There were plenty of photos and teases about who is actually in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but what about the plot! Warner Bros. swoops in today like a bird, like a plane by releasing the official plot synopsis, which reads:
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.
It’s not unlike Batman, to fear the capabilities of the Man of Steel, but enough to actually go to war with him? Especially with other presumable threats still present. It’s not quite Dark Knight Returns, which the teaser and photos really portrayed, but the plot is still also pretty basic. But at least it’s something!
