After Warner Bros. Tours hyped a big DC comics related reveal that turned out to simply be an exhibit of costumes and props from past Batman movies, fans who were hoping for a reveal of Wonder Woman’s costume or other Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice news were left feeling a little bit unfulfilled.

Aside from a set photo of Ben Affleck brooding by the Batmobile in his Batman costume and the announcement of Batman V. Superman‘s title, there’s been very little in the way of official information since the movie began filming. On the bright side, there have been plenty of rumors to make up for the lack of concrete information and even a glimpse of Gal Gadot on set – albeit wearing street clothes rather than her full Wonder Woman get-up.

Now some more unofficial set photos have emerged online, showing a building that will house LexCorp in Batman V. Superman and what looks like a giant Superman statue. The latter was most likely erected in honor of Superman, as a kind of thank-you to him for helping to “save” Metropolis in Man of Steel. If that’s the case then it’s a nice gesture, but you can’t help but wonder if the money might have been better spent repairing a few buildings. The LexCorp building is, according to The Bananadoctor, an old General Motors building opposite opposite Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac, and filming will take place there on June 12th and June 13th.

A split-second glimpse of a LexCorp building in Man of Steel established that the “young and edgy” company run by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) did have some headquarters in Metropolis, though it’s highly possible that this LexCorp building was damaged – if not completely destroyed – during the battle between Superman and General Zod. If that’s the case then this new building could be where Lex moved his central operations to in the wake of the fight, or it could be some kind of lab or factory.

The statue of Superman is approximately 15 feet tall and is mounted on what look like steps leading up to a building, though since the statue was mounted in front of a green screen it’s anyone’s guess what the backdrop will be. Perhaps the two things are connected, and Lex Luthor is responsible for building the Superman statue as a gesture of friendship. Hey, it could happen.


Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for May 6th, 2016.

  1. @reno2200 Some are speculating it is a memorial statue as seen in the DOS comic. One of the rumors has been Metallo kills Superman at the end of the film despite Batan’s attempt to save Superman.

    The idea is Superman’s death in Batman vsSuperman forces Batman to form the JL. So it leads into JL. Maybe at the end of BvsS a post-credit scene will show some threat coming.

    JL would have the new team formed and confronting the threat but being overwhelmed. Then in the last act of JL Superman returns and helps turn the tide in JL’s favor.

    Its plausible and gives a reason for having to form the JL.

  2. Just to clarify. I don’t want them to do the DOS story in this film. Especially if it means Superman is seen only at the end of JL. Cavill’s 3rd option is up with JL and I want to see him get as much time as possible onscreen in his last outing as Superman.


    • You just revealed the plot and the mcguffin of BvS.

      Next time include a spoiler warning!! :P

      • Mcguffin? Are you saying the plot/cguffin are aimed at making the studio able to sell action toys. Batman vs Superman action toys? Lots of toys. Lots of money to be made.

  4. A lot of people are too eager to see Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume. People in the TV/movie industry, film the soft scenes first then the heavy action. If Gal Gadot did get injured should would not be wearing a a arm brace throughout the film. Also the down time gives Gal Gadot more time to bulk up for her grrreat big amazing Amazon entrances… stay tuned, WPIR 88.5 FM Priesta radio

  5. Priesta altho you have a few typos, you are so right. Studios film the soft scenes, first so if Gal did get injured she would not be wearing a cast for her later scenes, like Halle Berry did or that guy from Transformers. I agree Gal Gadot has not been seen lately so we can be amazed at her body and costume. Snyder did say he has a pic of stand-ins in the costumes, certainly the studios have a release date for the Amazing Amazon pics. Besides the guy tha trained/whipped th cast of both 300 and MoS in shape is helping Gal Gadot get in shape.
    If she becomes too muscular the fans will call her a man/tranny/she-hulk… like they call Mrs. Obama. As for WW’s costume, Xena- Warrior Princess, the movie 300, American Gladiators and the movie Gladiaors should be a blue print.

  6. Forbes said a reason Man of Steel 2 will not be announced at SDCC is that Cavill may not stay past Justice league when his run of options is up. Whether he wants to leave or WB wants him to leave, if they don’t agree to continue who should replace Cavill as Superman?

  7. I think that not only should GAl GAdot have some fix-up as Wonder Woman but I personally think that there should a Marvel Vs. DC film.
