Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice made its way into the most recent copy of Entertainment Weekly and one of the many treats revealed for fans was a host of scenes explained.
In the great words of Ledger’s Joker, “Here we go!”
EW explains the scene that takes place in Wayne manor with Alfred Pennyworth who is played by (Jeremy Irons) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as “almost comically grim.” The Wayne Manor has been described to have represented a “derelict husk” with “strewn leaves across the floor”.
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. – Entertainment Weekly
A snip-it of the much-anticipated battle 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 – EW
A scene that we get a taste from in the first full trailer where Bruce and Alfred have a philosophical discussion in the Batcave.
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. – EW
