Throughout his 75 years of existence, Batman has shown time and again that he is prepared for just about every threat there is. He even has precautions in place if ever his allies decide to turn their backs on justice. However, when Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader asks Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel whether he bleeds in the first trailer for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,‘ many had to wonder how the Dark Knight was going to do it. After all, the Kryptonian hero is practically invincible, so what’s a guy in a suit of bat-themed armor going to do against a bona fide god? Well, new rumors have emerged that may answer that question.
Before we continue, the following may be considered a potential SPOILER. Proceed with extreme caution.
Though Bruce Wayne keeps an impressive arsenal of weapons on his utility belt and in his Batcave, it’s not likely that a batarang can make Clark Kent bleed. But according to Heroic Hollywood (which is run by former Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzalez AKA El Mayimbe), we can see the tool that will do the trick in the official trailer itself. During the scene captured in the header image, you can see that Batman is holding some sort of club-like instrument. From this distance, we can’t really make it out, but the report says that the vigilante is holding a Kryptonite laced spear. That’s right, apparently Bats got a hold of the radioactive mineral from Kal-El’s home planet that weakens the mighty caped guardian. How he gets it or how he uses it against Superman is still a mystery, but I have a hunch that Lex Luthor or even Doomsday may have something to do with it.
Naturally, this report should be taken with a grain of salt. For all we know, it could actually be a high-powered rifle loaded with a Kryptonite bullet. Or maybe it’s a baseball bat with a fragment of Kryptonite in it. It might even be sword attachment for Batman’s armor. No matter what the weapon in the picture is, it’s practically certain that Kryptonite will come into play when the DC Cinematic Universe needs to subdue Superman. I mean, there’s really nothing else that can stop him, right? The guy is just too powerful unless his opponent somehow has his one weakness. Chances are if that’s the way to beat him, then Batman will find a way to get his hands on some.
