Long time readers of TG know we’re not nuts about the prospect of Batman Vs Superman, and we have the sinking feeling it could end up torpedoing the superhero genre altogether.
So now The Wrap tells us the plot for the movie has leaked, and it’s an official release from Warner Brothers, drumming up some advance notice for the flick. So here are the basic details without a spoiler alert, because it’s not the whole movie from beginning to end, just a brief synopsis…
“Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.”
We don’t know what the threat is, of course, but apparently whatever is threatening the world, it sees a great opportunity to take over because these two superheroes are bickering like a married couple. You can connect the dots from here, they’re obviously going to have to get together and fight, or risk losing the world.
Not sure where villain Lex Luthor and the rest of the heroes that will form the Justice League will fit in with all of this, but we’ll see soon enough when Batman Vs Superman hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
