It has been hinted before. That nightmarish scene that perplexed a lot of people and had Batman in desert gear, had creatures that looked eeriely similar to the Parademons (basically foot soldiers with wings) of Apokolips, the hellish homeworld of dark ruler Darkseid. But now a new image has emerged that further teases the landing of the guy that inspired the greatest Superman stories and even Marvel’s Thanos.
The above image appeared in the latest issue of Empire Magazine which shows Batman / Bruce Wayne looking out over a desolate cityscape, taken from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice film. And if you look to the ground you’ll see the Omega symbol Ω carved out. The Omega symbol is of course the symbol of the darklord Darkseid.
And Darkseid’s presence will certainly spell the end for mankind. But how are these simulacrum coming to Batman? The event actually happens? Or just a nightmare. And if it’s just a nightmare, it seems too well-informed to be from just Batman’s own imagination. He’s not that good a detective.
Can you dig it?!
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice synopsis reads:
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theatres March 25th 2016
“So do you think this is evidence of Darkseid being a major player in the DCU to come?! Will we get a hint of his presence in Batman V Superman? And if so, would that be too early, seeing we have JL One and Two to go? Would we need to see The New Gods to set up the universe?
