Check Out The First Official Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Photos Here

1

Warner Bros. Pictures via Entertainment Wekly has released the first official Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice photos featuring glimpses at what to expect from the collision of the man of steel and the dark knight.

“We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations,” Affleck tells EW of the caped crusader, calling him the American version of Hamlet. Affleck went on to describe his version of the character, saying: “He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it…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, but this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.”

The outlet also had a description of the new Wayne Manor for the film, calling it “a desolate husk, overtaken by weeds and water-stains after years of neglect.”

The cast for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to assemble in Hall H next Saturday for San Diego 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.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.

Mattel To Debut Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Toys At San Diego Comic Con

Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are going to loom large at Comic-Con this year and in toy boxes.

The superheroes of the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (in theaters March 25, 2016) are bound to be a central component of the Warner Bros. movie panel at the San Diego Convention Center’s cavernous Hall H on July 11. Their action figures will also be on display and available for fans to take home as Comic-Con exclusives during the convention that begins next Wednesday.

Mattel is selling a movie-inspired BvS two-pack ($30) with the likeness of Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. Each of the 6-inch-tall figures comes with fabric capes, display bases that combine to form the film’s iconic logo, and lights-and-sounds packaging teasing one of the big moments from the upcoming movie.

Fans of the Batfleck’s new Batmobile can also pick up a Hot Wheels edition ($25) of the superhero ride, featuring a die-cast chassis and body, rubber tires and neato machine guns and missile launchers — all encased in limited-edition packaging.

Mattel has a new Barbie line coming in the spring, and at their booth the company is showcasing a doll based on actress Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman from Dawn of Justice. Standing 12 inches tall and featuring a sword, shield, tiara, bulletproof bracelets and her signature lasso of truth, Wonder Woman is part of the Barbie movie collection along with Superman and Batman.

And the Mattel booth is slated to display a life-sized Hot Wheels build of a Batman v Superman Twin Mill car designed to celebrate the film. Graphics on the car are inspired from the film suits of both heroes, and a die-cast toy version of the vehicle will be on sale in the spring as part of a movie-inspired Hot Wheels line.

MONDO Announces 2015 San Diego Comic Con Exclusives

Best known for its popular limited-edition posters, MONDO the boutique arm of the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain has exclusive artwork available for attendees at San Diego Comic Con (July 8-12). Yet its booth in the San Diego Convention Center will also have new action figures, vinyl records and other merch for the geek crowd.

The exclusives include:

1-9ac6e3cb39

Ant-Man poster ($85). Mondo has a variety of pieces for sale as well as some licensing announcements in store, but one of the items of note to superhero fans will be a holofoil screen print (limited to 175) inspired by the new Ant-Man film (in theaters July 17). Artist Kevin Tong said he wanted the design “to show Ant-Man’s scale, the intensity of his transformation, and really just trying to make a poster as fun and dynamic as the movie.”

Ninja Turtles figures (price TBD).

After Mondo dipped its toes in the toy business beginning last Comic-Con, this summer brings the first in a new series of toys based on the original TMNT comics of the 1980s. First up is Leonardo, who stands 11 inches tall and comes with a bunch of accessories including weapons, a blue mask to match the cartoons and a red mask from the comics. Also on display will be the upcoming figures of Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.

IMG_9387a_608a55bb-b682-4776-b8e6-2881b966db89_1024x1024
First Hellboy statue ($200). Before he became a comic-book hero and a movie star played by Ron Perlman, Hellboy was a black and white sketch done in 1991 by creator and artist Mike Mignola. Mondo’s created a polystone statue of this first pass at the horned hero — with the name “Hellboy” emblazoned on his belt — plus a variant color version done by original Hellboy colorist Dave Stewart. You can see him in San Diego but can’t take him home yet — interested parties can preorder Hellboy now at Mondo’s website. (Monster fiends will also want to stop by the booth to check out an upcoming Godzilla sculpture as well.)

635712870614004325-STAS-cover-disc

Superman vinyl ($25). Those with record players and a place in their heart for Shirley Walker’s theme composed for Superman: The Animated Series will want to pick up a die-cut single. Artwork for the cover is by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, and the record is cut in the shape of Superman’s iconic “S” shield — folks can choose between red vinyl or Kryptonite green.

635712869666879757-Aliens-Front-Cover

Aliens soundtrack ($35). This one’s special for fans of the late Oscar-winning composer James Horner, who died last week in a plane crash: A vinyl soundtrack of his score for James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi flick Aliens. The deluxe edition features more than a dozen musical cues new to vinyl plus five bonus tracks, and a cover design by artist Killian Eng. “I wanted the alien to play a big role,” he said, “but at the same time incorporate its shape into the materials of the space station, almost like it becomes the station itself, keeping the marines in a steady merciless grip.”
