It's still mere speculation n my part, but I'm sure the battle for Metropolis caught his attention. Although it is kind of funny having all these heroes in Batman VS Supeman showing up only after the events of MOS are well over with. I mean where were they when they were needed?
I've heard speculation that the footage being filmed last week of Affleck in Bruce's civvies and driving a car is actually set during the climax of MOS, showing what he was up to then. It might explain the damage to the city.

I thought it was a chase scene they were filming. And wouldn't have made more sense for Bruce to have flown to Metropolis in teh Batwing or plane rather trying to fight the outgoing traffic coming from the city?

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Well, what I've heard is that he's supposed to have been in Metropolis on business when the brown stuff hits the fan. For all we know, he's then jumping in the car to return to Gotham or whatever.

One of the scenes filmed shows him rescuing a kid from falling debris, so it wasn't all a chase scene. Besides, surely your argument could apply even if this is a brand-new bit of destruction - why is Bruce in his civvies and not the Batgear an why is he racing an ordinary car and not the Batmobile?

Since he's older, for all we know, Bruce had retired and came back after the end of MOS - so had no gear to hand in that period.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah, it might also be a way of answering the 'why didn't Batman help out?' question that's been raised since it was known that he was around during the end of MOS.

Ooo, maybe he's visiting Metropolis with Selena when the whole MOS goes down and she gets killed. That would piss him off.

Is it wrong that I'm already bored with this movie?

I like that idea, although it shows Superman to be even more inept if Bruce Wayne is saving people during the destruction and Superman was shown only saving... Lois Lane. Oh, and that family at the end.

Unless that's the point and that's Bruce's POV in Batman vs. Superman: that Superman is dangerous and poses a threat to mankind. Which I can totally buy - showing Bruce's role in the destruction from Man of Steel would help set-up Bruce's POV well enough.

I just hope that we actually then see Superman realize the consequences of his actions in Man of Steel. I would be a lot less hard on Man of Steel if we saw a Superman in Batman vs. Superman admit and grow from his mistakes/errors. I know a lot of people are quick to defend Superman's actions in Man of Steel, but it would be nice to at least acknowledge the overall destruction and loss of life in that movie. At the very least, it would show growth and development on Superman's part. Which would be nice to see given that we only saw Superman come into his own at the end of the last movie. Even though he's sharing billing with Batman this time around, some character development on Superman's part would still be nice.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

All this plot speculation reminds me of the months and years leading up to ST09 and STID. People got really bent out of shape way before anything was actually known about the scripts. Looks like this one is going to go the same way.

Truthfully the scene and the pictures are out of context, it would nice to know about the scenes in question.

Not sure why they're bothering to hide the costume. We all know what it looks like by now.

Jeez, the "consequences of his actions"? Why do people always make it sound like he leveled the entire city of Metropolis by himself? Lol

Yeah I can certainly see him feeling some guilt over the destruction that occurred, and even how he inadvertently lured Zod to Earth in the first place. But this continual suggestion that he's somehow fully to blame, or that he was nothing but a complete, miserable failure in the movie -- despite the fact he nearly killed himself to stop the World Engine and then managed to stop Zod from destroying all life on Earth-- just continues to baffle me.

That new haircut makes Henry look like Christopher Reeve.

The suit colors definitely look a lot brighter there than in the official pic they released of him in the rain.

Of course... the colors also looked brighter on the original suit as well, before everything got darkened down so much in post.
