The epic fight of the son of krypton and the knight of Gotham is just about to ensue in less than two months. So, we at Wirally, being the responsible comic book and superhero geeks that we are, took upon ourselves to impart our knowledge about the legendary movie and practically show off. Without further adieu we present to you wonderful facts about, Batman V Superman : Dawn Of Justice
BECAUSE HE’S BATMAN !!
Ben Affleck was originally offered to direct the predecessor, Man of Steel (2013), but turned down the offer saying he wasn’t experienced in visual effects shots: “A lesson I’ve learned is to not look at movies based on budget, how much they’ll spend on effects or where they will shoot. Story is what’s important.” He was later cast to portray Bruce Wayne/Batman in the sequel.
LET ME SHOW..MY TOYS..HA !!
According to some rumours, Jared Leto as The Joker, will have a cameo in a Post Credit scene, which will be the opening scene of Suicide Squad. In addition to that, Superman will know the existence of The Joker throughout the movie and he will haunt Batman with it. Heath Ledger played Joker in the previous Batman movie: The Dark Knight (2008). He also won Best Actor (Posthumous) Oscar for the role.
PUMP UP LIKE A PRO…!!
Henry Cavill put on twice the amount of muscle mass for this film than he did for Man of Steel (2013). His trainer said that it was possible because Cavill had kept up a lot of his Superman fitness regimes in the break between the two films, so they were able to build on that foundation and achieve an even bigger body this time around.
A MOVIE THAT TOOK 15 YEARS TO MAKE…!!!
The film was originally pitched in August 2001 by Andrew Kevin Walker, with Wolfgang Petersen to direct and Akiva Goldsman to script. Goldman’s script had Bruce Wayne’s fiancée slain by the Joker, which sends him on a revenge rampage and brings him into conflict with Superman who tries to stop him. The film was shelved, but in Goldsman’s I Am Legend (2007), a teaser poster for the film (the Superman shield inside a bat) was seen in the opening scene.
AWWW…..BATMAN GOT A BIT NEEDY..!!
Ben Affleck stated in a interview that he had asked if he could have the batsuit when filming was complete. The producers said yes, but that he’d have to pay $100,000 in order to keep it. Affleck quickly changed his mind and asked if he could just take a picture with it instead.
WILL THE REAL BATMAN, PLEASE STAND UP..!!
Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Matthew Goode, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage, Max Martini, Armie Hammer, Jensen Ackles, Joe Manganiello and Matthias Schoenaerts were all speculated to play the part of Bruce Wayne/Batman before Ben Affleck was chosen for the role.
I’M TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT, YO!
Ben Affleck is 18 months older than Christian Bale, marking the first time the actor taking on the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne is older than the actor who last played the role in a live action movie. All other Batman roles the actor succeeding the role has been younger than the actor who previously played the character. Val Kilmer took the role from Michael Keaton and he is 8 years younger. George Clooney, who is 18 months younger, took the role from Kilmer. Bale is 13 years younger than Clooney.
WE HAVE ONE VACANCY, SO WE ARE GONNA HAVE.. TRYOUTS..!!
Before Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor, Matt Damon, Bradley Cooper, Joaquin Phoenix, Adam Driver and Jean Dujardin were in the Warner Bros’s list to play the part.
Also, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine, Ryan Kwanten, Matthew Fox and Scott Porter were all linked for the role of Barry Allen/The Flash in a previous iteration. Ezra Miller was cast.
This is Diana Prince/Wonder Woman’s first live action theatrical film appearance. The character has previously appeared in television programs and direct-to-DVD animated films.
REACH OUT AND TOUCH EXPERIENCE !!
This will be the first ever film in 3D film to feature not just Batman, but Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman. Superman’s first 3D film was the story before this one, Man of Steel (2013) and Green Lantern had a 3D film in Green Lantern (2011) which is not connected to this DC film franchise.
WHY SO SERIOUS….!?
