You’d be pretty hard pressed to avoid superhero movies this year. Marvel and DC have really laid their claim on 2016. Whether you’re into the comics or you’ve become a fan through the big screen, one of the most anticipated new releases has been Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The movie follows suit to the latest in the Superman series, and features an epic battle between these two DC superheroes. Are you #TeamSuperman or #TeamBatman? (Is this like Twilight for comic book nerds?)
Superman, played by actor Henry Cavill, isn’t exactly chill with Batman (played by Ben Afleck.) The film takes place in Superman’s home of Metropolis, outlining their battle for the world’s greatest hero. Unfortunately their little scrap is cut short by one of Superman’s enemies, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), who stirs up some trouble. So ultimately the two have to put aside their differences and fight the real threat. Queue Stepbrothers reference: “DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS?!”
And for those pierced and proud superhero buffs, the release of Dawn of Justice is a perfectly legit excuse to sport some fun new body jewelry!
