At San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, director Zack Snyder shared the first photos of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Finally getting some much deserved screen time in Batman v. Superman, Wonder Woman is one of many comic woman who takes being a heroine to the next level.

Warner Brothers finally confirmed the rumors—the Justice League is coming to the big screen. Either in 2018 or summer 2017 (those details are still debatable), the film will be following the Man of Steel sequel in 2016. Greg Silverman, Warner Brothers Pictures president referred to the Man of Steel sequel as Superman Vs. Batman, so intentionally or not it seems we also have an official spoiler for the title.

The Justice League film will be directed by Zack Snyder, starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Henry Cavill as Superman. Currently, the production for Superman Vs. Batman suggests there’ll be a possible overlap in filming to accommodate dual production schedules (Cavil is probably going to awfully tired of spandex after all that).

What if I told you that Superman was not actually a disappointing superhero based on his intentions?  During Boston Comic Con 2013, a DC Comics panel, hosted by a few big artists and writers, sparked some interesting notes about the intentions of Superman.  Scott Snyder, who currently writes a Superman comic entitled Superman Unchained made a bold statement basically saying that Superman may not be the hero Earth needed after all.

Shown at the San Diego Comic-Con, 2013’s Man of Steel trailers are now available for your viewing pleasure! Both trailers show the same thing, but the first is voiced by Kevin Costner (who plays Jonathan Kent) and the second is voiced by Russell Crowe (who plays Superman’s biological father, Jor-El). Based on both previews, it seems that this Superman film will focus heavily on who Clark is as an individual, as Costner says, “One day you’re gonna have to make a choice. You have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Who that man is, good character of bad, he is going to change the world.”

I’m looking forward to this new direction that director Zack Snyder is taking to the Superman film franchise. Making a movie about a super hero who can do anything is no easy task; it doesn’t leave room for many surprises. Focusing on what Superman stands for, rather than what he can do, will be a nice change of pace, and I truly hope that Snyder can deliver the experience that all fans of the man of steel have been dying for.
