According to Flickering Myth on Thursday, director of photography Larry Fong created a stir that derived from an Instagram photo which caused speculation or rumor that the Joker character could be in Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman". If this is true, and the card indicated in the picture is indeed the Joker's, fans will enjoy seeing an additional villain on the screen next to Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

One could wonder that the inference or interpretation of the picture may be just a build to the new "Justice League" film also to be directed by Snyder. Heath Ledger played his iconic role in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" and gave a spectacular performance, so he would be a tough act to follow if someone were to fill Ledger's "clown shoes".

There has been a buzz of other content online such as Snyder teasing Ben Affleck in a grizzled, dark, black-and-white photograph next to the Batmobile. Today, another graphic was posted online of the front-side of the vehicle, obviously still under construction. Even hilarious internet memes popped up showing Affleck's Batman in various depressing environments and situations.

The film will star a trio of celebrities with the likes of Affleck, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and the return of Henry Cavil as the Man of Steel. Snyder mentioned he had already seen the costumes having been worn by stand-ins and was deeply impressed. Even Diane Lane, who plays Martha Kent, got a feel for the Kryptonian's outfit.

Also, Fox's "Gotham", directed by Bruno Heller, is expected to debut this fall with "Southland's" Ben McKenzie as the young Detective James Gordon. Heller claims that his TV series will outdo the previous Nolan "Batman" trilogy as far as special effects and visuals. This show will indeed wet bat fans' appetites and even delve into the history of each villain prior to Bruce Wayne ever having encountered them.

Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" is scheduled to debut on May 6, 2016.
