MyVue.com, a UK theatre chain, has released a new synopsis for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice that gives us just a little bit more detail than previous synopses. It’s not clear just yet if this is a new synopsis released by Warner Bros. or if it’s one written by the chain, though it’s more than likely the latter.

Certainly, this new synopsis doesn’t really give us any information that is specifically new, but it does give us a bit more confirmation and contextualization — Metropolis is “razed to the ground” and the world is unsure how they feel about Superman. Perhaps the most interesting part of the synopsis is the “third man” with a “power greater than either of them…”

Is this Lex Luthor with Doomsday? It would have to be, right?

You can read it for yourself below.


Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth.

As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs.

The rivalry between them is furious, fuelled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction.

The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love.

Zack Snyder (300) returns as director following the huge success of 2013’s Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) in the role of Superman.

Also starring Ben Affleck (Gone Girl) as Batman, Amy Adams (American Hustle) as Lois Lane, and Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 7) as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere.
