Batman V. Superman: Various Scenes Described

  • -

Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con issue is chock-full of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice goodies, like descriptions of various scenes. They're fairly vague, yet enticing, details of three scenes.

EW describes a scene that takes place in Wayne manor with Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as "almost comically grim." The Manor itself is reported to be a "derelict husk" with "strewn leaves across the floor."

Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his loyal butler, Alred (Jeremy Irons), are gravely intoning their lines into a burned-out fireplace, as Bruce prepares for his Valley of Elah moment with Superman. The billionaire vigilante appears weary but determined, not unlike the actor portraying him. - Entertainment Weekly

Then a taste of the showdown between Batman and Superman (Henry Cavill).

In his editing suite in Pasadena last month, Snyder showed off early passes of the money sequence, a rainy rooftop battle between the two capes. There's an undeniable thrill to watching these pop culture icons go at it--throwing each other through walls and skylights - EW 

Scene three: Bruce and Alfred have a philosophical discussion in the Batcave.

 Snyder also reveals a scene in the Batcave where Bruce Wayne outlines his motivations to a skeptical Alfred, a bit of realpolitik reasoning that weighs the morality of a preemptive strike on Superman against even the minimal chance of humanity's destruction.  - EW

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
