New Batman v Superman Footage Coming This Monday
In just a few short days, Fox's Gotham will wrap up the first half of Season 2 with their fall finale Worse Than a Crime, airing Monday, November 30 at 8 PM ET. The network debuted a new promo for the last episode of 2015, which reveals that fans will be treated to a sneak peek of the highly-anticipated DC Comics adaptation Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during the broadcast. This promo doesn't include any of the new Batman v Superman footage we'll see on Monday night, but we do get to see the Gotham cast reveal which hero they would side with in this epic battle.
The video features Gotham stars Morena Baccarin (Dr. Leslie Thompkins), Cory Michael Smith (Edward Nygma), Robin Taylor (Oswald Cobbelpot), Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), and Drew Powell (Butch Gilzean) revealing who they would pick in the ultimate battle between Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill). While most of these actors are still loyal to Batman, given the show that they work on, Drew Powell actually sides with Superman. We'll have to wait until next March to find out who will win, but hopefully we'll see more footage from this battle during the sneak peek.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the first big-screen adventure ever that brings both Batman and Superman together. We learned from director Zack Snyder at Comic Con this summer that Batman's Gotham and Superman's Metropolis are "twin cities" separated by a bay, similar to San Francisco and Oakland. It has also been confirmed that part of the destruction in 2013's Man of Steel spilled over into Gotham, destroying Wayne Tower, which helps set up the conflict between these two heroes.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice supporting cast includes Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), along with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Holly Hunter in a role created specifically for this movie. Fans will also get their first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it has been rumored that The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) may also have cameo appearances.
It isn't known how long this special sneak peek of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be, but we'll find out in just a few short days during the Gotham fall finale on Monday, November 30. Director Zack Snyder revealed last month that the third trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is "coming soon," but we don't know yet if the footage shown during Gotham will be a full trailer or not. Take a look at this new Gotham, to see where the cast stands in regards to the Batman v Superman battle.
