Serious Superman Follows Sad Batman

Warner Brothers released the first promotional image of Henry Cavill as Kal El in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. On the heels of the first image of Ben Affleck as Batman — which quickly became the “Sad Batman” meme — this image is dark and grim enough that fans are starting to get a sense of the film’s tone.


Takeaways: it’s night, raining, and in a city that’s intact. Which means not Metropolis. Probably Gotham. Does this suggest the inevitable confrontation between the two DC icons will take place on Batman’s turf?

And what will the first Wonder Woman image be like?
