Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a 2016 American superhero film directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven, and scripted by David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio. Based on the DC Comics characters Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, the film is a sequel to the 2013 film Man of Steel that kickstarted the DC Cinematic Universe. The film stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Harry Lennix, Jason Momoa and Holly Hunter. It will be produced by Dune Entertainment and distributed by Warner Bros.
Development began in 2012 whilst Man of Steel was in post-production when discussions between Goyer and Snyder on how to expand on the universe they created, leading to the idea of a team-up movie. Pre-production began at East Los Angeles College in October 2013, with principal photography starting in May 2014 in Detroit, Michigan.
It was originally going to be released July 17, 2015 but it was later pushed back to a May 6, 2016 release before finally being brought forward to March 25, 2016.
