Batman V. Superman Rumor: Superman Will Have To Answer For Death And Destruction

Batman-News is reporting on a rumor hinting at a potentially important plot point for Superman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The report says that a scene was filmed in one of the large studios in Detroit that is meant to actually take place in Washington D.C. The site even spotted a number of police, emergency, and public transportation vehicles painted to look like they belong in Washington.

Potential SPOILERS to follow.

The report suggests that the destruction that took place in Metropolis during Man of Steel did not go unnoticed by the United States government, and that the U.S. is of the mind to place blame on Superman, since his presence on Earth is what attracted General Zod to the planet:

A major action scene was shot in July in one of the big studios in Detroit. Without giving too much away… it involves Superman and the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. (pictured above). Superman will have to answer for what happened at the end of Man of Steel. Half the public blames him for all the death and destruction. If it wasn’t for Superman being there, General Zod would have never come to Earth.

If this rumor is true, it’s an interesting way of echoing the common criticism from certain parties that Man of Steel featured too much wanton destruction.

Of course, if it was an action scene that was filmed, it's likely that somebody hasn't learned their lesson.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters March 25, 2016.
