Warner Home Video sent us a bunch of images over the weekend, from the upcoming Superman/Batman: Public Enemies movie. In the film, United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a Kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime,” Batman.
