See Bruce Wayne In 'Batman v Superman' Sneak Peak

Originally announced at last year's Comic-Con San Diego, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an upcoming film centered around the DC Universe. While director Zack Snyder has kept the film under close wraps, a behind-the-scenes clip was recently uploaded to YouTube. This clip reveals some of the first images of Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman.

The 4-minute-long clip was reportedly shot in Corktown, Detroit on August 5, 2014. Please note, it may reveal some spoilers, so watch it at your own discretion.

VIDEO SPOILERS: Behind the scenes of Batman vs Superman, Bruce Wayne, Metropolis set

During the clip, we see a man whom we presume is Bruce Wayne run and grab a young girl, carrying her away to safety before a pile of debris collapses nearby. Here's the kicker, though: the man doesn't exactly look like Ben Affleck. Sure, the man shares a similar build and body type, but it's clearly not Ben Affleck being filmed. So, who is this mysterious man in the behind-the-scenes shot of Batman v Superman?

There are a few different possibilities, one of which is that it's an entirely new character. Heck, it could be some alter-ego of Batman for all we know. Zack Snyder is a brilliant director, and it's safe to assume he's going to throw us some curve balls in the film. Another possibility (which is more likely) is that it's a stunt double. Given the fact that this scene involves falling debris, director Zack Snyer may have opted to use a stunt double instead of risking injury to Affleck.

"Several Bruce Wayne stand-in's and stunt doubles were on set today. You can see them blocking out a scene involving the rescue of a small girl and the collapsing of a large piece of the Wayne Financial building. Based on city buses and police cars, this is presumed to be in Metropolis, not Gotham. I don't know that any of these are Ben Affleck himself, but you can be the judge. Probably him in the first sequence, but definitely not the later ones. At the very least, it's Bruce Wayne," wrote YouTube user Samuel Otten, who uploaded the clip.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for U.S. release on March 25, 2016.
