There has been a lot of information leaking out recently regarding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yesterday, along with our our first look at a hardened looking Superman, a few more villains were revealed as well. Now thanks to Badass Digest, we have some new details to share with you regarding more heroes being included in the story. If you don't want to know who these additional characters are, then stop reading now.
After the news about the villains broke from El Mayimbe from Latino-Review, Badass Digest had this bit of information to add. Apparently they have seen the same script that El Mayimbe has read, and he lists more characters that could end up in the movie.
"I trust El Mayimbe's network and the other information he has beyond this script, but something about the actual script itself - whether it be the errors or the cascading fan-service (Kord Industries, Jason Todd, a Shuster Street in Metropolis, Kyle Rayner, Carrie Kelley, Thanagar, mentioning Hob's Bay, the President is named Diane Nelson, who just happens to be the president of DC Entertainment) or the fact that tonally it is nothing like Man of Steel (Themyscira has an embassy in Metropolis!) forces me to remain humbly skeptical. If this is the script then Warner Bros has learned some lessons from their last couple of movies, although I worry the sheer weight of fan service in this script could crush the film."
It would be really interesting to see if and how they actually incorporate these characters into the story. It would makes sense to see Jason Todd in the film, as an earlier report indicated that the Joker would be "mentioned when a particularly important event in Batman’s backstory is referenced." A lot of people took that to mean the death of Todd, who was Batman's second Robin and later became Red Hood.
It also seems like it would make sense to see Carrie Kelley in the story as Zack Snyder has talked about his love for Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns repeatedly. It's not impossible to think that it couldn't happen.
Kyle Rayner is definitely an interesting and off the wall choice though. I wouldn't have seen that coming at all. Rayner is the Green Lantern character of the 90's and early 2000s. Maybe they decided to cut out Hal Jordan after Ryan Reynolds' movie flopped. It would be interesting to see if they actually ended up including Rayner in Justice League.
