Exclusive Batman v Superman Footage, Cast Confirmed for San Diego Comic Con
After leaving fans hanging with their mysterious panel description on Comic Con's Saturday schedule, Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that Batman v Superman will be making an appearance at San Diego Comic Con next week. The panel will feature footage from the film, and appearances from the all-star cast, including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Godot.

There's no word on whether the footage will be the first full trailer or a clip, but we hope it's the latter. Although, honestly, the fact that there will definitely be new footage unveiled is more than enough, and confirms that this panel will be one of the biggest Hall H moments of the weekend.



And as for star power, love-him-or-hate-him Zack Snyder will be in attendance, along with cast members Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Godot (Wonder Woman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), and Holly Hunter, who plays a U.S. Senator. These are just the confirmed cast members, however, so there's still a chance that Snyder will surprise the audience by finally uniting the full Justice League by bringing out Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, Ezra Miller, who plays The Flash, Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg, and possibly announcing multiple Green Lanterns.

Here's Warner Bros.'s statement from the official press release:

Opening quote
Keen to deliver a taste of one of next year's most eagerly awaited pairings, director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill take the main stage with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." They are joined by castmates Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot for a sneak peek at the 2016 action adventure that brings the Super Heroes together on the big screen for the very first time, from Warner Bros. Pictures and RatPac-Dune Entertainment.
Closing quote


Warner Bros. also confirmed that the Henry Cavill-starring spy adventure Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the Hugh Jackman-starring Pan will be presented at the panel. The panel is only an hour and a half, so this makes us concerned that Suicide Squad may not make an appearance at all. It would be extremely disappointing if that were true, as we were hoping to see the first footage at the event. But then again, there's always the chance that Jared Leto would throw live rats or dead pigs at us, so it's kind of a wash. 

The official synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reads:

Opening quote
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before.
Closing quote


The Warner Bros. panel will begin at 10:30 am on Saturday, July 11 in Hall H. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released in theaters on March 25, 2016.
