Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is featured on the cover of the March 11th issue of Entertainment Weekly, along with inside the issue itself, with exclusive new promotional photos and interviews with Ben Affleck (Batman) and Henry Cavill (Superman), who grace their own individual covers for the issue.
A handful things are confirmed within the online article for the issue, such as the cameos of The Flash (confirmed in the video below), how Lex makes Doomsdays, Wonder Woman having a major supporting role and the film’s budget being around $250 million.
Affleck on Batman’s anger towards Superman:
“He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman,” Affleck tells EW.
Cavill on not wanting to hurt Batman:
“[Superman’s] weakness is that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone,” says Cavill. “He doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him. This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”
Lex Luthor’s creation of Doomsday in the film:
Luthor not only [slight spoiler alert] orchestrates a mass murder aimed at turning the two heavy hitters against each other but also uses some Kryptonian relics left behind from the Man of Steel aftermath to cook up a cosmic mutant Frankenstein— Doomsday, partially built from the remains of Michael Shannon’s General Zod.
Detail on Wonder Woman’s role in the film:
Although the new film does focus squarely on the battle between the title heroes, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) has a major supporting role, with her alter ego, Diana Prince, running afoul of Bruce Wayne as they engage in rival missions to steal some of Luthor’s most disconcerting secrets. Even before she brandishes a sword and her golden lasso, Wonder Woman’s secret identity is pretty badass.
