Batman v Superman DC header

Marvel and DC have always had a comic book rivalry, but when it comes to their films, the former always upstages the latter. Since 2008, Marvel has consistantly delivered one successful hit after another, and that success increased tenfold when Disney acquired Marvel, expanding the brand. They already have their plots mapped out until 2028. Warner Bros have pretty much locked themselves in with DC, and have just started to launch their DC Cinematic Universe with Man of Steel. Though the film was a mild success, we will see what the studio has in store for us with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

This means it will not be an origin story and takes the stance that audiences already know who Superman is and where he came from. The studio wants to make Superman modern, believable, and most of all FUN! Brainiac is the villain so we don’t have to sit through another Lex Luthor real estate scheme (thank God). Also of note, the Daily Planet is struggling due to the internet and the film is setting up a huge Kryptonian mythology.
