Where did we leave him? Wonder Woman watched some footage of him being created/transformed into his current cyber-self in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. It was very explodey!

Lex Luthor

Steppenwolf

Played by: Ciarán Hinds

Who is he? An immortal, superhuman military leader responsible for countless deaths across the galaxy over hundreds of thousand of years. He's quite the handful.

Superman

Played by: Henry Cavill 

Who is he? Superman. Everyone knows who Superman is, right? The last surviving member of the Kryptonian race, possessing incredible abilities (flight, x-ray vision, super-strength and more) powered by Earth's sun. Wears glasses and nobody recognises him. Superman!

Where did we leave him? Oh dear. He.. He died, at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, while killing the baddy Doomsday. And yet... did he? The dirt on top of his coffin moved in a way that suggested he might not have been quiiiiiiiite dead. Maybe Kryptonians get better after a bit?
