Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for such a massive movie, is surprisingly something we don’t know that much about. We’ve gotten teaser photos, a trailer, and posters; but strangely we’ve yet to actually get a synopsis detailing what’s going to happen on screen.
Until today that is, per Collider just ahead of this year’s Licensing Expo:
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.
I guess Zod and his fellow Kryptonians invading and tearing up a huge hole in Metropolis was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the danger that the DC Universe is about to face. There have been rumors about what this will entail, but I’m not going to relay them here for fear of spoiling something. I’m sure Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor will probably be at the center of it.
Though I can’t help but wonder: where does Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman fit into all of this? Or how about the expected appearances of Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg? Quick cameos at best for the latter three?
I remain intrigued, mainly due to the fact that I have no idea what to really expect out of Oscar-winner Chris Terrio‘s take on the DC universe and what Zack Snyder will produce without the Christopher Nolan-factor.
T-minus 9 months (and some change) and counting. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases on March 26, 2016.
