Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman. Two thirds of these heroes have been on the big screen for plenty of years now. But never before, have they teamed up in one movie. That’s what Batman V Superman is all about, as the flick charts the rise of the Justice League according to it;s silly sub-header. And at the San Diego Comic Con, there was plenty of information to dish out on that film.
The biggest news coming out of the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice panel wasn’t to do with the two leading men. It was to do with the leading lady of the film, as director Zack Snyder revealed the cinematic debut of Wonder Woman:
Damn, that is one hell of a great costume. It doesn’t look like a pin-up boy fantasy (Unless you have weird tastes like Kervyn), and this looks like an Amazon who is here to make war, not love.
Of course, there’s a reason why this film is named Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and not Batman V Superman: My Lasso Of Truth Is Up Here. We’ve already had a taste of Henry Cavill in Man Of Steel. but Ben Affleck’s Batman has been even stealthier than his comic book counterpart, with barely a photo here or there seen.
For the lucky fans in Hall H however, they didn’t just get to see a dark knight. They got to see a dark knight return.
In case you didn’t get the reference, that was a dig at the other batsuit that Batfleck will be wearing, a heavy set of armour based on the suit from the cult classic graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, wherein Batman and Superman clashed. In case you can’t see the video above (because it’ll most likely have been legal cock-blocked by now), here’s some images from ComicBook.com and a description of the scene from ComingSoon:
“Batman is standing on a Gotham rooftop in the rain. His costume isn’t what we’ve seen already. It’s big and bulky, like his armor in The Dark Knight Returns. His eyes light up, solid white. He’s moving a tarp, revealing the bat signal He turns it on and the camera tracks up to the sky. Superman is there, hovering in the light, and he doesn’t look happy. His eyes light up with heat vision as he glares at Batman.”
Finally, discussion veered towards the Justice League movie, with The Hollywood Reporter saying that Chris “Argo” Terrio was been sought to write the script for that titanic team-up. Terrio helped write the screenplay alongside David Goyer for Batman V Superman, with Warner Bros apparently being impressed enough to offer him the job, which will also be directed by Snyder.
And with all that info, Batman V Superman had arrived in a flash, and disappeared into the night.
