Finally, Some Official Photos From Batman v Superman
We’re less than a year away from the release of Zack Snyder’s follow-up to Man of Steel and at last we’re getting a glimpse at more than just a few promo shots of Ben Affleck’s snazzy costume.
Entertainment Weekly snagged a set of photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, revealing a showdown between the two super rivals, a meeting of two alter egos, and a villain in dire need of a haircut. Have a look:
According to EW, that’s a “reinforced mech-suit equipped with strength-augmenting armour and kryptonite” that Affleck is sporting for his big battle against Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel. (Sorry, Supes. Our bets are on Batman.)
“I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person,” Affleck told the magazine. Cue tabloid rumours about an Affleck/Gadot on-set romance in 3… 2… 1…
This is Superman scanning the horizon for a decent tall building to leap over, hating his agent for promising that he’d take a selfie with every single person in this crowd.
And here’s our Lex Luthor before he got his trademark, badass makeover. Little known fact: while Luthor is indeed a very rich man, he’s also a cheapskate—note the H&M sale rack cardigan and the shirt which could only have come from a DJ Jazzy Jeff garage sale.
Lastly, we’ve got a group shot of our three heroes and their three serious faces, evidence of Snyder’s strict no smiling on set policy.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is out March 25, 2016.
