So Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is the second movie to enter the DC Extended Universe. We have had Man of Steel (2013), the movie introduced us to the very own Superman, which had an S symbol on his chest which signified hope. The movie got a mixed review due to many people thinking that the film was too dark and colourless as well as very gritty. Well personally I loved the movie, and thought that this is the Superman movie I have always wanted to see as a fan.
So now talking about the sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice the movie comes out in 2016. Zack Snyder has given us a teaser trailer as well as an official trailer, and looking at both these trailer the film looks very promising. From what we have seen in the trailer, the fight between Zod and Kal-El in Man of Steel has destroyed the Wayne Tower, killing many people, batman is pissed. Superman is being taken to the Court for his actions for which he is guilty. For some people he is a God and for some just an outsider. The two heroes are going to clash for reasons we will see in the movie itself. The good thing about this movie is that it’s going to start the entire Justice League Universe, and we also will be seeing Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller(Barry Allen/Flash). Also the trailers have not shown us who will be the main villain in this movie, I mean there is Lex Luthor but, I guess there will be a bigger villain, the rumours doing the rounds are around Doomsday and Bizarro. The trailer also gave away that Batman has also witnessed the death of Robin.
Now the question, will it be the most epic comic book movie of all time? It’s actually a tough one at this. But many fans seem confident about the movie will be a hell epic ride. The movie is inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, which gave us an epic finale battle between Superman and Batman. Even the costumes are exactly similar to the ones from comics.
Secondly the trailer gives us hints that the movie is actually meant for continuity and it’s relation with other DC movies, which is for now Suicide Squad, which gave us a look at Jared Leto’s Joker. The storytelling will be very much back and forth to each other here like the Marvel movies.
The movie has brought so much hype to itself that each and every day there is a new rumor about the cast revealing something or the other. I think this is the marketing that a movie this big deserves, at last it will be great to see the dark knight taking on the Superman.
The movie stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) etc. The movie releases March 23rd 2016.
What do you think will the movie be the most epic comic book movie? Tell me in the comments.
