Recently, John assisted Stephen Berkman in shooting a wet plate image for the 2016 American superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring the DC Comics characters Batman and Superman. John was assisted by Arat (Huge) Komsawadichai during the shoot.
Directed by Zack Snyder and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film is a follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel and is the second installment in the DC Extended Universe. The cast includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the first live-action film to feature Batman and Superman together, as well as the first live-action cinematic portrayal of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. In the film, criminal mastermind Lex Luthor manipulates Batman into a preemptive battle with Superman, whom Luthor is obsessed with defeating.
John, Stephen and Arat shot the plate at Warner Brothers Studios at Leavesden near Watford over the course of a week. The plate was used in the film as well as the book (pictured below).
