Originally set for release next year in the slot now held by Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man, Warner Bros. Untitled Batman/Superman movie promises to be one of 2016’s biggest releases.

There had been talk of bringing these two iconic heroes together on the big screen for years, but with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy wrapping up before the release of Man of Steel, many fans assumed that they would be waiting for a very long time to see this happen, especially as we’ve heard very little about a Justice League movie.

Here, we’ve compiled not only a list of things you need to know about the movie, but also our own thoughts on the comic books which will likely influence Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated release and a recap of some of the biggest announcements which have so far been made in regards to Batman Vs. Superman.

As always, we’re sure you all have your own thoughts on these selections, so be sure to check them out below and then let us know what you think in the usual place!

20. Harry Lennix’s Comic-Con Speech

Harry Lennix

“I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all your most private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember, the one man who beat you.”

That is what the impressively voiced Harry Lennix read out at the Warner Bros. panel during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, something which many fans in attendance instantly realised the significance of before the logo above was displayed on the screen. It’s a quote from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, and while the movie won’t be based on that celebrated story arc, it will apparently serve as an influence for Zack Snyder’s movie. The director is a big comic book fan, and the fact that he’s turning to this type of material for inspiration is very welcome news indeed.

    So do you think Batman vs. Superman will end with Batman and Superman becoming friends or will they try and eek out the storyline for as long as possible?

    I’d guess that their relationship will be pretty adversarial when they’re forced to work together, but they’ll end up allies by the end. Of course, a Batman Vs. Superman 2 movie would probably do even better box office than Man of Steel 2 or a new Batman movie…seems like they’re building to Justice League though! 🙂

    I honestly think Tao (or whatever his name is) is cast as Metallo. he looks the part, and he would be a good minor villain that Lex hires to “test” this new green substance and its radioactive properties, and he hires him to track or kill superman. he finds out that the substance has an effect on superman, and they fight. batsman appears and saves superman just in time. that gives us a chance to see how well seasoned this Bats is, and also, that leads to the team up between batman and superman for the first time, where bats introduces himself and says he’s been watching Clark. I think it’d be a clever idea and has a lot of potential.

    I would like to see a nod to the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship, but it has existed before New 52, so it’s not really that recent.
