First Look at Henry Cavill as Superman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

We got to see Ben Affleck as Batman back in May when director, Zack Snyder tweeted a pic and now we're treated to a picture of Henry Cavill as Superman, thanks to Warner Bros. We've obviously already seen Henry as Supes but it looks like he'll looking a tad different. The picture hints at a stormy situation and recently, Snyder talked with USA Today revealing more about the implications of the "v" in the title.

USA Today reveals, "The director can't say exactly how the relationship between the two superheroes evolves, 'but suffice it to say there is a 'v' in between their names' in the movie title, Snyder says. He explains that having the "v" instead of 'vs.' is a way 'to keep it from being a straight 'versus' movie, even in the most subtle way.'"

Snyder also understands why fans are so excited for the film, "You can talk all you want about other superhero movies, but it's Batman and Superman, let's just be honest. I don't know how you get bigger than that."

So lets take a look at 2013 Superman and May 6, 2016 Superman...

2013 v 2016: Kal-El's Outfit

The belt looks different, the "S" may or may not be slightly altered (read: smaller) and well, his hair is less fluffy (he is standing in the rain). Methinks he's a tad buffer as well.  Let us know what you think and if you're pumped for the film like Snyder thinks you should be!
