The new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has just dropped and it features some previously unseen footage from the eagerly anticipated new release.
The film, which has a March 25 release date, sees Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.
Diane Lane stars as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves.
The plot synopsis for the film reads: “At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.
“Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.”
With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It’s up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.
In January 2014, Warner Bros. announced that the film was delayed from its original July 17, 2015 release date, and moved to May 6, 2016, in order to give the filmmakers “time to realise fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.”
