Dawn of Dawn of Justice

Dawn of Dawn of Justice

While considerably shorter than the Age of Ultron footage Marvel shared, DC and Warner Bros did their own bedazzling with a note-perfect teaser trailer from Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Borrowing heavily from both the plot and the visual milieu of Frank Miller’s seminal The Dark Night Returns series, Comic-Con attendees were treated to arresting, rain-soaked glimpses of Bruce Wayne decked out in his bulkiest britches and going toe to toe with the Man of Steel, whose heat vision gives him quite a reach advantage.

The crowd also got a look at a brand new Bat-signal design and the world’s first glimpse of actress/model/former Israeli soldier Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, whose new costume is sure to spark many a conversation. The only thing missing, it appears, like it is from all Zack Snyder films, is a rich color palette. Even the cheapest comic books were made with four hues, sir, and you’ve got waaaay more budget to play with than them.

He's also a history major, a hockey and football fanatic and a music nerd of the highest order. In other words, you want him on your pub trivia team. Seven year old Mike once received a letter from DC Comics encouraging him to "keep drawing and maybe you'll work for us someday!" His grade school library published a Dungeons & Dragons-inspired book he wrote at 12, and he's never looked back. Since then, he has worked in creative or strategic roles at college radio stations and newspapers, record companies, music magazines, dens of Internet iniquity, budding media empires, global telecommunications outfits and software development consultancies, with each stop allowing him to turn his hobbies into a job. Call him the Vice President of (Arrested) Business Development. Mike lives in Toronto, Canada with his patient wife and their five year old, superhero-obsessed son. Among their prized possessions are a NM copy of X-Men #94, a replica of the Shakespeare bust from the Batman TV show and a Death Star cookie jar.
