Ben Afflecks stand-in is spotted rehearsing a scene where Bruce Wayne must act fast on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman.

As production continues on director Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Detroit, a new set video has surfaced showing off some of Bruce Wayne's everyday heroics. Warning, there will be some Major Spoilers in the following video and story.

While the video doesn't feature Ben Affleck himself as Bruce Wayne (though unconfirmed reports claim that is him in the first run-through), we do get to see his stand-in rehearsing a scene where he saves a young girl. This scene is reportedly set inside Metropolis, not Bruce's hometown of Gotham, according to a report from Twitter and YouTube user Samuel Otten. While Bruce is seen here at the demolished Wayne Financial building featured in previous set photos, it has not been confirmed if this is new city damage, or if this is the aftermath of Man of Steel's climactic end battle which found Zod and Kal-El wiping out most of Metropolis.

Take a look at the video, along with Samuel Otten's description of what he saw on set, then continue on for a slew of new images shooting continues.

"Several Bruce Wayne stand-in's and stunt doubles were on set today. You can see them blocking out a scene involving the rescue of a small girl and the collapsing of a large piece of the Wayne Financial building. Based on city buses and police cars, this is presumed to be in Metropolis, not Gotham. I don't know that any of these are Ben Affleck himself, but you can be the judge. At the very least, it's definitely Bruce Wayne. I think Affleck may have come on later, after I had to leave.

If you have a sharp eye, you can also catch Zack Snyder in a dark gray t-shirt around 2:42 and elsewhere, such as running toward camera at the very end."

In addition, a number of other photos were taken from the set by Samuel Otten and BananaDoc, which you can see here:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    @superman81 I agree. I think the move was essentially to get a jump on the competition and it will bring in unprecedented numbers before the summer hits. It's less a sacrifice than going head to head with Marvel and Captain America 3. While I think CA3 is going to be hot, it's not going to hold up to Dawn of Justice in the long run regardless of its release date. I have a feeling Shazam may be released in 2016 before Justice League the following year for a surprise introduction at some point in Justice League. You may be right though. The rest of it, I see you being spot on.

    @mieko-siede Yea I am not sure about moving to March other than to get maybe some Avatar-Titanic legs before Summer movies hit. I do not think moving was anything to do with Marvel but lets be honest it would have taken a hit in the pocket book had Marvel stuck with the date. I think April would have been a better move like CA:WS did but I am happy its opening sooner. I think we will see Shazam and Justice League in 2017 with MOS2 in 2018.

    @superman81 Yeah, I saw it on Screen Rant with several other DC titles to follow into the year 2020. Looks like they will be releasing two movies a year. Right now, Dawn of Justice is getting all the press which is all the better leaving the other titles as a surprise. I look forward to the development of the DCU.

    @renodc Yea there are rumors that he will "exile" himself. I wonder if that is the case then a huge threat will call for him to come back. Hopefully we will know more soon

    @superman81 The comics have always characterized Batman as having this underlying level of distrust for Superman because he's so powerful, which is why Lex Luthor isn't the only person that maintains a stash of Kryptonite.

    @superman81 I remember reading back when Bryan Singer was working on the story for Superman Returns that the original idea was to have the film pick up after Superman 2 with Superman leaving Earth because people, after seeing the power and devastation created in the battle with Zod, began to fear the potential that Superman could at any time if he wanted take over the world. I loved that idea and hated that Singer ditched it, but maybe and hopefully Snyder is going to explore that concept in B v S.

    I have read that there are extras on set with Anti-Superman protest banners. Superman will not be the public favorite here.

    @themoviefanatic Though I haven't mentioned much about it, I do have to concur about, Age of Ultron. I do believe that is going to up the stakes for Marvel in a way that will exceed The Winter Soldier and bring a little grit to the Marvel Universe.

    @mieko-siede I agree. That's exactly how I feel about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    It's incredible how detailed these movies are of recent years coming from DC. Man of Steel, for better or worse, was of the most gorgeously and intricately detailed movies for the genre. And for what we are seeing now, it is amazing how detailed this production is from set to costume to prop. This is going to be something to behold.
