"Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" premieres on March 25, 2016. Ahead of its release date, set photos and possible plot details have been leaked on various online sites, upping fans' excitement over the much-anticipated movie. This time reports of a particular scene suggests Bruce Wayne is a fan of Mixed Martial Arts.
An anti-government demonstrator dressed as Batman yells slogans accompanied by passengers on a bus, during a protest against the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro June 12, 2014. Placard reads "We want to be the champions in healthcare, education and not just in football."
Batman-news has again stirred up fans' curiosity of the cape crusader movie with its latest reveal of Mr. Wayne's interest in the sport. According to the site, Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder were up in Detroit's Masonic Temple last week shooting a scene for the movie. The Masonic Temple is reportedly mostly used as a reception for weddings, parties, banquets, and all other kinds of celebrations. A source told the site some interesting details on the scene and why the production team chose the specific location.
The large kitchen in the Temple was said to have been transformed into an underground ultimate MMA fighting arena and bar. Think Brad Pitt and Edward Norton in "Fight Club." The "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" scene reportedly reveals a large group of men betting on the outcome of a fight. Then in comes the billionaire Bruce Wayne, which makes the men wonder what he is doing there. To which he replies, "I'm kind of a night person."
According to the source, the scene ends up with Wayne heading for the bar and having a conversation with an unidentified character.
Screenrant reports the leaked scene would somehow fit into one possible scenario to the ever developing plot for "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The site claims the MMA fight scene could be used as a possible introduction for Batman before his crime-fighting escapades. The cape crusader investigates and uses gambling as an excuse to gain insight and mingle with Gotham's underground syndicates. It would reportedly also be one way for Zack Snyder to differentiate a new Batman from the Christian Bale-lead "Dark Knight" trilogy. It would somehow be a fresh start to showcase a different Batman after four years when Christopher Nolan's trilogy concluded.
According to Screenrant, the leaked scene details would show that the new cape crusader in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is someone who knows how to use both his brains and brawns to his advantage, which would ultimately pose as a threat to the "Man of Steel."
