New Batman v Superman Photos Feature Wonder Woman, Alfred, and That Robin Suit
Batman v Superman is looming closer and closer, and now we have brand-new photos of the biggest superhero showdown of the year (at least until Civil War, that is).

Most of these stills are shots from the many, many trailers, but there are a few new images here and there, including one of that Joker-graffitied Robin suit that heavily implies a Death in the Family reference:

Opening quote
"You can extrapolate that if Batman kept his suit like that, it's a reminder," executive producer Geoff Johns told EW. "He's displayed the suit of a fallen ally, fallen friend in the center of the Batcave. It's right there for a reason, and part of it is to fuel him to continue to do what he does."

There are also a couple of new shots of supporting players Alfred and Wonder Woman, played by Jeremy Irons and Gal Godot, respectively, who are both already set to be standouts. Wonder Woman, in particular, reportedly "steals the show":

Opening quote
"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," EW wrote in their spoiler-free review. "Even before she brandishes a sword and her golden lasso, Wonder Woman's secret identity is pretty badass."

The images also give us a couple new looks at Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor, who has long been said to be very psychologically realistic, and will apparently be an "abused" version of the character:

Opening quote
"This is the Lex who was abused and no God ever rescued him," said Zack Snyder. "And so, to get revenge on that God, you know - God kneels, right? Bends to my will."
