New Batman v Superman Details Revealed

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


If it seems like the hype surrounding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been building for a ridiculously long time, there’s a good reason: it has. Nearly two years have passed since the release of Man of Steel and the notorious Batfleck announcement.

While the film has been on the minds of movie fans for all this time, the actual plot has remained under wraps. The trailer offered some revealing hints, but the new plot synopsis offers a better sense of the big picture. After confirming the superhero showdown, this brief paragraph suggests that the title characters will eventually have to join forces to take on a new foe:

“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.”

We’re not sure anyone would dare refer to Lex Luthor as “a new threat,” but he’s prominently listed in the credits (played by Jesse Eisenberg), suggesting that he’s the film’s main source of evil. Still /Film and many others believe that another threat might be in play.

You’ll have to wait until March 25th, 2016 for a definitive answer, but in the meantime, check out the new Batmobile images that Coming Soon snapped at Licensing Expo 2015. We’ve included a few samples below.
