Whenever a new trailer for any highly-anticipated movie is released, often times, a new poster isn't that far behind. Just two weeks after the third trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was unveiled, Warner Bros. has debuted three new character posters featuring the Trinity: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). These one-sheets also feature each hero's iconic logo, while offering a new look at Batman's mecha armor.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will make cinematic history, since it will mark the first time that both Batman and Superman will be seen on the big screen together. Director Zack Snyder revealed at this year's Comic Con 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.
Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) return for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which introduces a slew of new characters. Jesse Eisenberg stars as Lex Luthor, alongside Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Holly Hunter in a role created specifically for this movie. Other supporting cast members include Jena Malone, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tao Okamoto and Scoot McNairy.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will kick off Warner Bros.' DC Comics Extended Universe (DCEU) on March 25, 2016. Just a few months later, the villains will take over with Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016), which will also feature an appearance by Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight. Those movies will be followed by Wonder Woman (June 23, 2017), Justice League Part 1 (November 17, 2017), The Flash (March 23, 2018), Aquaman (July 27, 2018), Shazam! (April 5, 2019), Justice League Part 2 (June 14, 2019), Cyborg (April 3, 2020) and Green Lantern Corps. (June 19, 2020). Ben Affleck is also reportedly developing a new stand alone Batman trilogy, but the studio hasn't issued any official word on those films yet.
Zack Snyder directs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from a script by Chris Terrio. Both the writer and director will return for Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which starts shooting this coming spring in London.
