Deep Thoughts: What role does ZOD play in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

After watching the trailer for Batman v. Superman several times I began to wonder why ZOD was featured in a body bag and why Lex Luthor utters the line ‘The Red Capes Are Coming”

imgresNow for anyone who has read any Superman books we know that Bizzaro or subject-B has always played some role tied into Lex Luthor.  Bizarro is the perfect imperfect duplicate of Superman, acting as his antagonist or ally depending on the situation. Originally created to be Superman’s clone by his nemesis Lex Luthor, his poorly constructed genetics caused him to become the opposite.


So who’s to say that in this new telling of Superman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of justice Lex Luthor played by Jesse Eisenberg uses the body of General Zod to create a super-being, which in turn becomes Bizzaro and that he plans on either cloning Zod or re-animating Zod the line that Luthor utters of ‘The red capes are coming” is a telling of what he has planned and not that he thinks more Aliens will come to earth.


No this is of course just speculation and there are several theories that Zod becomes Doomsday, but we will just have to wait and see.
