The first official photos from next year’s Batman v. Superman have been released online today, and they look awesome! In 2013, the movie was announced, and Ben Affleck was cast as Batman, which was met with a less than enthusiastic response online. As a casual fan of all superhero movies, I never felt any particular feelings toward the casting decision. I was just excited to have another awesome movie to watch. I also saw the first Superman movie in this latest series, and while the story was somewhat boring, I was a huge fan of Harry Cavill because, well, that jawline right?
Since the initial announcement, the outrage has died down, and the trailer and past cast photos have been met with excitement from fans. This morning, Entertainment Weekly released 7 new, exclusive photos online from the set of the film, set for release in 2016.
“For his climactic rooftop brawl with Superman, Batman outfits himself with a reinforced mech-suit equipped with strength-augmenting armor and, yes, kryptonite.”
Ben Affleck as Batman
“Henry Cavill returns to reprise his role as Superman from Man of Steel”
“While this version of the Lex Luther might be sporting luscious locks in this photo, you can rest assured that the movie will feature that iconic chrome dome.”
“Batman and Wonder Woman have a meeting of alter-egos as Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince parry and flirt at a high-society function.”
Ben Affleck and Director, Zack Snyder
