BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

The cast of “Gilmore Girls” has weighed in on who they think will win, Batman or Superman.

CB.com chatted with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns, who talked enthusiastically about Aquaman’s involvement in “BvS.”

“It’s massive,” said Johns. “Jason [Momoa] and I were talking about Aquaman and I love that people underestimate the character. I feel like hopefully we’ll be able to share the love that we have as readers of the character because the jokes about him are fun, but he’s got so much depth to him, no pun intended. It’s really great to see him finally on the big screen.”

During the premiere event, “BvS” posted a featurette for the film to Snapchat — and, as the nature of the app, it disappeared forever from Snapchat after a day. Fortunately, the footage and photos have been preserved.
