Folks are getting pretty excited for the upcoming trial of the century, Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (not to be confused with the other trial of the century, which recently concluded). Despite a distinctly lukewarm reaction to the trailer, there’s still a guarded optimism that maybe this could possibly be good. (“Possibly good?” would make a fitting pull quote for director Zack Snyder’s last superhero outing, Man Of Steel, given its contentious reception.) So the internet went a little bananas for the new photos Entertainment Weekly posted today, which include such exciting images as Batman and Superman just glowering the hell out of it. Glower power.
You can see the rest of the photos here. Additionally, the stars of the film took time out of their busy grimacing schedules to chat about the new movie. Snyder, for instance, reveals the origin of the film in a scene that didn’t make the final version of Man Of Steel:
I said, ‘What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor?’. Everyone was like…‘Okaay.’ Once you say it out loud it’s a problem because you can’t unsay it.
Indeed, much as you can’t simply turn back time to prevent people from dying, you also can’t unsay words that came out of your mouth, even if you’re clearly actually super-proud of your words and you’re doing a fake humblebrag about the whole thing. For that tidbit—and other boilerplate quotes about the endeavor from both Affleck and Cavill, both of whom are clearly in full-on Press Soundbite Mode—you can check out Coming Soon’s excerpts from the interview (which is only available to EW subscribers).
Oh, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the one image where Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor seems to be auditioning for a job as a Silverchair roadie.
