New Superman Images Released By A.D. Poole
This has been quite the week for DC comics reveals, with announcements for the premier of “Gotham” at Comic-Con and the October releases of the new “Arkham Manor” and “Gotham Academy” comic series. New developments have also surfaced for the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” film.
The Wrap reported that, “[Zack] Snyder didn’t give out many details that matter, except that he’s relying on Batman’s 75-year-old reputation, so audiences will be introduced to the oldest version of the Dark Knight that they have seen on the big screen yet. “It’s cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys,” Snyder said.
Ben Affleck’s Batsuit shown in May certainly does sport a retro look for a new take on the hero.
The Wrap also reports that Snyder explained why there is only a “v” instead of a “vs.” in the title. He said it will “keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”
