Before Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder amazed audiences with his faithful adaptation of Watchmen in 2009. A new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set photo suggests that he may be looking to reteam with one of the Watchmen.

A Detroit native snapped the photo above, claiming that the painting is a prop from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Fans online think that the man in the painting looks like Jeffrey Dean Morgan aka The Comedian in Watchmen. This immediately sparked a new rumor — Jeffrey Dean Morgan is playing Thomas Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now let’s break it down…
- Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think that the man in the painting looks like Jeffrey Dean Morgan. What do you guys think?
- If that is supposed to be a painting of Thomas Wayne, this doesn’t guarantee a flashback scene. We may just see it hanging in Wayne Manor, and maybe Snyder asked his Watchmen pal to fill in as a little Easter Egg.
What do you all make of the photo above? Are we looking at Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
I also wanted to give a quick update on today’s car chase scene. Unfortunately the Batmobile did not make an appearance, even though Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne stunt double was spotted on set.
I’ll be posting a big “roundup” on Saturday when the scene is finished, but you didn’t miss anything too exciting today. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice photographer Clay Enos did post a cool photo of director Zack Snyder, however. I’m pretty sure everything in the background was added via Photoshop.
