Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice moved from a highly guarded studio in Detroit to downtown on Monday, for what has been reported as a car chase scene. Several local news outlets have footage of the production, and in those clips we have what looks like one of Wayne Enterprises buildings showing major damage…from Superman?
Not much is known about the plot, save for the fact that Batman faces-off against Superman — other than that, we are speculating. However, in images published on Monday and shared at The Inquisitr, we clearly see a sign that reads “Wayne Financial” all mangled up, after what we can assume is some sort of confrontation with somebody.
The fact that Snyder’s film is titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also leads us to believe that our two superheroes will kick their respective butts in the film, at least at some point. Perhaps in the end, they become friends in the run up to the Justice League movie that has been announced, which will follow the Man of Steel sequel.
But we didn’t only see destruction for Wayne Industries in the new footage. Last week, set photos also revealed badly damaged police and first responders cars in Metropolis, where Superman lives and works at The Daily Planet. This could indicate these scenes are part of one or more major battles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Unfortunately we don’t have anymore to go on, as DC Entertainment and Snyder have not been so kind as to share details of the plot and moreover, the trailer seen at San Diego Comic Con, will not be released to the public. Even though the destruction in the new images is obvious, we can’t conclude that they come from a battle between Batman portrayed by Ben Affleck and Superman played by Henry Cavill, but we can’t discount it either.
Snyder stated in early July that the change to a “v” instead of a “vs” in the title was purposely done, so as to not confuse the essence of the movie.
“Suffice it to say there is a ‘v’ in between their names to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”
The director may be suggesting, without giving anything away yet, that the relationship between Batman and Superman is of the confrontational kind, for a time at least. Maybe they start as enemies, but soon realize they have to fight the bad guys and band together in the last moments of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
