But Why, Though? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Rumored to Flashback to Wayne Murders


BatmanCrimeAlleyGuys. Hey, guys. Did you know Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered?

Batman’s parents are dead.

I had trouble picking an image for this post. Why? Because there are 10 billion incarnations of the Wayne murders. TEN BILLION. Ok, maybe not quite that many but there’s been a lot, so many it’s one of those things in the public consciousness. If not, everyone was just reminded in the premiere of Fox’s Gotham television series. But mostly, why would a filmmaker waste precious screen time on something like this? found some photos which suggest Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman will be giving Ben Affleck his own tragic flashback and that perhaps this time, it might stick closer to the comic book version of events.

Chicago is Gotham again! “Batman vs Superman” is filming the Wayne’s murder here in Uptown tonight.
