A new action figure may have revealed key details about the Desert Batman scene from the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.
A new image from ComicBook.com, taken at the New York Comic Con, may give us an indication that the intriguing “desert batman” scene from the Batman V Superman trailer could be from a dream..
or, more fittingly, a k-nightmare!:
The name “Knightmare Batman” may link to the idea, of which many have been speculating since the trailer dropped, that the footage from the desert could be that of a dream in which Bruce‘s subconscious manifests the ultimate “Doomsday” scenario where the Man of Steel rules all. The soldiers wearing the Superman patch are his enforcers, and the scene where they bow down to him to show their allegiance.. It all seems a little unlike the Kal-El we know.
We know this is an older Batman, a weary Batman, and we can also draw from Frank Miller‘s The Dark Knight Returns, one of director Zack Snyder‘s biggest inspirations for making the film, that he will have nightmares and visions to do with his past and how the fear of that past ultimately affects how he acts in the present. Particularly how a certain god-like alien may threaten the “entire human race“.
What do you make of this new theory?
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for a March 25th, 2016 release date.
