The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic-Con panel recap was one of the most highly anticipated panels of this year’s Con.  We also expected it to be this year’s closer for Warner Bros. panel.  “The Grand Finale,” of their presentation, if you will.  Instead, the studio decided to make the day explode by showing the first footage from the superhero movie.  And it did not disappoint.

Hit the jump for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic-Con panel recap.

batman-v-superman-henry-cavillThe panel began with Warner Bros. using the biggest side-screens they’ve ever used – they encompassed half the sides of the hall – and they used all of them to showcase a collection of concept art, glimpsed through flashes of lightning to see the two heroes in their glory.  We saw Batman and the glowing eyes of his battle suit.  We saw Superman carrying the body of a young woman on an alien landscape with a downed spacecraft behind him.  We couldn’t put any story together from it, but we definitely knew what was happening when the wide screens were used to show the two heroes staring each other down.

Then the lights came up and director Zack Snyder took the stage.  He told us that they were just shooting last night, but they still came here today.  Snyder did a nice little tease for the audience about how they hadn’t shot very much, he knows footage is expected but…Oh, they have a little something…

*Crowd loses mind.  Might start rampaging if they don’t get footage.*

“But we have a little teaser,” says Snyder.

Footage

It’s pouring down rain in the night sky.  Batman is an armored suit, his eyes glowing, and standing next to the Bat-Signal.  He pulls down a switch and powers it up.  The Bat-Signal (bearing the new Bat-Symbol) blasts into the sky.  We pan to follow the light, but in the sky, floating in front of the signal, is Superman.  His arms are crossed.  His cape billows in the wind.  Batman, with his mask’s glowing eyes, stares down the Man of Steel.  And the Man of Steel stares back.  His eyes begin to glow red.  Cut back to the Dark Knight.  He is unmoved.  Cut to black.

After the lights come up, Snyder brings on Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot.  There are individual posters for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman on the side screens.  They wave hello, and then we get to see the footage again, and then we’re done.

But if you’re going to open Saturday on Comic-Con, a day where people were waiting in line over a day before the doors opened, this was a great way to do it.

    The hype for BVS is getting bigger

    The way Bats didn’t move an inch when Sups’ eyes glow red, I NEED TO SEE THIS NOW!!!!! :D I still hope they’re gonna announce the full DCCU plans.

    So WB basically stole comic con this year w a film that’s 2 years away from being released? Nice. It’s a nice change that’s good to keep Marvel, Fox and Sony on their toes.

    • tonymatthews

      Marvel’s Panel is still pending, hold your fanboy horses.

    • vpuik

      Hardly…

      Edit: After sitting through both panels, BvS didn’t seem to leave much impact. The footage and cast visit was so brief that people barely had time to out get excite about it. It seemed like marvel panel got almost the same hollers before the panel even started. WB didn’t steal anything in the hall, but then again most batman fans didn’t bother attending.

      I’m sure next year will be different when they have some footage to show.

    • RiddleThemThis

      I think its because WB is delivering something a bit different from what we’re used to. I’m not saying that Marvel is doing a bad job with their films but they’ve been delivering the same product over and over.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        Yea I’m not a Marvel vs. DC kinda person but I do want their to be good competition against each studio as it forces the others to come up w more inventive ways to keep the genre fresh. And quite honestly only WB has a large enough selection to really compete w Marvel Studios as Fox and Sony only have a few heroes to choose from.

    • BigJimSlade

      What did WB steal Comic Con with? The Wonder Woman disappointment?

      I’m hearing more positive stuff about the Warcraft logo, GotG, Mad Max, and of course Age of Ultron. Heck, Kevin Smith’s Tusk trailer has me more more excited over anything we’ve seen from the sequel to the fairly unimpressive Superman.

      A decade from now, none of these character interpretations will even exist or be remembered. This whole reboot is just something to keep us occupied until the next one.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        Yea I’m gonna have to disagree w you as BVS is even making headlines on CNN/Fox/Yahoo News and Entertainment weekly – including WW’s new look. Marvel disapointed this year as they anounced nothing new w the exception to GOTG 2. No DD custume, no Dr. Strange casting, no other MCU films for Phase III (is it Hulk? GOTG2? or something new?).

    Gal looks stunning, and they made the WW outfit look iconic rather than cheesy. Well done. Everything looks great so far. I’ll wait to judge the acting when I see the damn movie.

    And to all those who keep griping about how Gal doesn’t have a “big enough frame” to play WW, or how “she needs to eat something,” just stop. WW can go toe to toe in a fight with Superman. You think that power comes from her muscles? No, her power is mystical in origin, so she doesn’t need to look like a female bodybuilder or Gina Carino. Most DC artists haven’t drawn her with the physique of She-Hulk. My personal favorite version is actually the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited look for her: fit and beautiful. Gal is obviously both.

    And for those who keep saying she doesn’t look like WW because her boobs aren’t big enough–grow the hell up.

    • cloud720

      Then why does superman need to look like a bodybuilder if his powers don’t come from his muscles?

      • demonicstrawberry

        Superman’s powers come from how our sun affects his body, which would include his muscles, yes. But no, he doesn’t “need” to look like a bodybuilder, either. While both Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh were in outstanding shape, neither had bodybuilder physiques. Yet both of them looked the part. I have no complaints that Cavill is very much more ripped, but neither do I think the character “needs” to be so.

        And neither does Wonder Woman.

      • sintheticreality2

        Because it would look dumb if he looked like an accountant.

  • gar216

    Gal looks great. I have nothing bad to say about her look for the film. It isn’t traditional wonder woman, but it fits. She looks like a warrior.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Gal looks pretty much like I was hoping WW would look. The boots don’t look particularly comfortable to fight crime in and I love bare shoulders, so the strap is kind of disappointing, but those are only minor complaints.

    • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

      Yeah, the high heels are the only thing that I don’t get. I know many iterations of WW have had them, but if you’re trying to ground a movie in reality, maybe start with a group of Amazonian warriors choosing suitable gear for battle? Looks good overall though, even if she is so damned petite.

    • ThisGuy

      I assume the strap is for her sword sheath.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Oh yeah. Definitely. It would have to go somewhere (also looks like lasso is attached to the strap). I just would prefer it attach to her belt instead.

  • World’s Finest Comments

    So Nikki Finke just lost a lot of credibility. That or Warner Bros changed their plans just to spite her.

  • AManWithAKilt

    Looks nice but then the problem with Zach Snyder’s films have rarely been the visuals.

    • https://soundcloud.com/soup_herman soup, herman?

      So true, which is why Chris Terrio will save this franchise if he can salvage David Goyers awful dialogue.

  • Strong Enough

    WOOOOOOOO! I’m pumped for this more than Avengers

  • DEADP00L

    Meh…Gal Gadot is just going to take up space that could be giving us more Batman time.

    So…Batman stole Tony Starks war machine? …oh For Gods sakes I’m getting really sick of robots lately.

    • Kpaqu1

      The Batman suit is based on The Dark Knight Returns which came out in 1986. War Machine first appeared in Iron Man 282 in 1992. So by your logic Tony Stark is the thief. Plus, neither is a robot, they are powered armor suits.

      • DEADP00L

        That’s like saying Pacific rim wasnt a giant robot monster movie…or Robocrap wasnt actually a Robot.

        Robot suit is a Robot just like a drone is still an aircraft even with no human inside piloting it.

        This is ridiculous, X-men had robots, transformers which had no robots, Shredder is a robot and now Batman is in one. And Avengers …nothing but robots everywhere apparently.

      • Anna

        Then don’t watch it if you’re so picky..

      • DEADP00L

        What does what you just said have anything to do with what I wrote? It’s called an observation. It’s got nothing to do with watching the movie…just wow.

  • DougW

    Alexandra Daddario should be playing Wonder Woman.

    • Strong Enough

      you just want to see her boobs

  • Jamesy

    Full trailer footage, don’t know how long this will be up for so check it out asap.

    I have to admit that despite my doubts, Gadot at least looks the part of Wonder Woman. Now we’ll just have to see the performance itself. Still more interested in seeing what Luthor ends up looking like, not to mention Aquaman and Cyborg.

  • DEADP00L

    Another reason I really wish Gal Gadot wasn’t WonderWoman. The only female character other than Big Barta to hold her own and all people are going to think of is nailing her.

    Totally not what I wanted for WonderWoman.
