    Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice [2016]



    Warner Bros. has officially titled the Batman-Superman pic “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” with principal photography starting today in Detroit.

    Pic stars Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck with Zack Snyder directing. Pic also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel,” Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter.

    Film is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing.

    Plot details are unknown.

    Production will take place in Detroit as well as areas around Illinois; Africa; and the South Pacific. Film is set to bow May 6, 2016.

    The title seems to hint as an origin tale for the untitled “Justice League” film that Snyder has already committed to direct and the majority of the cast is expected to appear in.

    Awesome.

    Not keen on Wonder Woman though. Most DC characters are forgettable IMO.

    The hell? If anything, Wonder Woman needs her own movie and getting a bit role in this Batman v Superman is really a slap in the face. Hopefully it will lead to a proper Wonder Woman flick.

    Also at DC Comics characters being forgettable.

    How do people get up in arms about Ben Affleck being Batman (unjustified) and don't give a **** about Jesse Eisenberg being Luthor? FFS

    Lol title. Might as well have called it Batman v Superman: We're Making Justice League Next. Also, the fact that it's not centered under the logo is making me rage a little bit.

    Looks like the Dark Knight Returns Bat emblem. Fat Bat emblem!

    New Batsuit looks weird...looks very statue like.

    The public don't know WW and definitely won't understand how she fits into the very real world of Batman. WW is centered around many supernatural themes... In a traditionally realistic series (Batman) she doesn't make sense. Her solo movie would flop. And that's why we haven't had one.

    Most people in the general public won't even be able to name 5 DC characters.

    No super powers. No super villains. No aliens. No super natural elements. Uses weapons. Uses melee. Uses technology.

    Yeah nothing about Batman suggests realism...

    So villains like Ras al-Ghul are realistic? Or Mr Freeze, Bane, Clayface, Killer Croc, Deathstroke...

    Etrigan/Jason Blood started in Gotham City as well, if you want a direct reference to supernatural elements in the batman universe without relying on other superhero crossovers/teamups.

    You're referencing comics which the public don't read. Batman has always been based on a realistic world in the various shows and movies. Batman & Robin was the most out-there movie but being so camp I doubt viewers are expecting a return to such outrageous villains.
    I think it needs to change if they want to compete with Marvel. You've gotta admit Marvel's movies have done well to adapt the comic world. DC had Batman which people probably forget came from comics with all the shows and movies we've had.

    Who is Jason Blood BTW? That's a name I don't recognise.

    What? V has been used to indicate versus or against for centuries. Why is that so offensive?

    You underestimate the popularity of the Timmiverse shows - Batman TAS, Batman Beyond, Justice League. The Nolan-verse is somewhat more "realistic" for want of a better term, but you can't ignore the body of previous work.

    This is the most hilarious thing you have ever posted.

    Dollar-wise and exposure-wise Batman has succeeded more in the screen media format than in the comic books. Significantly.

    So pray tell how comic books still reign supreme over the movies and shows? Kids grow up with those as their introduction to Batman, not comics which are now a niche market compared to the multi-billion dollar movie powerhouse.

    The only funny thing is your inability to look past your own perspective.

    Is it really that hilarious? Ask a lot of people my age about Superman and the first thing they'll say is "Lois and Clark".

    You're the only one referring to the comic books. You're ignoring the live action TV series, the animated series and the pre-nolan movies, all of which were hardly realistic.

    You keep referring to the shows. Have you actually seen Batman TAS/Batman Beyond/Justice League?

    Those are cartoons... this is not a cartoon movie.
    Thus: realism. Which is what pretty much all Batman movies have been based upon.

    No we haven't had one because Hollywood is sexist. Also how does Iron Man figure into Thor's universe? One's a Norse god, the other's a scientific genius. Kind of like, oh i don't know - Batman?

    Yeah 'cos Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Joker, Flash, Green Lantern are so unheard of

    Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman are pretty unheard of tbh.

    Also, wonder woman is getting a solo movie after her introduction in Batman v Superman.

    It's not like the public have never been exposed to wonder woman, what with Linda Carter's live action series in the 70s.

    Maybe kids who are Murakami's age or younger have a limited perspective, but you can't ignore the over-30s who probably represent the majority of the purchasing power when it comes to films.

    It's highly debatable that any of those are more or less unheard of than the likes of Thor or Iron Man, Silver Surfer or Ghost Rider who got their own movies.

    Green lantern has had an animated series as well as featuring in the Timmiverse shows, not to mention the live action movie. Unheard of is a bit of a stretch.

    The flash also had an excellent live action show, is getting a movie treatment and a spin-off show from Arrow.

    I was exaggerating. I just find the title to be rather clunky.
