WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
With Clark Kent/Superman (Cavill) becoming more and more of a controversial figure, Bruce Wayne (Affleck) – fearful of the damage someone like Kal-El can do – decides to become the Batman once more and confront the last son of Krypton in an epic showdown. However, when a new threat arrives in the form of Lex Luthor (Eisenberg) and his deadly creation, the two superheroes – as well as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (Gadot) – must come together and stop Luthor’s scheme before it’s too late…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Although Man of Steel was heavily divisive, hopes are high that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is at the very least a minor improvement on that film, with the introduction of Ben Affleck as Batman and the first ever big-screen incarnation of Wonder Woman in particular gathering the most curiosity.
