‘Batman vs. Superman’ to Debut Exclusive Sneak Peek During Monday’s ‘Gotham’
Alright, Batman and Superman fans, listen up. If you haven’t been watching Gotham (or if you’ve been catching up with it on your DVR), FOX has a good reason for you to tune in to the midseason finale on Monday, November 30. A new, exclusive sneak peek at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to air sometime during the episode, and to promote the special event, some of the cast members of the Batman origin series have revealed which side they’re on in the upcoming superhero super-battle.
Unsurprisingly, many of the actors on Gotham have chosen Batman’s side, including Morena Baccarin and Donal Logue, but there’s at least one outlier who gleefully admits he’s in Superman’s corner — he does have superpowers, after all.
We’re about six months away from the release of Zack Snyder’s superhero film, which is set to really kick off the new DC movie universe, followed by the solo Wonder Woman movie and Justice League: Part One. Starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Superman, and Gal Gadot making her debut as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, the synopsis for Batman v Superman reads as follows:
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.
We’ve already seen a teaser and extended trailer for the film, as well as multiple images and behind-the-scenes featurettes, boasting a new Batmobile, a new take on a classic villain and an intense battle between two iconic heroes, based in part on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns story.
Written by Chris Terrio (Argo) and David S. Goyer, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane reprising their roles from Man of Steel. The film also features a cameo from Jason Momoa, making his debut as Aquaman.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
