One of the most discussed news items from last month's Comic-Con International was the first look at Wonder Woman as she will appear in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the new DC Entertainment film by Zack Snyder. Played by Gal Gadot, this will be the first cinematic appearance of William Moulton Marston's Amazonian princess and feminist icon in her nearly 75-year history, and naturally fans have had a lot to say about the portrait debuted in San Diego. In reaction to the image, members of the ComicsAlliance staff assembled to discuss and critique Gadot's costume, depictions of super-women on film, and the current state of superheroine fashion in general.
Today's participants include CA's superheroic sartorialist Betty Felon; clinical psychologist and Arkham Sessions co-host Dr. Andrea Letamendi; comic book editor Janelle Asselin; journalist Juliet Kahn; comics writer/artist Kate Leth; and blogger/vlogger Angelina L.B. aka ALB, who makes her CA debut in this in-depth analysis. Join us for our roundtable discussion on Wonder Woman's newest live-action steez, high heels, and the balance between practicality/realism and style in superheroine costume design.
Our sister site ScreenCrush is in Hall H right now for the Warner Bros. presentation of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. What's arguably the most anticipated element of the Zack Snyder film has nothing to do with either of titles characters. Nope, it's Wonder Woman, whose visage was finally revealed and captured for your enjoyment in the most sophisticated cell phone camera technology available. Feast your eyes on Gal Gadot as DC Comics' Amazon princess.
The cunning folks at DC Entertainment snuck an exclusive new image of Ben Affleck's Batman out into the world by hiding it in plain sight at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The DC booth features a montage of Batman images celebrating the Dark Knight's 75th anniversary -- and in among those images is a never-before-seen picture of Batfleck's impressive Bat chin in profile.
We already saw a fuzzy glimpse of Batfleck from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder earlier this year -- and we noticed at the time how very Frank Millery it looks. Earlier today we also gawked at Batfleck's cape and cowl on the convention floor -- and it was but a spectral apparition without a meaty Ben Affleck to fill it.
Superman has arrived in Gotham City -- that, or he's surveying the apocalyptic wasteland that is Metropolis in the wake of his terrible wrath in Man of Steel. Either of those scenarios may be reflected in a new promotional image released in support of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the new Zack Snyder film based on the DC Comics superheroes created by Bill Finger & Bob Kane and Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's teaser about the Batmobile that's going to be appearing in Man of Steel 2, AKA Batman Vs. Superman, AKA Justice League Prequel: Avengers Made A Billion Dollars So I Guess We're Doing That Now, director Zack Snyder has delivered on his promise by revealing not just more of the car, but, in a surprising twist, Batman himself, as played by Ben Affleck.
As for the Batmobile, well, we still don't get a very good look at it, but considering that Batman himself shows up, I think that's as fair a tradeoff as we can be expecting. And if you were worried that he might not be frowning enough, set your mind at ease. He definitely looks pretty upset for a dude standing next to a rocket car. Maybe he's bummed because everything is under an inch of soot?
Good news for those of you still looking forward to Man of Steel 2, AKA Superman vs. Batman vs. Wonder Woman vs. Cyborg vs. Green Lantern Maybe vs. Oh My God They Are Probably Going To Put Aquaman In A Movie: Justice League Begins! Visionary Director™ Zack Snyder took to Twitter today with an exciting look at one of the elements of the new film and revealed the brand new movie Batmobile!
Well, sort of. He revealed a wheeled, Batmobile-shaped object mostly hidden by a tarp, but hey, close enough. Check below for a larger look at the rear wheels, giant tailfins and potentially flaming exhaust of the sweet ride that Ben Affleck will be driving while quoting Frank Miller comics next Summer!
If you were thinking that Ben Affleck donning Batman's cape and cowl for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel meant he'd be doing a version of Christian Bale's famous Bat-growl from the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, think again.
Affleck told Playboy he's going to "redefine Batman in a way that doesn't compete" with Bale and Nolan's version of the character.
