It was bound to happen. Even the best of the good guys can get a little too big for their spandex. Egos of enormous size can occasionally collide--in the case of larger than life superheroes, this sort of collision is going to create massive waves. In the upcoming film, Batman V. Superman: The Dawn of Justice, two of humanity’s favorite superheroes appear together on the silver screen for the first time. The meeting, however, isn’t entirely pleasant. You have to believe that the showdown between two of DC Comic's biggest crime fighters is going to be the stuff of which legends are made. We can hardly wait!
It seems that Bruce Wayne, Gotham City’s underground crime fighter has temporarily retired from fighting hoodlums and mega-villains. Enraged by the devastation that ensued in the city of Metropolis in the aftermath of Superman’s battle with Zod, Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) decides that it may be time to deal with Superman in his own way. Feeling that the Man of Steel has become a danger to humanity, Batman makes it his mission to take out Superman himself. No longer will Batman allow Superman to use his power unchecked; the Dark Knight must go into action and take him on, mano a mano.
What happens when you have the two most colossal good guys battling one another? Well, in a word, it’s chaos. Batman V. Superman puts the world in a more vulnerable and perilous situation than ever before. What better time than this for a nefarious villain to start making some noise--enter Lex Luther.
Lex Luther, updated into a computer geek more like Mark Zuckerburg than the rather charismatic power-fiend we used to recognize, is up to his usual notoriously villainous activity. Lex has a plan so evil, so corrupt, so destructive-- that it will force Batman and Superman to set their differences aside and team up--the world needs saving, after all. And because sometimes it takes a woman’s touch to get the job done, Wonder Woman will also make her big screen debut to assist Batman and Superman in their quest to restore law and order to the world. The “Justice League” has been united to form what promises to be a dynamic trio with capabilities of epic proportions.
In Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, you can expect an action-packed clash of superhero egos like nothing you’ve ever seen before, eventually overridden by a righteous compulsion to quash the evil forces that threaten the world.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theatres March 25, 2016. In the meantime, be sure to check out our massive collection of superhero gear- we have everything you need to get ready for all your rather heroic, larger than life endeavors.
