New Details On BATMAN v SUPERMAN's Big "Dream Sequence" And Ben Affleck's Bat-Voice

We now know where exactly that Darkseid themed dream sequence in Batman v Superman is set, while new details have been revealed about Ben Affleck's Bat-voice, and much more.

There's been a lot of speculation about those desert set scenes we've seen in the trailers and TV spots for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the latest issue of Empire Magazine has now confirmed that it is indeed a dream sequence and not a flashforward to the Justice League movie of anything like that. Why exactly Bruce Wayne is having nightmares about Darkseid and his Parademons is hard to say (there's no mention of them in the magazine, but the villain's logo has obviously been spotted in a new still, while those winged creatures showed up in the latest trailer).

The magazine goes on to confirm that it takes place in the fictional nation of Kandahar, with "Batman...shouldering a machine gun, walks unbowed through the blizzard to greet an armoured juggernaut pulling up in a desert compound that's walled with rusty containers." They also describe the entire sequence as "pure Mad Max", but don't shed any light on what Darkseid might have to do with it or why Bruce might be having premonitions of his impending arrival on Earth. 

More interesting Batman related reveals to come from the magazine include executive producer Deborah Snyder confirming that, "Batman's voice is digitally altered by the cowl." That's pretty much what we all suspected after that recent TV spot, and this is a surprising direction to take things in after the way previous Batman movies have handled the voice situation (it's also pretty close to what Oliver Queen does in Arrow, oddly enough). Anyway, it's also mentioned that the Caped Crusader's foes are locked up in Arkham Asylum and that Jeremy Irons' Alfred Pennyworth is a butler "when required", but will actually be a lot more "hands-on" in this movie. He also has a special-ops background. 

So, some interesting stuff here, but for more, be sure to pick up the latest issue of Empire!

I'm ok with the Bat-Voice.

Anything is better than the "Bale"-voice.

@MonsterSquad35 - Crazy how we have fully accepted Affleck as Batman enough to distinguish between "Bat-voice" and "Bale-voice"

@aXe - i share your feelings. this website sucks right now.

@aXe - That actually happened to me a lot in the old version of the site. I guess it's the way CBM does its comment system. I don't know why they don't simply use Disqus. It seems to be a stabler system.

@DerekLake - It happened on the old site too? I never had a report of it... I don't know if that makes me feel better or worse :o|

Quick question - When it happens, do you have multiple tabs with different CBM articles open?

@NateBest - Yes. Usually happens after having multiple tabs open and then closing one.

My biggest problem is the show more button on the main page not working on chrome or it minimizing back up after scrolling; old problem that is now worse.

"Batman...shouldering a machine gun, walks unbowed through the blizzard to greet an armoured juggernaut pulling up in a desert compound that's walled with rusty containers."

I think this Bats entering a 'Batman militia' compound... then Superman's soldiers and Parademons attack the compound.

@HubbleFunk - I'm interested in the "armoured juggernaut" part.

@DerekLake - Perhaps that armoured juggernaut looks something like this:

Not to be negative but im getting worried, this movie its starting to look like avengers age of ultron (which is a setup movie for another film instead of a movie on its own )
Hope not

@pollo - I think the film is probably going to be 2/3 Batman v Superman, and 1/3 Dawn of Justice. But here, the Batman/Superman part bleeds into the Dawn of Justice part through Lex Luthor's involvement in both. So consider it like this: Lex's manipulation of Batman and Superman is part of a larger plan that leads into both Justice League and -- somehow -- Darkseid.

Age of Ultron was a bit different because the set ups for Civil War, Black Panther and Ragnarok derailed the central Ultron plot (which wasn't all that good). The JL/Darkseid part doesn't seem to derail the BvS plot here, but actually complements it. As far as I can tell. It will ultimately depend on the editing.

@pollo - Ultron could have been great...

But it wasn't.

Syner is aware I'm certain.

It's safe to say those creatures are really parademons, then. Neat!!

Think we all figured the voice was digitally altered from the clips. The dream sequences sound interesting.

Ben Afflecks Batman keeps dwarfing his predecessors by the second and will hammer the final nail in the coffin of every other actors portrayal of batman when BvS drops.What gets me is the growing resemblance to the comics batman the more we learn about his character.I never doubted Zachary Snyder or David Ayer.2016 is beginning to look like the best year in my life so far.Now if only I could get a promotion at my place of work......
