Batman Vs. Superman 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 and Batman, the film is a sequel to the 2013 film Man of Steel that kickstarted the DC Cinematic Universe. The film stars Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman, with Ben Affleck potraying Bruce Wayne/Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

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 let to the idea of a team up movie. Principle photography began in October 2013 before moving to Detroit, Michigan.

It was originally going to be released July 17, 2015 but filming got delayed for May 6, 2016.










  • This will be the first time in history that Superman and Batman share the big-screen together.
  • The film was announced at the San Diego Comic Con International 2013, where Zack Snyder brought Harry Lennix up on stage to read a quote from the Dark Knight Returns (the famous "I want you to remember the one man who beat you" speech from The Dark Knight Returns) as the logo appeared on-screen.
  • In an investors conference, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed that Bruce Wayne/Batman will be "kind of tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for a while.". And said that "Ben is perfect for the vision [director Zack Snyder] has for that character.".
  • Warner Bros. has registered the following domain names in consideration for the films title, those include: Man of Steel: Battle the Knight, Man of Steel: Darkness Falls and Man of Steel: Shadow of the Night.

    • I can probably see him playing Darkseid in Justice League (2017) if I'm honest
    • Ares? Atrocitus? Black Manta? He really does look like Darkseid though. Surely it'll be a villain.
