Director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t just set up to be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2016 – it’s also really a launching pad for some much bigger franchise plans. In addition to being a follow-up to Man of Steel, the movie is also made to be essentially a prequel for not only a Justice League feature, but also a whole slew of other DC Cinematic Universe projects (including Suicide Squad later this summer).
Because of this, there are many parts in the movie that are almost exclusively included just to set the table for what’s to come over the next few years. But what are these parts specifically? Well, we’re here to address them all in this brand new feature. Read on to get more of a deep comics perspective on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and a preview of what’s to come in the world of superhero movies!

The Flash’s time travel anticsThe Flash is mainly known for his ability to run crazy fast, but it’s other facets of his speedy powers that keep the character ever evolving and his adventures more interesting. One very important ability, for example, is the fact that he can actually use a specially built treadmill to rip a hole in time and basically time travel. We see a very cool example of this in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as he visits Bruce Wayne while he is sleeping in his lab (though admittedly the presentation makes it a touch hard to not only recognize The Flash, but also understand what he says). The Flash tells the sleepy billionaire,
Bruce listen to me now! Lois - it's Lois, Lois Lane, she's the key. Am I too soon? I'm too soon. You were right about him, you've always been right about him. Fear him! Find us Bruce. You have to find us!
I guarantee that won’t be the last time audiences hear that line of dialogue.
