Toys! They are responsible for more movie spoilers than any other force on the internet, including Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe. Today, it's another toy that is responsible for revealing a huge Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoiler. It directly concerns the big title bout between these two iconic superheroes. You'll want to slip away quietly now if you don't want to know any more!
One of the biggest questions heading into Batman v Superman is: How can Bruce Wayne beat Kal-El? Well, a new LEGO set has our answer. And guess what? It's not going to be a fair fight. As seen in the photo below, Batman will be using a gun that shoots Kryptonite bullets! Crazy, right? Of course, while this is an officially licensed toy being released in conjunction with the Warner Bros. and DC Comics movie, the LEGO sets have been known to embellish some aspects of the storyline being told. Is that what's happening here? We don't think so.
These images show off the new Batman and Superman mini-figs from Dawn of Justice. We also get to see the new Lego Batmobile. The set is based on the sure-to-be epic fight between these two titans. We also get to see part of the new Batcave in LEGO form, along with the new Batsignal. The LEGO images line-up with previous rumors we've heard, which find Lex Luthor giving Bruce Wayne pieces of Kryptonite to use in this gigantic brawl, which promises to wipe out huge chunks of both Gotham and Metropolis.
2013's Man of Steel was the first Superman movie to not include, mention, or even hint at the idea of Kryptonite. A rumor from this past June suggested that the rifle seen in the first teaser trailer is actually a Kryptonite spear. Now, though, it looks like it might actually be a real gun that shoots Kryptonite. There have also been rumors that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will wear his purple and green battle suit made of Kryptonite in the movie, though, sadly, we don't get that confirmed in Lego form.
Eurobricks has information on four LEGO sets that we can expect to see from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Set #1 contains a micro scale version of the Batmobile, as we see in the photos below. Set #2, also pictured below, includes the Batsignal build, Kryptonite and armored Batman and Superman mini-figs. It is priced at a resonable $14.99. Set #3 will include the Batmobile, a LexCorp Vehicle, two Henchmen and Batman Mini-figures. It is priced at $29.99. And the final set listed, Set #4, includes the Batwing, LexCorp Helicopter, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and Henchmen Minifigures. It's also not so unreasonably priced at $69.99.
Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman vs Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before. Take a look at these new LEGO set photos. What do you think? Do you like the idea of Batman having a Kryptonite gun?
