Straight from the Detroit set of Batman v Superman, this footage shows Ben Affleck as an older take on Bruce Wayne.
While we’ve already seen what Batman will look like in Warner Bros. Studios’ upcoming Batman v Superman, we now have our first look at what Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne will be like when the film flies out in 2016. Courtesy of Samuel Otten who captured the set footage from Batman v Superman’s Detroit shoot, we see a Bruce Wayne who looks older, and has a little bit of greying at his temples.
Otten also shared the following (warning: mild spoilers inbound):
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.
So far, Batman v Superman seems to be on the right track, with the film proving to be the most popular out of the San Diego Comic-Con. In addition to Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Batman v Superman stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), with Zack Snyder directing the film for a May 6, 2016 theatrical release.
Time will tell if DC can match Marvel’s movie success but here’s to hoping. Are you liking what you’ve seen of Batman v Superman so far or will it pale in comparison to Marvel’s super-successful films?
