This is What the New Batcave Looks Like

One thing we haven’t seen much of in the trailers and teasers from Batman v Superman was the new Batcave.

We’ve seen glimpses of the set with the Batsuit and Robin suit, but that’s it thus far. Now Entertainment Weekly has put out new images of Bruce Wayne’s command center on the Wayne property. Here he is with Alfred, planning his attack on the Man of Steel.

"A man’s home is his castle, but Wayne Manor was never really Batman’s home. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the hero (Ben Affleck) has let his dynastic estate fall into dis­repair, watching it crumble to ruins as surely and completely as its owner’s sense of optimism. Rest assured, however, the Batcave remains as well-­equipped and well­-appointed as ever. After all, you want your tech to be up ­to ­date if you’re keeping the company of gods."

They speak to Affleck about how the famous Batman lore fits into the new DC cinematic universe.

"“[Batman] represents human beings, mortal men,” Affleck says. “In a world of Flashes and Aquamen and Supermen, there needs to be that guy. It’s interesting that
 he became the 
leader of the Justice League in the books — I’m not sure how that’ll play out here — but his humanity is also an asset.”"

Jeremy Irons plays Bruce’s confidant in this new version of DC canon and he spoke about his approach to the role.

"“Alfred is a lot more hands-­on in our film than he has previously been,” Irons says. “He’s a bit of a grease monkey, and he’s very involved in the decisions Bruce makes.”"

This is an interesting new approach to these characters that we really haven’t seen on screen before. Snyder seems to be moving away from the Gothic, romantic approach that’s been common since Tim Burton’s take in 1989. He treats Batman’s surroundings much more tactically than many incarnations, yet more ‘off-the-page’ than Christopher Nolan’s grounded approach.

His take on Alfred is also interesting, leaving out the technical side of the Batman’s maintenance usually occupied by Lucius Fox in the film versions or Harold for a period in the comics.

We’ll have to wait and see if this take rings true with fans. It could make or break the new movie interpretation of the Dark Knight and if it’s accepted as readily as Nolan’s.
