'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' images deliver more Wonder Woman

No real surprise, most of what Warner Bros. has released from its new superhero showdown movie "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been predominently centered around Batman and, well, Superman. But not anymore. Today Wonder Woman took center stage in a new crop of images, which hopefully reveal a bit of the Diana Prince backstory. Plus the new Lex Luthor has hair. 

Entertainment Weekly has a host of new "Batman v. Superman" images but our attention is on Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) taking center stage on the cover of the issue. Could this mean the long awaited female superhero may actually have a larger role in this film? 

The images are certainly implying that, specifically this still of Ben Affleck as a slightly older Bruce Wayne leering over Diana Prince's shoulder, both of them in formal attire. 

Another surprise is Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor with hair. Let's not forget the hilarious internet outcry (of both excitement and fear) that came with the casting of Eisenberg followed by lots and lots of bad bald cap photoshopping. 

The rest of the images appear to be culled from the earlier trailer.

No doubt we'll be seeing lots more of this movie next week at San Diego Comic-Con. And don't worry: Hero Complex will be there on the ground floor reporting it all live. To follow our convention coverage, follow us at @LATherocomplex. 

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will premiere on March 25, 2016.
