|Lex Luthor, seen here in the "Young Justice" animated|
series, will be in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
Hudson, in part 2, says he believes "Dawn of Justice" and actor Henry Cavill will deliver "a Superman who is closer to the Superman that we all know and love" and will reveal the future members of the Justice League through various cameos.

Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne that
fans have seen.
(In Feburary 2014, shortly after Warner Bros. announced Jesse Eisenberg would play Luthor, yours truly wrote a CCC op-ed which addressed the challenges the star of "The Social Network" and "Zombieland" has in portraying the big, nasty, manipulative baddie.)
Without further ado, enjoy — and share your thoughts in the comments section below! …
I expect the "Dawn of Justice" film to deal with the aftermath of the Kryptonian invasion and the destruction of Metropolis. Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor will be key figures in the rebuilding of the city and there were easter eggs of Wayne Enterprises and Luther Corp in "Man of Steel."

Wonder Woman in the movies.
I expect both characters to have an antagonistic relationship with the Last Son of Krypton. Superman's relationship with the Dark Knight will end with respect between both parties, with the seeds planted for a friendship. Lex Luthor will reveal himself to be the Man of Steel's true nemesis. I expect one or both of them to use their intellects to discover Kryptonite.
Finally, this movie is going to serve as a prequel to the upcoming "Justice League" movie. I have a feeling we will meet all of the members of the Justice League in cameo roles. "Dawn of Justice" will serve as the introduction to the new Batman and for the first time on the silver screen, Wonder Woman.
I have often felt Warner Bros. attempts to make their movies works of art with Shakespearean drama.
My biggest worry is that "Dawn of Justice" will take itself too seriously and be too dark for a film that is appropriate for all ages. I know that it will make over $300 million at the box office, but I have some reservations.
