‘Batman V Superman’ Set Photos Show Destruction For Metropolis

Some new set photos have emerged from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and they show a lot of destruction is coming for the fictional city of Metropolis, where Superman resides. The pics are creating buzz online, days after Snyder surprised fans attending the San Diego Comic Con, when he brought along his main cast.

On Saturday, Hall H at the incredibly popular convention, exploded when Snyder came on stage followed by his three main cast members, Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) — their first joint public appearance — and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman). The trio didn’t say much, as the director prevented his stars from talking to anyone and only pose for pictures.

If that wasn’t enough to get fanboys and girls’ excitement through the roof, new set photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been posted on social media. They show that Metropolis will suffer a lot of destruction at the hands of…Batman?

It’s hard to tell, without the knowledge of the official plot — which Snyder is keeping close to his chest for now — what exactly goes on between our two superheroes, Batman and Superman — who face-off in a movie for the first time in history. We know, from the title, that the duo will be in opposing camps and Snyder has suggested that Superman faces the consequences for his actions in the original, Man of Steel.

The first photos from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set, posted on Twitter by user @Bananadoc, show a badly mangled Metropolis police cruiser and city bus. This could indicate an attack by Batman or any of the villains, who will make Superman’s life miserable.

An indication that this is one of the battles between the two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice main heroes is the following set photo. It shows a Gotham City Oil tanker, which seems to not be faring so well.

Those lucky enough to attend the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic Con panel, saw a teaser trailer of what the face-off between the two heroes will look like, and it was nothing short of amazing.
