Warner Bros. has now announced the official title of the much-awaited Batman-Superman movie. The movie is officially titled “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” a worthy title that leaves us wondering what Zack Snyder and the rest of the guys have in store for us next.
Perhaps the film will precede the long-awaited Justice League movie? We'll see. But the "Dawn of Justice" subtitle is suggestive, right?
Written by "Argo" writer Chris Terrio and based on a screenplay by David S. Goyer, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will star Henry Cavill who will play the role of Superman, and Ben Affleck as Batman.
Israeli actress Gal Gadot will play the role of Wonder Woman, while Jesse Eisenberg will be Lex Luthor. Other stars include Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White).
Just last week, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder tweeted the first photo of Ben Affleck wearing Batman's costume. The photo also revealed the new Batmobile which caused a stir.
Snyder will be joined by producers Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder who happens to be Zack's wife. Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer, and Geoff Johns will be serving as executive producers of the movie.
According to the press release, the principal photography will happen at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios and on location in and around Detroit. Production will also take place in Africa and the South Pacific, Warner Bros. said.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is expected to open globally on May 6, 2016.
