Batman vs. Superman: First Look And SpoilersBy: Toni Matthews-El - June 30, 2014
Are you eager for the release of the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie…or perhaps waiting to see how big a disaster it might be?
While you’re waiting for the first clip from the movie via the San Diego Comic Con, have some news fresh from the set of the movie!
First up is a look at actor Henry Cavill
Cavill is featured in an image tweeted from the official Twitter account of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
In addition to the T-shirt Cavill is holding in support of the charity, if you look closely, you can see the chair next to him has “Clark” written on it.
Does this mean that Cavill is dressed as “Clark Kent” in the photo? He certainly has the look of a mild-mannered reporter.
If only he were wearing Kent’s trademark frames.
But a behind-the-scenes look at Superman’s alter ego isn’t the only news that has leaked to the internet about the upcoming blockbuster.
Images from the set of the Batman vs. Superman movie featuring a half-finished Superman statue suggested that the hero was being honored by the citizens of Metropolis.
Apparently the newest leaked images from the set feature citizens placing flowers on the statue. We’ve seen this before (Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” anyone?), which begs the question why this trope would be used again.
There is some speculation that “The Death of Superman” storyline from the comics is where this movie is headed.
Maybe or maybe not.
It could be that Superman is “killed”, which means that a team of heroes (The Justice League) is needed to step up and protect the Earth.
Many have accused DC and Warner Bros. of rushing this movie and the Justice League introduction in order to gain traction and catch up to the very successful series of Marvel movies.
Details released about the movie have been subjected to a great deal of criticism and skepticism.
