Is the backstory of a character who has been relaunched several times on the big screen and in comics needed? Yes.
This news from Badass Digest still falls in the rumor category. Despite what the movie title might lead you to believe it seems Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent have not become lawyers. As an expert on Superman/Batman news with my prediction of what Bruce Wayne would look like before leaked pictures made their way out, I'm not ready to put my full backing behind this yet, but it sounds good:
My sources indicate that when BvS opens Batman has existed for close to thirty years, which would place Wayne in his 50s (which is why I expected more grey in Affleck’s hair). In this version Batman is still an urban legend, a creature of the night, and no one has ever taken his picture. But he’s had plenty of adventures, and the Batcave includes a memorial centered around a tattered Robin costume.
"Old Batman" certainly fits with the feel of the Frank Miller Dark Knight elements we've seen so far, and dead Robin (the best kind of Robin) also fits with the sad Batman we see above.
The also touch on Wonder Woman:
Her activities have been just as secretive as Batman’s. Her activities were badass as well… but in a very different, and unexpected, way.
This all does sound pretty "badass" (Nice move Badass Digest, I guess we should have picked a cooler name than Outhouse). We will eventually confirm this news for you, check back the day after the movie releases.
