According to some reports, Superman might be killed off in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed film because the statue that was photographed on set was decorated with flowers suggesting a memorial site.
Superman fans might be disappointed to find out that their favorite hero might meet a deadly fate in the upcoming Dawn of Justice film. Aside from the photos surfacing showing the Superman statue being destroyed, there have been hints that the movie will be inspired by the 1992 comic "The Death of Superman," where he was killed by Doomsday. Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa is rumored to play Doomsday, though there have been no confirmations about the said casting.
MoviePilot.com reported that it could be possible, saying that the death could lead to the introduction of more DC characters.
"How's that for an ending? Superman dies, leading to a huge, Superhero-introducing (and Justice League-creating) funeral - setting up the Justice League movie, and placing the emphasis on the newly introduced DC characters," wrote MoviePilot.com
Latino Review also chimed in on the destroyed statue, saying that it could possibly be a sign that Superman will most likely die in the movie.
"[it looks] as if they're turning the downed statue into a memorial site for Superman." wrote the website.
Batman vs. Superman is set to hit theaters on May 6, 2016, and that's when fans will find out if Superman lives or dies. Either way, it is set to be one of the biggest blockbusters to ever happen.
