Latino Review is keeping up with the latest Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice [League Movie] set leaks and stuff.. The film is shooting in Detroit, for that “urban explorer” feeling. One scene (above) involves people protesting Superman as an alien and, presumably, his extreme property damage at the end of Man of Steel, as immortalized in Kyle Baker’s “Mass Murderer of Steel” game. There’s even a swastika involved.
There have also been a few Batman leaks like this grainy, surveillance style image of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit.
As you may have guessed from the few peeks at the Batman segment of the v., this movie will be much influenced by Frank Miller (like, what isn’t?) and actor Harry Lennix, who portrays Lieutenant General Swanwick, confirmed this in an interview:
According to the actor, those who enjoyed reading Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” four-issue comic book miniseries will surely love Snyder’s upcoming film, Batman News reported. “Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel ‘The Dark Knight Returns,’ I think will be pleased by that,” he answered when asked to give an update on the upcoming film. “This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies on this scope and scale.”
