Batman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939). Originally named "the Bat-Man", the character is also referred to by such epithets as the "Caped Crusader", the "Dark Knight", and the "World's Greatest Detective".
Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, an American billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered by a sense of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and crafts a bat-inspired persona to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictionalGotham City, with assistance from various supporting characters, including his butler Alfred, police commissioner Jim Gordon, and vigilante allies such as Robin. Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess any superpowers; rather, he relies on his genius intellect, physical prowess, martial arts abilities, detective skills, science and technology, vast wealth, provocation of fear and intimidation, and an indomitable will. A large assortment of villains make up Batman's rogues gallery, including hisarchenemy the Joker.
Batman became popular soon after his introduction and gained his own comic book title, Batman, in 1940. As the decades went on, differing interpretations of the character emerged. The late 1960s Batman television series used a camp aesthetic, which continued to be associated with the character for years after the show ended. Various creators worked to return the character to his dark roots, culminating in 1986 with The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. The success of Warner Bros.' live-actionBatman feature films have subsequently helped maintain public interest in the character.

Superman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. He was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1933; later, in 1938, the character was sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics). Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and subsequently appeared in various radio serials, newspaper strips, television programs, films, and video games. With this success, Superman helped to create the superhero genre and establish its primacy within the American comic book.
Superman's appearance is distinctive and iconic; he usually wears a blue costume, red cape, and stylized red-and-yellow "S" shield on his chest. This shield is used in a myriad of media to symbolize the character. The origin story of Supermanrelates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early on he started to display various superhuman abilities, which, upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity through a secret "Superman" identity. Superman resides and operates in the fictional American city of Metropolis. As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper. Superman's love interest is generally Lois Lane, and his archenemy is supervillain Lex Luthor. He is typically a member of theJustice League and close ally of Batman and Wonder Woman. Like other characters in the DC Universe, several alternate versions of Superman have been produced.
Batman vs Superman the Dawn of justice
must watch & share
The idea of a Batman/Superman movie has been around so long that it was even made into an Easter Egg gag in the Will Smith action movie I Am Legend - the film jokingly dated for release only after the Earth had been devastated by an apocalyptic plague. Fortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait for the end of the world to finally see the movie, as Zack Snyder will be delivering Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.
The project was first announced all the way back in summer 2013 at San Diego Comic Con, and in the time since then we’ve seen a seemingly endless stream of news, rumors, and even some footage pop up online. The good news is that we’ve been closely following all of it, and have collected all of the need-to-know info in this handy guide. How will Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice be affected by its predecessor, Man of Steel? When is the movie coming out in theaters? Who is directing? Who will star? Find all of the answers to those questions and more below, but first let's watch the latest trailer!
So what's really going on in the film? Read on to find out everything there is to know about Batman v Superman.
Warner Bros. released an official plot synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and watching the footage we’ve seen so far, one can at least kind of pick up on what this movie is putting down. It seems that the world of the growing DC Cinematic Universe has labeled Superman (Henry Cavill) a controversial figure after the events seen in Man of Steel, and while there are many in the world who see him as a superhero, there are many others who view him as an extreme threat. Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman (Ben Affleck) falls into the latter category, having been at ground zero during Supes’ big climactic battle with General Zod and lost people during the catastrophe. As a result, he uses his incredible resources to do what he can to try and stop the perceived alien menace.
Following in the footsteps of Marvel Studios and starting to build a larger cinematic universe, Warner Bros. is making Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice both to introduce a new take on the Caped Crusader and to build on what has already been established with the Man of Tomorrow. As mentioned, Henry Cavill will be returning to play Clark Kent/Superman, and is expected that his arc will find him continuing to learn how to live up to his destiny, while also trying to find his place on Earth. The hero will definitely have to deal with the fact that Man of Steel had him not only killing his enemy, General Zod, but also leveling half of Metropolis in the battle beforehand. Going by the footage we’ve seen, it doesn’t look like he’s extremely uncomfortable with either his deification or the incredible amount of hate for him swelling in society – though it does seem like he has some kind of grudge against the "bat vigilante
Directors Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher brought us Batmobiles full of flash and style, and Christopher Nolan made one that was essentially a tank, but for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder has found a design that basically splits the difference between those two styles. Pictured above is the brand new model, which was released after months of teasing. Some have objected to the presence of a giant gun turret on the front, given Batman’s rules against killing and general unwillingness to handle firearms, but we don’t currently know if it carries a lethal payload. Regardless, we can’t wait to see this thing tearing through the streets of Gotham and, perhaps, Metropolis. We've recently learned some of the specs of the new Batmobile, and it is an impressive ride to be sure. It’s fully armored, equipped with anti-ballistics devices, is stealth capable, and weighs a whopping 7000 pounds. Oh yeah, it also has a top speed of 205 mph
Bruce Wayne has nearly unlimited access to money and consequently has all of those badass crime fighting toys we’ve always been jealous of. So of course the Batmobile isn’t going to be his only means of transportation. We caught a quick glimpse of the Batwing in the first Dawn of Justice trailer, and some concept art showed off an even better picture. Given that Superman can fly, it stands to reason that Bats is going to need a vehicle that will allow him to follow the Kryptonian should he decide to take to the skies. We’ve seen the armaments in action, thanks to previewed footage, but you have to assume this will also be a fast, well-armored, maneuverable craft in order to contend with Kal-El’s abilities. And just to be on the safe side, should Superman get his hands on the Batwing, Bruce has probably installed some powerful defenses, or at least a couple of backdoor escape hatches.
