A couple of days ago saw word hit about a potential scene for Batman Vs. Superman involving an altercation to be filmed at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing, Michigan between Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor.

Now thanks to Twitter users we have a batch of images of the cast arriving for the shoot as well as further details.

It's said that the scene is actually Lex Luthor hosting a Red Carpet charity event for the reopening of the Metropolis Public Library, which was destroyed in Man of Steel.

Present at the party: Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor; Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne; Gal Gadot as Diana (Wonder Woman); Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Henry Cavill as Clark Kent reporting for the Daily Planet; Holly Hunter (rumored to play a U.S. Senator); Tao Okamoto (said to be a new character for the film, but thought to possibly be Mercy Graves, who in the comics is Lex Luthor's bodyguard and an Amazon); real-life Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow is rumored to be playing an extra as well. Lots of extras were also spotted on set for the big event in the movie filling various roles such as waiters, waitresses, drink servers and party goers.

Apparently what goes down is that Lois and Clark are covering the Metropolis Public Library grand opening for the Daily Planet where they ask the Red Carpet guests their thoughts on Superman. It's also said that Lex Luthor funded the construction for the reopening of the library because "intellect is man’s biggest strength," which is an obviously a play on Lex not liking Superman in the movie (via Latino Review).

No new details have arisen regarding the altercation between Bruce Wayne and Ben Affleck, but it was previously said the military is involved as well as heavy special effects.

Images also include a new look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, where long curly hair can be seen. It's unknown if that is a wig Eisenberg is wearing to throw fans off the thought that Luthor might actually be bald as is in the comic books.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
