Awesome new images from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice are here!

Admit it, that’s your new desktop image, isn’t it?

EW have just revealed a batch of new Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice images and we love them so very, very much…

The images have our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor – although we believe this hairy look will only be a brief thing in the movie – we also see Batman squaring up to Superman, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince (Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot) together and a few images of comics’ greatest trio of heroes together.

Batman himself, Ben affleck, talks to the magazine about playing the Dark Knight and admits: “We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations [in this movie he’s the modern Hamlet], he’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it… He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it, but this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.” 

We can only guess that this is a taster in the run up to SDCC where the cast of the movie are expected to take to the famous Hall H on Saturday.

The outlet also had a description of the new Wayne Manor for the film, calling it “a desolate husk, overtaken by weeds and water-stains after years of neglect.”

The cast for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to assemble in Hall H next Saturday for San Diego Comic-Con. You can get all the details on the WB panel by clicking here.

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.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
