martian Manhunter. When asked whether the actor is playing Martian Manhunter or perhaps Aquaman, "Jett" had this to say.

"Nope and nope. Neither of those characters are in this film."


When asked whether or not Batman Vs. Superman is becoming too crowded, "Jett" offered the following response.

"I've learned not to assume a film is "crowded" based on the number of characters included. Was The Dark Knight or The Dark Knight Rises too crowded? I've been told that Batman Vs. Superman - or whatever it ends up being titled - is truly a Superman film. The film's bad guys are Superman villains and Henry Cavill's Man of Steel/Clark Kent is the main character. Of course, Batfleck will play a major role in the movie; but I suspect that one of the main reasons for Batman's inclusion is to establish a new "DCU on Film Batman" and set up future solo Bat-flicks. Same goes for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman - though I think her role is much smaller than BA's Batman."


"Jett" also believes that fans will get their first look at Ben Affleck as Batman "really soon," while claiming that none of Batman's villains will be popping up in the sequel. Again, while none of this is confirmed, you can Click Here! to check out the full story. Production on Batman Vs. Superman is scheduled to begin this spring, with Zack Snyder directing from a script by David S. Goyer.

Batman Vs. Superman comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    Yup, sure do feel the fuzzies about this working out. Multiple villains, multiple heroes, changing origins, and big name actors that have shown they can sink superhero flicks in the past being parts of it. Sure am glad I gave it the benefit of the doubt like all the apologizers screamed for at the Affleck casting and didn't see the train flying off the tracks the more these rumors became reality. Maybe they'll sneak the Wonder Twins in somewhere while they're at it too?

    Now this sounds much better. I like hearing that it is a Superman film first and that the other characters will play some role but wont over shadow Cavill.
