Warner Bros. and DC Comics won’t take over Hall H until Saturday, but boots are already on the ground in San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con, and thanks to Collider and Toyark, some new images of the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice exhibit, showcasing some of the armor and high-tech weaponry that the heroes will use in the pic, have surfaced online.
Batman’s armored suit, clearly inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns comic, is on full display right now, alongside the Superman and Wonder Woman armor. All of Bats’ weaponry, from Batarangs to grenades, is also out for the world to see.
The amount of design work that went in to each and every prop for the Zack Snyder-directed superhero blockbuster is astounding. Everything we’ve seen from the pic so far has worked to strengthen the gritty, realistic feel of the film, from the grainy sheen of Bats’ armor to the military appearance of his gadgets.
