Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie.

Even before the Comic-Con trailer for Suicide Squad officially made it online, spy photos from the Warner Bros. set had confirmed that Ben Affleck will appear in the DC Comics cinematic universe film as Batman. It only makes sense, as his arch nemesis, The Joker (Jared Leto) is a primary character in the movie.
However, what about his future opponent, The Man of Steel? Since Superman and Batman will soon come to blows in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, it stands to reason that Superman could get involved with what happens in Suicide Squad. Well, someone finally asked Henry Cavill about whether or not we’ll see Superman in Suicide Squad. So what did he say? Read More »

By now you’ve probably seen the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that premiered at Comic-Con and went online shortly thereafter. Or maybe you’ve seen the slightly shorter theatrical edit of the trailer that was released last week. Either way, you’ve seen some of the destruction of Metropolis repeated as we now see part of the final battle from Man of Steel from the perspective of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, watching as one of his buildings is destroyed.
Now a fan has edited together parts of the scene from Man of Steel with footage from the Batman v. Superman trailer to help paint a slightly more complete image of what we’ll see unfold on the screen next spring. You might have seen a GIF floating around with a side-by-side comparison of the laser vision tearing apart the building, but this is a little different.

At San Diego Comic Con International 2015, Zack Snyder revealed a second full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As you probably know, Zack Snyder has a long history with Comic Con, and has always brought the goods to the convention.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been on the stage in San Diego for three years now: In 2013, Snyder invited Harry Lennix on stage to read a passage from the story which inspired Snyder’s next Superman film. The passage was from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and elicited one of loudest crowd reactions in Hall H history. Last year Snyder returned with a reveal of Wonder Woman and a brief clip of Batman in his armored suit looking up in the rain at Superman floating above him which captured the buzz of last year’s convention.
Both of those were included on my list of the greatest moments in Comic Con history. So did Snyder top the two previous appearances on the Hall H stage? Watch the new Comic Con Batman v Superman trailer after the jump, and check out a new poster as well.
