Among the leaked teaser trailer, the hurriedly-released official teaser trailer, the first teaser posters and the on-set Batmobile photos, we were yet to told the actual plotline for the much-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Nine months before it’s release, DC have made official the film’s synopsis. It reads;
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.
Could this “new threat” be Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor? The synopsis itself ties into what we have previously heard about the film and how it deals with Batman’s involvement following the Metropolis-destroying events seen in Man of Steel.
Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jason Momoa and Holly Hunter, and will be released on 26 March 2016.
