First announced officially at Comic Con, Batman vs Superman has garnered a lot of reaction from fan and spawned rumors galore. Two points that keep circulating is that people involved keep saying "Snyder's interpretation of Batman" and the call for a female lead that seems to match a Wonder Woman description. After thinking about this and looking closely on what we have been told I have developed my theories for both. Please remember these are theories, not facts, and I'm not saying I am for or against them, just a couple possibilities.

Let's start with The Wonder Woman speculation; Is it going to be Wonder Woman cast in the female lead that we've heard of? In my theory no. Let's remember back in Man of Steel and the ship Clark explored in the film. There was one opened pod that was empty, he heard footsteps, Jor-El's hologram explained to him that teams were sent to various planets in these ships. The casting call was for a woman to be a Bruce Wayne love interest who is "tall" and "Possessing physicality" and while these descriptions do match Wonder Woman, I don't see WB putting her in this film, at least not as a lead. My theory based on the description and the scene from MoS is that the female lead they are casting for will be Kara Zor-EL also known as Supergirl. It would add more dynamic to the VS aspect if Kal El was able to find his cousin also was a survivor who began a relationship with Bruce Wayne (Batman).

The second theory is on the "Snyder's take on Batman" statements. At SDCC when the film was announced it was stated that The Dark Knight Returns was an inspiration for the story. As I'm sure we all know in TDKR Superman works for the government while Batman acts outside the government's wishes essentially which is what leads to the climatic fight. In the end of MoS we get the feeling that Superman isn't going to play along with what the government wants. If he is in essence taking the approach that Bruce took in TDKR, my theory is that Snyder's version of Batman has him working WITH the government. Not as an agent, but more how he works with Gordon in the comics. They contact him via Batsignal and he takes care of the problem in his own way. Could this be the main plot point that causes the showdown between Bats and Supes? The government not liking Superman's approach or even seeing him as a potential threat so they send the world's greatest detective in to find out a way to stop him?

Again these are just theories and may be way off, but I felt like sharing them with my CBM friends here for us to discuss and see how any of you felt about them. Sound off below with your thoughts.

Bruce Wayne dating an alien with those trust issues? I dont think so!

Is it so far fetched that maybe Wonder Woman is teased at the end?
trytan - 11/5/2013, 7:49 PM
@Moohika not at all, but I don't see her being the lead that the casting call was looking for, and a female LEAD wouldn't be simply teased. I'm thinking that having WW as a lead and doing her origin justice wouldn't be able to fit in this film and have the introduction of a new batman, the reason he and Supes duke it out, and flesh out any other villains that my be introduced time constraint wise. Just my thoughts tho.

Okay, first, I'm glad they didn't kill Simmons. Second, I don't remember the casting call specifically saying that they were looking for Bruce Wayne's love interest. That was just one of 3 popular theories, the other 2 theories being that it was Wonder Woman or it was Supergirl. While I would like to see Supergirl eventually, I don't see them putting her in this movie, especially based on the description in the casting call. If I remember correctly, they wanted someone in her mid to late 20s or early 30s, and I would think Supergirl would be in her late teens to early 20s, 25 at the absolute oldest. And I don't see them using Wonder Woman for anything more than a cameo. I'm not gonna take a guess at who that casting call was for.

I think they should have Wonder Woman in the film and then tease Supergirl for Part 3. I mean right after this film we're getting a JLA film (hopefully). So what better way to introduce Wonder Woman than fighting alongside Batman against Superman?

Latino Review maded a huge jump saying that because an actress was going to be cast it HAD to be Wonder Woman. Latino Review often make stuff up so what they type is as likely as what we type on this site - it's speculation.

These are both great theories and make a lot of sense.

I really think Kara will be in Batman vs. Superman. She was the star in the movie prequel comic and she was hinted at in the movie. It's still very possible that WE could be in it but my money is on Kara appearing. And perhaps Jaime Alexander is in talks to play Kara.
