Thats what it seems like to me. Ed Boon said that there would be a reason Superman & Batman are fighting one another. Also on the select screen it shows Superman & Batman on opposing sides. This could easily just be a design choice, but I'm thinking its going along with that Civil War plot.
their not who said they were? has that been put out already. besides that's vandel savages voice. It might be like MK vs Dc were you fight as the two but they never fight each other. Or if this infact vandal savage and not lex luthor then it's simple mind control. savage has done that before as-well.
I don't ever remember Ed Boon saying that Batman and Superman were against each other.
As some have said, I just remember Ed Boon saying that there was an explanation as to HOW it was possible for Batman to be able to fight Superman.
Maybe Batman's suit is partially made out of Kryptonite. :laugh:
Well, in one interview with Hector from.. EVO I think, the interviewer asked about why was Batman carrying kryptonite on a couple of banners and wallpapers. He said "Well, I can say it's not to give Superman a gift, it's for.. something else"
However, that might be only for badassery purposes
EDIT: Here's the link :
However, this does not mean it has to be a Civil War storyline, it can easily be something like: Most heroes go rogue, trying to rebel against "the new Regime" but Batman stays who he is, ready to neutralisa any threat to humanity including Superman and the JLA. We don't know yet.
