Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Title Revealed
And it's shooting now...
After months of guesses, speculation and one reveal of Ben Affleck’s Batman in a monochrome picture, we now know the title for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel follow-up. Prepare yourself to visit a cinema in 2016 to see…. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
Clearly intended to lead – as everyone and their super-powered uncle could have predicted – into Warner Bros. planned Justice League film, Batman V Superman will see DC Comics’ two titans (along with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher's Cyborg and whoever else shows up in cameo form etc.) duking it out over some difference of opinion, egged on by Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, until they realise their forces are better united.
Though he shot some early footage quite a while back, Snyder is now officially rolling the cameras on the film in Michigan, with Henry Cavill back as Supes alongside Affleck, Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons (as Batman’s butler, Alfred) and Holly Hunter in a role shrouded in secrecy, which the official announcement says was created for the film.
Snyder will shoot in Detroit and Illinois as well as in Africa and the South Pacific, for an extensive production written once again by David S. Goyer. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is set for worldwide release on May 6, 2016.
