@ObiWanShinobi I'm glad we can agree to disagree. For me, this is the look to Batman I'd always wanted to see portrayed on screen, big or small. I am a diehard comic book fan of all mediums from the books to television to the movies. Not just DC but Marvel as well but I could list them all. I like what entertains me. But, when it comes to story arcs and characters and their developments, I tend to be more partial to DC. I've been pulling for them to get it together cinematically. Finally, and this is just to me, but finally it appears they are doing so. And judging by that comic con footage, with two years away, I'm stoked. Dawn of Justice just might be that ride all comic book movie fans are looking for.
That was AWESOME!!!

@ObiWanShinobi I would agree with you BUT I can't this time my friend. Amazonian warrior or not, as she is depicted in the comic books, if you really think about it, the character herself has never been a big woman. And it truly depends on what iteration you look at as to her bust size. Wonder Woman has always been petite and most often dwarfed by the male counterparts of Batman and Superman. She has also worn high heels at certain points. She's not incredibly buffed but curvy and toned and always portrayed in a strikingly beautiful frame. We know historically or in a mythological sense what she'd look like but really think about how she's been portrayed over the years. Even when Linda Carter was cast as Wonder Woman she closely resembled her look at that time. It's often made me scratch my head at what people were truly expecting with this character. The thing that made Wonder Woman formidable among her male counterparts is the fight in her and I guess when she's crushing things with her bare hands it may seem that she's larger than life. On this one it's just a matter of perception I guess...to each his own. In my opinion she looks awesome. She looks very similar to the way she's drawn for the New 52.
@brian It's the angle he's shot at.

Just a thought, looking at this picture again. Batman has had different length ears throughout the spans of decades. The shorter ones have been most prevalent in a lot of the comic book iterations, especially from the form of Jim Lee's art which is clearly the inspiration here. A lot of the references I've read on here to Dare Devil's horns in previous articles is mostly imaginative having prior knowledge that Ben Affleck had once played the Marvel character. If this was any other actor, the reference to the ears resembling Dare Devil would not have even been a thought. Personally, I've always favored the shorter ears. Tactically they aren't aren't in the way and they make more sense by way of the shape of the head. They blend more to the shadow and draw less attention from the shade. Eh, just a thought...
Part of me wishes that there was enough footage laying around that they could cut a special edition version of Superman Lives for the fans similar to how they did the Donner version of Superman II. Ah, can't help but wonder how this would have turned out. It would have been the original Dawn of Justice. Imagine, Michael Keaton as Batman and Nicholas Cage as Superman sharing the screen even if it was only a cameo. I would've liked to have seen them feed off one another. All in all, can't wait to see this doc*mentary.
