Hold on to your butts! Footage from the Batman Vs. Superman panel at Comic-Con featuring Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons is available for your viewing pleasure.
Top 3 Takeaways from this juicy panel:
Zac Snyder discusses the conflict between Batman & Superman, the comic story lines that inspired it and teases a continuation of story types like these down the road.
The cast of the film each share tidbits about the characters they’ll be playing and their gratitude to be on the project. Best line has to come from Ben Afleck who assured us that he was skeptical about the role:
“I think if I had thought too hard about the actors who played this part before I wouldn’t have taken the job…I talked to Zac about it and was like are you sure? I have this vision for the guy [and you’re perfect.] He’s at the end of his rope, he’s older, he’s a burn out and I was like…Thanks, I appreciate that.”
Holly Hunter.…any guesses on what important role will she be playing, that not one soul will say, the internet included.
(trust me I looked)
The trailer, for your information, hit earlier today. You can watch it HERE. It looks pretty (visually) and appears to have quite a number of fan satisfactory scenes and sequences. But… there was a lot going on, and that was just the trailer. There is the lingering fear that this will be a over extended, convoluted mess. Still, if I wasn’t Bat-fleck curious before, I am now.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25th 2016.
