Yesterday, we showed you new photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice courtesy of Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con preview, which featured Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and a long-haired Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Today, we have new scene descriptions from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which take place at Wayne Manor, the Batcave and the rooftop where these superhero icons square off. The Wayne Manor scene features Bruce Wayne and his butler Alfred (Jeremy Irons), both described as "comically grim," while the Manor itself has apparently seen better days, described as a "derelict husk" with "strewn leaves across the floor." Here's an excerpt from Entertainment Weekly's article describing this scene.
"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 Batman v Superman trailer that debuted in April included a tease of Batman and Superman's showdown, with the Man of Steel hovering above the Dark Knight in an epic rain-soaked stare down. EW got to see portions of the actual fight, where these superheroes are seen "throwing each other through walls and skylights." The excerpt contains the following information.
"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."
One can only hope that this footage will be released during Warner Bros.' Comic-Con panel next week. The magazine also goes onto describe a scene where Bruce Wayne and Alfred have a discussion in the Batcave.
"Zack 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."
