BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (12A, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM FRIDAY)
DC Comics have finally jumped on the superhero ensemble bandwagon – with this enticing set-up to a Justice League film.
After the trillion of dollars worth of damage caused by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) battle with General Zod in Metropolis during the climax of his stand-alone movie, a growing number of people are now seeing the Man of Steel as a threat to humanity.
Despite being a beacon of hope to parts of society, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his Batman alter-ego see him as a reckless power that mustn’t be left ungoverned – and wants to seek justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth.
But while the two superhero powers get embroiled in a bitter feud, a terrifying new threat arises from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor – after getting his hands on Zod’s DNA – providing a foe that is more powerful than both of them.
Luckily Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is on hand to sort out the petty squabbling – with rumoured cameos from the likes of Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
