BATMAN V SUPERMAN's Wonder Woman Debuts at SDCC 2014
So skeptical fanboys, Gal Gadot actually looks like a decent Wonder Woman. Imagine that.
Inside the holy geek shrine known as Hall H at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014, Warner Bros. treated DC Comics fans in attendance to 3D renders of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman before a brief teaser clip played featuring a tense confrontation between Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill). Director Zack Snyder was joined on stage by those two actors along with Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot.
According to various sources including Coming Soon and Empire, the panel began with concept art from the film that featured quick shots of Batman standing by his Batmobile, a shot of Superman stumbling out of a ship in what appeared to be an Arctic tundra while carrying someone in his arms, followed by the brief teaser clip.
Set at night in pouring rain, the teaser begins on a rooftop with Ben Affleck’s Batman in full armor similar to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, including glowing eyes, pulling a tarpaulin off the Bat Signal (which features Miller's design of the Batman logo). It shines into the sky, and then, illuminated against the clouds, flecked with lightning, standing inside the symbol, is Henry Cavill’s Superman. Superman doesn't appear happy, as his eyes glow red with building heat vision. The camera focuses on Batman’s face as he grimaces just before the film's title comes up.
Afterwards, Snyder brought out Cavill, Affleck and Gadot to say a quick hello as the first look of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman appeared around the auditorium. You can check out the full picture below...
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016.
