WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS

The marketing department for Batman v. Superman has gone above and beyond to get the word out that Batman will go toe-to-toe with Superman on March 25, 2016. Warner Bros. has spared no expense to solidify their investment, licensing merchandise with companies like Funko and Coca-Cola.  However a hidden gem lies among the plethora of ads: Warner Bros. created a website for LexCorp. When the site was initially launched in October, visitors had the option to sign up for updates regarding LexCorp’s upcoming projects.  Today LexCorp released the following statement:

“Innovation is a human instinct. The desire to make our lives better, easier and safer has driven invention since man discovered fire. In the 21st century, we are innovating automation. An age of machines that will ‘think’ for us, freeing up human brain power to tackle the world’s bigger questions. When machines behave like machines, they can be compromised. But when machines begin to behave more like humans, that complexity and uniqueness can make us more secure. LEX/OS is the world’s first neural network based operating system. We’re teaching it to think like a human, but we need your help. As a Beta Tester, your actions will teach the system how humans solve problems. Each time you participate, the system will get smarter. Ready to get started?”

Every great superhero needs a worthy opponent, especially a practically immortal alien. Superman and the Justice League have faced many formidable villains, but none as cunning as Brainiac. For years, fans have begged to have Brainiac debut on the silver screen. In DC Comics, Brainiac is referred to as having “12th level intellect.” To put that into perspective, Superman’s parents were said to have had 8th level intellect making Brainiac substantially smarter. Snippets like “the system will get smarter” and “we’re teaching it to think like a human” reflect a vague description of Brainiac’s powers. Zack Snyder has not been afraid to twist the roots of important figures from the comics, so is it a Hail Mary Pass to assume Brainiac will be in the DCU soon? Perhaps, but it you would have to be a computerized supervillain to think otherwise.
