New ‘Batman v Superman’ Scene Revealed?

Ben Affleck Batman Costume New Batman v Superman Scene Revealed?

It was one year ago that Oscar-winner Ben Affleck was cast as the new Bruce Wayne/Batman for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; news that sent the Internet into a frenzy. Since that time, those following the project have kept a close eye on the future Caped Crusader, as everything from the new Batsuit to Affleck possibly suffering a shoulder strain has been gobbled up by fans eager to learn more about the film.

Today, we have another update on Mr. Wayne, courtesy of Batman-News, one pertaining to his interest in sports.

Affleck, seemingly recovered from whatever was ailing him earlier in the month, was in Detroit to shoot a scene at the Masonic Temple. The building is typically used for events such as weddings and banquets, but Snyder’s team has allegedly turned the location into an MMA fighting ring (with a bar).

Their sources say that Bruce shows up to the arena to place a bet on a scheduled fight. One of the patrons justifiably is wondering what “this billionaire is doing here” before Wayne replies that he is “kind of a night person” and ends up having a conversation with someone (they don’t say who) at the bar.

Now, it’s entirely possible that the (for now, rumored) scene will amount to nothing more than Gotham’s favorite son kicking back and relaxing one night, but Batman v Superman doesn’t seem like the kind of film that’s ripe for many “throwaway” scenes.

With an agenda that currently consists of continuing the story established in Man of Steel, introducing audiences to new versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, and Lex Luthorand setting the stage for an entire DC Cinematic Universe (with new rumors of Justice League cameos popping up by the day), Snyder has a lot on his plate already without trying to add in cute little moments.

With all that in mind, the scene in question most likely plays a role in the movie’s overarching plot. But where exactly does it fit?

One distinct possibility is that Wayne is doing some detective work at the arena, using gambling as an excuse to mingle with Gotham’s underbelly. It’s actually quite plausible that this particular bit will serve as our first look (in the film, that is) at Affleck’s Wayne and establish his character before the superhero extravaganza gets rolling.

Since Batman v Superman is arriving just four years after Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy concluded, Snyder has to separate his version of Batman from the one that grossed $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office. Showing the new Wayne investigating some criminals one night (before possibly engaging in a fight – as is par for the course in movie bars) would be a natural way to illustrate how he uses his brains and brawn to his advantage – showcasing why he could pose a threat to Superman.

Though both previous cinematic iterations of Batman did some detective work, it would be fair to say that those films didn’t faithfully adapt that aspect of the character from the comics. If indeed Batman does some serious detective work in Dawn of Justice, it’ll be a first for the character onscreen (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm notwithstanding).

Keep in mind, this scene is still just a rumor, so it could amount to nothing at all. But if it’s true, we hope that the “kind of a night person” line survives the final cut. For all the doom and gloom in WB’s DC adaptations, Snyder and Nolan have found ways to sprinkle in some humor along the way.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be in theaters March 25, 2016.

  1. Well it’d be nice to see the detective side of Batman again, but I really don’t think they can really explore his bases as a detective in this film if most of the battle takes place in Metropolis. Even if it’s a Clark & Bruce team-up trying to bring down a big Kryptonite Konspiracy courtesy of Lex Luthor, it’d still be less of a movie about Batman as a detective and more about Batman being Batman.

    But I don’t know — reading the headline made me wonder if this Bruce Wayne masquerades as someone who likes to participate in MMA fighting, so as to reflect his love of extreme sports from DKR?

    • I’m not sure I follow your logic; Batman is being a detective when he’s out being Batman, that’s part of the gig. He doesn’t need to be in Gotham to have his detective technique and skills either. Maybe I’m misreading what you’re saying.

      As for the MMA idea, I like it if it were any other character, but in general Bats as his Bruce identity doesn’t want anyone to see him fighting or see his fighting style. As his Bruce character he would stay away from it.

  2. How badass would it be if we saw Dick Grayson or any other form of robin fighting in the ring. That would be kinda fun.

  3. SERIOUSLY? this is the PROBLEM with movie that I am looking for to THIS much being TWO freaking years away…

    I need to stop reading/watching/dreaming about this movie till 2016 summer.. I need to STOP myself from this.

    • if u wait til summer, u will miss the film on opening day… 3-25-16

      • Burn.

  4. Maybe we are going to see a new Wildcat not the world-class heavyweight boxer but a modern depictions as a MMA fighter.

  5. In all my 63 years I’ve never really given Batman being a detective a 2nd thought. He is just Batman, masked crime fighter who chooses children to be his partners. Never could figure THAT one out. If I want a detective movie I will hold my breath waiting for a mainstream big budget THE QUESTION movie. While the fan made Question movies on YouTube are OK for now, I’m willing to bet a big budget Question movie (or well produced TV show) would be a Big hit!

    • id recommend reading some books.

  6. This bar’s scene can be related to Superman and Bruce’s first encounter. Bruce is after the Joker, kinda duh, but the Joker is up to something with a lot of kryptonite. If that scene is for real, that one might be one of those WTF moment.

  7. When he’s not Batman, he’s a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. ( Tony’s best quote ever). I like the idea. Maybe we can finally see a more ‘fun’ Batman as well as a serious one, unlike any of the actor’s before him. (Well, I guess the parties at Wayne Manor in TDK trilogy count). I support this guy, I think he will be great as Batman.

    • He is not a genius, where the hell do you get that crap from, I think you’re confusing him with Tony Starks.

      • Perhaps genius is the wrong term. I suspect the DC fan is referring to Batman being a great detective and strategist as well as higly trained and educated in the fields of science and technology (and many other). He may not have the inventive mind of Tony Stark, but he is intelligent.

        • Wait a minute, Batman doesn’t have an inventive mind, are you even aware of the fact that there are dozens of satellite, super computers, armors, battle vehicles and so many other gadgets that batman he himself invented, without the help of Lucius Fox or anyone

          • I said: He may not have the inventive mind of Tony Stark.

            Don’t pull “of Tony Stark” out of that sentence. I didn’t say Batman couldn’t build or invent anything at all. It was clearly a comparison.

  8. Perhaps Cyborg is fighting in the ring at the MMA fight and gets badly hurt (because his opponent cheats) – and Bruce likes cyborg’s fighting spirit so he gives him the cyborg technology…

  9. So where’s Bruce/Batman? All I keep seeing is freakin Ben! Oh and I heard Arnold is coming back as Mr. Freeze, or then again maybe not.

  10. Wildcat from Justice Society.

  11. I’d like to see a live-action version of The Question. It would be cool if they added him the Justice League phase 2 roster.

  12. One laser eye, freeze breath, or punch from Superman, game over. This is not a competition this is murder.

  13. Well it could be that Bruce Wayne found out that superman aka “kent” was snooping around on the “Batman’s identity” and decided to show himself during the night time.
    Assuming Batman already knows Superman’s identity(of course he does).

  14. it will likely be one of the justice league he is going to see, that or bane, as it be nice to see some villain background moments too before they become villains

    green arrow ends up doing cage fighting in cars in the comics, and even in smallville, it worked well for the story

  15. I bet Batman has his hand broken after this picture
