Official Synopsis for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Released


I know what all of you were waiting with bated breath for two days after the Tonys, the synopsis for Batman v Superman: Why Is This Title So Long Dawn of Justice! In all seriousness, this movie is going to be one of the most hotly anticipated titles of 2016 and WB has released an official synopsis.

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.

Interesting things to me about this synopsis: seems like Bruce is already Batman (no origin story praise!), they’ll explore what it means to be a hero, and I’m intrigued by what this threat to mankind looks like, given all the destruction we saw in Man of Steel.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Harry Lennix, Diane Lane, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto,Jason Momoa, Scoot McNairy and Ray Fisher. It arrives in theaters March 25, 2016.
