Entertainment Weekly had just revealed their Batman v. Superman Comic-Con cover. In the latest issue of their magazine, EW has released scene descriptions right from the movie, itself teasing the epic fight between Batman and Superman along with a few scenes with Bruce and Alfred. Get your first look right here:
A tease of the big Batman vs. Superman fight:
In his editing suite in Pasadena last month, Snyder showed off early passes of the money sequence, a rainy rooftop battle between the two capes. There’s an undeniable thrill to watching these pop culture icons go at it — throwing each other through walls and skylights — that can likely be traced back to a memory of lying stomach-down in the living room, an action figure in each hand.
Bruce Wayne and Alfred in a rundown, abandoned Wayne Manor:
And right now, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his loyal butler, Alfred (Jeremy Irons), are gravely intoning their lines into a burned-out fireplace, as Bruce prepares for his Valley of Elah moment with Superman. The billionaire vigilante appears weary but determined, not unlike the actor portraying him.
Bruce Wayne and Alfred in the Batcave:
Snyder also reveals a scene in the Batcave where Bruce Wayne outlines his motivations to a skeptical Alfred, a bit of realpolitik reasoning that weighs the morality of a preemptive strike on Superman against even the minimal chance of humanity’s destruction.
