Warner Bros. Pictures has released a few photos, teaser posters, and a teaser trailer, but until today the studio had not confirmed the official synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With the Licensing Expo about to kick off in Vegas, Warner Bros has unveiled the plot of the Batman v Superman film coming to theaters in 2016:
“Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.”
A new threat? Could that be Lex Luthor? Given that the film isn’t set to reach theaters until March 25, 2016, we’ll probably have to keep guessing what that threat refers to for many more months.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice features Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfre, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. The cast also includes returning Man of Steel co-stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
