As the title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice implies, the movie is not just about the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) working out their issues by punching each other in the face. It also sets the stage for the two Justice League movies, the first of which, set to open on Nov. 17, 2017, starts shooting with director Zack Snyder next month.
To that end, four DC Comics characters make their feature film debuts in Batman v Superman, first and foremost Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), who will headline her own film in 2017 directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster). The Amazonian warrior enjoys a fair amount of screen time in BVS, and she’s also the conduit for our introduction to the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), in a sequence in which Bruce Wayne sends her surveillance files kept by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) of “meta humans,” including herself.
Getting these debuts right was vital to the filmmakers, and here is what Snyder and his wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder, told BuzzFeed News about what they wanted to accomplish with each character.
