While we still have to wait slightly longer than three months until the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. have sated our appetites as best they can, kicking the film’s marketing into high gear. A couple weeks ago, we were treated to a new trailer that showed DC’s Trinity -Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman – as they stood united against the film’s newly revealed villain, Doomsday.
Today brings another treat as WB has revealed three new character posters via the official Facebook pages of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot, respectively. Letting each actor reveal these never before seen looks at their characters by way of social media is indeed a great way to keep their fans engaged as they eagerly anticipate the movie’s release.
Each poster captures the essence of each member of the Trinity as they would be in battle: Batman is decked out in his battle armor, which is straight out of Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novel, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns; Superman sizes up an unseen opponent, giving a look that I can only term “Big Blue Steel”; and Wonder Woman looks well prepared to take down whatever threat comes her way with her Amazonian weaponry at the ready.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 25, 2016. As always, let us know what you think of these posters, as well as what your expectations of the film are, in the comments section below.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
