And the first picture of the Trinity!

















Batman v Superman introduces a new Batman only four years after the release of the final film in Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Ben Affleck plays an older, wearier Caped Crusader, one drawn at least in part from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. “He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,” says Affleck. “But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.” Worried that Superman’s unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.

Not content to consolidate only two eggs in this basket, they’ve also thrown in appearances by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) for good measure. After all, this isn’t just a single movie, it’s a waystation to the upcoming Justice League double-fister, not to mention a whole slew of other attractions on the DC Extended Universe™ road map.

I did a sharp intake of breath when I saw Wonder Woman. Been waiting ages for them to show some more of her.

Gotta be a wig or something on Lex, right?

I'll never understand these "white background, extremely well-lit" promo shots. Not only do they often turn out bad, they make outfits look silly as well.

Infinite potential and this is what they come up with? Come on now.

I really do hope this will be good, but every image and trailer they release just seems... off somehow.

Or they could be going for his pre-Crisis origin of his baldness.

I like the cowl...but his head is way too large/wide. I'm not really a fan of Batfleck from what I've seen so far. It's just not doing anything for me.

Definitely is, we've already gotten a shot of him sans hairpiece. I'm hoping for a humorous dewigging scene at some point.

Something I'm still not understanding. Bruce is nearing the end of his tenure as Batman and they're just now starting the Justice League?

He's actually retired at this point, IIIRC. Comes out of retirement in the wake of Metropolis.

Honestly, I don't think it looks so bad. I mean, it's tough to mess up those costumes. Freaking gorgeous.

Hmm, not really looking the Batsuit. Also don't really know about the eyes in the picture with the Batsignal glowing, hopefully that will come across better in action.

Don't like Lex at all. Hopefully his acting (don't expect it to) will make me happy to see him in the role. In that picture he sort of looks like and angsty teen.

Superman looks decent.

I really want to like this movie, but these pictures aren't filing me with hope.
