Behind The Scenes: Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill Face-Off On The Set Of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a movie which doesn’t deserve its derided reputation. Yes, it’s hugely flawed but there’s much to enjoy in Zack Snyder’s 2016 superhero smash-up. One of the film’s highlights is Ben Affleck‘s turn as Batman/Bruce Wayne. It’s probably the best screen version of The Dark Knight that we’ve seen and it’s a shame Affleck never got to shine in a solo Batman film. He would have been great. 

It’s all water under the bridge now I suppose, things changed after the Justice League misfire and now Robert Pattinson has taken on the role in Matt Reeves’ The Batman

Anyway, here’s a behind the scenes image showing Affleck and Henry Cavill rehearsing Batman V Superman‘s climatic show-down under the direction of Zack Snyder.

Things to note: Affleck’s tousled hair (he’s obviously just taken off his mask), Cavill is out of costume and holding  his ‘sides’ which are printed on red, un-copyable paper. 

He might be in armour, but just look at the sheer size of Affleck when compared to Cavill and Snyder.
