UK theater chain VUE has released a brand new synopsis for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. In terms of providing specific plot details or character information we haven’t already heard, it’s a bit thin, but it does offer a very interesting insight into the mindset of the Dark Knight as he prepares to take the fight to the Last Son of Krypton.
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.
Does that bit about suiting up as the Caped Crusader “to right Superman’s wrongs” suggest Bruce Wayne had been inactive as Gotham’s crime fighter for a period of time leading up to that? It would certainly draw some parallels with Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, which has been said to be a big influence on the movie.
We’ll find out for ourselves very soon indeed, as Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is set to hit theaters on March 25.
