And Now, Here’s Your First Look at ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Ben Affleck and his villainous chin are starring in the upcoming epic superhero movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so let’s forget about Hollywood’s biggest divorce news for a quick second to take a look at the leading man as Batman, Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Lux Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).

Courtesy exclusively of Entertainment Weekly, we finally get a look at Eisenberg’s platinum blonde hair as Luthor, the actual villain of the film.

Then there’s Cavill, who’s reprising his 2013 Man of Steel role as Superman, and the beautiful Gal Gadot, aka Wonder Woman (she’ll also be starring in 2017’s Wonder Woman).

Meanwhile Affleck, who will also be playing Batman in the upcoming Suicide Squad (2016), isn’t letting his divorce get him too down and out of any public appearances: he’s slated to appear at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month.

Of the character, Affleck told EW, “Batman is basically the American version of Hamlet. We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations.”

For example, Batman’s been played by Adam West, George Clooney, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and most recently, Christian Bale.

However, his Batman is much older than Bale’s Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy. “He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life,” Affleck commented. “There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will also star Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Ezra Miller as The Flash.

So who’s excited?
