(Warning - very mild SPOILERS for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may lie below...)

Now, in recent years, we've seen a whole lot of romance blossom between two of DC's premier superheroes - in the comic-books at least. While Superman and Wonder Woman have been opening their hearts to one another on the page, though, DC's cinematic outings have so-far stuck to a more old-school romantic entanglement - that of Superman and Lois Lane.

With that not exactly looking set to change in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though, could a new romance be set to be kindled?

Well, from the looks of the latest set picture from the film, it just might. Y'see:

It Sure Looks Like Batman and Wonder Woman Are Flirting Up a Storm

Which, since the pair are two-thirds of DC's 'Holy Trinity' would - if it ends up being more than just the implication of a promo image - be pretty huge news. Though that, seeing as comic-book writers have been having them do that for years...

...might not actually be as much of a surprise as it initially seems.

Even if not, though, the two's visible acquaintance might just suggest that the movie is set to pit the pair against Superman together - at least in part.

Could Batman v Superman, then, be set to take the DC universe in a very different direction to what we're expecting? Well, Ben Affleck's latest comments to EW about the nature of his take on Batman might just suggest that'll be the case:

“He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life...There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”

An aging, world-weary Batman teaming up (and becoming involved) with a youthful Wonder Woman, and battling a widely hated Superman?

That sure would make for an interesting spin on the mythos...

What do you think, though?
