Scholastic’s “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” companion novels are the gift that keeps on giving. After a new photos and information surfaced yesterday thanks to the novels, new scanned photos and inside information from the companion books have become available via Heroic Hollywood.
A pair of the pages focus on the new Batcave featured in the Zack Snyder film. The pages confirm that the film’s Batcave exists underneath a lake, and they also establish that there’s a landing pad for the Batwing.
An elevator in Bruce’s glass house takes him down to the place where he stores all of his secrets: the Batcave! Bruce and Alfred have turned one of the old caves beneath the manor grounds into a secret headquarters. The rough stone ceiling hangs overhead and, since part of the cave is under the lake, water rushes down the stone wall and pools on the ground below. Suspended int he middle of the cave, in a series of rooms built from glass walls and giant beams, is everything Batman needs to fight crime.
On the lowest level of the Batcave is the garage. A driveway leads to a secret exit for ground vehicles like the Batmobile. A landing pad is set up beneath a large opening in the Batcave’s ceiling, so Batman’s aerial vehicles like the Batwing can take off and land. And a special computer console allows Bruce and Alfred to examine the Batcave vehicles, so they can be easily fixed and upgraded.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and more, “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens on March 25, 2016.
