"Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?" Warner Bros. has released the first official teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which hits theaters on March 25th, 2016.

Directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay by Chris Terrio (in turn based on a screenplay by David S.

Watch The Official First Trailer For ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’

20 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We thought this might happen! Around about 24 hours after it first leaked (badly) Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice director Zack Snyder has shared the official trailer himself on Twitter with the amusing hashtags #NotBlurry #NotPirated, which is more than fair enough.

There’s obviously been a lot of excitement over another legendary title but this first look gives us a huge insight to where things are going. It seems that Supes, the old Man of Steel (Henry Cavill), has taken on a God-like persona and he doesn’t appear to be fighting the love. I’m assuming that our older, angry Batman (Ben Affleck) isn’t too happy with what he sees and will be out to bring back order and balance.

Snyder’s already trademark style is all over what you see here and as long as it’s a far distance from Sucker Punch, it’ll still grab my attention. »

According to reports, director Zack Snyder's big screen adaptation of DC Comics' "Justice League", following the continuity of "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", will feature 2 main super-villains from the DC Universe:

'Arrow'/'Flash' Spinoff Casts 'Pippin' Star as Hawkgirl

30 March 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rising star Ciara Renee has signed on to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl in The CW's Arrow/Flash Spinoff. Earlier this month, we reported that the series will introduce three characters from the DC Comics who have never been seen on TV before. One of these characters was known as the "Female Warrior," described as, "a twentysomething Latina who is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day." The character becomes a "fierce warrior" by night, to the extent, "that sometimes she can become a threat to others." Hawkgirl was previously featured on Smallville and in the animated series Justice League, so this character might not be the "Female Warrior" in question. Though it should be noted that the Smallville version of the character was Kenrda's Aunt Shayera Hall.

Deadline speculates that the previously-confirmed Caity Lotz may play the Female Warrior, since her Arrow character Sara Lance, »

Sneak Peek the first official look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing young 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at the actor, with and without his hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

The original 'Alexander Joseph "Lex" Luthor', created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted in "Action Comics" #23 (April 1940), with a full head of red hair...

...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.

Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.

In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

'Batman v Superman' Script Is Amazing Says Jeremy Irons

21 March 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it may seem like it's taking Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice longer to reach the big screen than most modern blockbusters, it's only because we heard about it so early in the process. Still, more than two years after it was first announced at Comic-Con 2013, there is so much we don't know about the actual story. We know that it has an epic fight between its two title characters. And we also know that it sets up Justice League Part 1. But the plot remains a mystery. And so does Jeremy Irons' take on iconic Butler and all-around servant Alfred. The actor himself isn't doing anything to make the picture any clearer. But he does have much praise for the screenplay.

Jeremy Irons attended the Lucca Film Festival this past week. And of course, he was asked about working with director Zack Snyder in creating a new take »
