After the big rumor about Warner Bros’ 7-film DC movie plan broke this morning, a leaked photo from the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice may not be too exciting. But hey, news about this film has been so cryptic and secretive thus far that we’ll take any updates we can get!
Last week we heard that some scenes would be shot at LexCorp on June 12th and 13th, meaning we may soon see some more leaked set photos find their way onto the internet and spread like wildfire. We saw photos of what looked like an under-construction giant Superman statue a few days ago, and now have our first real glimpse at the LexCorp building, which will apparently be full of hipsters.
Honestly, there’s not much information to be gleaned from a photo like this. I must say though that the building looks a bit lacklustre compared to the LexCorp skyscraper that made a brief appearance during Superman’s giant battle with Zod over the skies of Metropolis in Man of Steel. Chances are this is not the company’s headquarters though, and is perhaps just one of several other buildings that make up Lex Luthor’s vast empire.
As I said, filming at this new site is expected to begin soon, so keep an eye out for some blurry shots of (a hopefully bald) Jesse Eisenberg that may surface over the weekend.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives on May 6th, 2016. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg/Vincent Stone. Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons plays Alfred, and Man of Steel co-stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne return as Lois Lane, Martha Kent, and Perry White, respectively.
