We’ve seen promo images of Batman and Wonder Woman from the forthcoming superhero showdown Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, EW (via Comicbook.com) has revealed images of Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot out of costume and in character as their alter egos.
Though set photos of Affleck as Wayne appeared online weeks ago, this is the first time we’ve seen Gadot as Diane Prince. That’s the pair of them above, looking classy at what’s sure to be some Wayne Enterprises charity event.
The EW article focuses on what Affleck will be bringing to the classic cape and cowl. “We accept that [Batman’s] played by actors with different interpretations,” he said, comparing the character to an American Hamlet. As for his interpretation, Affleck explained his version of Wayne is “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.”
In addition, the magazine gave a first description of the iconic Wayne Manor. Much like Wayne himself, his home has aged considerably, now appearing as “a desolate husk, overtaken by weeds and water-stains after years of neglect.”
The cover for the issues features a fresh image of Bats, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Wonder Woman. The article came with a handful of other images, including one of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, either before he loses his hair or wearing a less-than-flattering wig. There’s also a pic of Affleck on set with director Zack Snyder, a closeup of Batman and Superman facing off, and the armored-up Batman next to the new Bat-Signal. Check those out below. Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 26th, 2016.
