After watching what was probably the most anticipated trailer in all of DC Comics history, my anticipation for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has just increased ten fold... and judging by the reaction all over the internet, I'm sure I cant be the only one.
So in true [#FanArtFriday](tag:2798620) fashion and in an attempt to subdue the almost criminal urge to personally track down Zack Snyder for more sneak peeks, I thought it would a cool idea to go out on the hunt to see how other DC devotees have envisioned what this momentous film might look like.
What I found did not disappoint!
1. A View From Above
Whilst not exactly geographically possible, this has to be one of the most staggeringly beautiful pieces of Batman V Superman art out there and really highlights how far The Dark Knight will go just to get a message across to Kal El. Props go to MessyPandas for this one!
2. When Push Comes to Shove
Ok so Bats isn't in his Exo-Suit...I can't say I'd be putting my money on him anytime soon, unless he's wielding a baseball bat made out of kryptonite out of shot. I love Superman's facial expression in this one! Check out Lehanan's page for more awesomeness!
3. A Bold Logo Redesign
This logo design is very reminiscent of of what Tim Burton had in mind for his unfortunately (some say fortunate) abandoned Superman Lives project that was to star Nicholas Cage as none other than Supes himself. Check out Ryan Derrick's page for more!
4. Watercolour Sadman
When we all got our first glimpse of what Batfleck would look like in his suit, many of us were left a little underwhelmed. The picture garnered a few tragic nicknames too, ranging from "Sadman" all the way to "Fatman"! The drips on this watercolour seem to accentuate the sadness! Check out the man behind the brush - Miguel Gutierrez!
5. The Final Showdown
Anyone who was not a fan of Snyder's "washed out" look will be delighted with this neon explosion. Batman still manages to look brooding even in all this technicolor! Cainulgen did an awesome job on this!
6. Hidden Kryptonite
For those who argue that Batman could never overcome Superman's superior strength, take a look at The Dark Knight's knuckles! You can see more of Skyrace's work here.
7. The Trinity
Hopefully, once all of the brawling is out of the way, we will see the trinity unite like as powerful a pose as this! Art by Danthemanfantastic.
8. Collage of Justice
If you thought the most recent Avengers poster won the award for number of people in one promotional piece then you'd be wrong! Tom Gosling tastefully crams em in!
9. Back To Back
Undoubtably one of the most striking fan-made posters out there! Check out more of Abdudavids work here!
10. Frank Minimalist
This one has Frank Miller written all over it! Dark Knight Returns vibes all over the shop! Love it! Kiwi Benjamin Richards knocked it out the park on this one!
So... let's address the elephant in the room...Star Wars is coming out soon too...and it's going to be HUGE! But even this dynamic duo are fans of DC! They were fooling no one in this get up at last years Comic-Con though... London's own Steve Berrington has managed to meld both worlds in the best way possible!
