Ben Affleck Shares Behind-The-Scenes Photos From ‘Batman V Superman,’ Surprises Fans In The Batmobile
Just as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gets closer and closer to its premiere, Ben Affleck shared some exciting new photos from the set of the film. From a few still shots of Affleck and director Zack Snyder to his ride in the Batmobile, the images surprised fans with yet another behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipate movie.
The Batman v Superman star started by sharing a short video of himself driving the Batmobile around town. In the video, which Affleck posted on Instagram, the actor selected one lucky fan to ride along with him. “I took the Batmobile for a spin and surprised some fans!” Affleck wrote alongside the video. “Enter for your chance to take a ride in the Batmobile and attend the NY premiere of #BatmanVSuperman. Just click the link in my bio.”
According to PEOPLE, fans can enter the draw to take a ride in the Batmobile for as little as $10. The lucky fan who wins will also get a ride in a helicopter with Henry Cavill and an opportunity to walk the red carpet alongside the stars of the movie. The project is a joint campaign between Warner Bros. Pictures and OMAZE.
“I will have the chance to fly in a helicopter with the winner of Omaze’s latest campaign alongside Batman v Superman,” Cavill stated. “I’ve done some flying before (wink wink) but helicopters always feel just that little bit of a notch up!”
In addition to the ride in the Batmobile, Collider is reporting that Jesse Eisenberg has also joined charitable campaigns as the movie gears up for its premiere. Eisenberg is backing SEED Project, which will award a fan the opportunity to take pictures with him on the red carpet.
“I look forward to meeting the Omaze winner and taking a few shots – with a camera, of course – at the movie’s red carpet premiere in New York City,” Eisenberg stated.
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck went on to share an Instagram pic of him in his Batman costume surrounded by other crew members. The shot was taken during a scene in the film and features Batman crouching beside a man lying on the ground in a warehouse. According to Hollywood Life, the scene was featured in the last trailer and includes Batman taking out a room full of bad guys in a warehouse.
“Behind-the-scenes with our all-star crew,” Affleck captioned the image.
Lastly, Affleck posted a picture on Instagram of him in character as Bruce Wayne standing beside Snyder. The photo was taken during the day and features a destroyed bus in the background. Based on the setting, this scene is likely Wayne’s point of view of what went down at the end of Man of Steel.
“On set with our #BatmanVSuperman director Zack Snyder,” he wrote.
At the same time, USA Today is reporting that Affleck is having as much fun as he can with his new role as Batman. This includes a surprise appearance at Warner Brothers Studio. Apparently, while fans toured the studio’s Batman part of the studio, they were asked about which superhero would win in a battle, Batman or Superman. Whenever a fan took Superman’s side, Affleck would hop out of the Batmobile and make his case otherwise.
“Superman doesn’t even have a cool car to put you in. I’ve got like eight of these cars,” Affleck told one fan.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, and Laurence Fishburne. The movie is set to open in theaters everywhere on March 25.
