I’m willing to bet if you walked up to ten people on the street and asked them “What happened to Batman’s parents?” at least nine of would correctly answer “They were murdered.” They could also probably tell you that it was by a mugger in a back alley. And yet Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will apparently need to tell us yet again that Thomas and Martha Wayne were gunned down in front of their young son, Bruce Wayne, thus teaching him that crime is bad, and that the best way to fight it is to dress up like a giant rodent and be a vigilante.
I’ll admit that’s a tad reductive, but it’s also true that we don’t need to see the Waynes die again. We especially don’t need to see it in Batman v Superman, which features an older, more experienced Batman (Ben Affleck). This is not an origin story, which, by the way, we will never need for Batman ever again unless something is radically altered in his history like being a computer programmer named Bruce Wain. But new set photo and videos shows that we’ll be getting the Dark Knight’s life-changing event for the umpteenth time. Hit the jump to check it out. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
