We’re just under 9 months away from sitting down to watch and likely masturbate over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which means that promotional gear is starting to leak in. Entertainment Weekly has let rip on a massive report for the superhero team-up movie (so much stuff that I will probably have exploded by the end of this article), and we’ll start with this image of Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince!
“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.”
Just, oh my God. This is so cool. Yeah, they’re not actually in costumes or doing anything interesting BUT this is still awesome. How many of us could have laid back and said “yep, this will happen” a few years ago? A very small number of people. To accompany the image, they also have a few interesting quotes from Ben Affleck on his portrayal of the Caped Crusader.
“He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”
He also compares Batman to Hamlet (I mean, we all love our superheroes, but still…): “We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations.” He’s not wrong, I guess.
However, that’s not all. There are a bunch of other stills that have been released – including a cover with all three superheroes on!!!
“It means that when it was supposed to look rainy and miserable, it had to be rainy and miserable. The long dark night of the soul and whatnot.” -Ben Affleck
‘While his version of the villain might be sporting luscious locks in this photo, you can rest assured that the movie will feature that iconic chrome dome.’ -EW
Am I the only one who thinks Lex looks like a stoner? I mean, he looks neat, but a stoner regardless. Or a hipster stoner. Kinda like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.
“I like to think that Man of Steel was the perspective of the world from Clark, Kal-El, looking at the world and trying to exist with in it. Batman v Superman is definitely more mankind’s perspective of Superman.” -Henry Cavill
The facial art here reminds me of Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival, although I have no idea why.
“It’ll be five years (working on the DCCU) by the time the movie comes out, and then if everything goes to plan it’ll be another five years of Justice League. I’ll be 10 years of superheroes by the end of this.” -Zack Snyder
‘For his climactic rooftop brawl with Superman, Batman outfits himself with a reinforced mech-suit equipped with strength-augmenting armor and, yes, kryptonite.’ -EW
I think this photo has gotta be my favourite because it’s so fucking cool. However, when it comes to pure geeky-awesomeness, this one really takes the biscuit.
Wonder Woman looks great. Batman looks great. Superman looks great. I may have hated Man of Steel but you have no idea how badly I’m hoping I will love Dawn of Justice.
This really is quite a good time to be a comic book fan. If you currently cannot contain yourself and feel as if you’re about to explode due to these fantastic images then please make sure you do so at another, crappier website. Thanks!
