There’s been a lot of uncertainty about the Man of Steel sequel — Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was rumored to be involved, but then more rumors started circulating suggesting that Warner Bros. has put Man of Steel 2 on hold for the time being, and the film doesn’t seem to have a place on the studio’s DC film schedule. According to Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is basically a Man of Steel sequel, so you don’t need to really worry about it.
Just yesterday we got a new look at the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and today brings even more official photos from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown. Among them you’ll find a furious Superman, a brooding Batman and a quite lovely Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman.
Just last week we heard the rumor that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is in talks with Warner Bros. to helm Man of Steel 2 — that seemed a bit surprising, but even more surprising is today’s rumor that Man of Steel 2 might not be happening anytime soon.
It’s hard to make an exciting action movie when you refuse to break a sweat.
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.
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!
