BATMAN V SUPERMAN: Zack Snyder Tweets Strange Set Photo; Batfleck Costume Spotted At SDCC

Zack Snyder was rumoured to be involved with a Star Wars spin-off not too long ago, and he's now Tweeted out a photo of Henry Cavil in his Superman suit...wielding a lightsaber! Wait, what? Oh, and we also have a first look at Batfleck's costume on display at Comic-Con...

So, I guess this means that Henry Cavill has joined the cast of a Zack Snyder helmed Star Wars spin-off, right? Wrong. Well, maybe! The director is probably just having some fun here and the cloak that Henry Cavill is wearing is one of those that actors often don on set to avoid being snapped by the paparazzi. It does look a lot like a Jedi's cloak and I guess Snyder had a lightsaber hanging around somewhere...either way, we can see the Superman costume peeking through and the last time that the filmmaker sent out a photo of something covered up, we got our first look at Batman! Could this humourous tease perhaps lead to a bigger reveal? We'll have to wait and see...

UPDATE: We didn't think the Warner Bros. would be bringing anything from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice to Comic-Con, but in a sign that we should perhaps expect a surprise at their panel on Saturday, the cape and cowl for Ben Affleck's new costume has been spotted on the show floor! It doesn't reveal much, but it does give us a better idea of the colour scheme if nothing else.

I guess Fox didn't buy Time Warner but Disney instead.
MrCBM - 7/23/2014, 5:14 PM
[frick] is this?
SilverFalcon - 7/23/2014, 5:14 PM
Kind of makes me wish Cavill played Anakin back in the prequels. Had he done that he probably wouldn't have ended up playing Supes though.

Cavill looks super serious.
MrBlackjack - 7/23/2014, 5:21 PM
They're probably just goofing off.

Stop being a douche for once.
McGee - 7/23/2014, 5:24 PM
Cavill, you bitch. Shannon did it first!

ScorpioRisin - 7/23/2014, 5:24 PM
In all seriousness, that's probably just the rope he uses to hide the suit and the lightsaber was just a prop lying around.
AlexanderLykins - 7/23/2014, 5:25 PM
Seriously Zack? How about a cropped image of Wonder Woman's suit?
Indy - 7/23/2014, 5:25 PM
Ha cool pic at first glance I thought it was star killer for a sec before I realize it was Henry. Look like there having fun playing with the robes.
batman1216 - 7/23/2014, 5:26 PM
Why does everything have to be Marvel this and DC that. Marvel is killing today, but DC is going to destroy when they drop the Trinity pic. The Avengers pics are also amazing.

@Sipprelle I know that, but I mean whenever they do decide to release it. Marvel does have a lot more going on and good for them, but if the plan that Warner and DC has is true, then the next few years are going to be pretty awesome from both sides.
MrBlackjack - 7/23/2014, 5:31 PM
In other news, here's the Batfleck cowl
omnipotent18 - 7/23/2014, 5:32 PM
Weird, but at the same time cool
MBZ1993 - 7/23/2014, 5:33 PM

Schme83 - 7/23/2014, 5:33 PM
Sith have red lightsabers not jedi.
DrKinsolving - 7/23/2014, 5:33 PM
Shouldn't it be a GREEN light saber? haha, can't wait to see the trinity
KurtWagner1225 - 7/23/2014, 5:33 PM
yep..getting ready for some Batman V Superman business at Comic Con
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/23/2014, 5:34 PM
Great find BlackJack!
staypuffed - 7/23/2014, 5:34 PM
whoa123 - 7/23/2014, 5:34 PM
LOL awesome! I'm really interested with his idea for Star-Wars spin-off though.
ALegendaryPanda - 7/23/2014, 5:35 PM
In all seriousness though, Henry Cavill would make an awesome Jedi or Sith!
TheBeard - 7/23/2014, 5:35 PM
what is with the tinfoil Batman cowl one? is he trying to block telepathy
whoa123 - 7/23/2014, 5:35 PM
@MrBlackJack- Holy cr*p! Thanks!!
McGee - 7/23/2014, 5:36 PM

It won't be newsworthy, until one of the power users says so.
