Anti-Superman Protests On “Dawn” Set

A couple of new photos from the Detroit set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” have gone online through the Twittter account of Tim Reinman which reveals an angry mob if displaced Metropolis residents who aren’t quite happy with Superman, to the point they even set a dummy likeness of him on fire. This adds credence to reports that in the film, much of the world is angry over the mass destruction of Metropolis during “Man of Steel”.

Meanwhile, Ben Affleck has offered some more quotes about the film during promotional rounds for David Fincher’s “Gone Girl”. Affleck was asked by Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today about the negativity over his casting last year. He responded:

“We have these cultural stories that people have attachments to, they care very much about. Fans get imaginative, they write fan-fiction, and they get really into it. They’re certainly entitled to those feelings, but what’s been interesting for me is this is the movie, more than any other movie combined, people come up to me and they’re really excited. You have all of this attention – some of it’s positive, some of it’s negative. I think, in the end, you make the movie and it either works or it doesn’t.”

He adds that director Zack Snyder and writer Chris Terrio have “really conceived it in a new and interesting way”.
