Batman v Superman: Batman Has A Kryptonite Spear


Batman has loots of tools at his disposal in Batman v Superman

Batman has always been a dude with way more gadgets than anybody could carry in just one utility belt. But he’ll need every single one of them if he’s going to take on Superman in Batman v Superman. We’ve seen his Dark Knight Returns-inspired power armor, but if you think that’s the only trick Batman has up his sleeve in Batman v Superman, you don’t know Batman very well. Director Zack Snyder teases how the Dark Knight prepares to battle the Man of Steel:

"Superman doesn’t have to be as much of a chess player as Batman. Superman has might on his side, but before the fists start flying, we see an armored Batman placing various traps in an abandoned stockyard, then walking along and driving a Kryptonite spear into the ground. “He paces it off. Then when he throws Superman, the spear is right there. So you’re like, wait a minute, did he [plan] every bit? He know every move?"

Batman having a Kryptonite spear would certainly seem to suggest an alliance with Luthor, how else would he even know about it or get his hands on some? It’s no suprise that Batman has an actual plan beyond merely putting on a fancy armored suit for taking on Superman, but plans aren’t a guarantee and often go to hell the minute anything starts happening. We already know that Batman and Superman don’t spend the whole movie fighting, but what kind of shape does a battle like this leave Superman in when Doomsday shows up? We’ll find out when Batman v Superman opens March 25th.
