Zack Snyder, director and ersatz leader of the DC Cinematic Universe, appeared on Conan O’Brien last night to promote the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Adding fuel to the collective hype for the hotly anticipated film, Snyder showed off an expanded clip from Batman V Superman. What will you see in the above clip? You’ll see the Man of Steel Henry Cavill prying the Caped Crusader Ben Affleck out of one of his toys and issuing an ultimatum. Apparently, the Last Son of Krypton is none-to-pleased with the Dark Knight and tells him that he shouldn’t show up the next time his Bat-Signal is turned on, and for all intents and purposes, ‘The Bat is Dead’. What could have set Superman off to be so angry with Batfleck? My guess is he probably watched the original Daredevil movie! Baa-dum-tsst! Joking aside, there is certainly a heavy amount of tension. So exciting!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the DC Comics characters Batman and Superman, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is intended to be the follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel and the second installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is directed by Zack Snyder, with a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Gal Gadot. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the first live-action film to feature both Batman and Superman, as well as the first theatrical film to feature live-action portrayals of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.
