Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is busy shooting in Detroit, where the city serves as a stand-in for Metropolis. New images from a local news station leaked out Saturday revealing more destruction and the redesigned Wayne Enterprises logo.
The first set images showing the destruction of Metropolis leaked out Wednesday with crushed police cars and a bus. These new Batman v Superman images from WXYZ Detroit (via Comic Book Movie) show even more thanks to a hovering helicopter and a crew with a nice telephoto lens.
The images again reveal a crushed Metropolis police car and city bus, but also much more. It appears that a large office building in Detroit is serving as a front for Wayne Enterprises. One of the images shows a “Wayne Financial” sign with a redesigned logo for Bruce Wayne’s company.
This particular Wayne Enterprises set of Batman v Superman looks like it is still under construction. It’s likely that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill could be on set in the coming days, possibly in their full Batman and Superman costumes.
Plot details for Batman v Superman are hard to come by, but a throw-down between the two heroes is assured thanks to not only the movie name but a recent teaser trailer that leaked from San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Many of Batman’s design elements appear to be borrowing from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns run of comics while Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is getting her own unique look for the film.
How much destruction can the two heroes possibly cause to Metropolis? We have yet to see any set photos for Gotham, though the previously mentioned teaser trailer definitely marks it as a setting. How the two clash and resolve their differences is definitely up in the air.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released to theaters on May 6, 2016. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince / Wonder Woman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Ray Fisher (Victor Stone / Cyborg), Holly Hunter, and Scoot McNairy.
What do you think of Detroit serving as a stand-in for Metropolis? Will Snyder ramp up the destruction even more than he did with Man of Steel? Sound off in the comments below.
