New ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ action figures surface


Although many collectors may still have their eye on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Japanese toymaker Medicom is looking ahead to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the unveiling of MAFEX’s Dark Knight and Man of Steel figures.

Standing about 6.3 inches tall, the highly detailed Batman comes equipped with a Batarang, a grappling gun and what looks to be a grenade and an automatic weapon. Superman, meanwhile, gets a display stand to simulate flight.

Official ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ T-shirts arrive


With just a little more than four months until the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Merchoid has unveiled the first officially licensed T-shirts for the Warner Bros. film.

There are four designs (for now, at least): the Batman v Superman logo; a riff on a vintage boxing poster, with “The Gotham Guardian” pitted against “The Last Son of Krypton”; and two propaganda poster-inspired designs, one depicting a skeletal Batman, labeled “Gotham Demon,” and the other showing a crossed-out image of Superman with horns and the words “False God!”

It’s Batman v Superman v Taylor Swift in ‘Bat Blood’


To thank fans for 10 years of animated movie parodies and alternate endings, the folks at How It Should Have Ended went all out, producing a star-studded sendup of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video.

Called — what else? — “Bat Blood,” it lays the groundwork for the face-off between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, along the way dropping perfect lines like “Band-Aids don’t fix building holes.”

Homemade ‘Batman v Superman’ trailer is way more fun than real one


Strangely enough, when you remake the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice using action figures, construction paper and actors in homemade costumes, Zack Snyder’s vision for DC Comics’ greatest superheroes suddenly doesn’t seem so grim. Or desaturated.

How to build your own ‘Batman v Superman’ mech suit

Although plenty of scorn has been heaped on the trailers and promotional images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, most of us can agree the Dark Knight’s mech suit is kind of badass. (I said most of us!) It turns out you don’t need to be a billionaire to have one; you can make it yourself. Just don’t go picking a fight with any Kryptonians. Or anyone else, for that matter.

‘LEGO Batman vs. Superman 2′ kicks the Dark Knight when he’s down


When an annoying, if confused, Dark Knight challenged a baffled, yet patient, Man of Steel last fall in the stop-motion animated short “LEGO Batman vs. Superman,” the confrontation didn’t end well for the Caped Crusader. Not well at all.

Now, nine long months later, Tommy Williamson and BrickNerd Studios have returned with the sequel “LEGO Batman vs. Superman 2: Dawn of Justice Desserts,” which finds the World’s Greatest Detective just as we left him: stuck beneath the overturned Batmobile.

Funko unveils first ‘Batman v Superman’ toys


Funko may have saved the best for last, concluding 10 waves of Comic-Con International exclusives with the debut of the first toys tied to next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

They’re a Pop! Heroes two-pack, featuring bobblehead figures of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel (the former with a Batarang, the latter in flight). Funko isn’t offering a preorder option this year, so collectors will have to wait in line at the convention, and hope supplies hold out.

Is GM’s Camaro Krypton a ‘Batman v Superman’ special edition?


General Motors has filed two trademark applications that have car-industry websites speculating the company may be rolling out an automotive tie-in to the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

GM Authority was the first to pick up on filings by the Detroit giant for “Krypton” and “Camaro Krypton,” for “motor and land vehicles.” While that blog and others note that krypton is the name of a chemical element, the capitalized version is more widely associated with the home planet of Superman.

‘Batman v Superman’ trailer, remade in classic DC animated style


While there already have been numerous parodies of the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, perhaps none is as meticulous as this version by James Strecker. Instead of merely laying the audio track over footage of, say, Christopher Reeve and Adam West in their iconic roles, he recreates the teaser in the style of the DC Animated Universe.

It’s smartly edited, with Strecker pulling dialogue from the animated series and movies to approximate that of Zack Snyder’s trailer.

‘Batman v Superman’ trailer gets a retro makeover


If you had hoped against all hope for a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that wasn’t utterly bleak, you have my condolences. However, YouTube user Bobby Burns has found a way to make the footage a little bit lighter: just add Adam West and Christopher Reeve.

For his parody of the Warner Bros. trailer, Burns retains the sound from the original, but replaces the footage with scenes from the Reeves Superman films and the 1966 Batman movie. Sure, the voiceover is still pretty grim, but it’s difficult not to smile at the Caped Crusader running to dispose of an enormous bomb …

Ben Affleck gives a ‘Batman’ shoutout during Senate hearing


Ben Affleck with Sen. Patrick Leahy

Testifying Thursday on Capitol Hill, actor Ben Affleck reminded senators that, well, he’s Batman — and dropped a minor spoiler about the upcoming Warner Bros. film.

“To Senator Leahy, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my co-star in Batman,” Affleck said, addressing Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont. “The role is marginally smaller than mine but I understand you’re quite good.”

Batman and Superman hurl insults (and Kryptonite) in parody trailer


It’s probably safe to assume that director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be pretty dark (spoilers!), with the Dark Knight going toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel until they begrudgingly form an alliance, comic book-style, against a common foe. However, it might be a refreshing surprise if the World’s Finest duo were instead depicted more like competitive, immature friends whose annoying rivalry has gotten a little out of hand.
