Here are new hi-res images from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, released by Warner Bros. For those who have already seen the lower resolution images from the upcoming Zack Snyder joint, this is all old news, but there’s plenty of detail to be gleaned for those who are getting their first glimpse. First of all, there’s Jesse Eisenberg‘s hair, and his gothic office, which could have doubled as a set from Hannibal. And then, of course, there’s that image of Henry Cavill‘s Superman getting touched by face-painted onlookers as if he were the Lord himself, touching on one of Snyder’s most favored themes, namely belief and religion. Beyond that, it’s mostly steely Batman (Ben Affleck) imagery, with the notable exception of the image of Affleck’s Bruce Wayne sidling up to Gal Gadot‘s Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, which teases a possible romantic subplot that might give some spice to what will surely be a whole lot of brooding and brawling.

Here’s the official synopsis for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice:
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
