‘Batman V Superman’ is just shy of two weeks from opening and all reports indicate that it’s going to be massive! It features the first ever live action confrontation between two of the most famous icons in comics, plus it opens the door on a brand new cinematic comic universe based on DC Comics’ roster of legends.
It’s kind of a given that there’s more to this movie than fisticuffs since there is so much that will be spun off from it. While comic readers have spent decades speculating about a clash between these titans, the title of this movie works on multiple levels.
Henry Cavill (Superman) appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ and brought with him a clip that was glaringly free of any physical violence or even costumes! Watch the clip below to see Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) take on Clark Kent in a manner you may not have been expecting:
(Although Bruce Wayne’s arrogance should be completely expected.)
But if that clip leaves wanting a bit more ACTION, the following clip (brought to you by Doritos) should deliver. Affleck, Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) chime in on their takes on this epic screen battle:
“Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth.
As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction.
The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love. Zack Snyder (300) returns as director following the huge success of 2013’s Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck (Gone Girl) as Batman, Amy Adams (American Hustle) as Lois Lane, and Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 7) as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere.”
