Professional conceptual artist Robert McKinnon (Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) has updated his official website with concept art he created for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, including alternate designs for Aquaman's Trident of Neptune, Wonder Woman's Sword of Athena, the Man of Steel's statue, the kryptonite spear, and The Dark Knight's Batwing. There are also designs for Gotham City, Superman's casket, and the Bat-Signal.

As you can see in the album below, McKinnon's version of the Superman statue, featuring a different pose, has been defaced with with red graffiti, too, but instead of "FALSE GOD," it has "NAZI GOD" spray-painted across the chest.

There are a three different versions of Aquaman's signature weapon. In the comics, the Trident of Neptune has many magical powers, such as controlling the weather and the sea and unleashing blasts of lightning. Though, we only got see a glimpse of it in Batman v Superman when Aquaman jabbed and blasted an underwater drone that was spying on him.

There are over twenty different versions of Wonder Woman's Sword of Athena. We got to see her wielding the magical and powerful sword during the climactic battle with Doomsday, using it to cut off the beast's right hand. Fun fact: Wonder Woman's sword is engraved (translated in ancient Greek) with a quote from Joseph Campbell's Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine: "Life is killing life all the time and so the goddess kills herself in the sacrifice of her own animal."
