Post the Fortune magazine “interview” featuring Lex Luthor (played by Jessie Eisenberg) earlier this week, the viral marketing campaign for the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is picking up speed with a new video from LexCorp, which premiered at this year’s New York Comic-Con. The video can be viewed in the player below. The official synopsis goes;
“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.”
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will see the return of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, and introduce Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring in the film alongside Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will be Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, and returning from Man of Steel as Lois Lane, Perry White and Martha Kent will be Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane respectively. Jeremy Irons also joins the cast as Alfred Pennyworth, fan-favorite butler and confidant to Bruce Wayne and Holly Hunter in an original role created especially for the film. Jason Momoa will also be appearing as Aquaman.
Batman and Superman will clash on silver screens worldwide on March 25, 2016, thus kicking off what promises to be a gluttonous slew of DC Comics related films.
