Earlier this week, scanned photos from Empire Magazine's latest issue gave us a fresh look at Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and many more characters from the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, Empire has released the high-res images online, giving us a better look at these heroes. As you can see, Batman is using heavy artillery and Gal Gadot's Diana Prince is having a night out in her civilian attire. But it's the Superman photo that is most intriguing.
The Superman photo clearly features this superhero locked in his epic battle with Batman, a fight which has ben teased in a teaser and full-length trailer. It also features a nod to Superman lore, with the actor showcasing his iconic hair curl. The lates Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage shown during Warner Bros.' Hall H panel at Comic-Con showcased a few scenes that take place right before this fight, and a few tiny glimpses from the big brawl itself. Hopefully we'll get to see even more footage from this heart-stopping centerpiece sooner than later.
Here, we also get to see Ben Affleck's Batman preparing to use a massive machine gun, with director Zack Snyder at his side...Oh, wait, that's not a machine gun, that's a set of monitors! The filmaker confirmed to Empire that The Dark Knight is in his mid-40s, having fought crime in Gotham for the past 20 years. Unfortunately, we don't get another look at Gal Gadot's Diana Prince in her Wonder Woman costume, but we do get to see Laurence Fishburne's Perry White and Amy Adams' Lois Lane in the Daily Planet news room, standing along with Clark Kent.
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 also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Holly Hunter, who plays a character that doesn't originate in the DC Comics.
Zack Snyder directs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from a script by Chris Terrio. This superhero adventure will set the table for a number of DC Comics superhero adaptations, including Suicide Squad, Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2. Take a look at the photos below, and stay tuned for more images and footage.
