For the first time ever, fans will get to see two of DC Comics' most iconic superheroes go toe-to-toe when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25. Last year, Warner Bros. released two character posters, featuring Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill), whose faces were covered by their enemy's logo. As the countdown to this epic superhero battle continues, Warner Bros. has released a new poster which combines these designs and brings both of these heroes together. And its now looming large in the heart of New York City.
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. A massive version of this poster was first spotted in New York City earlier today, so perhaps you may get to see a much bigger version of this one-sheet in a city near you very soon. Take a look at the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice poster below, along with the shot from Instagram featuring this one-sheet on display in the Big Apple.
