LOOK: ‘Batman v Superman’ character posters released
Warner Bros. Pictures on Thursday released the character posters of the upcoming film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” featuring the trinity of DC comics superheroes—Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
The release of the posters came five months after the first trailer of the film was released in July during the annual Comic-Con.
“Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before,” Warner Bros. said in a statement.
Directed by Zack Synder of “300” fame, the film will feature the first big-screen pairing of Batman and Superman, played by Oscar winner Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively.
It would be Affleck’s debut as Batman/Bruce Wayne after appearing as “Daredevil” in the Marvel 2003 film. Cavill, meanwhile, would return as Superman following his debut as the Big Blue in 2013’s “Man of Steel.” YG
