HistoryEditDuring the first portion of the climactic duel of the Battle of Metropolis between General Zod and Superman, the former sends Superman flying backwards, right through a half-destroyed building, and into the Wayne Financial Building. Zod follows and manages to suddenly activate his heat vision, taking away an entire floor of the building, sending it collapsing on Superman, who manages to escape the falling building just in time.
A horrified Bruce Wayne witnessed this particular portion of the aliens' battle from a nearby street, desperately urging his employees to evacuate the building (via mobile phone), just as he saw the beams of Zod's heat vision cutting through an upper floor's walls. Bruce was too late, however, as the building had already begun collapsing, but he fearlessly ran right into the falling debris, desperate to save someone.
- A poster titled "Keep Calm and Call Batman" appears within the building as an Easter Egg in Man of Steel, possibly as a clue to indicate that the building itself belonged to Batman.
