One of the most promising aspects of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is how different Ben Affleck‘s take on the Caped Crusader appears to be. This isn’t Michael Keaton’s neurotic weirdo or Christian Bale’s angry young man – this is a tired, middle-aged vigilante whose fear and rage has boiled over into general world-weariness. Whether the film is ultimately good or not (and no number of lousy trailers can fully diminish every speck of hope), at least this Batman will stand apart from the others.
The difference between Batfleck and his predecessors can be seen in the film’s new take on the Dark Knight’s base of operations, the Batcave. Glimpsed in several of the trailers, this version of Batman’s laboratory/armory/garage/museum certainly looks like a refreshing take on the most famous secret lair this side of the Fortress of Solitude and two new photos are here to drive that point home.

There has been a variety of cool news for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lately. A trio of new character posters just debuted, finally giving Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman her own poster, and there’s a chance that the film might end up getting a 70mm release thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
And for Christmas Eve, we get a small gift from overseas with a new international Batman v Superman TV spot, and The Dark Knight isn’t afraid of taunting The Man of Steel at all. Read More »
Since the movie is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that most of the marketing has been centered around seeing these two superhero icons go head-to-head on the big screen for the first time. However, Wonder Woman stole the show in the latest trailer for the spring blockbuster, so it’s time she found her way to the spotlight.
Gal Gadot finally gets her own Wonder Woman poster along with two new posters featuring the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. However, they’re a little tainted by the big giant logos that are slapped on top of them. Read More »

It’s a conversation you’ve had countless times before. You had it at sleepovers when you were a young kid. You argued over it in the aisles of your friendly neighborhood comic book shop. You chatted the semantics of such a showdown in late-night, half-drunk dorm room discussions. You regularly debate the details on internet forums.
Who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman?
That question is the main appeal of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Everything else, no matter how effective, is ultimately window-dressing. People are going to see this movie, and we are going to talk about it until our voices die in our ruined throats, because that is the age-old hypothetical pop culture question. A new synopsis for Zack Snyder‘s upcoming film takes this fact and works it straight into the plot description.

The new images don’t reveal much from the forthcoming face-off between DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, but new details about the prologue involving Bruce Wayne and the origin of his rage and distrust of Superman are worth pointing out. Check ’em out after the jump. Read More »
