The blogging world seemingly lost it’s mind last week when a viral image popped-up and gave the impression that Batman v Superman was going to be split into two films. An aspect that didn’t seem impossible at the time as the film’s shoot was a lengthy one. Even though the itself image could have been easily faked by anyone on the internet and it’s origin should make it automatically suspect.
Let’s be honest, Wayne is the most important hero in the DC ranks currently.
This was likely from David Goyer’s script before it’s major overhaul by Argo‘s Chris Terrio. Frank Miller’s comic The Dark Knight Returns is heavily influencing the film which had Batman as the centric character so this wasn’t too shocking.
The two Batman suits we’ve seen are also direct designs from Dark Knight Returns. I have assume the rewrites from Mr. Terrio were to include the other three heroes into the Miller inspired story.
It’s been confirmed we’ll be seeing Batman’s origin yet again, as Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be playing Thomas Wayne in the film. Director Zack Snyder is indeed putting his stamp on the new Batman franchise. An aged-up Batman is also a part of the film’s story having him grizzled and working behind the scenes for a long time.
Another call-back to Miller’s comic that supports claims the film could lean more towards Batman.
The mid-point of the film is a fight between Batman and Superman which according to them this isn’t big enough to be used as a final act. While the final action scene of the film would likely overshadow that tiff in the middle. This is somewhat more proof that a split isn’t going to happen.
