New BATMAN V SUPERMAN Set Video Continues to Feature Bruce Wayne

Now that on-location filming for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is underway we can expect plenty of set photos and videos because that’s how these things work now.  Yesterday, we got some of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, and today that filming continues as Affleck and/or his stunt double engage in some more action-oriented material.  I won’t “spoil” what it is even though it’s clearly nothing major, and the footage is unintentionally funny because it’s out of context.  If you do want some possible details on what’s happening in the scene, I’ve included them after the jump.

Hit the jump to check out the Batman v Superman set video.  The film also stars Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy, and Jeremy IronsBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens May 6, 2016.

According to Samuel Otten, who shot the video:

“Several Bruce Wayne stand-in’s and stunt doubles were on set today. You can see them blocking out a scene involving the rescue of a small girl and the collapsing of a large piece of the Wayne Financial building. Based on city buses and police cars, this is presumed to be in Metropolis, not Gotham. I don’t know that any of these are Ben Affleck himself, but you can be the judge. Probably him in the first sequence, but definitely not the later ones. At the very least, it’s Bruce Wayne.”

There’s an ongoing assumption that this movie is picking up the wreckage from Man of Steel, which is why Batman and Superman come to cross-purposes: Batman believes Superman is a threat, and the destruction of Metropolis is proof.  That’s a nice fan theory, but it’s important to remember that there are villains in this movie, and they could be responsible for fresh destruction.

    Can someone explain to me why Superman let his father die in Man of Steel? How can we be expected to like a Superman with zero charisma, who told his dad to f*** off cause he’s not his real dad, then stood & watched him die 5 mins later so that 10 people under a bridge didn’t witness his powers – regardless of the fact that a bus full of local classmates had seen him lift a school bus out a river when he was 12! Sorry but this Superman is not likable at all. Justice League is going to be awful with that level of storytelling.

      Did you watch the movie? The dad told him to stay where he was and not to save him even though he wanted to.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Obviously didn’t care about him very much then. Sorry but I physically couldn’t stand and watch while my father got swept away in a tornado, especially if I was Superman. It made no sense.

        Been saying this since the day I saw the movie… either he was so afraid of his dad, that he let him die to avoid letting him down… or he hated his dad so much, that he let him die. Either way, it’s sort of defies logic.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Exactly. It really put me off the film. Might seem a small part of the story, but this is SUPERMAN just standing their watching his own dad die. Then he went on to snap Zod’s neck too, guess he really is different nowadays.

        The problem with John Kent’s death in MoS was that it didn’t really have much of an effect on Clark becoming Superman. The character doesn’t learn anything from it. He doesn’t put on the costume because of his guilt, like Spider-Man. He just runs away, possibly on a halfhearted quest to find his origins, but more likely to escape the responsibility of being himself. It ends up being simply the first in a long line of failures for the character.

      He obeyed his father’s wishes by not rescuing him and exposing his powers to the people of earth. In doing so his father died – something that wieghed heavily on him – as he told Lois at his grave. Really it was the film’s way of showing that his father would rather choose death than see his son possibly come to harm from the people of Earth because of the way they may percieve him.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        But he’d already exposed his powers to a bus full of class mates, and there were about 10 people huddled under that bridge. It was ridiculous, lazy story telling and just made him look like a dick. Still, at least it weighed heavy on him I s’pose.

        It was only young children who saw him on the bus, under the bridge were adults with camera who might have been recording the tornado and would’ve recorded Clark’s powers exposing him to the world. Saving the bus didn’t exactly equal to the world finding out about him.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        No one under the bridge would’ve known what was about to happen or had their phones ready to record, by the time he’d saved his dad, all they would’ve had was about 10 people who’d seen something during a tornado that no one would believe.

        His father also scolded him after saving the bus telling him that maybe letting them die instead of saving them is what he needs to do. I think the point of that scene along w the tornado is that Clark did what his father said to do – even if it meant sacrificing his own life.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Thats just not Superman though. I could kinda get with it if Pa Kent had stopped him from flying in to save a stranger even, but standing by while his own dad dies no way. It honestly put me off from then on, that’s just not Supes.

      • Wliia

        What? Now that would have been awful. Not saving a stranger would have been cold, I think. But because it was his father silently asking him not to save him, it became less about Clark saving himself, and more about a father sacrificing himself for his son. Anyhow, that’s how I perseived it.

      i agree. man of steel was another one of those films where the trailers are far superior to the films. right up there with phantom menace and prometheus. amazing trailers, crap films. “it’s a trap!!”

    Bruce Wayne stunt doubles? Zack Snyder, when will you learn that enough is enough and this movie is packed enough as it is?!

    • DEADP00L

      Thats like asking Michael Bay to write an oscar worthy antiwar drama.

    • Oliver Queen

      The hell are you on? Every action film has stunt doubles for the dangerous stunts, it’s not as if he’s adding even more new characters, your basically saying there are too many crew members because there are already a lot of characters in the movie, does that make any sense?

      • SadBatman

        I think he was making a joke. (I hope he was making a joke.)

        You should look up more often, then maybe you’ll be able to see the joke that went over your head.

    He doesnt give off the confidence in running through falling debris a vet of combat would to my mind. Maybe he’s having an off day but the man is handling himself rather negligently. Could be just him playing off wayne as a rookie I guess.

  • SomeGuy

    I really only care about the Batman/Bruce Wayne aspects of this film. Nothing else intrigues me, which is strange since we’ve seen Batman on the big screen both more often and more recently than any of the other “heroes”.

    • DEADP00L

      Batman is infinitely more complex so naturally would bring more to the plate. I mean the No Mans Land story ark itself would be dead if it had happened to superman because he’d just rebuilt everything in the span of a month. The character really doesnt hold well on his own and it gets repetitive after a while.

      On the other hand there re so many versions of Batmans story that can be tapped into – all because he’s just a human.

      But both Superman AND wonderwoman are pretty bland.

    Afleck is molesting little girl. Any way the dumb fuck would have broken the little girl back with his way of grabbing her like that.
