Warner Bros. took the stage this morning at Comic-Con in San Diego to show off some of its upcoming film slate, including a quick look at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (yes, they are still serious about that title). According to reports from various media attending the event, Zack Snyder took the stage, fresh off a plane that came directly from the film’s set, to show off a short teaser trailer. He also welcomed the trinity of headlining cast — Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot — to the stage before also showing off some images of the cast in their costumes.
After the break, we’ve got descriptions of the footage and a first (slightly blurry) look at Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman armor, complete with a sword.
For a description of the footage, here are some 140-character updates from Ain’t It Cool News‘ Eric Vespe:

Zack Snyder has since revealed the high resolution shot of Gadot via his Twitter:

My initial reaction: Gal Gadot looks pretty badass with that sword. The costume fits with the torso-hugging style of WW’s classic look, but also seems to function as armor for the purposes of the movie. Based on the description of Batman’s bulked up armor in the first teaser, it should like everyone is armoring up in the shadow of Superman. The most important question about Gadot’s Wonder Woman appears to be at least partially answered: she looks formidable. How that translates when everything is set in motion remains to be seen, but consider me cautiously optimistic for now.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is due out May 6, 2016.
