Production on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wrapped just a few weeks ago, with director Zack Snyder now starting the lengthy post-production process on this superhero adventure. There will be SPOILERS that follow, so, as always, read on at your own risk. While we wait for the first trailer to surface, Badass Digest has new plot details that tease a major fight between Superman (Henry Cavill) and the villainous Doomsday, along with plot points that may have been put in place to alleviate some fans' concerns from last year's Man of Steel.
The story opens with Batman's (Ben Affleck) origins then fast forwards to Bruce Wayne coming to Metropolis during the Superman/Zod fight in Man of Steel. The script by Chris Terrio, which was turned in just before production started, then turns its attention primarily to Superman. He is now living with Lois Lane and still working at The Daily Bugle, although he'd rather be writing about Batman than his current assignments, which include covering local football games between Metropolis and Gotham. Certain details in the script, like Superman telling a villain that he won't "snap his neck," seem to be a direct response to some fan complaints from Man of Steel. Superman later "loses his cool" though, and threatens to break the bad guy's back.
One of the biggest complaints of Man of Steel was the immense damage that was inflicted during the Superman/Zod fight. Before a major fight with Doomsday, Harry Lennix's General Swanwick tells the military that Superman will move the fight away from any populated areas, which is also a direct response to complaints from last year's Superman adventure. Swanwick seems to have changed his tune regarding Superman from the last film, and is now an ardent supporter of the Man of Steel. It's noted that most of the world thinks Superman is a hero, with notable exceptions being Lex Luthor and "a cautious Batman."
All of these details reportedly came from Chris Terrio's script that was turned in one month before shooting began. It isn't known how much that draft was altered during production, or how much will change during the lengthy post-production process.
