Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the 2016 superhero feature film that marks the first live action pairing of Superman and Batman. Henry Cavill returns as Clark Kent/Superman from Man of Steel and Ben Affleck makes his debut as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film was directed by Zack Snyder and also is part of the Worlds of DC, which includes Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman (2017).

NOTE: Some of the screencaps are from the Ultimate Edition, which adds an additional 30-minutes of previously-cut footage to the film.

The following weapons were used in the film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:




Colt M1911A1

In the film's opening scene, Joe Chill uses a Colt M1911A1 to threaten and then shoot both Thomas Wayne (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Martha Wayne (Lauren Cohan).

Another closeup of the M1911A1 shows "Colt" engraved on the slide.

Browning Hi-Power

General Amajagh (Sammi Rotibi) takes a Browning Hi-Power from one of his subordinates during a confrontation with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Jimmy Olsen (Michael Cassidy). He later uses it to threaten Lois before she is rescued by Superman (Henry Cavill).

Classic Commercial Browning Hi-Power (Belgian Mfg) - 9x19mm.

Heckler & Koch USP45

LexCorp security contractors carry the Heckler & Koch USP45 as a sidearm. Anatoli Knyazev (Callan Mulvey) uses a USP45 to kill several of General Amajagh's militants in Nairomi. Some of his henchmen also use USP45s during the warehouse fight with Batman.

SIG-Sauer P226R

A Gotham City police officer is seen with a SIG-Sauer P226R while searching an abandoned house. A few resistance fighters use the P226R in the Knightmare, most notably the one who betrays Batman to Superman. During the warehouse fight, one of Anatoli Knyazev's henchmen tries to kill Batman (Ben Affleck) with a P226R.

A henchman shoots Batman point-blank in the head with his P226R, which proves ineffective due to the armored helmet underneath his cowl. Note that the muzzle flash appears to CGI, as using a blank cartridge in this manner, even with some form of headgear, would be dangerous under most circumstances.

Colt MK IV Series 80

In the Knightmare, Batman's sidearm is a Colt MK IV Series 80 with faux ivory grips. He uses it to kill a resistance fighter who betrays him and several of Superman's soldiers in the ensuing fight.

A black stand-alone FN MK 13 grenade launcher is used by Batman to fire grenades, smoke rounds, or, as is seen in the film, Kryptonite rounds, which he fires at Superman and Doomsday. For no discernible reason, the MK 13 has two GG&G Harris Bipod Adapters mounted on the left-hand side rail, seemingly for sling points. According to prop master Douglas Harlocker, the MK 13 was used because it has a "Batman-ish" feel, being "complicated. but not over-complicated" and "the scale was really good for [Batman]," plus he'd never seen it in a movie before (guess he doesn't visit IMFDB; it was in Transformers: Dark of the Moon). Harlocker also claims that, after Zack Snyder approved the MK 13, it was painted and had its stock apparently modified, despite the fact that the stock actually appears to be... stock.

CTS Model 7290M Mini Bang

A CTS Model 7290M Mini Bang, modified (apparently) by Independent Studio Services to be the fictional EFS Model 6500G (presumably for legal reasons), is used in the film. Notably, the new address on the prop is ISS's actual address and the U.S. patent number actually corresponds with a patent for a "pumping assembly for well fluids" filled in 1955.
