Batman v Superman TV Spot: Lex Luthor Brings Heroes Together
Yesterday, Warner Bros. debuted the first TV spot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which aired during the NFL Playoffs yesterday. Today we get the second TV spot, which features the first meeting between Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Gotham's Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). We also get another glimpse at the eccentric villain Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), who helped bring these characters together.
Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society.
He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman's wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction.
The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love. Zack Snyder (300) returns as director following the huge success of 2013's Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere.
The supporting cast includes Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. Take a look at this thrilling footage, then prepare for the fight of the century this March, when Batman v Superman hits screens everywhere. Will this be the biggest blockbuster of 2016?
