Now I wanna see Gal Gidot in costume, if she has one.
I'm pretty sure she'll be wearing something in the movie (damn it).

Huh, on my phone it really looked like a distorted Joker face. Never mind.
You're not the only person who's said that. I've seen it suggested on other site and when blown up, I can see the Joker-ish face, though I think it's more like a Raimi-style Green Goblin. I think it's just a happy accident with the blurry image, though it would be really cool if it was a deliberate subliminal clue.
Perhaps it's the wheel that gets lost, allowing the Joker to escape.
Snyder has said this Batman is already a veteran crimefighter when we meet him. Maybe it's a reflection of a trophy in the Batcave.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Gotta admit to being pleasantly surprised by the look. Maybe this film will deliver.

On a side note, shouldn't the film be called World's Finest after the Batman/Superman comics?

Too inside. It would have meaning to comics fans, but would be strange and uninformative to the vast majority of moviegoers who aren't versed in comics history.

Besides, WF was a team-up comic. The title of this film is Superman vs. Batman. They're playing up the rivalry. Basically they're copying the Dark Knight Returns version of Batman and his conflict with Superman therein -- which is worrying, because Miller evidently hated Superman and portrayed him in a very unflattering light.

The title of the film hasn't officially been announced yet. Though I don't think they'll use "World's Finest," either.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

The movie is only partly drawing on The Dark Knight Returns. Snyder said this about doing a more direct adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns: "If you were going to do that, you would need a different Superman. We’re bringing Batman into the universe that now this Superman lives in."

Remember that both Lex Luthor and a another Superman villain (presumably Metallo) will both be in MOS 2. I doubt the title will be Batman vs Superman if it features those villains.

It may have a "versus" title if the story has them as antagonists through much of the film and then teaming up at the end.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

^It looks legit & pretty close to what little we've seen in the two Snyder photos.
It also looks like it could somehow fly, half finished like that. I wonder if we'll get a Batmobile/Batplane combo this time, instead of a bike.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

A little Frank Miller, a little Lee Bermejo, a few other influences there but still clearly designed to sit next to Snyder's Superman. I dig it, I dig it more than I dig his take on Superman's duds actually.

^ No biggie. The costume director said that Superman will have a new costume for this movie.

Why do you think the audience is stupid? Superman and Batman on the poster, and the title “World's Finest“, and people get it.

I agree. Though I still don't think it will be called that (much as I'd like it to be).

If that is anything like what the final car will be like then it's WAY better than the Burton version.
