EW Reveals Various Batman v Superman Scene Descriptions

Entertainment Weekly’s special San Diego Comic-Con issue contains plenty of new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice details, including descriptions of 3 interesting scenes from the movie. The first scene takes place at Wayne Manor, which is described as  a “derelict husk” with “strewn leaves across the floor”, and features Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). 

Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his loyal butler, Alred (Jeremy Irons), are gravely intoning their lines into a burned-out fireplace, as Bruce prepares for his Valley of Elah moment with Superman. The billionaire vigilante appears weary but determined, not unlike the actor portraying him.

The second scene teases the highly anticipated showdown between Batman and Superman. 

In his editing suite in Pasadena last month, Snyder showed off early passes of the money sequence, a rainy rooftop battle between the two capes. There’s an undeniable thrill to watching these pop culture icons go at it—throwing each other through walls and skylights.

The final description features Alfred and Bruce talking in the Batcave, with the latter talking about his motivations in the film and taking on such a powerful force as Superman. 

Snyder also reveals a scene in the Batcave where Bruce Wayne outlines his motivations to a skeptical Alfred, a bit of realpolitik reasoning that weighs the morality of a preemptive strike on Superman against even the minimal chance of humanity’s destruction.

 In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. 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. 

 Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
