Stars Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck have talked a bit about opening scene of BATMAN v SUPERMAN in the new set report from TOTAL FILM (via LATINIO-REVIEW.COM). In fact, we've seen a bit of it in both trailers that have been released. What is it? It's basically the battle between Superman and Zod from MAN OF STEEL from Bruce Wayne's point of view. Here's what Cavill had to say...
"What happens there is one of Bruceís buildings gets destroyed and heís trying to save all the people inside the building and he canít. So he is this angry person who fears what Superman may do. Why are they just going to trust this super-powered alien? What if he does decide to turn against us?"
And Affleck's take...
"Heís found himself in a place of harboring a tremendous amount of rage for Superman. So itís how he got there, and what thatís done to him, and what thatís done to people around him like Alfred, who are, I think, very scared and worried for him. Itís something thatís interesting and new."
