Ben Affleck: Superman was responsible for Wayne Enterprises employee deaths in ‘Man of Steel’

Man of Steel’s ending was somewhat controversial with critics and fans pointing out that Superman and General Zod killed a lot of people during their battle through Metropolis. In fact, director Zack Snyder confirmed that about 5,000 people probably died that day.

In an extended online interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ben Affleck talks about how Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will focus on the Man of Steel ending, and even reveals the real reason why Batman may have a problem with Superman.

“One of the things I liked was Zack’s idea of showing accountability and the consequences of violence and seeing that there are real people in those buildings,” says Affleck. “And in fact, one of those buildings was Bruce Wayne’s building so he knew people who died in that Black Zero event.”

It’s all starting to come together! The fact that Superman’s actions resulted in dead Wayne Enterprises employees will likely make this fight very personal for Batman.
