Some new images of the upcoming DC Comics mega-movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, have been released via Empire today.

They don’t really show us anything too spectacular that we haven’t already seen. We’ve got Superman using his heat vision, Batman in his metal Superman-proofed suit, Doomsday grinning about the battle he gets to fight and Superman flying.

But then we’ve got this picture of Batman standing over a field and staring at a gigantic Omega symbol.

What is significant about that? It’s the symbol of Darkseid! Darkseid, for those of you who don’t know, is more of less the DC Comics version of Thanos in the Marvel universe. He is one of the New Gods, created by Jack Kirby and rules over the dystopian planet of Apokolips.

All in all, he’s a cosmic being you really do NOT want to deal with and now it looks like he might be coming for Earth. Could this already be setting up for Justice League? Is the WB spoiling their own movie?
