Release Date: March 25, 2016
Starring Laurence Fishburne, Ben Affleck, Dan Latham, Michael Shannon
Directed by Zack Snyder
While we have an extremely long wait for Zack Synder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Comics has released a close-up Batman still that looks very well. I know everyone did not like the fact that Ben Affleck will be the new Batman but even though it is very early in the movie stage, I am hopeful that the combined efforts of all the actors (Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Scoot McNairy, Jeremy Irons), director Synder, writer Chris Terrio who is working off the screenplay created by David S. Goyer will really shine.
*Update - The release date has now been pushed forward to March 25, 2014 to avoid competition with Marvel's Captain America 3.
DC Comics has stated:
This year, Batman’s stepping out of the shadows…and into the Comic-Con spotlight. With his 75th Anniversary going strong, Batman is a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con. He’s been seen in comics, film, TV, games, toys and clothing, and it’s all represented within the DC Entertainment booth, particularly in the Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show. Within this wall, you can spot many images of the Dark Knight, both old and in some cases very new.
As in never before seen.
Yes, as fans have started pointing out, within the dozens of photos and illustrations on the wall is a brand new image of Batman from the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The filmmakers wanted to include this new cinematic version of the Dark Knight in the anniversary mosaic so it could be discovered by fans! The cast and crew behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are excited to be a part of the 75th celebration!
