Even though the film won’t arrive in theaters until March 25, marketing has been out in full force for months already. It appears as though at least once a week we get new information, pictures or quotes related to the movie. A film this big doesn’t run the risk of consumer fatigue, though, so you can expect it to continue up until release. Here’s a compilation of a few items that dropped this week including some quotes and photos for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
I’m not really sure we can trust Michael Shannon at this point. He made a statement a few months ago that his dead General Zod was going to appear in the sequel and that he’d have flippers. He later dismissed the quote saying it was only a joke. With that in mind, here’s his latest comments from an interview with Cinema Blend:
“Yeah, I say some stuff. But not a whole lot! I mean, I am dead. I’m just like a ghost. It’s kind of like Russell Crowe in the first one. Jor-El. For some reason, these Kryptonian spirits, they linger. Even once you crack my neck, you can’t shut me up.”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Adams (Lois Lane) spoke about her favorite scene from the upcoming movie. She naturally can’t get into details because the film hasn’t come out yet, but what’s interesting is that she describes the scene as funny. This iteration of Superman and the Justice league under Zack Snyder’s reboot has been gritty with a dark and serious tone, so “funny” seems out of place. Perhaps they will look to lighten the mood from time to time. Here’s the quote:
“I can’t give too much away, but I’m coming into a scene and Batman and Superman are both in the scene, so I can say that. And it was just fun. Because they had been working together for a couple weeks and just running it, seeing this dynamic. I’ll talk about this when we’re promoting the movie and we can tell more. But there were definitely funny moments involving bat-suits and such.”
Lastly, Scoot McNairy, who is believed to be playing Daily News reporter Jimmy Olsen, commented on how this movie compares to the previous films (and from the context I can’t tell if he’s comparing it to previous DC films or superhero movies in general). Here’s what he had to say from his interview with We Got This Covered:
“This is the superhero film that is more grounded in reality than any of the other ones. It’s a comic book movie, yes, but it’s very, very grounded.”
