Battle of the Best! 5 reasons why you shouldn't miss 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

In less than 24 hours, two of the biggest superheroes are going to battle it out on the big screen! Here are five things to look forward to in this week’s Hollywood release - 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'. (No spoilers ahead)

After Michael Keaton, George Clooney and Christian Bale, Ben Affleck becomes the latest Hollywood star to don the Batsuit in Zack Snyder’s 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. After being criticised for portraying Daredevil in Marvel's 2003 film, Affleck would want to redeem himself with his performance as the Caped Crusader. Affleck’s casting received mixed response as fans debated if he could pull off the role as well as Bale did in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. Though the verdict remains, Affleck will continue to play Batman in three Warner Bros' films: ‘Suicide Squad’ and a two-part ‘Justice League’ movie.

“The greatest gladiator match in the history of the world. God versus man.” That’s how villain Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) describes the battle between Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in the film and we couldn’t agree more! In 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis' most revered, modern-day saviour. And with Batman and Superman at war with each another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in danger. The fans are divided taking sides of their favourite superheroes. Who will win?

Here are some stills that give a glimpse into what to expect when the two superheroes clash!

When was the last time you remember watching a female superhero on the big screen? Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is here to leave a lasting impression! ‘Batman v Superman’ marks the first appearance of Wonder Woman in a live-action theatrical film. Israeli actress Gal Gadot, best known for ‘Fast and Furious’ film series, portrays the superhero who is shown as a demigoddess and the daughter of Zeus. Fans will get a glimpse of her powers and what to expect from the ‘Wonder Woman’ movie that is set to release in 2017.

4. Supervillains: Lex Luthor and Doomsday

‘The Social Network’ star Jesse Eisenberg plays the supervillain Lex Luthor in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'. Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman's rivals. He exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical villain. His intellect, sophistication, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few to challenge the incredible might of Superman.

And if that weren’t menacing enough, we have the monstrous Doomsday to challenge the physical strength of Superman (and, hopefully, Batman too!). Robin Atkin Downes brings Doomsday to life on celluloid through motion-capture performance and voice-overs. Director Zack Snyder has confirmed that Doomsday and details surrounding his mythological origins will be explored in depth in the ‘Justice League’ films.
