‘Batman v Superman’ film ‘99.9% done’, says director

Movie set to open in cinemas worldwide on March 25

Work on upcoming “superhero mash-up movie” Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is still in progress despite its release looming next month, the director has said.

The film is set to open in cinemas worldwide on March 25. However, director Zack Snyder has told the Hall of Justice podcast: “We’re pretty much done. I mean there are a few things, a few 3D shots coming in that we are approving and things like that.”

He added: “I’d say the movie is 90%, 99.9% done. And really at this point we’re just fine tuning the final details while we get Justice League [film scheduled for 2017] ready.”

The movie will star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, although Snyder has explained that the beginning of the film is weighted more heavily towards Affleck’s Batman than Cavill’s Superman, but “evens back out” as the narrative progresses.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Holly Hunter as a US Senator, Jeremy Irons as Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred, Laurence Fishburne as newspaper editor Perry White and Diane Lane as Superman’s adoptive mother Martha Kent.

The plot synopsis for the film teases: “At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.

“Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.”
