Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill Make Surprise Appearance at Comic-Con to Screen First Look at Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
You didn’t think Warner Bros. was going to let Marvel have all the fun today, did you?
Fanboys who held out hope that the WB would have some sort Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice surprise in store for their Comic-Con presentation this morning got more than they could have ever asked for.
The studio made no new announcements about the growing cast of their DC world (no official word on Jason Momoa as Aquaman or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Shazam just yet), but they did trot out Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot for their first joint appearance as Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively. Justice League, assemble!

Even before they hit Hall H, director Zach Snyder made sure his superhero movie was the talk of Comic-Con, revealing another look at Ben Affleck in his Batman cowl and, today, a first look at Wonder Woman’s revamped costume.
And if that wasn’t enough, Snyder—who’s still actually filming the movie—screened the very first footage of Dawn of Justice for those in attendance. Here’s what they saw (via Superhero Hype):
Batman is standing on a Gotham rooftop in the rain…His costume isn’t what we’ve seen already. It’s big and bulky, like his armor in The Dark Knight Returns. His eye light up, solid white. He’s moving a tarp, revealing the bat signal. He turns it on and the camera tracks up to the sky. Superman is there, hovering in the light. He doesn’t look happy. His eyes light up with heat vision as he glares at Batman. The title come up!
T-minus six hours until we see if the Avengers can top that…
