There has been no shortage of publicity for the upcoming DC movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice recently, with a new trailer, TV spots, and poster all arriving in the past week. Now some new images from the film have been released–check them out in the gallery below, via Collider:
Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder, and sees Henry Cavill’s Superman face off against Ben Affleck’s Batman. Wonder Woman will feature too, alongside Lex Luthor and monstrous bad guy Doomsday.
Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot spoke to Empire recently about the role that her character plays in the movie. She told the magazine that the Amazon princess is over 5,000 years old, and essentially comes out of “retirement” at the start of Dawn of Justice. “She’s seen it all,” she said. “She has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”
Gadot also revealed that the initial auditions for the movie were clouded in mystery, with producers not revealing what role she was being tested for. “I mean, I could have guessed,” she admits. “[But]I thought it was going to be Selina (Kyle, aka Catwoman), you know?”
“I only knew what role it was when I flew in to test with Ben,” she said. “I was very excited. Anytime I had general meetings in LA, I always said that my dream role was to do an empowered, independent woman who doesn’t rely on men.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, 2016. It also stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Laurence Fishburne.
