It occurred to me this morning that many people might not understand why Lex Luthor (portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg) is saying this in the new BvS : DoJ trailer. So I decided to take a moment to explain it to those who didn't understand. It's a reference to the poem "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere." In the poem, Revere is credited with being the only person to warn the early American militia that an attack is starting and shouting "The British are coming! The British are coming!" The British during the Revolutionary War were also called "the Red Coats," due to their uniforms having a red coat with long coattails. Furthermore, there are two moments in the trailer where military personnel are shown in combat/SWAT team style gear. One in which they are fighting Batman, and another shot in which they kneel to Superman. However, upon further inspection, you'll notice these personnel are not displaying GPD (Gotham Police Department), MPD (Metropolis PD) or even a U.S. flag. Rather, their shoulders bare the S of Hope, taken from Superman's costume. These are soldiers who have taken up arms for Superman. It is also worth noting that Superman does not look pleased by this group or comfortable with them when they kneel. When Luthor says "The Red Capes are coming! The Red Capes are coming!" he's referring to either Superman, the militia fighting in his name, or both.
OK folks, going to be maybe a few spoilers in this post but I have a theory that it's not Doomsday that is created by Lex but.....Bizarro.
