Earlier today Entertainment Weekly revealed their Comic-Con issue which features Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman on the cover. They also debuted brand new details about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here are the big ones:
- For his climactic rooftop brawl with Superman, Batman outfits himself with a reinforced mech-suit equipped with strength-augmenting armor and, yes, kryptonite.
- Batman and Wonder Woman have a meeting of alter-egos as Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince parry and flirt at a high-society function. “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,” says Ben Affleck.
Affleck went on to compare Batman to Hamlet, saying “Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet. We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations.”
Affleck also commented on the fact that his Batman is much older than the ones we’ve seen on screen before. “He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”
Director Zack Snyder echoed the comments of producer Charles Roven, and said that they wanted Superman to have to look up to Batman. “I liked the fact that Ben was 6’ 4” and taller than Henry,” says Snyder. “I wanted Superman to have to feel like he was looking up to Batman despite being so much stronger.”
