    ^ Spectacular.

    I love the writing and symbols on the sword (though of course I have no idea what they mean; ancient Greek perhaps?).

    Still no sign of the cape we saw in the preproduction art earlier. But then it looks like she's already got more than enough stuff to carry around with her as it is.

    It's so ungainly-looking that it's probably all CGI.

    Hey, the Batmobile uses an F-16 flight stick for...something.

    I'm really liking the Batman & Wonder Woman costumes. I wonder if we'll get any kind of look at the full Aquaman costume before the movie is released?

    Or they decided it was unnecessary and dropped the cape.

    Or it was something she wears for a couple of minutes in the film.

    Those inscriptions on Diana's sword echo writing dating back to 5th Century BCE....

    That's interesting, since the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman was born in the 6th century BCE, according to the second-season premiere of her show.

    Ooh, I wonder if the Batmobile can dock with the Batwing, so that's the flight control stick. Look at the back of the Batwing, and it kind of looks like the wheels of the Batmobile might be in there, and a hollow "garage" like structure might be at the back.

    Also, notice how the Batwing mimics the dual-spoiler structure on top rear of the Batmobile (and the forward-mounted gun). It's like he pulls into the bigger version but wants similar functionality.

    Also, the weird design of the Batwing might be because it's also the Batboat. Look at that central pod. It sure looks like a boat to me. I wonder if all of Batman's vehicles can combine into one. It's a bit fanboyish, I know, but it would explain the odd design, the mimicked structures, and the separate flight yoke in the Batmobile.



    As an aside, not that it should come as any surprise given the overall tone of Man of Steel and the trailer for Dawn of Justice, but Batman clearly doesn't have a no killing rule in this film judging by the two guys he vaporizes here:

    Of course, Nolan's Batman, despite claiming to have a no-killing rule too, also killed the driver of the truck in TDKR with the machine guns on the Bat (and countless ninjas in the League monastery). Not that I have a problem with that, mind you, since desperate times call for desperate measures and what not, but I just thought I'd put that out there for consideration. Burton-era Batman killed people without a second thought.

    Oy, I'm so sick of American action movies' fetish for killing. If Batman is willing to kill, and Superman is willing to kill, what are they fighting over? And why should we root for either of them?

    This is the Batman we want, right? "Grit", "realism", "mature"...right?!?!


    ugh

    Any number of ideological differences that don't revolve around their decision to kill or not?

    Right.

    That probing question pretty much ignores every rationale and motivation for something we on Earth call "war."

    The usual incessant whining about him snapping Zod's neck, and "allowing" half of Metropolis to be destroyed during the battle.
