One of the stipulations when Ben Affleck signed on to star in Batman vs. Superman was that his Argo writer, Chris Terrio, would come aboard to help fix the script. Though Terrio was indeed brought in to rewrite the script (originally written by David Goyer), it seems Affleck still was not happy with it. According to a recent report, Affleck spent each day rewriting that day’s scenes until they were up to snuff. Oh, and he did it dressed as Batman.

Like single-cell organisms slowly complexifying and dragging themselves out of the primordial soup that was early Earth, details on the hotly-anticipated upcoming Justice League movie have begun to collect. Some specifics of the film were self-evidently obvious from the start — there will be a league, they will spread justice, the usual cast of characters including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) will appear — and some were revealed right out the gate, such as that the Justice League project will screen in two separate parts, both of which will be directed by Zack Snyder. Now, Warner Bros. has set progress on their hopeful Avengers competitor in motion. An exclusive over at Entertainment Weekly breathlessly relates that Justice League will commence principal photography on April 11.

While much of Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent’s origins remain faithful to well-known iterations of the characters, at least one person’s backstory in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is getting a makeover. Zack Snyder has given Batman / Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler Alfred a bit of a promotion, upgrading him from devoted servant and caretaker to former British Special Air Service officer with expertise in weapons, vehicles and various other useful skills.

Zack Snyder recently revealed that he sought and received Christopher Nolan’s blessing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (though it really sounded like Nolan just didn’t care), but he wasn’t the only one looking for approval for the upcoming superhero epic. Ben Affleck says that he also went to his Batman predecessors — not for their blessing, but for some helpful Bat-tips.

There are three sides to every fight, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice there are only two sides: Justice, and…justice. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel simply cannot agree on how to properly deliver said justice. It’s all a matter of perspective, you know? If that’s not clear enough, these new posters for the upcoming superhero showdown illustrate the concept of perspective, showing you the two sides of this fight.

Does Bruce Wayne know any other emotions besides brooding, or any other facial expressions besides “righteous scowl”? This is perhaps one of the greatest unanswered questions of the modern, grittier era of Batman. And judging by this new photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the answer appears to be: nope.

Judging by images alone, you would think that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is actually just a clothing catalogue for privileged vigilantes and alien superheroes. There’s so much pensive staring and gloomy brooding and handsome, chiseled faces in nice jackets and expensive button-ups. All that’s missing is a caption with a price tag and one-click ordering.
