USA Today debuted a new character poster of Superman for his upcoming movie, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it looks as dark, gritty (and depressing?) as the first Man of Steel movie. They also talked to director, Zack Snyder, about the character and the film.
Man of Steel was all about Superman finding his place in the world as both a hero and as a man, ultimately saving the city of Metropolis from certain doom. Dawn of Justice continues to immerse him on Earth by working at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent along with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). But it also takes him to new environments such as Gotham City and introduces larger threats, including Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).
Snyder also mentioned Wonder Woman who’s being played Gal Gadot. She’s probably the most scrutinized of all the characters given her role as the most visible female superhero in pop culture and BvS being her first big screen debut.
Similarly, Snyder also knows that putting the iconic superheroine Wonder Woman on a movie screen is a big deal, too. He says he hasn’t filmed any scenes with Gadot as the Amazonian princess yet, but “she’s working out and getting buff and ripped.”
