With the sudden increase in popularity of comic book movies over the past 5 years, it was only a matter of time before Warner Bros DC comics stepped up a gear to compete with Marvel.  With the recent huge success of Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy and the more recent success of Man of steel it’s no wonder that the first outing for DC to compete against the Avenger is Batman V Superman (or possibly Superman v Batman).Batman V Superman

For the past couple of months you may have heard the speculation of a Justice League Movie being prepped for a Spring 2016 release date, with comic hero’s such as Superman, Batman Green Lantern and Wonderman all taking centre stage .  After this not materializing it has now been confirmed that Batman v Superman has gone into pre-production being shot in Detroit, with Zack Snyder directing and David  Goyer Screen Writing ( team behind Man of Steel).   When Warner confirmed the production of the Batman v Superman Movie it was not made clear what the exact storyline would entail.  However, it has become clear that the movie will initially start with both Batman and superman battling it out between them ( not quite sure how this will work out when one is human and one is invulnerable to all earth based substances unless Batman has a Kryptonite gun for the Job?).   Evidence does also suggest that although they will start out as enemies they will eventually become allies (maybe Batman has to concede) which I am sure will be to fight a common enemy to save the planet from some kind of Armageddon.

Following the momentum of Marvel studio and the success of   films like Hulk, Iron man, Thor, Captain America and of course the Avengers, DC are looking to increase their portfolio of success on the big screen.  The Batman V Superman movie will see the introduction of a new Dark Knight played by Ben Affleck and developing his character to distance themselves from Christian Bales version, of course as suspected Henry Cavill will be returning as The Man of Steel / Clark Kent continuing to develop his character, as he learns to live and be accepted on Earth.

Although the Justice League is off the table for now it seems that Batman and Superman may no be the only superhero’s to be in the new movie, with the possible introduction of Wonderman.  Although this has not been confirmed yet several actress have spoken out that they have been in talks with regards to the part.  So if like me you love your comic book movies, we will have to just sit back and hold on tight for March 2015, to see exactly how this epic movie plans out.
