It’s a “Man of Steel” kind of week!
After getting our first look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent in an unofficial photo on Twitter, there’s finally a first official photo of Zack Synder’s upcoming film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“!
The official photo, released by USA Today, features Clark Kent in his Superman suit standing on the rooftop of a building in unknown city. We say “unknown” but with that moody skyline and raining setting, the photo pretty much hints that Superman is standing somewhere in Gotham city, the place in which Batman quietly observes and protects.
Now, the question is, “What is Superman doing at Gotham city?”
With the title of the film in mind, it makes ultimate sense that we will either see Superman in Gotham city or Batman in Metropolis. While we are expecting an epic battle between Batman and Superman, Snyder explains that the “v” in the title was a more subtle way to keep it from being a straight “versus” movie.
Plus, Lex Luthor has already been included in the movie as the villain that Batman and Superman would go up against.
However, Snyder has not rule out the possibility of Batman going up against Superman as well!
He explained that when he was directing “Man of Steel”, he figured that he’d one day adapt Frank Miller’s seminal 1980s masterpiece, “The Dark Knight”, in which a retired Batman goes against government agent Superman. “It’s cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys”, he was quoted as saying. Thus, he’s going to develop a much older, road-wearing take on Affleck’s Batman in the movie.
So, are there any changes in the costume? We’re still not seeing the iconic red underwear here because it seems like he is wearing the same skin suit from “Man of Steel” (2013).
