One thing that fans can’t seem to agree on his what his going in that scene, first teased in the sneak peak clip for “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”. In the scene, Superman (Henry Cavill) his seen walking towards a chained up Batman (Ben Affleck) in some kind of underground bunker, he then rip his cowl off, while looking extremely angry and un-Superman like. We have also seen clips from this sequence and setting in the trailers too, with the latest trailer showing flying creatures very reminiscent of Darkseid’s minions from the comic .
Thanks the films costume designer Michael Wilkinson, who spoke to Omelete, we now have confirmation of what is going on in the scene, that confirms a long held fan theory and rumor.
He tells the outlet that the scene is indeed part of a nightmare sequence that Bruce Wayne has in the film, as he sees what a future world would look like under the reign of Superman.
“Zack had a great idea of this sort of nightmare-ish vision, almost a vision of the future, a post-apocalyptic vision. It’s like a dream that Ben has, so we wanted to, it has almost a Mad Max quality to it where it’s like the end of the world, trying to survive and then of course Superman and his minions come, so it’s sort of a way of representing the amazing amounts of, the sort of obsessive quality that Bruce Wayne has about the threat of Superman.
In this film, Superman, of course he’s normally seen as a figure of hope, a positive thing, but in this film, his motivations, the consequences of his actions are really being questioned by the world. Is he a savior? Or is he a dangerous alien with unknown intentions? And this becomes an obsession for Bruce Wayne. And he really wants to sort it out. So, it’s manifested in this sort of incredible dream that Zack decided to create.”
Wilkinson went on to confirm that The Flash (Ezra Miller) will also cameo in the the film:
“You do get a glimpse of him”
But we won’t get a look at his iconic costume just yet, as it is something hte designer is keen to work on.
“really looking forward to taking the amazing, iconic costume for the Flash and interpreting it in a fresh way.”
