Warner Bros. have released the first footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at Comic-Con 2014.
WB is set to bring us many exciting announcements concerning their future movie slate, but more importantly we’ve gotten a new look at Ben Affleck as Batman and now the first footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check out what went down in the film’s first footage:
In the film’s first footage we see Ben Affleck as Batman and he turns on the Bat signal. Blocking the light is none other than Henry Cavill as Superman, as he flies in the Bat signal’s light and both reveal that they’re angry.
Batman’s eyes are glowing during this part of the clip (pictured left) and when Superman sees that, he makes his eyes glow red.
They’re clearly angry with each other and this is the beginning of what Batman v Superman is all about. Read Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s first footage description:
The teaser’s setting takes place during the night where it’s pouring rain. They’re on a rooftop with Ben Affleck as Batman in a bulky armor almost, military grade, and his eyes are glowing as he pulls a tarp off the Bat signal.
It shines far into the sky where it’s lightning and standing inside Batman’s symbol is Henry Cavill’s Superman. He looks angry, his eyes are glowing red similar to what we’ve seen with his heat vision ray in Man of Steel. The camera pans in on Batman’s face as he looks angered and ready to fight when the film cuts to black.
The studio also premiered the first look at Wonder Woman, played by actress Gal Gadot. See the first shot of her in Wonder Woman’s never before seen costume at the link above.
Director Zack Snyder has jammed his movie with incredibly talented actors and highly anticipated superheroes, so we’ll be curious to see what ends up being the focus of the film. Let us know what you think of the new footage from SDCC ’14.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s release date is set for May 6, 2016. Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill will return along with Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
