The subtitle Dawn of Justice is no coincidence. This film has every intention of setting up a DC Cinematic Universe for Warner Bros. For Zack Snyder, there’s got to be a lot of pressure in delivering something that’s just as epic as say The Avengers. Batman V Superman is something every comic fan has been waiting for, and its a film that should be unlike any other. So far from what we’ve seen (character posters and a teaser trailer), it looks as it won’t disappoint. Its still way too early though.
So little of the film has been revealed at this point, with a little over nine months until its release. Even the official synopsis didn’t tell us much. Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood is claiming the new threat in BvS in none other than Doomsday. That is very much a rumor, but it does fall in place with previous rumors I’ve mentioned regarding LexCorp getting their hands on kyrptonite.
Gonzalez’s latest rumor concerning BvS is in regards to cameos of future Justice League members Aquaman and The Flash.
According to the rumor, there is a scene where Bruce Wayne (Affleck) breaks deep into LexCorp and hacks their survellience systems. There, Wayne sees a blur of The Flash (Ezra Miller) stopping a bank robbery. Soon after, he sees a captured Aquaman (Jason Mamoa) imprisoned in a chamber.
Now as to how exactly Lex Luthor (Eisenberg) captures Aquaman, Gonzalez has received reports that next year’s Suicide Squad actually takes place between Man of Steel and BvS. Given that Lex Luthor is rumored to appear in Suicide Squad, all of this would fall into place making the whole thing feasible.

As always, this must be taken with a grain of salt. However, this would be a clever idea to include appearance of DC’s lesser known characters, who will eventually get their standalone films. Like Marvel, Warner Bros should use Batman V Superman to drop small easter eggs and references that will lead into future films.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice releases in theaters on March 25, 2016.
