‘Batman V Superman’: Entertainment Weekly Images Hype Upcoming Comic Con

Comic Con begins next weekend and Warner Bros is taking advantage of the buzz surrounding their highly anticipated DC panel. After all, the absence of Marvel creates an opportunity for all the focus to be on DC and their upcoming event film Batman V Superman, which will kick their Cinematic Universe into high gear.

Everything we’ve seen from this film has so far been a teaser. That continues today with new photos from Entertainment Weekly for BvS. Starting with the cover of DC’s Holy Trinity (Bat, Wonder, Supes). I have no problem with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) being the center, just another symbol of the rift between Batman and Superman. If I’m not mistaken, the Wonder Woman character is making her first debut ever on the big screen, making her the most anticipated single character. Its also worth mentioning how huge Ben Affleck looks in the Batsuit, although Batman as a character just looks better when there’s not so much light shinning on him.

The image below the cover has me a bit curious at a potential attraction between Diana Prince (Gadot) and Bruce Wayne. If so, they certainly captured that tone in the photo. Affleck talks about this in the quote from EW below.

Jesse Eisenberg makes his debut as Lex Luthor with a bad hair wig, and hopefully that was intentional. I have high hopes for him stepping into such an iconic villain role, and what I’ve seen from him so far (The Double, Now You See Me) suggests he will deliver. I also included a quote from earlier this month from Eisenberg on his character, just in case anyone decided to give up all hope on this version of Lex Luthor.

In a little over a week from now, we may have tons more to talk about regarding Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Affleck“I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person.”

Jesse Eisenberg (via MTV earlier this month): “There’s an emotional core to the character. It’s not a silly villainous character,” he told MTV. “…it is an entirely different thing. Also, the tone of that [‘Superman’] movie is so different, like that movie wouldn’t be made now. Like the way we expect movies to be now is to have some kind of — I mean, it’s probably for the best — there’s some kind of psychological accuracy. That the person is coming from a place probably diagnosable in some way.”

Affleck“Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet. We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations.”

Affleck: “He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.

Zack Snyder: “I liked the fact that Ben was 6’ 4” and taller than Henry. I wanted Superman to have to feel like he was looking up to Batman despite being so much stronger.”

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 25, 2016.

    • I’m hoping he’s already bald and just wears a wig, because that things looks so bad.
      The last thing I want in a film that’s trying to be dark and grounded is a distraction like that.
