We have a couple of new tidbits regarding Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. First up, Weta visual effects supervisors Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon have confirmed to Collider that the company is working on the next DC Comics adaptation. “We are working on the Man of Steel sequel, yes… We can’t say much more than that, but we’re excited.” Weta previously worked on the Krypton opening sequence in Man of Steel, and is known for its work in franchises such as Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes. So, it will be exciting to see what they bring to the table for Batman v. Superman. For an update on The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, click the link above.
In other Dawn of Justice news, we have an official glimpse of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on the set of the film. Royal Marines Charitable Trust Funds posted the following image on its Twitter account, featuring the Superman actor supporting the organization. Cavill is suited up in what looks to be his Kent wardrobe, despite the lack of glasses. It’s not as exciting as seeing his “tweaked” Superman suit for the Man of Steel follow-up, but hopefully, we’ll get a look at that soon too.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theaters May 6th, 2016. A follow-up to Man of Steel, the second installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne. Zack Snyder directs from a script by David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio.
