Warner Brothers is, right this very moment, hosting their San Diego Comic Con panel, and attendees got their first footage of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to IGN, this is what that footage (as of yet, not available or leaked to the public) entailed:
“It starts with thunder and rain, as a hand pulls a tarp off of something… it’s Ben Affleck’s Batman on a Gotham City rooftop, and he’s in the full bat-armor from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. His eyes are glowing white, and we see that what he’s pulled that tarp off of is the bat-signal. He turns the signal on and the famed bat symbol fills the sky… but then we see it’s aimed at something. At a man floating in the sky. A super-man! Cut to a close-up of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel as his eyes start to glow with heat vision. Cut back to Batman whose eyes are still glowing white. It’s the stare down of all stare downs! Cut to the title screen: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
Likely just a teaser, but c’mon! An armored Batman!! After the footage aired, Zack Snyder brought Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot onto the stage.
Throughout it all, Warner Bros. put up a picture of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman online.
No word yet on anything else DC is planning, or whether they’re confirming their reportedly leaked movie lineup.
[UPDATE] Cast photos from after the panel have surfaced, featuring Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck and director Zack Snyder.
And although the official teaser trailer for BvS hasn’t yet leaked, here’s a screenshot of Batman in the classic bat-armor outfit from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns!
