LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) – Time Warner Inc’s Warner Bros studio on Wednesday unveiled the title of director Zack Snyder’s anticipated superhero sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which the two legendary DC Comics heroes will face off.

The film, scheduled for release on May 6, 2016, is the follow-up to last year’s Man Of Steel, which grossed US$668 million (S$835.7 million) in worldwide ticket sales.

Dawn Of Justice will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman opposite Argo actor and director Ben Affleck as Batman, a choice that split many fans of the franchise.

The film will also star Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
