Default If there was a character twist, where would you expect it to be?

Like Shannon starts out as Zod and is revealed to be someone else (Brainiac) or Meloni is a General and revealed to be Lex. Any kind of twists where it seems they are one character and turn out to be another.

What do you see as in the realm of possibility and for which characters?

Or do you think everything is how they are currently revealing it to be?

I really think Meloni is or will turn out to be Lex (yet he could be Zod). Leaning towards Lex tho just seems to me more of a Lex I even told my girl that when the casted him!

I see Meloni turning out to be Lex...he seemed to cryptic about his role

I think everyone is who we have been told they are, and will stay that way throughout the film...

Call me boring, but...

I find it amusing that Meloni himself told us he was cast as a General. We were told is was a MAJOR role.
Now suddenly, he is just a Colonel Hardy.
I could understand Lex Luthor having a major role but a Colonel Hardy?

My twist concerns Jor El.
Jor El is a warrior scientist on Krypton.
He leads an army of Kryptonians in battle vs. Zod and his army.
(remember Zack 300 Snyder is directing)
Jor El wears an armor version of the Superman suit in battle.
When Kal El is sent to earth, the cape worn by Jor El is sent with him to earth.

(note, in the new continuity in the comics, the indestructible cape is Kal El's only kryptonian possession, and the rest of the costume is created from earth materials and can tear.)

The Action Comics suit (jeans and shirt) is the one that can be destroyed, besides the cape. The Superman title suit is the Kryptonian armor.

Henri Ducard turned out to be Ra's Al Ghul

Anyone with a brain cell can figure out out Miranda Tate is Talia Al Ghul

And I'm wagering Colonel Oliver Hardy will turn out be Lex Luthor

Why would Lex pretend to be a Colonel though?

That's tough...Could be that Hardy is an adopted name?

Lex Luthor is the identity of a criminal running Intergang, and Hardy is actually him?......

But it's possible if you think about it. Logical even. Clark is never around when Superman is and vice versa.

"Yes, yes I am, Superman."

I guess I could see Lex having the means to become a Colonel under a false identity. Just can't think of a reason why he would.

I've never seen Superman and Tracy Morgan in the same place either. Hmmm.

But seriously, I'd love it if at the end Meloni ends up being Brainiac.

Do we know Colonel Hardy's first name? Could be Alexander
