Resting at the heart of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most epic superhero fights the world will ever see. One moment from this brawl is teased in the latest batch of photos from the upcoming DC Comics adventure. Total Film's latest issue is the gift that just keeps giving, as we get to see a few more glimpses of action from this anticipated March release.
The centerpiece of these 6 new images finds The Dark Knight swooping down from the sky to kick Kal-El in the face. As we've seen from the trailers, both good guys are about to go crashing through that ceiling skylight. What happens minutes after is anyone's guess, but it will probably be intense, insane and every other over-glorified exclamation you want to tack onto it! We're sure director Zack Snyder won't disappoint.
Also included in this latest set of stills is a new look at the Batmobile. And as you can see, it is getting a significant change from the last time we saw it on the big screen in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. That film's Tumblr was a heavy piece of hardware. This version of the Batmobile is a little more DIY. Speaking at the Bob Kane ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this week, Zack Snyder had this to say about the new Batmobile and how it has evolved over time.
"The new Batmobile is super fast. It's purpose built, which I like. We imagine that Batman built it over time, you know, with parts from Wayne Industries or something. He's made it specifically for the job of fighting crime."
Tim Burton's 1989 Batman didn't have time to offer up an origin story for the Batmobile. But in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, we learned that the iconic car was repurposed from a military bridging vehicle. It sounds like Zack Snyder definitely wants to distance his version of Batman from those past incarnations, with the Batmobile a sort of weekend project for Bruce Wayne. This offers the ability to have it keep evolving through the Untitled Batman Reboot and the Justice League movies as well.
While these latest photos give us another look at the epic fight and the Batmobile, we also get to see Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. Sure, this image of Gal Gadot in her red dress was unveiled in the previous trailer. But whose going to balk as seeing her again? We also get to see The Dark Knight standing next to his Batsignal, and Kal-El lifting the fallen space shuttle. What do you think? Do these latest images get you revved up for this battle of the titans? Or are you tired of waiting for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to arrive?
