Batman. Superman. Doomsday. It’s safe to say that both Gotham and Metropolis’s skylines are in danger of being drastically rearranged again in Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The two great DC superheroes are the twin cover stars of this month’s Empire cover below.
The below pictures are high-res versions of the reported leaked pictures with, commentary from Empire's interview with Snyder and others.
“[Batman] is not giving people a chance,” explains producer Charles Roven. “He is more than a vigilante. He has become not only the cop, if you will, he has also become the jury and executioner.” Here he’s also a man with very glowy eyes.
For his part, the Dark Knight is experiencing his own share of (dark k)nightmares. The picture below shows the horrors now haunting the psyche of a character who, Roven stresses, will be markedly different from the Christian Bale iteration. “He’s older,” stresses the producer, “[and] he’s seen the worst of what man can do. He’s been darkened by it, he’s tougher, he’s angrier, I guess.” There’s no Rachel to grieve here, but, adds Roven, “he’s still lost those that are near and dear to him, and not necessarily from old age or disease.”
"To go up against heroes like Batman and Superman, we wanted to introduce one of the DC Universe’s most iconic and powerful villains,” elaborates director Zack Snyder. "He is essentially an unstoppable force. He poses a real threat to the world within the film.”
