Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.
Warning – potential spoilers…
So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

Ben Affleck’s personal trainer Rehan Jalali has allegedly revealed some details about Affleck’s incarnation of the Dark Knight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As always the sources claiming that Jalali leaked this are vague and this may just be pure speculation. Nevertheless, the report claims the following:
There are two Batsuits (we’ve seen them both before — he has a traditional Batsuit, and an armored Batsuit like in “The Dark Knight Returns”). The armored suit has Kryptonite all over it, and it can shoot missiles. There are two Batmobiles. Affleck has a shirtless scene as Bruce Wayne to show off his new physique. The shirtless scene is beautifully shot and shows Affleck overlooking a destroyed city (probably Metropolis?).
Most of this information we had already gathered from seeing the leaked trailer, stills released by the studio, and other rumours. Kryptonite has yet to be introduced into the series, »

After doubling as Gotham City in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and as Metropolis in last year's Man of Steel, Warner Bros. is using the city of Chicago once again for the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The city will be doubling for Metropolis in these scenes, although it isn't known yet if they plan on shooting any Gotham sequences while they're in town as well. The shooting will then shift to surrounding areas of the Windy City for a week and a half.
It isn't known yet which "surrounding areas" of Chicago will be used in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's »

The movie stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, »
Back in June, we reported that Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the casting still hasn't been confirmed yet, that report reveals most of the world is angry at Superman following the mass destruction caused in Metropolis during last year's Man of Steel. While we may not know for quite some time if Aquaman is actually a part of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice story line, it's clear that rumors of the world turning against Kal-El are true.
Protesters are seen holding signs that read "Super-Death" along with a crude alien illustration, and at one point, the angry mob even set a Superman dummy on fire! One of »
While promoting this weekend's Gone Girl, Ben Affleck appeared on NBC's Today, where he offered a few quotes about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is still shooting in Detroit. When Matt Lauer asked what it was like to put the Batman suit on for the first time, Ben Affleck had this to say, praising the work being done by his writer and director:
He also talked about the negativity that surrounded his casting back in August 2013, although he added that several fans have come up to him expressing their excitement about the actor portraying Batman in Batman v Superman since that time.
"We have these cultural stories that people have attachments to, they care very much about. »
Ben Affleck has a great challenge ahead of him in the next few months as he heads out on the road to promote David Fincher's Gone Girl, in theaters the first week of October. He will be asked to talk about the 2016 release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice without really being able to talk about it. The UK Sunday Times manages to get him to open up a little bit about the character of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego The Dark Knight, with the actor explaining how he deals with Batman's rage issues.
Anger is something Ben Affleck has had an easy time suppressing. Though when it comes, it comes in loud quick bursts. The actor was able to channel this into his performance as Bruce Wayne, an aging vigilante who has a run-in with the universe's strongest alien life form, known to mankind as Superman.

Yesterday, it was widely reported that a Batmobile had gone missing from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set. While no official word came out of Warner Bros. about the incident, it was believe to have been stolen by Detroit locals. That may not actually be the case, according to director Zack Snyder. Continuing his running joke that brings Star Wars: Episode VII characters into the world of Gotham and Metropolis, the filmmaker places all the blame for the purloined vehicle on an Imperial Stormtrooper.
He goes on to include this key piece of evidence:
Case closed. pic.twitter.com/fVyENoksFp

It's not quite clear if the stolen Batmobile was also a joke, leaked so that Zack Snyder could continue sharing his geeky sense of humor with the world, or if it was purely a rumor to begin with that the director took advantage of. This »
While we’re still a ways away from Zack Synder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the Internet has been relentless in its search for new information from the set. And today, fan-run Twitter account HenryCavill.Org has produced a collection of photos that showcase the actor dressed as Superman’s humble alter-ego, Clark Kent.

As expected, the pictures don’t give us too much to go on; that said, we understand that the destruction of Metropolis from Man of Steel will act as a dark cloud for the film’s plot, so it’s possible that Kent is witnessing the public vitriol against The Last Son of Krypton from the ground level. Of course, this is based purely on face value.

Last week, new photos from the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice showcased actor Scoot McNairy wearing green socks that teased the bottom half of his legs will be replaced with CGI elements, leading many fans to believe that he is actually playing Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash. The actor joined the cast back in June, but his exact role remains shrouded in mystery. Screen Rant has a new theory about who Scoot McNairy may be playing, which could tie in to Ray Fisher's character, Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg.
While some theorize that Scoot McNairy may be playing Barry Allen, whose legs are replaced with some sort of mechanical implants, which would alter the character's origin story from the DC comic books, Screen Rant believes the actor is playing either the S.T.A.R. Labs "top mind," The Chief, or Dr. »

With very little in the way of hard news coming out of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice camp, we’ve had to make do with set photos, “scoops” from fake scripts, and outright speculation to tide us over, and now a new rumour has emerged from Geek Tyrant, offering up a few potential plot details from the DC ensemble. Of course, this should be taken with a pinch of salt, although it has been backed up by Badass Digest, for what that is worth.
So, according to an alleged extra on the film, the film begins “as the battle between Superman and General Zod ends or is ending (which would explain all the damaged buildings and vehicles we’ve been seeing in photos) and Batman/Bruce Wayne is attempting to make his way to the Wayne tower in Metropolis” Furthermore, a scene has reportedly been shot which sees »

It’s not much, but what we’ve heard has the potential for huge implications. According to an extra who worked on-set for Snyder’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice for almost two weeks, the ending has already been filmed, but take this and the following with a huge pinch of salt:
One of the scenes shot featured Batman breaking into Lexcorp to steal Kryptonite, and apparently Lexcorp had somehow gotten ahold of General Zod’s body.
He then goes on to talk about the timeframe of the film, and that is actually continues straight from where Man Of Steel left off, if not just before:
As the battle between Superman and General Zod ends or is ending (which would explain all the damaged buildings and vehicles we’ve been seeing in photos) and Batman/Bruce Wayne is attempting to make his way to the Wayne tower in Metropolis. »

While we've heard plenty of rumored story details in regards to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, no solid plot information has been confirmed other than that Bruce Wayne will somehow interact with the alien Kal-El, and at some point Wonder Woman will be brought into the mix. A new unconfirmed report claims that General Zod's (Michael Shannon) body will actually serve as a key plot device used to set up one particular character's motivation.
Stop reading now if you want to avoid Major Spoilers...
According to this mysterious extra, who was on set for a total of ten days, the movie's ending has already been shot. One of the important scenes in this climax finds Batman (Ben Affleck) sneaking into LexCorp to steal some Kryptonite. »
