Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Wraps Filming a Year and a Half Ahead of Release
Batman doesn't come out for another year and a half, but it's already finished principal photography, according to an Instagram post from cinematographer Larry Fong:

The short video is captioned, "That's a wrap," with some black material being covered in snow. It's impossible to tell from this footage alone, but it could be part of Ben Affleck's batsuit because, let's face it, this may technically be Superman's franchise but Batman is getting all the hype.
The release date has been changed twice, first delayed for a year and then moved up a few months in order to avoid a stand-off with Marvel's Captain America 3. This early wrap will likely mean lots of special effects, as well as a veritable deluge of marketing. We should all get ready for them to invent teasers for trailer teasers next.
Batman v Superman stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Laurence Fishburne Jena Malone, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
