Along with these new images we learn some new things about how Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came about and why Batman goes up against Superman.

Zack Snyder told EW that the first time he pitched the idea, he was in a meeting with franchise co-captains Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. “I said, ‘What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor,’” said Snyder. “Everyone was like…‘Okaay.’ Once you say it out loud it’s a problem because you can’t unsay it.”

Ben Affleck also talks about playing an older, wearier Batman. “He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,” says Affleck. “But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical.” Worried that Superman’s unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.

Excited yet?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice battle in theaters on March 25, 2016.
