In 2016, history will be made when two of the world’s most renowned superheroes will join forces for the first time in a live action major motion picture. The “Superman-Batman” project, as I have been calling while a majority of fans have referred to the film as “Batman vs. Superman” has finally been given an official title. The sequel to “Man of Steel” will henceforth be titled “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, with Oscar-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio in charge of the screenplay based on the story written by David S. Goyer and Snyder. Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman/Clark Kent, with Amy Adams back in the fold as Lois Lane and Lawrence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning to the sequel as well. Joining the franchise is Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter, Ray Fisher, Callan Hunter and Tao Okamoto rounding out the cast as well. With the title “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” there must be indication that all systems are go for “The Justice League” coming to theaters in 2018. “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will debut in theaters on May 6, 2016.
