Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Batman V Superman Lightsaber

Comic-Con launches today, which means lots and lots teases, and while it remains to be seen what Warner Bros. might unveil from "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," a couple of pics circulating online are certainly getting fans talking.

This afternoon, another look at Ben Affleck as Batman in the super sequel floated around, with photographer Clay Enos confirming via Twitter it was his pic. Why should we believe him? Well, according to his bio, he's worked with Zack Snyder on "Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch," taking character portraits and more, and it seems he's doing the same here. But leave it Snyder to take it to the next level.

Last night, the director tweeted an image of Henry Cavill as Superman wielding a lightsaber (talk about knowing how to get fanboys wet). Was it just a goofy image from the director, or is he somehow suggest that he's now involved in the "Star Wars" franchise? You might remember that last summer he was rumored to be involved in developing a spinoff movie from the new trilogy (talk that was debunked at the time), but hey, you never know. Or you can just forever dream about the "Star Wars"/"Man Of Steel" crossover that will never happen.

Check out both pics below.
