‘Batman V Superman’ VFX Reel By Scanline Shows What Was Real, What Wasn’t

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was one of the most talked about movies this year. Whether you like it or not is completely left up to your discretion, but one cannot deny that it was successful (on a level at least). The film ended up grossing $873 million worldwide and is the 6th highest of the year.

Director Zack Snyder is well known for his use of CGI in his films (or overuse, you could say). This has been seen all throughout his career starting with 300, a film entirely shot within the walls of a studio in Hollywood. Over the years, visual effects have become a big part of films. Of course, a modern big budget blockbuster like Batman v Superman would be choke full of computer wizardry.

Scanline VFX has released a VFX reel detailing their work on the film. The visual effects company has worked on tons of other big Hollywood projects like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3 and Game of Thrones. A lot of cool shots which one would think were real were created entirely using CG. These include multiple shots of the Batmobile, the Batplane and the cityscape.

Watch the entire VFX breakdown here :

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill , Ben Affleck , Amy Adams , Jeremy Irons , Diane Lane , Gal Gadot , Lawrence Fishburne , and Jessie Eisenberg. 

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
