Batman v Superman will include Bruce Waynes parents murder

Eyewitness reports have revealed some new plot details from Batman v Superman , namely that the new film will recreate the famous scene in which Thomas and Martha Wayne are shot dead.

Zack Snyder has apparently drawn heavily from the Frank Miller comic-book The Dark Knight Returns , in which the Waynes are murdered after a visit to the cinema to watch Zorro , a known inspiration for the character.

It also seems that Snyder filmed the entire sequence using IMAX cameras, which suggests the technology will be used liberally throughout the production.

Whether we need to see the Waynes meet a sticky end yet again is certainly up for debate, but it’s clearly something that Ben Affleck’s older version of the character is still struggling to process…

Directed by Snyder and co-starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Jesse Eisenberg, Batman v Superman will open in the UK on 25 March 2016.
