Will a Retired Bruce Wayne Use Drones to Fight Crime in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’?

Warner Bros. and Relativity Producer Daniel Alter confirms Batman and Robin’s strained relationship. Is he merely having fun with fans?


What's a day without some wild Batman Vs. Superman rumor? Jumping on the bandwagon this afternoon is Warner Bros. and Relativity producer Daniel Alter, who is behind the upcoming projects Kane & Lynch and Agent 47. He doesn't seem to be connected to the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up in any way, but that hasn't stopped him from teasing some new story details.

He confirms Nightwing (aka Robin) and his estrangement from Batman, while adding in a new development regarding a retired Bruce Wayne (played, as we all know, by the controversial Ben Affleck) and his use of Bat Drones to fight crime from the comfort of his barcalounger.

Now, is he just stirring the pot, hoping to see his false story details in a headline? (He succeeded!) Or does Daniel Alter actually have Intel on the screenplay for Batman Vs. Superman? It's hard to tell, because Batman using Drones isn't some wild, from left field theory. It actually sounds right on the money. Seriously, why wouldn't a crime fighting millionaire vigilante use Drones to take out the bad guys in this era? He doesn't even need to be retired to do that. And we have the tag at the end of Man of Steel, which sees Superman (Henry Cavill) taking down a Drone. Is this how the two heroes meet? Superman knocks out one of Batman's Drones, stopping a potential crime from taking place that has serious repercussions?

Who knows?

Daniel Alter then made another tweet, this time about Star Wars: Episode VII.

Is there Star Wars: Episode VII casting news about to drop? Or is he being sarcastic about the current rumor epidemic that plagues us? We have no idea. Right now, it just seems he's trying to kick up dust. We'll let you know when and if anything breaks. And we'll certainly keep the rumor train rolling as long as you decide you want to click on these stories. (Hey, it's all just part of the interactive entertainment experience!)

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.

    @masterofthemoon I wouldn't say it's unbelievable. Bruce Wayne is a billionaire as well and think of the endless gadgets he uses. A drone isn't too far fetched

    I don't credit this man one bit. A semi-retired Batman? I want to see Batman and Superman go at it in their prime. The rumors about Robin don't really bother me. I think it'll be cool to see the dynamic duo.

    If this is the case they should have just tied both the dark knight trilogy and man of steel together and did everything they could to sign both christen bale and josh Gordon Levitt.

    Last time I checked Bruce Wayne is not Tony Stark and developed weapons for the Government! I don't believe this so called "stoty detail" leak one bit! I will only believe any plot details when they come out of Zach Snyder's mouth.

    @dfella Batman is actually a little older than Superman. Although the character was introduced after Superman, later lore suggested that he was in costume before Superman ever made an appearance. It was how he gathered intel on him by watching from afar. He'd already been seasoned and paranoid of what someone like Superman could do. To make him semi-retired would be ridiculous. I could see at the cusp of his prime but not over the hill. It would skew everything they are trying accomplish with this. I highly doubt that they'd even go as far as the drones or making him as old as these "rumors" suggest. At the moment, that's all these are, rumors left out there to stir the pot. The story with Bale is over. It was a separate entity from what they are trying to do. It wouldn't even fit the arc they are working around. And it would contradict anything that was in the Dark Knight trilogy. Be patient, you'll see that most of this is just to rattle your cage until we get real information.

    Reminds me a bit of the relationship between Iron Man and Captain America in Civil War.

    A Batman that fights with Drones isn't worth watching. This is too top heavy and over bloated with Superhero's - put one more superhero in it and I won't watch it.

    @ObiWanShinobi even a new and fresh Batman doesn't stand a chance unless he cheats his way into the fight. This is where they might introduce kryptonite.
