Two of the most iconic superheroes in comic book history will square off on the big screen when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next month. Earlier today, we showed you the final trailer for this highly-anticipated superhero adventure, and to compliment the latest footage, Warner Bros. has also released two new posters. The posters give us two different views of Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) engaging in battle, as the countdown continues towards the March 25 release. If that wasn’t enough, we also have photos from a new line of DC Comics action figures.
Yahoo! Movies has the first look at these DC Comics collectibles. The first series will be available in September, with the Batman figure costing $50 and the Superman figure priced at $45. Both of these figures come with 36 points of articulation, with Batman’s figure coming with swappable hands and accessories that include grapple gun and grenade launcher and a stand. Superman’s figure comes with a swappable head featuring Supes’s glowing red eyes as well as three different sets of hands. Here’s what DC’s Geoff Johns had to say about these action figures.
“We’re not holding anything back. It’s exciting to see our DC film slate bring to life so many great DC characters… This line will include everything from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman, and even the obscure characters that will pop up in the cinematic universe. I can’t wait for fans of our films to get their hands on these figures.”
The next series will launch in November, featuring Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, with both figures priced at $45. Lex’s accessories include a case full of Kryptonite, changeable hands, and Lex’s trademark bald head, while Wonder Woman comes with a sword, shield, and golden lariat, along with interchangeable hands. The company will also release new toys in September for Man of Steel, and, at an undetermined date in 2017, their Suicide Squad toys will be unveiled.
The Man of Steel action figures feature Jor-El, Faora and General Zod, while the Suicide Squad figures will showcase Harley Quinn, equipped with a pistol, baseball bat, and explosive collar, and El Diablo, which comes with “fire action.” We’ll be sure to keep you posted with more details about these action figures as soon as they’re available, but until then, take a look at these posters and photos below. Will you be picking up any of these Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice action figures later this year?
