Yes, on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a 15 foot statue of Superman is erected in front of a government building. ‘What could i possibly mean?’ The Internet scratches its’ collective head. Well, the obvious has finally been revealed.
The statue was built to celebrate Superman saving the Earth in the first movie — Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice takes place about two years after the events of Man of Steel. Gotham and Metropolis news trucks and helicopters were on the scene to cover the Mayor’s speech and the statue unveiling. Elementary school kids wore “Superman Survivors” shirts and helped pull a sheet off the statue for the big reveal. They also released real doves to celebrate statue unveiling. The Superman statue that we saw last week was incomplete — he was missing a head and other various body parts. That didn’t change when they filmed the scene for the movie. I’m told that the statue will be completed in post-production with CGI.
Yep, it’s exactly what we thought. Technically, this is a spoiler, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Stay tuned for all your Batman v Superman needs, Bat-fans!
