The first Batman v Superman image of Henry Cavill on the set has arrived. Production is currently underway on director Zack Snyder’s follow-up to last year’s Superman reboot Man of Steel, though instead of a direct Superman sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is really more of a set-up for Justice League. Regardless, one imagines Cavill’s Superman still plays a major role in the proceedings, and this new green screen-filled image gives us a first look at Cavill in costume as Clark Kent in the new superhero pic. Admittedly it’s not incredibly revealing, but those itching to see anything and everything from the DC Comics adaptation will likely enjoy poring over every detail. Confirmed: Clark Kent does carry an over-the-shoulder bag.
Hit the jump to check out the Batman v Superman image. The film also stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, and Jeremy Irons. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
This new Batman v Superman image comes courtesy of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund’s Twitter, which is an organization in the UK for currently serving and retired Royal Marines and their families. Cavill is a supporter of the organization, leading to the unveiling of this new Clark Kent image.
While rumors have abounded about the Batman v Superman plot, we really don’t have much by way of firm info despite the fact that the film has been in production for over a month. The title suggests that Ben Affleck’s Batman will go toe-to-toe with Supes, but I’m encouraged by this first-look image that suggests we’ll still follow some of the exploits of Clark Kent.
