Warner Bros. definitely has a more prolonged shooting schedule than Marvel’s films, though with only Man of Steel to show for their efforts, it remains to be seen if this works in their favor. The studio has lined up schedules for two of their next superhero films, with Wonder Woman heading into production later this year and Justice League following early next year.
While it’s not a new set of official stills from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the opposing duo appear on the cover of Empire magazine, giving us a fresh look at the heroes and their costumes from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown. As you might expect, Ben Affleck’s Batman looks quite grumpy, while Henry Cavill’s Superman looks positively optimistic and ready to save the world — or defend himself against it.
We’ve known for a little while now (according to reports, anyway) that we’ll see Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice via a Bruce Wayne flashback. As previously reported, and as teased via the trailers, we know that Robin is dead in the film — murdered by the Joker, who is apparently still taunting Batman about it. Now it seems we may know who will be playing Robin in the flashback.
Last week we got an extended sneak peek at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice via the Comic-Con trailer, but that won’t be the trailer you see in theaters — IMAX theaters, to be more specific. A new, alternate version of the trailer has dropped online, so if you don’t make it out to your local IMAX theater in the next couple of weeks, you can watch it right here.
The nice thing about missing Comic-Con is that studios are making it possible for you to enjoy (some of) the fun from the comfort of your home. If you aren’t in San Diego (or you couldn’t get into Hall H today), you can now watch the full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice panel online. Did you miss out on hearing Ben Affleck talk about the hilarious advice he received from previous Batman Christian Bale? Now you can hear it for yourself.
Prepare yourself: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic-Con trailer has arrived. This footage brought the house down at Hall H, where director Zack Snyder and his cast assembled to discuss the new film and shed additional light on this epic superhero throwdown. Does it live up to the hype? Watch it and discover for yourself!
One of the most interesting parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the introduction of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Before the hero gets her very own solo adventure, we’ll see her alongside Batman and Superman as they brood at each other and duke it out. But how big is Gadot’s part in the film, exactly? Director Zack Snyder is promising some big things.
We’re still a bit far out from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but with the film making an appearance at Comic-Con next week (where we’ll undoubtedly see some new footage), new details about the superhero showdown flick are trickling out. These plot details primarily deal with Ben Affleck’s brooding Batman and his moral dilemma regarding Superman.
The title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is so detailed that you almost don’t need an official synopsis of any kind. From that collection of words, you can easily extrapolate the following: the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel will fight each other, but it will ultimately lead to them teaming up and forming the Justice League. Anyway, the actual, official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s superhero throwdown has arrived and it confirms everything you expect it to confirm.
For better or worse, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel took more than a few pages from the Christopher Nolan school of superhero filmmaking, placing Superman and his foes in a bleak, gray world. The video above asks a very interesting question: What if he didn’t? What would Man of Steel (and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman) look like if Snyder let the natural colors of Superman’s costume and his world do what colors do best?
