On March 25, 2016, ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ will hit theaters and it will be huge. Not only is it a reboot of Batman, an unofficial sequel to Superman, and an introduction to Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg all in one movie, it is also the second installment of the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe, that will set up for all the upcoming movies in that film series. It will be the first of two DC movies being released next year, the other being ‘Suicide Squad’, which Batman will also appear in. ‘Batman V Superman’ is especially huge because it sets up for not only the upcoming Justice League movie in 2017, but for all future DC movies by introducing main characters such as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg (all who will be making their first appearance on the big screen), Lex Luthor, Robin, and Alfred Pennyworth, while also setting up for the Joker. Since this film introduces most of the main characters-to-be of this upcoming franchise, and sets up for most future films, it puts a lot of pressure on this movie to be a good one.
The cool thing about this movie is Batman and Superman will be in the same movie together for the first time in movie history, which is exciting assuming they do it right. To do it right, they have to have a good amount of time with Batman fighting Superman, but they also need to have a solid time-block at the end with Superman and Batman putting aside their differences to fight the enemy and become allies so as to set up for Justice League. Also, since Ben Affleck is Batman, well things could go wrong. If he is good as Batman, somehow, the movie will have the finishing touch it needs to be a great movie. It Warner Bros. gets these three things right, ‘Batman V Superman’ should be great.
The premise of ‘Batman V Superman’ is Gotham City vigilante Batman travels to Metropolis to combat Superman, fearing what would happen if the Man of Steel was kept unchecked while also holding him responsible for the destruction of Metropolis, while a new threat to mankind arises. The film stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Gal Gabot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Arthur Curry/Aquaman in minor roles.
