The official synopsis for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has just been released.
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.
This synopsis is pretty basic, it doesn't really reveal anything we didn't already know. We knew that the world was going to be questioning the right of Superman and his god like abilities, we know Batman has a problem with Superman and the two will go head to head, and I think it's safe to assume all of us guessed that they'll put their differences aside to stop a much bigger threat.
What is the new threat?
Lex Luthor? Doesn't sound like it. Many reports and rumors have stated that Doomsday...the villain responsible for the death of Superman in the comics will be appearing in the film but as of yet there is no confirmation. I have a slight issue when it comes to Doomsday appearing in the film. What can Batman really do? Doomsday is an incredible force of nature, so powerful that he did take down the Man of Steel, so what can a man dressed like a Bat with no super human abilities really do against such a creature?
We do know Aquaman and Wonder Woman will be appearing in the film, will they also join forces to stop this big baddie? I guess only time will tell.
I still have to remind my self that this movie is actually happening sometimes as this is really the FIRST time we are ever going to see Batman and Superman in the same feature film together, that's completely crazy right?
I know many of you didn't like Man Of Steel but I'm a big fan of the film, I thought it was excellent and I think the themes they explored in that film were very interesting, and I believe that this follow up film is going to delve into them even more. What right does an alien have to protect our planet? Is he a god? What amount of power should he be allowed to have? These are very interesting questions that should make any fan tingle with excitement. And of course there is the added bonus of having Batman in there as well.
We've seen a bunch of images and a teaser so the synopsis really tells us nothing new, more so just solidifies some of our speculations.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice opens in theaters March 26th 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Jason Momoa and is directed by Zack Snyder.
