Just when you think you're officially over the whole ALS Ice Bucket Challenge thing, Amy Adams and Henry Cavill go ahead and do one from the set of 'Batman vs. Superman.' And they do it in costume, too. Yes, this may be your one and only opportunity to watch people pour buckets of ice water on Superman's head.
What happens in Hall H stays in Hall H ... at least when it comes to 'Batman vs. Superman.'
During Comic-Con 2014, fans at the Warner Bros. panel got to see the first 'Batman vs. Superman' teaser trailer, featuring a suited up Ben Affleck with glowing blue eyes glaring at Henry Cavill's hovering Superman, ready to do battle. However, if fans were hoping to see this same footage online shortly after, you're out of luck.
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.
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.
Earlier today, the Internet (including us!) got very excited to see Henry Cavill post a picture of himself as Clark Kent from the set of 'Batman vs. Superman.' At least, we think he's Clark Kent. It's hard to tell, because he's just wearing a sensible blue shirt and a tie. Anyway, we found nine more people dressed up like Clark Kent. Is this a conspiracy? Are they playing Clark Kent, too? Are we all Clark Kent? Honestly, this picture raisers many more questions than answers.
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.
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.
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.
Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’
Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have been keeping mum on their upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' film, despite letting slip that Lex Luthor will pop up as the new villain. With pre-production underway and the recent release of 'Man of Steel' on Blu-ray and DVD, though, stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) have chimed in on what we can expect from the upcoming superhero follow-up.
