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 Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Jeremy Irons. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens May 6, 2016.
[Possible Spoilers Ahead]
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.
