In a year which will see Captain America and Iron Man go to war, calling Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016’s most highly anticipated comic book movie still doesn’t feel like a stretch. Bringing these two iconic DC Comics characters together in the same movie should be a historic event and an epic sight.
A lot is riding on director Zack Snyder to make it work, but with Argo’s Chris Terrio writing (he’s also expected to return for Justice League) and a stellar cast, there’s every chance this will be something special.
Batman v Superman is a movie which should feature a lot of things comic book fans have been dying to see play out on the big screen for years, and here we list ten things we’re hoping to see when the Caped Crusader goes to battle with the Man of Steel in a release which may be even bigger than The Avengers.
10. A New And Improved Batcave
We saw a very rough version of the Batcave in Batman Begins, nothing at all in The Dark Knight, and a simplistic version in The Dark Knight Rises. Seeing as Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader is an older and more experienced hero, it would actually be pretty amazing to see that reflected within the cave.
If you’re familiar with the comic books, you’ll know that the Batcave houses a number of vehicles and also items from Batman’s many adventures. Just catching a glimpse of a case containing Robin’s uniform (which fans would know belongs to Jason Todd, the second Robin who was murdered by The Joker) would result in just and incredibly cool moment, and this also presents Zack Snyder with the opportunity to throw in a bunch of really fun Easter Eggs.
Sure, the dinosaur and giant Joker playing card might be a bit much, but then again…
