Following the Batman vs. Superman info dump that came out of Comic-Con, we thought it might be a while before we saw or heard anything from the upcoming superhero movie. After all, we did get an extended new trailer, new images and a new poster. But today, we have three new Batman vs. Superman pics each showing off one of the film’s three main characters: Batman, Superman and Lex Luthor.
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.
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.
If you’re the kind of nerd that crawled through the new Batman vs. Superman trailer frame-by-frame...welcome to the club. However, in your attempt to figure out how everything in this massive trailer could possibly fit into one movie, you probably noted one scene that stood out from the rest. At some point, Batman finds himself in the desert, wearing desert Batman gear and getting into a brawl with soldiers wearing the Superman “S”. Now, a new photo has arrived online to give us a new glimpse at the Dark Knight in this alternate get-up.
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.
After the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, where the new trailer was unveiled, fans at the DC Comics booth were treated to a special appearance from the cast and director from the upcoming Warner Bros. tentpole film.
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!
Well that didn’t take very long. Just a couple of hours ago we learned that Ben Affleck will co-write, direct and star in a new Batman solo movie ahead of his appearance at Comic-Con 2015 this Saturday. If you thought you’d have to wait to learn more details about the project, DC’s chief creative officer and comic book writer Geoff Johns is already dropping hints.
We’d previously heard some rumblings about Ben Affleck possibly directing and starring in a solo Batman film for Warner Bros. and DC, and although the WB Comic-Con panel isn’t until this Saturday, we’ve already got major news: Affleck has been confirmed to direct, star in and co-write the solo Batman film with DC Comics’ own Geoff Johns.
Here’s something you don’t see at every Comic-Con. Although fans and critics alike get the chance to see major franchise stars in Hall H, they rarely get to interact with them up close. That will change this Saturday, as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will put aside their superhero squabbling and hit the con floor to sign autographs for fans.
