San Diego Comic Con is just one week away, and today Entertainment Weekly has revealed Batman V Superman with their new cover and a bunch of new images from the movie.
Saturday is the big day for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice at SDCC. We learned yesterday that the cast will show up at the convention, which means this year is going to be the big blow-out for the long-awaited entry to the DC Cinematic Universe.
Entertainment Weekly has posted their cover story, and has this to say about the plot:
“Batman v Superman introduces a new Batman only four years after the release of the final film in Nolanâ€™s Dark Knight Trilogy. Ben Affleck plays an older, wearier Caped Crusader, one drawn at least in part from Frank Millerâ€™s The Dark Knight Returns. â€œHeâ€™s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,â€ says Affleck. â€œBut this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.â€ Worried that Supermanâ€™s unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.”
That does sound a bit like The Dark Knight Returns. They’ve also posted some new images from the movie, and you can see them by clicking through the slides below:
