SDCC 2014: Wonder Woman from ‘Batman v Superman’ Revealed!

Currently going on as I type, the Warner Bros panel at SDCC 2014 is full of twists, turns and surprises.

The panel kicked off with surprise appearances by the director and stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).

In addition to showing some footage which sounded appropriately Dark Knight Returns-esq, Snyder took to Twitter to reveal, finally, how Gadot will appear as the third part of the DC Trinity – Wonder Woman.

You can see her above, and I can’t argue, it looks good. The colorful tones are definitely muted, more gold than her standard red, white and blue – but she fits into the new theatrical DC Universe, if not also appearing a bit 300-esq.

I like it.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

SDCC 2014: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Concept Art Revealed

As we discussed earlier this week in the Daily Blast, Marvel has been giving out concept art posters from Avengers: Age of Ultron at their booth at Comic-Con International this weekend.

Today brings the release of the final two posters – Hulk and Thor – and with the release, we can now see that the image combined makes one amazing piece of Avengers vs. Ultron concept art, complete with a sneaky peak at Vision.

You can click the above image to make it larger, and see all the fun little details.

I’d imagine we’ll be seeing more from Avengers: Age of Ultron at tonight’s Marvel Studios panel. So, stay tuned.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
