Possible synopsis revealed for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

06.09.2015

Update: WB has confirmed the below synopsis is the real deal.

It doesn't take a Lex Luthor to figure out the plot to a movie entitled BATMAN V SUPERMAN, but there's always a nice sense of finality that comes with a studio's official synopsis for a film such as this. It's too early to tell how the outcome will fare but by this time next year, we will have seen Batman and Superman duke it out on the big screen! How cool is that?!? In any event, Collider is reporting that they've gotten their hands on the official synopsis. Real deal or no, it looks like what we can expect see.

The synopsis, as listed by Collider:

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.

So what do you make of this new threat? Lex Luthor? And how do Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman fit into the picture? Many complained that Marvel's AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON felt like it was setting up too much to be enjoyable on its own, and given the DAWN OF JUSTICE moniker, I hope this film doesn't feel the same way. Regardless, one of the most ambitious comic book movies of all time is on the horizon. Let's see if Zack Snyder and Co. can deliver.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

Whilst I understand the need for people like Wayne and Lex to be very vary of Superman...as should any sane person given what transpired in the last movie I still can't see why Batman will fight Superman. Wayne would research the crap out of him...always be cautious about him...but will recognise he's good. Batman Return sets up a good reason why they fight and even that throw Batman dishes out when they first meet in the 1990's animated series had a reason behind it but I hope to god...the

in a few months...

Fearing the actions of god-like super heroes left unchecked, the formidable Tony Stark takes on SHIELD’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Iron Man and Captain America at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

I really hoped Chris Terrio taking over the writing duties would elevate it, but if this is in fact the real synopsis, all I can picture is David Goyer delivering this pitch in front of executives, while playing with action figures. "And then Batman says, 'Oh no you don't!' Then Superman goes swoosh and says, 'You can't defeat me!' And then boom, punch, bam, boom, punch, punch, punch, punch, kick, argh!"

here is the thing. David Goyer cant write for shit. What he can do though, is write one hell of a synopsis. Someone else writing up that synopsis into a workable script. NOW THAT IS KEY!!!

Conman, I'll give you that. As horrendous of a writer/director he is, he's a solid idea man. He usually piggy back's great with far stronger directors and writers. That synopsis just doesn't sound intriguing, though I doubt it's validity. Hopefully Affleck bringing Terrio abroad does it justice.

This is gonna blow - I'm sorry to say but Snyder film and story telling skills are utter shite. The doomsday bit is horrible, essentially recycling the last films villain seems a cop out to me. As for the whole supporting cast I just don't see it working I'm sorry. Yes I like Marvel but I'm not biased in fact Superman and Batman were always my favourite hero yet this film will not live up to it potential. I think it will make money but only 600-750 million and I also can see 2/3 star reviews.

That is one thing Marvel has done well, DC seems too rushed and many agree MOS was too over the top car wreck CGI porn. It lacks most of the charm that Superman 1&2 had and even the early Tim Burton Batman films had a sense of structure to them. I really want this film to well and rival Marvels monopoly but I just don't trust Synder

i don't know if "charm" is what anyone is looking for. but man of steel had tons of heart which no one ever gives it credit for. little over the top at the end with all of the destruction, but that's what most movies do now. i would've much rather had too much then too little and be boring. damn sure not going to go hate hate on this universe until i actually see the movie. i think it's going to be some of the best shit we've ever seen. can't wait personally.

Excellent here come the down voting fan boys who are so hellbent on protecting their wonderful batman vs superman concept they miss the point I make.
In answer to you Tugga07 I'm not hating on the film, I'm entitled to an opinion and all I'm saying is I don't think it's in good hands. MOS did $680 on a budget of $225 - that's not that impressive, then look at Synders other films Watchmen 4/5 out of 10, sucker punch 2/10 these are the type of films he produces. Yes 300 was a decent film but

These films should have charm - after all Superman is supposed to be the embodiment of true justice and good not som alien god that brings the smack down and levels whole cities. When you say the best shit we've ever seen? What do you mean?

Man of Steel was promising but turned to garbage. The teaser for this started out promising but turned to garbage. The movie is gonna be garbage. Whole heartedly agree with you Optimus. Why else release it in March? I feel they're not so confident in this and are simply trying to maximize their opening weekend and steer it away from the crop of summer movies that'll cut into its potential grosses. Hopefully I'm wrong, I'd love to see this work, but everything I've seen up to this point isn't

@scorpio77 - it's called a prediction you moron - and the future is good actually, in the future people with Beavis and Butthead graphics are still considered losers.
@dantheflyman I'm not hating on Snyder I'm stating the facts that his other movies were not well received by audiences or critics. I think he's a god a unique style but like a lot of directors these days can't tell a story so you end with a computer game like film with no character development and often no storyline. Look at the

Look at the way he ruined zod in the first film - did anyone care? The whole Russell Crowe back from the dead let me show you who are and by the way even on our planet we all wear black here's a bright blue suit for you???
@darthjeff 2016 is good for you, the marriage aside Star Wars makes a ton of money even when it is revealed the person behind the enemy's uprising and return is JarJar Binks
@fury159 how nice to see someone else who understands the point I'm making. Bring on March next year when I can wallow in my delight of being right when this movie gets bashed to pieces

Two things, and before I say either of them, I actually really hope this movie is awesome.
1. Superman's fist fight against Zod in MoS leveled complete friggin buildings. Unless they give Batman superhuman strength, I still don't see how a fight between these two could be anywhere close to fair.
2. It is beyond obvious that a greater threat will unite the both of them, causing them to be allies, and thus setting up Justice League. Neither the bat nor supes will walk away the clear "winner" of

It was revealed weeks ago that Batman and Superman will team up to fight Doomsday, who is the re-animated corps of Zod, who was reverse-engineered by Lex Luthor. It was also revealed that the fight we see in the teaser is part of a dream sequence, not an actual, official thrown down. It was also established that Batman will acquire kryptonite in order to fight Superman. Everything you've pointed it out as flaws in the film's logic have been addressed by multiple sources....how often do you come

Americanmoviefan, chill. I knew most of that, I was speaking in generalities. I didn't read the bit about kryptonite. Just because I don't comment on every article doesn't mean I'm not reading them. In terms of Doomsday, I was making the general point that it's always these greater-threat villains that unite superhero "enemies," and it's just glaringly obvious. Yes, it was announced that they would team up. I'm saying the announcement is just unnecessary as we all know they're not gonna

Perhaps the threat that arises will be Doomsday? It would be a big and dangerous enough reason for Superman and Batman to quit fighting with one another and for Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg to join in on the fight.

I have faith this won't be overwhelmed the way Ultron was. Because Marvel avoids giving their characters real pathos, real stakes, their drama - fictional as all of this is no matter what- is flimsy at best. The arguments you see between Stark, Rogers, etc. feel trumped up for a movie with very little true conflict. With DC, because they're willing to go darker, the conflicts between characters will be more palpable, I think, which will make the multiple storylines feel more satisfying.

its funny how Marvel fans say this movie is overbloated with BAtman Superman Lex and cameos from wonder woman/cyborg and aquaman.

then Avengers 2 comes out and its overbloated with Thor even being reliquinshed to a minor supporting role.

Then they announce Cap 3 with
CAP / STARK / BUCKY / FALCON / CROSSBONES / BW / HAWKEYE / AGENT13 / VISION / SCARLETT WITCH / War MAchine / Ant Man / SPIDERMAN / Ross Thunderbolt

and all they do is CHEER CHEER CHEER and its apparently NOT

I disagree. The most I've seen everyone ever panicked in a cinema, is when Wall-E ran over his little bug friend in the first forty minutes of the Wall-E movie. Everyone gasped in utter horror. That movie didn't need darkness to put across the character pathos or stakes, it was whimsical and light-hearted, but that moment was mortifying. 'Dark and gritty' is a poor substitute that people continue to confuse for genuine character and emotion. It's like people are using it as a short cut, or

here is the difference. You are watching a childrens movie and watching it through childrens eyes. You accustom yourself to childlike wonder. So you react when the only friend a robot has in a childs movie is killed. However when you move to more adult movies, running over a bug would have zero sympathy. What if Al Pacino ran over a bug in HEAT. OH [link] Your argument has zero validity because they are completely different movies.

Re: Guy: Your example isn't germane to the films in question because cute, innocent WALL-E isn't a superhero who beats, destroys and kills his way to doing his job. The pathos of Pixar films tends to be the kind that illicits "d'aww" from audience members, as opposed to the visceral nature of people betraying one another, doing morally gray things and making hard decisions for the greater good that might get certain people hurt or killed, etc. The debate in violence and character interplay in

In my humble opinion.

Again, I disagree. ConMan I'm not watching a child's movie through 'child's eyes" I'm watching it as an adult willing to engage in any text. Your comparison between Pacino running over a coach roach in Heat is ridiculous as at no point was a coachroach defined as Pacino's only friend. I saw a character accidentally hurting another character that meant a lot to him, in a light-hearted and whimsical film and my gut reacted the same way as when I see a character hurt another character they care

I saw a character accidentally hurting another character that meant a lot to him, in a light-hearted and whimsical film and my gut reacted the same way as when I see a character hurt another character they care about in an adult movie. The violence or darkness of a movie has nothing to do with the effectiveness that a character's emotions are effectively portrayed.

And americanmovie fan again, you're only assuming a superhero movie is supposed to have people killing each other to up the stakes and give true darkness. Batman doesn't kill people, Superman shouldn't actually kill people. I understand the attraction to moral greyness and so forth, but just because those things exist in a film doesn't suddenly make that films application of conflict, emotion and resolution mean more than those who don't have that level of darkness throughout them. This is my whole point. A violent and emotionally dark film with crap characters, emotion and conflict is worse than a light-hearted movie film that can still have moments of total pathos. A dark film that does all of these things well, is still no better off than a light-hearted movie that also does them well. Dark doesn't mean these things are done better or hit any harder by proxy.

Avengers 1 was a lovely pop-culture, light-hearted, whizz bang kind of film. For kids, for adults, it was just a complete joy. But when Coulson was stabbed we all felt it, infact I'd even go as far as to say we probably felt it more because the surrounding movie wasn't all gloom and doom.

Sorry Guy, but when Colson got got, it felt like a cop out. Same as (spoiler?) Quicksilver eating it in Avengers 2. Those characters exist so that the film can give us "consequences" without risking the future sequels of the main draws. While Marvel has examples of characters dying and being resurrected, Marvel/Disney refuses to touch the most intriguing storylunes (like hinting at Demon in a Bottle in Iron Man 1 and then just forgoing it for the RDJ version of Tony Stark we know and love- lets

While Marvel has examples of characters dying and being resurrected, Marvel/Disney refuses to touch the most intriguing storylunes (like hinting at Demon in a Bottle in Iron Man 1 and then just forgoing it for the RDJ version of Tony Stark we know and love- lets be clear here, the current iteration of Stark is just RDJ doing his thing, not an actual on screen translation of the Tony Stark we know from comics.) But look at Superman and Batman- this storyline IS from the comics. The Joker has killed Robin in this universe. There are consequences. I'm shocked they aren't making Suicide Squad R-rated.
5:23PM on 06/09/2015
How can you say there are consequences to a universe that is rumored to have killed off a Robin character that we've never met to associate with, and is building towards a Justice League movie starring the main two draws (and two or three extras) of this film already?
I guess we'll never agree when you say that Coulson's death meant nothing to you, the audience seemed to find it heart wrenching enough to start a #CoulsonsAlive online movement which got him his own show. Putting aside the fact

I guess we'll never agree when you say that Coulson's death meant nothing to you, the audience seemed to find it heart wrenching enough to start a #CoulsonsAlive online movement which got him his own show. Putting aside the fact that Superman shouldn't really be straight up murdering anyone, there's was so much mindless destruction in and death in Superman that the consequences just evaporated. How can you promote the "shades of grey" argument, in a movie where the hero stands around making out with Lois Lane in a crumbled city with millions dying around him, before he simply flies off? Again the movie was dark, but had little to no actual consequence due to the state of the writing and film-making. The "dark and gritty" edge put no actual emotion forth at all, as I said earlier it's simply an illusion of "adult emotions", an aesthetic smoke screen.
12:01PM on 06/09/2015
The movie definitely has potential to be good. I think the key is to focus mainly on Superman and Batman coming into conflict with each other and then resolving the conflict to take on the underlying threat/danger in the movie. My bet is it will be Lex Luthor and something he's created/done (presumably something to do with real estate).

As far as Wonder Woman and Aquaman. I think the goal is to keep them as underdeveloped as possible. Introduce the characters, don't focus too much on
The movie definitely has potential to be good. I think the key is to focus mainly on Superman and Batman coming into conflict with each other and then resolving the conflict to take on the underlying threat/danger in the movie. My bet is it will be Lex Luthor and something he's created/done (presumably something to do with real estate).

As far as Wonder Woman and Aquaman. I think the goal is to keep them as underdeveloped as possible. Introduce the characters, don't focus too much on explaining their back story. Just that they're there and they reveal themselves to be super powered as well. Leave the explanation of their back story for their respective solo movies. This way it avoids the film feeling too crowded and gives the solo movies something to tell as part of the story.

I actually like this idea. Have them kinda show up in the distance during a massive, chaotic battle scene, maybe have a couple of brief interactions between them and Supes and/or Batman, but only in the context of BM/SM determining if they are friend or foe based on their actions, but no mini-Justice League meeting where they expositorily espouse for ten or fifteen minutes just to bring us up to speed, tie everything together...Again, Man of Steel seemed to weave exposition into the dialogue

Not much, but just a wee bit more.
