3. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (3/25)

Dir. Zack Snyder

19 of 21

Despite landing at #3 on the list, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice easily has a case for the top spot. Who isn’t eagerly awaiting the definitive answer to the question: Who would win in a fight between the two biggest comic book superheroes of all time? For those who haven’t perused Detective Comics, strap in for a crazy adventure. Director Zack Snyder’s (300, Watchmen) newest graphic novel adaptation directly follows his last film, the 2013 triumph Man of Steel which kick-started the cinematic DC Universe. In the sequel/ spinoff, a bitter, aged Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck—Argo) sees an alien threat in Superman (Henry Cavill—The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), as does global businessman Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg—The End of the Tour). Wayne decides Batman is the solution to solving this threat as Luthor pokes his nose around this mess, as well. Will the heroes battle—or take the fight where it truly belongs? Perhaps both?
