First Look at Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Not all that long ago we got our first official look at Ben Affleck in the bat costume as Batman, and a few days ago we got a good look at Henry Cavill in his Clark Kent guise. Now here’s your first official look at Cavill in Superman costume from Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Up next: Wonder Woman?

And just for comparison’s sake, here are the two “versus” each other:

In an interview with USAToday, director Zack Snyder calls the film “thicker, denser and more epic than Man of Steel.”

Man of Steel was all about Superman finding his place in the world as both a hero and as a man, ultimately saving the city of Metropolis from certain doom. Dawn of Justice continues to immerse him on Earth by working at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent along with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). But it also takes him to new environments such as Gotham City and introduces larger threats, including Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).

Bats and Supes go at it 2 years from now on May 6, 2016.

    Just for Comparison, Man of Steel on left BvS on right. I like the subtle changes, like the belt, and the design work has been streamlined on the side. And he looks bigger, and even MORE like Superman. Just wish they’d give him the S curl. Seeing the two suits next to each other, this film is going to be sick! Now show me WONDER WOMAN and then Aquaman!!

    • Antonio Basara

      yes, looks rly good ^^

      Ok, wild theory time (like there hasn’t been enough of that already re: “B v S”) but I wonder what the time jump from “MoS” to this will be. Could be just the lighting, but Superman looks more than just two or three years older. Whereas Cavill appeared a bit baby-faced the first time around, this version could almost pass for Kal-El in “Kingdom Come” thanks to the different hariline and the harder looking contours on his face. Makes me think that both Batman and Superman will be played as the more seasoned members of the Justice League

        2 years since MoS

        No Justice League yet. But Batman will have been established for years (as an Urban Myth)

  • Juggernaut

    According yo this article three (technically 4) characters have joined the cast

      My guess is Scoot McNairy will play Morgan Edge with Callen Mulvey playing David Cain.

      • Dedpool

        I can see both of those working.

        I still want CCH Pounder for Waller!!

    I’m loving it. 2 Years is gonna be a long wait!
