Origin stories are great. They give us depth to character and a reason to fall in love or hate the hero or villain but what about when its been done before?

New eyewitness accounts at the filming locations for the up and coming movie [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) tell how the new film will once again re-create the famous scene from the comics in which Martha and Thomas Wayne are shot dead after seeing Zorro at the theatre with Bruce.

Recently our latest look at the murder came from [Gotham](series:1127075), the TV show that revolves primarily around CobblePot, Penguin, and James Gordon's lives leading from the murder of the Wayne's up until Bruce becomes Batman. The show told the iconic moment his parents were shot dead and is a major piece of plot development within the show, but with this in mind and that you see the exact same scene in the recent Nolan directed Batman movies, why do we need to see it again?

We can only hope that its not the same with Superman. Naturally most people are awake of both of the origins for these iconic superheroes but when it comes to Superman, its been repeated over and over whether it be on the big screen or on TV and at this point I don’t think anyone needs to see it again.

In other Batman news there are reported that [Aquaman](movie:264237) has been seen on set, making me wonder further if this is just going to be one giant origin story movie.

Whatever happens Batman v Superman will open in the UK on March 25, 2016.
