SDCC: Batman v. Superman Costumes Better Actors Without Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot

The statues used to display the costumes were described as "more lifelike" than the movie's stars.

It's the first day of San Diego Comic Con (which will eventually begin the day after the previous year's ends), so that means its time for unique hit-loving websites to start posting photographs of random shit on the con floor and making a big deal about it. First up is ComicBook.com, whose "writer" Joe Comicbook has still not been confirmed as a real person and not a dignity-saving sock puppet, despite my having a man on the inside. Comicbook posted a bunch of photos from the display for Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Ben Affleck's Divorce, and the photos garnered an unexpected reaction.


"You know, I'm kind of interested in this movie now," said one confused fan after viewing the photos, which show the costumes that Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot will wear in the upcoming grimdark superhero epic. "There's a certain charisma here, you know?"

Fans viewing the photos almost unanimously agreed that, without Aflleck, Cavill, and Gadot, the costumes seemed more energetic, more believable, and more lifelike, though the male fans also felt that the statue of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman "could stand to have bigger boobs. You know, for realism."


"Take a look at that one of the Superman manequin," pointed out another fan. "He's a pretty good actor, don't you think?"

When asked by The Outhouse, nine out of ten fans said that they would be more likely to see the movie if its main actors were replaced with plastic statues, empty suits, or anthropomorphic animals, like "a talking badger or something."


"I know there's not much of a chance of that last one, but we can dream, can't we?" wondered a hopeful fan.

Superman v. Batman hits theaters next year, so there's plenty of time to replace all the live actors with ventriloquist dummies in post-production. We'll keep you updated. Check out Joe Comicbook's "article" to see a bunch more shots.
