Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.

The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.

Their enmity begins upon their first meeting when they're not even in costume. It only serves to be of great pleasure, however, to Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) whose plans are best served with the two most powerful men in the world seeing each other as the enemy. A happy distraction, which one hopes doesn't last too long because they've still got a world to save. Can the entrance of Wonder Women (Gal Gadot) bring the two men together in order to face their real adversary?

Both men want the same thing: to keep the world safe. Batman doesn't believe in civil liberties for those he deems as criminals, while Superman wants to obey the law. And Batman doesn't trust a space immigrant with abilities so powerful he could destroy the world.
