Last night Star Wars came into Hall H and dominated with an incredible display of nostalgia that had audiences reeling. Well today at the DC panel they dropped bomb after bomb stealing the show from all that preceded it. The star of the show was Batman v Superman, and it did not disappoint. Leading the way with a brand new full trailer that shocked and awed!
Check out the trailer!
Wow.. Just wow. Leaving Hall H buzzing and brimming with excitement, that trailer was absolutely incredible!
Now as for the rest of the highlights from the DC panel, There was much to be shared given the amount of properties planned in the DC universe coming up and the panels were ripe with details.Firstly, yes there will be multiple Green Lanterns cast in the next Green Lantern film, and the it will be titled The Green Lantern Corps. So its all about the different iterations of the Lanterns on earth and the covenant that is the corps which is pretty cool to think about.
The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad was released and it feature Harley Quinn in her cell at Belle Reve, and of course glimpses at all the rest of the villains. The best part is the first look at The Joker as he tortures some poor random soul. All the news surrounding the trailer is that Suicide Squad has a chance to be DC’s Guardians of the Galaxy except with villains, and easily the darkest in tone since The Dark Knight!
After Suicide Squad cleared the stage and thats when the BVS cast and crew stepped on stage and premiered the new trailer! We got our first real look at Wonder Woman and a great look at Affleck as Bruce Wayne and Batman, but what got to us is how incredible Jesse Eisenberg looked as Lex Luthor! He looked and sounded incredible and this promises to be one of the most epic Comic Book films of all time! We even see Luthor menacing over kryptonite and General Zod’s dead body. Affleck and Cavill then had some great insights into film.
Cavil on Christopher Reeve:
“For me, Christopher Reeve was so amazing. So going anywhere near him was dangerous. So I just tried to stay true to what Zack and the comics gave me.”
Ben Affleck then tells a great Batman story:
“I was at a comics shop with my son and we were looking at Batman comics and I heard a voice and looked over and it was Christian Bale! So there we were standing there in a comics shop, in the Batman aisle… I asked him if he had any advice and he said: “Make sure you can piss in the suit.”
We then got a sizzle reel for all the upcoming films from DC and some great concept art of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Cyborg, and The Green Lantern.
Check out the photos from the panel!!
