Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was a brooding, brutal blockbuster and the start of something very exciting indeed. We cannot wait to see Wonder Woman, Justice League and all the movies that are planned to follow it.

Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable vigilante takes on Metropolis' 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 each other, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it has ever known before.

Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S.Goyer serving as executive producers.
