More Details About Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!


More tidbits from the Total Film article on BVS
Jess Eisenberg commented about the film’s take on his character – Lex Luthor, “He is a lot of the things we know about the character. It’s a very modern take on his otherwise historic and iconic character. He has a, I would say, recognisably modern psychology, whether it’s being used to charm or destroy.”

The actor goes on to talk about working with Ben Affleck who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman, “It’s strange acting with people like Ben Affleck, having to condescend to someone like him. Off set, you’re thinking of this person is reverential terms, and then on set I condescending him, really quite nasty…”

Moving on to Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman sharing how she won the role”
“It’s been a long process. It started when I was back in Los Angeles and I was told I had a very important audition for a Warner Bros production, but no one said what it was. After a month or two months, they called me and said that they wanted to test me for this movie. It’s crazy, because you feel like you’re working with the CIA because everything is so confidential. And then, a week later, Zack Snyder called me. He said, ‘OK, I’m not sure you have it in Israel or how big it is in Israel, but have you heard of Wonder Woman?’ And then my jaw literally dropped. I died for a few seconds, then I went back to life. [laughs] Then I tried to get back my coolest voice, and not talk like I’m shaky and overwhelmed.”

BVS director, Zack Snyder chimed in about how Batman has an advantage over Superman in their battle
“The advantage that Batman has is the goodness of Superman,” he explained. “The compliance to fair lay that Superman has…Batman knows how to exploit Superman.”
So obviously that means Bats is going to fight dirty employing his gadgets and that armored suit which, surprisingly, is totally CGI. Yep, the suit that’s been on display at all the big cons this year was never a prop used in the film. Affleck described wearing the mo-cap suit, “the most humiliating, ridiculous thing in the world. You can move freely, and they put [the suit] on digitally. It’s a little bit more humiliating to wear, but it’s easier for the digital effects guys. You can see who the priority is…” he jokingly added
