Within EW’s special San Diego Comic-Con issue, we are given snippets of information from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s not much, but it’s just enough to satisfy your curiosity but leave you wanting for more. Here’s what we’re given:
The first glimpse that we’re given is set in Wayne Manor, which is described to us as a “derelict husk” with “strewn leaves across the floor.”
Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his loyal butler, Alfred (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 next scene provides us with more details on the rooftop fight scene between Batman and the Superman. There stands the possibility of causing even more damage to the city.
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.
And finally, the third scene describes Batman’s motivation for confronting Superman as Bruce and Alfred discuss the possible ramifications involved.
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.
