Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

New promotional materials for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been coming at a fast and furious pace. It might feel a bit dizzying to hear about the forthcoming R-rated home video edition, a rumor about Ben Affleck doing rewrites on the script during production, director Zack Snyder's idle musing about a future George Washington movie and more.

At heart, though, the movie revolves around the titular characters, the Dark Knight facing off against the Caped Crusader. Two new official photos reinforce that focus. First, we have a striking image of Superman (Henry Cavill) striding through what is presumably a government building (above). There is a great purposefulness to his walk, as is expected ot the man of steel, owning up to his responsibilities.

The other new photo also features Superman, but it's a far less positive impression. This time he's on the defensive, pinned down under the boot of Batman (Ben Affleck). We know Superman has superpowers while Batman does not, but despite that, it seems that Batman has gotten the drop on his powerful foe.

How, exactly, will Batman be able to take on Superman on anywhere close to equal terms? That's the essence of the point raised by faithful butler Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons) in a new TV spot, which also features Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) happily watching the two heroes face off, plus Lois Lane (Amy Adams) lending support to one of them.


Certainly there are a large number of iconic characters who will be appearing in the movie, including Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), but the main thrust of the story will likely hinge on the epic battles between Batman and Superman. We can't wait to see what surprises await.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will smash into theaters on March 25.
