Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be one of the most divisive superhero films ever produced, but even many of the film’s ardent critics agree that the warehouse fight sequence with Batman is one of the Caped Crusaders finest moments on the big screen. Now, director Zack Snyder has shared a behind-the-scenes image from the scene on his official Vero account.
The image features Ben Affleck’s stunt double, Richard Cetrone, in costume as the Dark Knight taking a moment to himself during the filming of the warehouse fight. Zack Snyder provided the following comment on the image:
“Found this on my phone. That’s Richard trying to find a quiet place during the warehouse fight.”

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter.

5 Reasons To Revive ‘Batman Beyond’
It’s a great time for fans of DC animation. A long awaited third season of Young Justice has finally been announced. This is alongside the slew of animated movies, which unlike the live-action DC films, have generally received great critical praise.
Recently, DC released Batman and Harley Quinn. It boasts a return to the creative style of Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, bringing back the voice talents of Batman: The Animated Series stars Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester as Batman and Nightwing, respectively.
This is the closest we’ve come to a new DCAU series in more than 10 years. So why stop there? We last heard from the DCAU when Justice Leauge Unlimited ended in 2006. Though that series ended with a satisfying resolution involving an epic battle with Darkseid, there’s another series that never got real closure, that has plenty of untapped potential: Batman Beyond
The futuristic series ran on Kids WB from 1999 – 2001. It featured a young Batman, Terry McGinnis, taking up the mantle from an elderly Bruce Wayne, who guided the teen from the shadows. Despite the show’s critical and commercial success, WB wanted to take the network in a lighter direction, and unceremoniously pulled the show after a measly 52 episodes.
Though the show ended nearly 15 years ago, it’s remained an iconic iteration of Batman. It was so darkly distinctive, with its fantastic animation, mature storytelling and shocking violence. These distinctive qualities have allowed Batman Beyond to survive in comic book form to this day. It’s been part of the mainstream DC comics canon for years now, and through its many different storylines has shown remarkable creative staying power.
This suggests that there’s plenty of reason for Batman Beyond to come back to the air. With Batman and Harley Quinn’s imminent release, and the revival of Young Justice looming, the time is ripe for a Batman Beyond revival. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
