We’ve seen and heard a lot about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the past week, with EW‘s latest issue taking a very deep dive into the epic superhero adventure. The movie is only mere weeks away, and perhaps director Zack Snyder has already said too much about what we can expect. He even goes as far as to hint at the big fight, revealing some key details that would perhaps be better saved for a first viewing. The filmmaker does offer a few SPOILERS, so tread carefully.
The big debate, even before the movie was announced, has always been: How can The Dark Knight beat the Last Son of Krypton? Bruce Wayne has no chance of taking this super powered alien down in a fair fight. But as Zack Snyder tells it, this definitely won’t be a fair fight. Batman isn’t foolish enough to rush in and just start swinging at the Man of Steel. Now, this mastermind has completely plotted out his big battle and choreographed it before hand. He just needs to get Superman in the right place at the right time.
Before the big fight takes place, we will see Bruce planning the entire thing out. We’ll watch as he plants various traps in an abandoned stockyard. His final cherry on top is a Kryptonite spear that he wedges firmly in the ground. Explains Zack Snyder.
“Superman doesn’t have to be as much of a chess player as Batman. He paces it off. Then when he throws Superman, the spear is right there. So you’re like, wait a minute, did he [plan] every bit? He know every move?”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice picks up where 2013’s Man of Steel left off. 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 Batman, Amy Adams (American Hustle) as Lois Lane, and Gal Gadot (Fast & 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. We also have some epic new photos for you to check out before the movie hits in just a few short weeks.
