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.

  1. The scene isn't comically grim so much as the set, I think.

    I so oooo can't wait for this film. Not since Batman 89' or Returns even the TDK have I been so excited. This gonna be huge. That armored suit, you can almost see the kryptonian influence compared to Zods armor from MoS....

    That's why I have always been a fan of Batman. He is just a regular Joe (who has a boatload of money) that has no super powers just all of those toys. He is a crime fighter,a detective he is basically out there to protect and serve. Do I see him as realistic, kinda because like I said he is this guy who fights crime. He is everything that every good male/female police officer is. DC to me has always been dark and a bit more on the edge then Marvel. That's why Nolan took the approach that he did on his trilogy. And that's why it will stand as one of the best as a whole in comic book movie trilogies.
