'Batman v. Superman' Shooting Some Sequences on IMAX Cameras?

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

We recently just got word that just one sequence in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shot using IMAX cameras, and it turns out another big blockbuster might be using the giant film stock under the radar as well. SlashFilm noticed a tweet from Mike Eisenberg, a Chicago man who owns and operates his own production company, saying, "I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman vs Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras." Now the internet is full of lies, but this seems to be a legitimate observation on the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as Before the Trailer corroborated the claim and Batman News also said the same. So just what were they shooting in Chicago?

This particular sequence in question was reportedly the iconic comic book scene where Bruce Wayne's parents are killed. So it sounds like we'll get a little bit of origin backstory on Ben Affleck's Batman, even though pretty much everyone familiar with Batman knows that his parents were killed when he was a child. Maybe this particular flashback has a detail integral to the story. Could there be more sequences shot on IMAX that we don't know about? More than likely yes, but we probably won't know until the film is closer to hitting theaters, so consider this a rumor for now.

UPDATE: SlashFilm has learned from an IMAX spokesperson that IMAX cameras are indeed being used for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it was not clarified as to the extent of which these cameras are being used. That's something we'll like learn in the months leading up to the film hitting theaters in March of 2016.

Sounds good to me. This is as "big damn movie" as big damn movies go...might as well film on the format that delivers the most spectacle.

Yeah, it seems like it has become de rigeur for any blockbuster to have some IMAX footage.

Hurrah? More origin story for Batman...

The one reservation I had about this whole 'Batman debuting in a BvS movie' was that, in the context of the DC Saga...Batman received no proper origin or introduction. I didn't want him to kind of go the way of Hulk in the MCU, where the official 'huge shared universe' doesn't have any proper time devoted to Batman's back-story. So I'm quite relieved that, to an extent, we'll see his origin explored in THIS film. Because while we are dealing with an experienced Batman, in the context of this new DC Saga, this is Batman's debut film..and so he needs to be properly introduced like any other 'new' character would be. For many younger viewers, this could easily be their first Batman movie...and while Batman is well known, his origins aren't simply universally known by every member of the I think it is important to give him a proper introduction and set up.
