This is pretty big news. Up to now it’s been assumed that it would be completely shot on 35mm film. While some of it still will be, there also will be some IMAX scenes included. IMAX was a crucial part in conveying the big scope of the last Batman franchise, and it’s nice to see its been included here too.
Batman-News also got some inside information on the details of the scene. “A source also told me that Martha Wayne’s pearls will be done in CGI, presumably as they fall from her neck and bounce on the ground after she gets shot,” the report said. A similar technique has been taken before, most recently in Gotham.
Batman v Superman will be released on March 25, 2016.
