Batman is Top Billing in Superman Sequel, Titled ‘Dawn of Justice’


Warner Bros.’ upcoming Man of Steel sequel stars Ben Affleck as Batman alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman. The studio announced Wednesday that the 2016 blockbuster is officially titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The term “Dawn of Justice,” is a nod to the Justice League movie that Warner Bros. and DC Comics already have planned for the year 2018. Man of Steel director Zach Snyder will also direct the sequel. Snyder has directed numerous action flicks, including 300, Sucker Punch, and Watchmen. 

The movie’s official logo is a fine-tuning of the one that Snyder unveiled during Comic Con last year. The House of El glyph from the first film is carved into the same bat symbol that appears on the new Batman’s chest.

In addition to Cavill and Affleck, Gal Gadot will star as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg is baddie Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons will play Batman”s right hand man Alfred, and Holly Hunter costars a new role created for the film. In addition, Man of Steel actors Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane will return for the sequel.

Affleck famously received seriously mixed responses when it was announced that he would be the one to wear the bat wings in Dawn  of Justice. But fans of the actor look forward to seeing him play the dark, dramatic comic book legend.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will opens on May 6, 2016.
