Batman and Superman Face Off in New ‘Dawn of Justice’ Photos
It's only a few more weeks until Batman and Superman go head-to-head in Dawn of Justice, but by the looks of a new photo, they also might have a heart-to-heart.
While we didn't know a ton about the upcoming Zack Snyder film, Entertainment Weekly's latest issue reveals a few details on the anticipated showdown with a handful of new photos. One new image shows the two superheroes meeting face-to-face in what looks to be quite an emotional moment as the two stare each other down with Superman's hand on Batman's chest. (Quick, someone turn this into a rom-com meme!) Other photos show a look at a scared-looking Amy Adams as Lois Lane with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot's Diana Prince out of her Wonder Woman gear and Jeremy Irons' Alfred hard at work on some bat gear.
Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill also shared some more details on the troubling spots each of their superheroes are in. Dawn of Justice finds Gotham's vigilante late in his career and beginning to question himself. “He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman,” Affleck said of his Batman. Whereas the Caped Crusader has been fighting bad guys for years, Cavill's Superman is still fairly new to it. Cavill said that his Kryptonian's biggest weakness in the new movie is his fear of hurting people with his super strength. “He doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him," Cavill said. "This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”
Though Batman V Superman's release is four weeks away, Variety reports that the film is projected to have an over $140 million opening weekend, though Warner Bros. has suggested a $110 million opening. Either way, the big question remains whether the Synder film will meet or surpass Deadpool's $134.2 million opening weekend.
