Since we don’t have too much in the way of official images of Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a fan took matters into his own hands and created an amazing poster for the film. The image shows how the two big superheroes would look like when they meet for the first time, perhaps in Gotham City.
The poster uses the image of Henry Cavill in his Superman costume, which Warner Bros. released recently, to the delight of millions of fans that had been waiting to catch a glimpse of the Brit in the Zack Snyder sequel. It’s a rainy, dark night in Gotham City and Supes has come to find Ben Affleck’s Batman.
If you watched the original, Man Of Steel, then you know what Henry Cavill looks like in his suit — which is pretty much all we know for certain at this point — and Zack Snyder shared the first official image of Affleck in his new role on Twitter back in May.

Put both together and you end up with something like this. Henry Cavill, aka Superman, comes to visit Ben Affleck (Batman) one rainy night.
As great as this poster is, we can finally expect some more news when Comic Con kicks-off in San Diego later this month, and we may see Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck answering questions at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice panel. Cavill and Snyder were there in 2012, at the Man Of Steel panel.
In other news, Latino Review is reporting that Affleck’s will not use one, but two different suits for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:
“The more interesting thing I’ve heard is that Batman will actually wear two batsuits in the film, but where as Grey-and-Blue has already been designed and Affleck has worn it, the second Batsuit is more armored like the one in the Dark Knight Returns and Kingdom Come comics.”
“The plating is silver/white. The plates are attached to a black undercloth. The plates doesn’t cover his entire body. We see the black undercloth at the joints. Supposedly, it looks incredible. Equally, or maybe even better-looking than the other suit and it’s leagues above and beyond Bale’s suit from what I’m told.”
No news regarding Henry Cavill’s suit and whether we will see anything different from the one he used in Man Of Steel, but it wouldn’t be surprising is they gave him a new look. After all, he has to kick Batman’s butt, right?
We may yet see some kind of photoshoot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, considering cinematographer Larry Fong posted this on his Twitter last week. It shows the film’s official photographer, Clay Enos, on set and shared his feelings about the “historic” moment:

Many conclude that the “moment” refers to the much awaited photoshoot that includes both Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in full garb. No additional details were shared, so we will have to patiently wait until the photos come out — or leak. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently in production in Detroit and lands in theaters on May 6, 2016.
