It’s official. We live in the age of the superhero more than ever. The film franchises for the Marvel and DC universes biggest hitters bring in billions as we the eager masses demand more and more. There doesn’t seem to be any end in sight with a ton of highly anticipated films on their way and with both DC and Marvel having superhero films slated until 2020 and what will undoubtedly be way beyond that there is no reason to believe that the interest in caped crusaders and beyond is going anywhere fast.
With only the exception of Star Wars producing more hype we are set to look forward to the clash of two titans of the genre and perhaps the very best known and defining superheroes of all very soon. I am of course talking about Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice which is slated for a March 2016 release and will pit Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck) against each other.
The fun doesn’t stop there though with Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) also getting involved in the action. It’s one of our most highly anticipated films of the year and along with Suicide Squad also dropping in the summer and bringing its own boat-load of hype, 2016 will no doubt continue the trend of superhero hijinks as DC looks to pull back some important ground against Marvel that has itself been extremley successful with their own Avengers franchise and spin-offs.
