Filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been underway for over a month now, and the production has done a good job thus far at keeping leaked photos and videos to a minimum. I assume some of that it just because they haven’t done much outdoor shooting, but all we’ve really seen so far is Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, which looks like Ben Affleck with slightly graying temples. Beyond that, there’s been a statue, some rubble, and Zack Snyder calling a local radio station.
But spoilers will still leak out, and we now might have information on the Batman v Superman ending, Luthor’s plan, and where this film falls chronologically in relation to Man of Steel. So I will put this as clearly as I can: There are spoilers after the jump. Do not click “Continue Reading” if you do not want to know these plot points. Now that you’ve been warned, hit the jump if you don’t have a problem knowing new details about the movie. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
An extra told GeekTyrant that he had worked on the set for ten days, and the ending had already been filmed:
“One of the scenes shot featured Batman breaking into Lexcorp to steal kryptonite, and apparently Lexcorp had somehow gotten a hold of General Zod’s body.”
Badass Digest confirms this report, and adds:
Lex has been gathering pieces and debris from the World Engine and he has used them to synthesize Kryptonite. Meanwhile he has also gotten ahold of Zod’s corpse, and it is the key to his master plan to defeat Superman. He uses that tissue to…
BD then refrains from completing the sentence, but then shows an outline of Doomsday. As you may recall, Doomsday was previously rumored to be one of the film’s villains.
As for the movie’s timeline, GeekTyrant’s tipster says Batman v Superman picks up “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.”
So there you have it. I honestly don’t feel like the film’s been that spoiled. It will be spoiled when all the trailers and TV spots come out.
