If it's Saturday at Comic-Con, it's time for the big guns to come out, and Warner Bros. has done that with some serious style. The studio's panel opened with a big, bruising look at 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,' thanks to a new trailer (and more on that to come -- much more!), before director Zack Snyder trotted out stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot to greet their fans.
Move over, Marvel -- it's time for DC and Warner Bros. to have some fun at Comic-Con 2014. One of the movies we can't wait to hear more about this week is 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' and director Zack Snyder has just teased a new look at Ben Affleck's Batman from the upcoming film.
UPDATE - It turns out the below report from Latino Review was based on a fake script that was circulating online, and there is no truth to the rumors below of the additional villains in 'Batman vs. Superman.'
We got our look at one half of 'Batman vs. Superman' back in May when director Zack Snyder tweeted the first look at Ben Affleck as Batman. Today, we get our first look at the other half of that equation with our first official look at the new Superman.
When director Zack Snyder unveiled our first look at Ben Affleck all suited up as Batman (with his trusty Batmobile by his side) in his upcoming turn in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' the photo in question sent the internet into a whirl of excitement. Unfortunately, the same can't really be said of Henry Cavill's reveal, primarily because it's not even of him as Superman, but rather his journalistic alter-ego, Clark Kent.
Just yesterday, 'Batman vs. Superman' director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to entice fans with a teaser image of the new (and hopefully improved) batmobile coming in his 'Man of Steel' sequel with the promise of a full reveal coming soon. Now the time has come and we got more than we bargained for -- we've got our first look at Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight AND his new vehicle.
This is serious business, so let's get down to brass tacks: 'Batman vs. Superman' director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to tease his film's take on the Batmobile, AKA, Batman's personal vehicle, AKA, one of the most famous vehicles in all of popular culture. Snyder shared the first image of the iconic automobile, mostly covered by a tarp, with a message suggesting that a full reveal could come as soon as tomorrow.
It seems that the folks over at Warner Bros. are quite pleased with Zack Snyder's work because the studio has just officially signed the 'Man of Steel' and 'Batman vs. Superman' director to direct the upcoming 'Justice League' film, as well. That's going to keep him -- and presumably Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck -- pretty busy for a while.
When it was revealed that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' would actually be 'Batman vs. Superman', fans were both excited and concerned. To some, it sounded like the best thing ever. To others, it seemed like desperation after Superman's epic return didn't do 'The Dark Knight'-sized business. However, director Zack Snyder has officially gone on record explaining why the Caped Crusader will be in the film ... and it turns out that he's been thinking about this for awhile.
