Is This a New BATMAN v SUPERMAN Synopsis? Posted by: Bill "Jett" Ramey (Follow @BATMANONFILM)
Date: November 3, 2015
This BvS synopsis just showed up on the website for the Odeon Cinema chain in the UK. The question is whether or not this is some sort of official synopsis or simply the chain's self-produced description of the film. Check it out...
"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.
Choose your side: The Man of Steel or The Dark Knight? Learn the answer to the age-old question - who would win? - in BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE."
To me, it sounds like an alternate synopsis for the film – probably for some sort of promotional tie-in – that was prematurely released; and this theater chain just happened to be privy to it being leaked. I contacted Warner Bros. and got the standard “we don’t comment on rumors” response. Regardless, there’s nothing here that anyone didn’t anticipate maybe being a storyline in the film. Consider yourself NOT SPOILED!
BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters on MARCH 25, 2016!
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.
