Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies of 2016, hitting theaters March 25. As we continue the countdown to this highly-anticipated release, a new synopsis has been released, courtesy of Vue. We also have new action figure photos that tease Lex Luthor's mech suit. Take a look at the detailed synopsis below.
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 (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck (Gone Girl) as Gone Girl, Amy Adams (American Hustle) as Lois Lane, and Gal Gadot (Furious 7) 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 also includes Jena Malone, Jeffrey Dean Morgan Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter. It isn't known if there will be another trailer released as we get closer and closer to the March 25 release date. In the meantime, take a look at these new action figure photos below.
