Batman v Superman gadgets

Comic-Con is officially underway here in San Diego, and Preview Night kicked off the pop culture convention last night giving us an early look at what all your favorite movies, TV shows, comic books and more have to show off.

There’s plenty of cool sights to see on the show floor, but perhaps as a tease of the goodies to come from Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment this weekend, we got a first look at some of the gadgets that Ben Affleck will be using as the Caped Crusader in Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Matt Ferguson bottleneck

You probably know Matt Ferguson‘s work. He did the popular Guardians of the Galaxy/Star Wars mashup. He did these beautiful Star Wars and Lord of the Rings prints. He’s got an great eye for pop culture but, more important, the space a pop culture character inhabits. That’ll be the focus of his first solo show, Distant Lands, which opens Friday March 27 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.

Ferguson has created 10 new screenprints and 24 original pieces all showing pop culture characters in various, vast environments. Some of these – like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings – you’ve probably already seen. However, /Film is happy to exclusively reveal the bulk of the show including pieces for The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Superman, The Hobbit, The Neverending Story, Forbidden Planet and Silent Running.

Superman Is Coming to ‘Supergirl’, Sorta

Supergirl and Superman

It seems Supergirl‘s Super-Cousin will be stopping by her new series. A casting call has gone out for Superman to appear in the upcoming pilot from CBS.

However, don’t expect him to be a regular in Kara’s adventures — the listing suggests we won’t be getting up close and personal with him. At least not for now. More on the Supergirl Superman casting after the jump.  Read More »

If all goes to plan, Henry Cavill will be Superman for a long time. Before he accepted the role, however, many actors almost played the character. Nicolas Cage is a famous one. Josh Hartnett is another and Jude Law is a third. Law recently told the story of how he was considering playing the role in a version of the film that was going to be directed by Brett Ratner, but ultimately passed. Listen to the Jude Law Superman story below. Read More »
