After offering his fans a first look at the official teaser trailer of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on Twitter, director Zack Snyder used the same platform to reveal 2 new posters that featured Batman and Superman.
He tweeted the posters along with the hashtags #MondayBvSSpecialIMAXEvent and #BatmanvSuperman. The former suggested that the posters will be given out during the IMAX Event on 20th April 2015.
Henry Cavill will return to reprise his role as Superman, with Ben Affleck newly casted as Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane will be reprising their roles from “Man of Steel” as well. New casts include Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
While no official synopsis has been released, the trailer promised that it would be a heightened affair between the 2 superheroes.
In fact, it will take place after the events of “Man of Steel“, where people were being divided into 2 camps: the ones who view Superman as a superhero who deserves their respect, and the ones who see him as an extreme threat who needs to be eradicated. Batman, apparently, falls in the latter category and takes it upon himself to try and stop Superman.
The highly anticipated movie is slated for release on 25th March 2016.
