A week before the cast of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” takes the stage at San Diego Comic-Con, fans can get a closer look at the Warner Bros. film thanks to new photos that debuted in Entertainment Weekly, which reveal Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) out of costume as their alter-egos Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince, as well as Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor sporting a ginger mane — a stark contrast to Eisenberg’s bald appearance in a previously released image.
Affleck also offered some insight into his version of the Dark Knight, a character that has been through many iterations on the big and small screen over the years, from Adam West to Christian Bale.
“He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it,” Affleck told EW. “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.”
Judging by the photo below, Bruce and Diana will share some screen time out of costume. Affleck said of the encounter, “I love the fact that there was this ‘Thomas Crown Affair,’ Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person.”
Check out the photos of Affleck, Gadot, Eisenberg, Henry Cavill’s Superman, and director Zack Snyder giving Affleck some words of wisdom on set below.
