Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice latest movie release news

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’ 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.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams is released in 2016 though here in the MarkMeets office, we’ve all been thinking that Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was based on Frank Miller’s classic graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns.

It features a similar face-off between the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel, which sees Batman don a similar mech-suit to battle Superman, and the visuals look similar to the comic’s brooding edge. Miller himself even consulted with Snyder on the film. But here is what Snyder had the say:

“You could still make Dark Knight Returns into a movie, if you want. That’s what I’m saying, as far as how much we used and how much we didn’t use. The visual elements, there are some that I homage, but I don’t think the movie [is an adaptation]”.

Taking place in the aftermath of Man of Steel, the film sees the world divided on how to handle Superman. Is he their savior or an alien invader with the power to wipe out humanity? If you ask Bruce Wayne, it’s the latter, which is why he sets out to best his might. However, this is a smoke screen — and, based on Snyder’s statements, seemingly in more ways than one. Lex Luthor, envisioned as a young, Zuckerbergian entrepreneur, has his own devious plans. We know he has the deceased body of General Zod in his possession, as well as Superman’s ultimate weakness, kryptonite. We also see Batman fighting an army of soldiers wearing black suits and sporting Superman’s emblem. We still have a few months before Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25, 2016, but we still haven’t seen any official looks at the characters played by actors Callan Mulvey, Scoot McNairy and Jena Malone.

Dawn of Justice points to this film being a precursor to the two-part Justice League coming down the road. As such, we’ll be seeing our first looks at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and reportedly Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and Ezra Miller’s The Flash. We know that these characters don’t appear in the film for too long, but we’ve seen the Amazonian warrior fighting some unknown but strong figure on a fiery battlefield.

With all these moving parts, it’s difficult to hone in on one comic book at the root of all this. Batman v Superman already seems to be taking the Winter Soldier approach, in that it seems to suggest one storyline, but another, more jaw-dropping one is waiting to reveal itself.

Batman co-creator Bob Kane posthumously received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Release Date: 25th March 2016.
