Entertainment weekly's Batman v superman photos and what they mean
Entertainment Weekly has released a few new photos from the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film in the road to San Diego Comic Con. First, the Cover.
I think this is the first time we have seen all the costumes in their full light. Unfiltered by any photographic trickery. Now we get the best look at the Wonder Woman costume. It is good to know that the Blue in the outfit will in fact be blue and not the muted browning color of Wonder Woman first photo. Zack Snyder always likes to leave a little to the imagination when he reveals a photograph.
But the most interesting this is that it is a very close interpretation of the Jim Lee cover of Infinite Crisis #1. Let's hope that Wonder Woman will also have a cape in the film. I always liked Wonder Woman in a cape.
Next we have Snyder and Affleck talking on the set of the film. In the interview with EW. Affleck has stated that Bruce Wayne had an office building that was destroyed in the Black Zero event. Seems we will get a bit of a flash back to that time. If s, Wayne was also in Metropolis during the event.
We have seen a previous photo with Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor without hair. In this newly released photo we see him with hair. It looks like a wig. So It might be that he lost it earlier off camera(Maybe it happened in Man of Steel) or it just happens to not look great and will loose it later in the film. Either way I hope they make it so that Superman is responsible for Lex's hair loss like in the comics. Would be a nice nod.
In the last picture we see out of costume Dian Price and Bruce Wayne. Ben Affleck described this scene like this:
“I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person.” So it appears that they know each other Secret Identities. I'm guessing Wonder Woman is either taking the Ambassador like role in the modern comics as opposed to a more "civilian" type of alter ego. Very interesting things to ponder in these photos. What do you all think?
Be back in a few weeks for updates of the San Diego Comic Con. I will try to follow all the news that flows out. And give updates on as much as I can as far as Comics in Film. As always, see you in the theater.
