‘Batman vs. Superman’ Statues are Something You Can Buy With Hard-Earned Money Because You’re an Adult Now
If you think you’re going to reeeally love Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and you have a disposable income, you’re in luck! A few statues depicting those title characters in Exciting Action Poses are going to make their grand debut at Comic-Con 2015 before becoming available to purchase in January. You (yes, you!) will soon be able to have the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel preparing for battle on your shelf forever, frozen in time, their faces in perma-scowl mode.
The statue reveals originated over at Yahoo! and, snark aside, they are pretty cool for what they are. These are detailed sculpts, capturing every seam on Batman’s costume and the unique texture of Superman’s suit. The latter does an exceptional job of depicting Henry Cavill’s likeness. The latter does not fail to forget Ben Affleck’s magnificent chin. There’s also a third statue depicting Batman in his heavy Anti-Superman armor and it looks straight out of the trailer (which means it looks straight out of Frank Miller). It’s impressive.
But each of these statue will set you back $150, so you’ll need to cough up half a grand for the whole set. And while they’ll be on display at Comic-Con, you won’t be able to buy them until January 2016, a few months before the movie itself hits theaters. What about the poor schmucks who buy these things and end up hating the movie? Buyer’s remorse, they say, is the leading cause of death in nerds.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 26, 2016. Expect the next few days to be chock-full of new details. Comic-Con is upon us and you cannot escape.
