Big Details on BATMAN V SUPERMAN - Film's Opening, Doomsday Battle, and More
Some more new details have surfaced for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They do contain SPOILERS, so I'm just throwing that out there. You can decide if you want to keep reading or not.
The information comes from Badass Digest, and it gives us some insight into the relationship between Clark Kent and Lois Lane, Superman's attitude, and how the battle with Doomsday plays out. But first lets start out with how the movie will open:
"Batman v Superman opens with Batman's origin and fast forwards to Bruce Wayne coming to Metropolis during the Superman/Zod fight, but that's just setting the stage for that character. From there the script turns its attention to Superman heavily, and it examines the implications of Superman in the real world."
It's going to be interesting to see a condensed version of Batman's origin. The main part of the story will take place two years after the events of Man of Steel. Clark and Lois are still in a relationship and are now living together. Clark still works at the Daily Planet, and while he's covering stuff like the Metropolis and Gotham football game, he is more interested in writing about Batman. The site then drops some intel on how the rest of the the world views Superman:
"Very early in the film Lois is in the Middle East following a story when Superman shows up to help her out. This becomes something of an international incident as other nations view Superman as a tool of the United States. China, for instance, doesn't want him in their air space. It's an interesting look at how a being like Superman would be viewed on a global scale."
Superman has learned a few lesson's since Man of Steel. He's apparently not going around and breaking necks anymore. At one point he confronts a villain in the story and says to him, "I won't snap your neck, I'm going to take you to prison." A lot of fans weren't happy with Superman breaking Zod's neck in the first film, so will this make them happy? Maybe, you can never really please all of the fans. Of course, the superhero does lose his temper at one point and threatens to break the villain's back. I'm ok with Supes doing what he needs to do to get the job done.The sire then reports a couple things about Superman's battle with Doomsday:
"When the Doomsday fight starts General Swanwick tells the military that Superman will move the battle away from populated areas because he's a hero, and that's what heroes do."
I guess they aren't looking at causing thousands of civilian deaths in the sequel. It's also interesting to learn that Swanwick is more of a supporter of Superman. I'm sure that trust will build throughout the course of the movie. In case you forgot, the General was tracking Superman with drones at the end of Man of Steel. Most people believe that Superman is a hero, except for Lex Luthor and Batman. Batman, of course, builds himself some anti-Superman weaponry.
The site says that this information comes from a script that was handed into the studio a month before principal photography began. So I'm sure a lot of what we've read here will end up in the film.
