With an extra year to wait until the release of Batman vs. Superman, you can go ahead and bet that’ll give us 12 more months of wild rumors and innuendo. Well, the alleged plot points are dropping like manna from heaven.

The rumor and scoop-meisters  at Latino Review are reporting 11 juicy new tidbits about Batman vs. Superman, which could reflect existing plot points or new additions that are being factored in during the release delay.

They range from believable to far-fetched, but hey, it’s fun to guess. The highlights [POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOLLOW IF ANY OF THIS IS TRUE]: Metallo is a major villain along with Lex Luthor, and Robin is a part of Batman’s history. This report also makes it sound like the Justice League will play a major role, while it also claims to know how Wonder Woman and the (rumored) Aquaman are introduced.

Here are the 11 tidbits:

  • The main villains are Lex Luthor and new-addition Metallo.
  • Batman forms a United Nations-type organization to stop Superman from destroying another city, after Metropolis was flattened in Man of Steel.
  • Aquaman is in it, but he is not called Aquaman. He’s introduced because the world engine from Man of Steel caused problems for fish and other creatures in the ocean.
  • Wonder Woman poses as a Wayne Enterprises investor to retrieve an item that belongs to her people.
  • Lex Luthor spends most of the film in the shadows, serving as a manipulator. He does not get much face time with Superman.
  • Robin does feature into Batman’s history, and apparently betrayed Batman at some point, leading to a falling out between them.
  • The Batcave is “super cool looking,” and the Batmobile has a similar look to the design Tim Burton used in his Batman films.
  • Part of the plot revolves around Lois Lane investigating Lex Luthor.
  • Metallo “kills” Clark. No more details on what that, exactly, means.
  • The Daily Planet is purchased by Lex Luthor, who plans to use it to further his goals in the PR arena.
  • The film ends with Superman living in exile, and the Justice League established as a government-approved superhero team.

Do you think any of these are true? Do you hope any of these are (or aren’t) in the works?
