Batman and Superman were the talk of Comic Con today as “Batman v. Superman” director Zack Snyder showed a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Warner Bros opened their Hall H panel with a teaser for the film.
Snyder also surprised the crowd at Hall H with a real life appearance of his Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman when Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot hit the stage. The three actors did not speak or take questions at their brief appearance. The noise in the hall was so loud that the trailer needed to be shown twice.
In the trailer description according to Hitflix, the footage opens with a shot of Batman pulling a tarp off of the Batsignal. The Batsuit looks similar to the Batsuit in the Dark Knight films. Once the tarp is off, he throws a switch and the spotlight comes on. Snyder's camera moves around behind Batman so we can see the Batsignal in the sky. And there, in the middle of it, hovers Superman. In the close-up, Superman's eyes start to glow red, and the final shot is a cut back to Batman, as close as possible, ready for whatever's about to happen.
Affleck, who will play Batman in the movie, received a glowing reception by the crowd. When his casting was first announced, many took to Twitter and other social media sites to announce their opposition. Clearly all was forgotten in the hall today. Cavill returns as Superman for the movie and Wonder Woman will be introduced played by Gal Gadot. Snyder teased a poster of the three in various tweets throughout the Comic Con weekend.
Snyder told the crowd he was very pleased that the way things were going on the production. “Was shooting last night, jumped on a plane to get here, he said. “Couldn't be happier with the way everything is going. Just the way the talent and the special effects and the set are going. Couldn't be happier.”
The movie is currently set for a May 6, 2016 release.
