UPDATE: BATMAN v SUPERMAN Set Photo & Video Hint At The Waynes Death Scene
Apparently Zack Snyder ("Man of Steel") and Warner Bros. don't trust audiences to remember Bruce Wayne's tragic backstory, as it seems we're getting another flashback scene of Bruce's parents being murdered. The good news? This time it will be faithful to the comic.
In the comics, Dr. Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha take their son Bruce to go see The Mark of Zorro. This is most likely a reference to the 1920 silent film starring Douglas Fairbanks and not the 1940 film of the same name that starred Tyrone Powers. After the film, the Wayne family exits the theater and are confronted by a petty mugger, who ends up murdering Bruce's parents right in front of him. This tragic event has been showed over and over again in the comics, television shows and movies. Each time it is told, there are slight variations on how it unfolded. Though, it appears based on a new set photo that Batman v Superman will be the first film to add the The Mark of Zorro reference. That's actually an important addition as Bruce's childhood hero was Zorro, and the character is loosely based on elements that can be found in The Mark of Zorro (1920), like a costume to hide his identity and using a cave as a secret hideout.
