On set video appears to confirm Ben Affleck will play ageing Dark Knight
Batman vs Superman plot details have been leaked online along with on-set video footage showing Ben Affleck filming a scene as Bruce Wayne.
A regular outlet for plot leaks for future films like Star Wars Episode 7, Badass Digest revealed:
“My sources indicate that when BvS opens Batman has existed for close to 30 years, which would place Wayne in his 50s (which is why I expected more grey in Affleck’s hair).
In this version Batman is still an urban legend, a creature of the night, and no one has ever taken his picture. But he’s had plenty of adventures, and the Batcave includes a memorial centered around a tattered Robin costume.”
This interpretation of the film’s basic outline would appear to be confirmed by a clandestine set video posted online by onlooker Sam Otten. Shooting close to Ben Affleck on set in Detroit here’s his description of the footage:
“Several Bruce Wayne stand-in’s and stunt doubles were on set today. You can see them blocking out a scene involving the rescue of a small girl and the collapsing of a large piece of the Wayne Financial building.
Based on city buses and police cars, this is presumed to be in Metropolis, not Gotham. I don’t know that any of these are Ben Affleck himself, but you can be the judge.
Probably him in the first sequence, but definitely not the later ones. At the very least, it’s Bruce Wayne.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit cinemas April 29th 2016 starring Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
