New Batman Vs. Superman Details Include Flash, Aquaman & Luthor
Some new details about Batman Vs. Superman are learned from the Comic-Con Experience out of Brazil as costume designer Michael Wilkinson talked about Batman, Superman, Flash, Aquaman and Lex Luthor.
Ezra Miller already confirmed Flash for the movie, but now a new detail is learned in that this version of The Flash won't be as powerful as the other Justice League members.
"He will have a small appearance and will not be as strong as the other Justice League Heroes."
Wilkinson also offered:
“I’m not really at the liberty to talk about The Flash right now, but it’s something that you’ll be seeing in the future in our films. You do get a glimpse of him, of course, in Batman v Superman. But I’m really looking forward to taking the amazing, iconic costume for The Flash and interpreting it in a fresh way where Ezra Miller is playing The Flash. He’s an extraordinary performer, he has a sort of interesting sense of humor and the youth that will be great for Barry Allen and I think he’s going to make a great Flash.”
Wilkinson also teased that Jason Momoa's Aquaman undergoes some sort of change in Batman Vs. Superman that sees him don two costumes.
"...have two uniforms in the movie. "He will start one way and will develop for a different look," says Wilkinson.
Prior to the release of the latest Batman Vs. Superman trailer, WB revealed a scene which saw Superman as a bad guy unmasking Batman. Just as many fans online speculated, it's a dream sequence as Wilkinson confirms it's Batman's nightmare. Note: The costume Batman is wearing in the scene has already been revealed to be "Nightmare Batman" as part of the action figure line, so this news shouldn't come as all that much of a surprise.
... in Wayne's dream, the world turned into a post-apocalyptic wasteland in the style of Mad Max, in which Superman became a despot and have an army of followers, composed of soldiers and by flying beings that appear in the trailer.
“It’s like a dream that Ben has, so we wanted to, it has almost a Mad Max quality to it where it’s like the end of the world, trying to survive and then of course Superman and his minions come, so it’s sort of a way of representing the amazing amounts of, the sort of obsessive quality that Bruce Wayne has about the threat of Superman.”
Wilkinson also confirms that Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will be featured in other DC films, and that the look of Lex will change.
Wilkinson talked about Lex Luthor, revealing that the visual of the villain will evolve over the other films by DC.
