In Pictures: Stars take to red carpet for premiere of Batman V Superman

It's the comic universe's version of a heavyweight championship bout. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as the titular caped comic crusaders, premiered in New York City's Radio City Music Hall on March 20. The movie, in which Cavill's Superman has to fend off Affleck's Batman as well as Jesse Eisenberg's villainous Lex Luthor, opens in Singapore this Thursday (March 24). Here's a look at the red carpet turnout.
