Batman V Superman Revs Up Pre-Comic-Con with New Photos

batmansupermancover-xlargeThanks to the lovely people over at Entertainment Weekly, we finally have some insightful images from the upcoming DC movie. Front and center is Wonder Woman who we also get to see another screen as her and Bruce Wayne have been rumored to be a couple or at least go to some ball. Superman gets a cult following of people with skulls painted on their heads. More notably we get a better look at Lex Luthor, one who would make Gene Hackman proud with a full head of hair that’s sure to come off. Among other details we find out that director, Zack Snyder, wanted to include a scene in Man of Steel where Bruce Wayne recieve a shipment with tons of kyptonite.  This leads us to a better idea of the Bruce Wayne/Batman that we will  be seeing. Ben Affleck plays an older, wearier Caped Crusader, one drawn at least in part from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. “He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,” says Affleck. “But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.” Worried that Superman’s unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.

 

The images released from Entertainment Weekly are as follows below. Comic-Con is taking place next weekend (July 9th-July 12th) and we’ll have full coverage of Batman v Superman and all the other shows and movies at Comic-Con 2015.
