Ben Affleck Directing Batman

The Warner Bros. panel doesn’t begin at Comic Con until Saturday morning, but big news has already hit. Ben Affleck will star in a solo Batman film to follow the Justice League film, and he’ll also direct the movie, as rumored not long ago. The production will follow Affleck’s adaptation of the novel Live By Night, which was just formally set by Warner Bros. this week. But there’s more of a development for the project that comes in the form of a co-writer with a great deal of DC experience. Read More »

Batman v Superman photos

Comic-Con is nearly upon us, and you can bet Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are going to bring out the big guns when they show off Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in San Diego. Before that, the studio has released some new photos from the movie to hold fans over until the good stuff arrives next week.

The new photos from the first big-screen battle between The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel show us plenty of new stuff, including Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but with a healthy mane of hair; a shot of Batman in his steel suit with the bat signal; Superman (Henry Cavill) being worshiped by a crowd; and a couple shots of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, one of which also has Gal Gadot as Diana Prince. Check out the new Batman v Superman photos below!

Update: High-res versions of these photos have been released; you can see those below.

After the release of Man of Steel, some fans griped about the massive amount of seemingly careless destruction in the finale when Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) zoom around Metropolis, smashing into skyscraper after skyscraper. And this is all after the world engine has already done plenty of damage to the city as well.

Last winter we found out that those complaints would be addressed in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the level of destruction would actually be a major element in how the rest of the world views Superman, and more specifically, how Bruce Wayne views the new godlike hero. And because of that, Zack Snyder has defended the ending to those complains, and Ben Affleck has added another detail that fuels the fire between Batman and Superman.
