While it isn't known when the next trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will debut, new photos have arrived, giving fans the superhero fix they so desperately need. Today, Total Film revealed four new photos from this highly-anticipated adventure, while star Henry Cavill used his first ever Instagram post to reveal the cover of Total Film's December issue. The cover and photos feature the superhero trinity of Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Here's what Henry Cavill had to say in his Instagram message.
"So I've finally taken the leap into social media! And here's a little treat for you all in the form of a sneak peak of the Batman v Superman cover shot from Total Film magazine, before the issue comes out on Friday."
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will mark a historic milestone in cinematic history, since it is the first live-action movie to feature both of the iconic heroes Batman and Superman on the big screen. Director Zack Snyder confirmed at Comic Con that, in this movie, both Metropolis and Gotham are "twin cities" that are separated by a bay, and that one of the buildings destroyed in 2013's Man of Steel was actually Wayne Tower, which starts the conflict between these two heroes. The director told Total Film that fans will be sympathetic to both Batman and Superman when this action-packed adventure hits theaters.
"You kind of have to understand both of their point of views. I think you're sympathetic to both, in a weird way. It's inevitable, like two trains heading at each other on the same track."
Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero 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 vs Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before. Zack Snyder directs from a script by Chris Terrio, with the director and writer also coming back for Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. It has long been rumored that the end of the movie will also introduce members of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Take a look at these photos, and stay tuned for more on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
