A handful of new photos from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" feature a confrontation between Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman at her day job, Lex Luthor with a chunk of Kryptonite and more.

"I think the most difficult thing for [Superman] is that he has just come to terms with the fact that he is really, really quite powerful," star Henry Cavill told Entertainment Weekly. "Despite this, despite the enormous power that he has, he still cannot do everything, and he really struggles with that."

"Although he is physically infallible, psychologically he's very much vulnerable to the same things that make us vulnerable," he continued. "When you're doing your best, your utmost, and then people point their finger at you and call you the bad guy... That would be enormously frustrating. I know the human reaction would be, 'Hold on a second, F-you man,' and his reaction is the first half of that: not quite the 'F-you'; It's the hurt."

As to that vandalized Robin costume in the Batcave, DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns said, "You can extrapolate that if Batman kept his suit like that, it's a reminder. He's displayed the suit of a fallen ally, fallen friend in the center of the Batcave. It's right there for a reason, and part of it is to fuel him to continue to do what he does."

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and others, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits screens on March 25.
