When an alien lifeform crashed to Earth decades ago, no one noticed. When his own kind came after him, the fate of the world was threatened. When he saved mankind, they looked up to him like a God. But times have changed, and people have died since his arrival. The world has had enough of the "false God" Superman (Henry Cavill), but there is already another hero in the world. In Gotham City, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) has spent years and billions of dollars making himself into the greatest detective and the finest crime fighter. But the Batman knows that one does not simply arrive to a thunderous applause. He has earned his role as judge and jury, and it is up to him to stop the Man of Steal.
Batman and Superman go head to head in the new trailer for 'Dawn of Justice'.
The first trailer for the DC crossover movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has finally arrived - and it's difficult to tell who's most formidable, despite the fact that one superhero has earned his power, and the other was gifted at birth.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is coming next year
Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.
We're not saying it was a ploy by the Hollywood Hype Machine, but...
As far as publicity goes, the leaked Batman vs. Superman trailer may have worked in the movie’s favour. Sure, the early release meant it sort of clashed with the first look at Star Wars: Episode VII, but then this probably means that the superhero showdown will get an extra day of hype, once the actual, legit trailer drops/is released by the studio for real.
The shaky, second-hand recording of the trailer was only on YouTube for minutes, before being taken down, but it was enough to generate pages and pages of coverage, because, you know, content is kind of like gold for entertainment writers.
The trailer is our first real look at Ben Affleck as Batman - but not quite yet.

Eisenberg has gone bald for Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero film.
In a year from now we’ll probably be queuing outside a movie theatre eagerly awaiting our first viewing of Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But for now, we’re just making do with whatever scraps of information we can get on the upcoming superhero epic. So after months of speculation about the state of cast member Jesse Eisenberg’s hair, today we’ve been given our first official look at the actor as the bald supervillain, Lex Luthor.
'Game Of Thrones' star looks forbidding in Zack Snyder's first image.
Fans were given a first look at the forthcoming film incarnation of Aquaman, with director Zack Snyder reveals just how menacing Jason Momoa will be as the sea-dwelling DC Comics superhero as 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' gets well under way.
Jason Momoa is Aquaman
It's all about DC at the moment with Henry Cavill's Superman having become a huge hit in 2013's 'Man Of Steel' and 'Fast And Furious' star Gal Gadot being announced as Wonder Woman in Michelle MacLaren's upcoming movie. Zack Snyder is bringing them all together in a long-awaited DC superhero crossover movie entitled 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice', and 'Game Of Thrones' star Jason Momoa is just the latest announcement for the cast - as fish-friendly King of Atlantis, Aquaman.
Are Scoot McNairy socks a green screen for The Flash? Or just a weird fashion statement?
With Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman all making solid appearances in 2016's 'Batman v Superman' movie, we can't help but wonder who else will be joining the Justice League. Right now, our bets are on Scoot McNairy as The Flash.
Scoot McNairy to play The Flash?
The casting announcements for Zack Snyder's 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' have been both thoroughly exciting and extremely surprising. Of course, we knew Henry Cavill would return as the Man of Steel, we spent hours pondering who could play Wonder Woman before Gal Gadot was chosen and we were pleased on the announcement of Ben Affleck taking over Christian Bale as the Dark Knight. Rumours are still circulating that Jason Momoa might be joining the team as Aquaman, but the thing we're most excited for at the moment are recent whispers of Scoot McNairy taking on The Flash.
Welcome to the gun show, aka Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman look.
Oh, hey Marvel, good luck trying to top DC’s Comic-Con panel this year. On Saturday, the crowd in Hall H got their first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film. And it was cool.

It has all but been confirmed that the US actor will take on the nautical DC Comics hero.
Jason Momoa is set to play Aquaman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Justice League movie, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, if reports are to be believed. It was first claimed that the Game of Thrones actor would be raising Aquaman's iconic trident back in December last year but rumours are now hotter than ever as Snyder's 2016 blockbuster draws nearer and HitFix claims to have confirmed the news.
The imposing Hawaiian star was an ideal selection to play chieftain of the Dothraki people, Khal Drogo, in HBO's hit fantasy series but his impressive height and muscular physicality doesn't fit so well with DC Comics' original blonde, cheerful and sprightly underwater superhero in his green leggings and yellow marigold-esque gloves.
The Big Bang Theory has done a good job of pushing the notion that Aquaman, who first appeared in the graphic novels in 1941, is the Justice League's equivalent of Star Wars' Jar Jar Binks. In other words, a laughing stock who provides comic relief and props up the storyline with the other, more serious characters get down to the real action.
The cast of the 2016 movie - and a possible "Justice League" - is shaping up.
It has been confirmed: DC now has its Aquaman and it’s none other than Jason Momoa. The news that Momoa will play the DC Comics superhero Aquaman in both the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and its sequel Justice League was confirmed by Variety, after months of heavy speculation.
Momoa cleverly brushed off the Aquaman rumors, right until his contract was confirmed.
Back in December, it was reported that Momoa was in talks to play Aquaman, in addition to the already announced main cast, which includes Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor (that announcement raised a fair few eyebrows) and Jeremy Irons as Alfred.
Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman, but Ben Affleck will take on Batman for the very first time in the upcoming superhero flick, scheduled to open next year.
Many superhero fans have been waiting for this moment, the unveiling of the title of the ‘Man of Steel’ sequel, which will feature Batman and Superman. The upcoming epic is officially called ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’
Snyder will direct the upcoming superhero epic
The Zack Snyder-directed flick has also made a start on principle photography on Wednesday (May 21st) in Detroit, Warner Bros. announced. The filming locations for the movie will be Africa, the South Pacific and Illinois.
Ben Affleck's Batsuit and Batmobile are here, but what do we really think?
Finally we’ve able to feast our eyes on Ben Affleck’s Batsuit and well, was it worth the wait? In the black and white photo tweeted by director Zack Snyder a bulky Ben can, for the first time, be seen as the caped crusader, though he doesn’t look to happy about it. Sad Batman memes aside, Affleck probably will be cracking a smile soon as he might just have exceeded our expectations with his new look.
Broadway actor Ray Fisher is the latest addition to Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman", but who is he billed to play?
Exciting news has been trickling in about new cast members set to join Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie, Batman v Superman. New York theatre actor, Ray Fisher, is rumored to be the newest addition, allegedly landing the role of Victor Stone AKA Cyborg.
Broadway star Ray Fisher has been cast as Cyborg
A Variety report revealed that over the past several weeks Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been screen testing actors for the role. Fisher has apparently won the producers over, although the studio has yet to confirm whether or not he has officially landed the role.
Continue reading: Who Is Ray Fisher's 'Batman V Superman' Character, Cyborg?
In the battle of the superheroes, Marvel are currently an evil genius.
An official, standalone Justice League movie has been confirmed. It will follow 2016’s hugely anticipated battle between Batman and Superman in what has been dubbed either ‘Man of Steel 2’ or ‘Batman v Superman’, set to commence in 2016.
Henry Cavill as Superman in 'Man of Steel'
Zack Snyder will pilot the project, which kicks off an important period for Warner Bros in the Superhero space. Marvel’s dominance of the genre is plain to see, with The Avengers breaking box office records and finding itself in illustrious, billion-dollar company amongst the all time box office grossers list.
The actor has a minor part in Batman Vs. Superman, to be expanded later in the series.
The Batman vs. Superman movie casting may have had comic book fans on the brink of desperation up until now, but it looks like Zack Snyder and Co. may have gotten one thing right. Meet your new Cyborg – Ray Fisher. Now, Fisher is primarily a stage actor, although that has been known to work for past superhero movies and he has been cast as Victor Stone. That’s all we know at this point, according to Variety. Early reports claimed that Fisher was being considered for a part in Snyder's Star Wars Episode VII, but it looks like he was transferred to another big-budget Snyder production.
Fisher's background is mostly theatrical.
The character has a minor role in Batman vs. Superman, but this casting and Fisher’s appearance are intended to pave the way for future appearances by the superhero within the Justice League franchise that Warner Bros. is setting up for. A little background on Cyborg: the character made his first appearance in 1980's "DC Comics Presents" #26. In the "New 52" continuity, he's a high school athlete who, after getting caught in a S.T.A.R. Labs explosion, is given powerful bionic abilities that lead to him becoming a founding member of the Justice League.

'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' may be a kids movie, but it wasn't taking any prisoners in its second week.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman has defied expectations by claiming the box office number one spot in its second weekend of release. Dreamworks' animated children's comedy moved up from last weekend's second place to become the most-watched film of the week, with domestic box office takings of $21.2 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' Enjoys A Surprise Trip To The Top Of The Box Office.
The lively movie about a genius dog and his human son was held off last week's number one action fantasy movie, 300: Rise of an Empire. Zack Snyder's R-rated sequel was forced to settle for second best this week, taking $19.2 million. It seems that the initial excitement surrounding the follow-up to the highly-quotable 2006 film dissipated when critics began to file crushing reviews.
Fans of the 2007 Spartan war romp 300 probably won't care that this spin-off is even more chaotic and much murkier to look at. It still features armies of scantily clad muscle men grunting idiotic declamatory dialogue as they charge into cartoon-style battles against all odds. No, this isn't particularly subtle filmmaking: it's loud and brutal. And good for an unintentional laugh.
At the same time as Spartan King Leonidas (a briefly glimpsed Gerard Butler) is leading his 300 men to battle against Xerses (Santoro), Greek General Themistocles (Stapleton) approaches Leonidas' wife Gorgo (Headey) for help facing Xerses vengeful military commander Artemisia (Green) on another front at sea. Themistocles' main officers are Aesyklos (Matheson) and Scyllias (Mulvey), whose son Calisto (O'Connell) secretly joins the army as they set sail for an epic ship-based battle against Artemisia's fearsome forces. And there are two more watery conflicts to come, each more outrageous than the one before, as Artemisia taunts Themistocles seductively while dispensing fiery death and destruction at every turn.
The addition of two strong women adds a bit of interest here, but the focus is still on the bare-chested men, even if only three or for of them actually emerge into proper characters. Headey's chief contribution is a rambling voiceover narration explaining everything for us, while Green's wry smirk and momentous glower let her steal every scene. By contrast, the men seem rather feeble. Stapleton is manly and commanding, but not hugely charismatic. Rising-star O'Connell barely gets two decent scenes. Santoro is hilariously grouchy eye candy. And everyone else is clearly expendable.

The multiple movie deal could mean two solo Wonder Woman outings in addition to 'Batman Vs. Superman.'
Gal Gadot has signed to play superhero Wonder Woman for three movies, confirms Variety. The Israeli actress and model has been cast in the iconic comic book role by DC Comics and Warner Bros. and will first appear in Zack Snyder's upcoming 2016 hero face-off, which is currently titled Batman Vs. Superman.
Gal Gadot Has Signed To Play Wonder Woman For Three Movies.
28 year-old Gadot will bring Wonder Woman to the big screen for the first time alongside Henry Cavill, who'll reprise his Superman role, as well as the recently-cast Ben Affleck as Batman. Gal's three picture deal will reportedly be fulfilled with a Justice League movie and a Wonder Woman standalone film.
The 'Superman vs. Batman' movie has been put on hold for 9 months
It seems as though we'll have to wait a bit longer to see Ben Affleck in tight spandex pants, sharing screen time with Henry Cavill's equally tight spandex pants. DC were looking to launch their own multi-hero film franchise with the release of the Man of Steel sequel, working under the title of 'Superman vs. Batman,' in July 2015, however a recent announcement from the studio has said we'll have to wait a little longer.
The first Man of Steel was a hit and the sequel promises to be even bigger
Warner Brothers revealed on Friday (17 Jan.) - via The Hollywood Reporter - that it planned on holding back on the Man of Steel sequel until 6 May, 2016, with the studio's prequel of Peter Pan - titled Pan - replacing the initially planned 17 July, 2015, release date. The studio did not give any reason as to why the films were trading release dates, however has been suggested that Warner Bros. wanted a May release for the superhero film owing to the month's tendency to yield higher box office returns in recent years.

Jason Momoa in talks to star in the 'Superman Vs Batman' movie as Doomsday or Martian Manhunter.
The 'Conan the Barbarian' star could be set to star as Martian Manhunter in the upcoming film, which currently has no official title but will serve as a sequel to this year's 'Man Of Steel'. The character is one of the superhero members of the DC comic book team, the Justice League of America so if this suggestion is true, it could throw into question an 'Avengers' style movie given that Wonder Woman will also make an appearance in the movie.
Kryptonian supervillain Doomsday from the Batman franchise is another possibility for Momoa; a character known to be the only supervillain to have ever managed to kill Superman - a storyline that appeared in the 1992 comic 'The Death of Superman'.
Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in 'Batman Vs. Superman.'
Gal Gadot will play superhero Wonder Woman in Zac Snyder's 2015 action crossover movie, Batman Vs. Superman it has been announced, via Deadline. The news that the Israeli model, actress and former army recruit has been picked to don the legendary leotard and lasso has been confirmed by director Snyder himself who said that she has a "magical quality."
Gal Gadot Is Set To Take On The Wonder Woman Role.
The movie will see Henry Cavill's Superman and Ben Affleck's Batman engage in a faced-off for the first time on the big screen in what is currently being titled as Batman Vs. Superman but is expected to change after Warner Bros. registered a list of possible titles, many involving the word "dark." Check out the full list here.
