Today was a BIG day at San Diego Comic Con (#SDCC)! Warner Bros had quite a panel in Hall H that featured Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) who will star in the highly anticipated ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ next spring.
Warner Bros shared the above picture of their two stars on twitter:

Of course Ben got more than his fair share of attention, since he and Jennifer Garner announced their decision to divorce just last week. However, he focused on his role as Batman rather than his personal life when talking to the audience. He talked about how he handled taking on such an iconic role.
If I thought too hard about the actors who played the part before, I couldn’t take the job. George Clooney did great, Christian Bale … I talked to Zack and I was like are you sure, you know? And he said I have this vision, I have this idea for the guy and you’re perfect for it. What do you mean? [He’s at] the end of his rope, he’s a burn out [laughs] … The truth was that he took me through he process of creating this character that I quite almost didn’t see and at the end of it I was astonished … That was exactly what you pitched me and I wasn’t sure I was doing it.
“Before I started the movie I was getting my kid’s Halloween costume and my son is really into Batman and we went to a costume store in Los Angeles and it was pretty empty and I was in the aisle and I hear this ‘Oi.’
“I turned around, it’s Christian Bale who’s the sweetest guy ever and there he and I are standing in the Batman [aisle]. I said look man you’re the best, what do you think? [He said] ‘Make sure you could piss in that suit.’
“Christian Bale was also buying his son the suit. He doesn’t just hang out [in the Batman aisle].”
Well, that’s good to hear- LOL.
The best thing about this appearance, however, is that Warner Bros has also released the first full trailer for ‘Batman V Superman’! Check it out below. We even get to see Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Can Not WAIT for the Wonder Woman movie, which is due out in 2017. Meanwhile, we can enjoy this trailer. I’m also looking forward to this. Are you?
