It now appears we know the reason that Zack Snyder has been erecting barricades to keep prying eyes away from scenes filming at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing, Michigan for Batman Vs. Superman.

A tipster has informed Michigan's WILX News 10 that the scene will involve an altercation between Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor.

It's stated there will be a physical altercation between the two at a big party set in downtown Metropolis that is going to be filmed at the museum.

The news report notes that a red carpet has been set up, which will feature a paparazzi atmosphere for the scene. 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17586:]]Metropolis news trucks can also be seen on set as they are there to "cover" the big happening as well.

The scene is also said to feature "heavy special effects" in addition to a military presence as a result of the Bruce Wayne vs. Lex Luthor altercation, which is speculated to explain why there is a casting call this weekend for people with military experience.

The news report is also stating the character of Robin as currently in the script is female.


Earlier saw actress Jena Malone reveal a new red hair do, with many thinking she may be playing the female Robin, though it is not yet confirmed that Malone is Robin. In Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns comic storyline, Robin is teenage Carrie Kelley.

Obviously, whatever altercation between Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor occurs will most likely involve other -  possibly super powered individuals - as special effects and the military are mentioned.  Ben Affleck stands at a towering 6'4" with Jesse Eisenberg listed at about 5'7".

"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.
