I’d say pardon the pun title, but I’d be lying if I said I was sorry for doing it. Empire magazine has been gifted with a handful of new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shots both from the film and behind-the-scenes, which have now been shared with the world at large. While we don’t get a glimpse of characters that we haven’t seen yet, we do get a better look out a chunk of the main cast.
My favorite shot is the delightful one of Ben Affleck in costume and conversing with director Zack Snyder behind the equipment. The thought of Ben directing his own solo Batfilm in a few years time while dressed as Batman gives me the giggles, so to catch a small glimpse of something similar here makes me grin like an idiot. I am utterly filled with joy at such a wonderfully ludicrous sight. Check out the gallery below!
