While no solid story details have been confirmed for Batman Vs. Superman, directorZack Snyder reveals in a recent interview that Frank Miller‘s seminal comic book miniseries The Dark Knight Returns will serve to shape the history between the two iconic DC Comics superheroes.
When Warner Bros. announced at Comic-Con 2013 that their sequel to Man of Steel will feature both Bruce Wayne and Kal-El, they did so by enlisting actor Harry Lennix to read the following line from The Dark Knight Returns, which was adapted into a two-part animated movie last year.
The filmmaker also went onto to speak about the most controversial, and often discussed aspect of the movie: Why Ben Affleck was the right actor to play an older Bruce Wayne/Batman.
Production will begin in Detroit this spring on Batman Vs. Superman, which also starsAmy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White),Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth).
Batman Vs. Superman comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg,Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
