Ostensibly, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. But, as the second half of the title suggests, the Zack Snyder-helmed superhero smackdown also serves as the launchpad for an interconnected series of DC Entertainment-based films, a slate that includes at least a dozen films over the next several years. BvS not only introduces Ben Affleck’s Batman into the same world as Henry Cavill’s Superman, but we also get a big dose of Gal Gadot’s mighty Wonder Woman and quick glimpses of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Together, the quintet will dawn into the Justice League.
We’ve been focusing on — and indeed Warner Bros. has been emphasizing — the Batman v Superman showdown aspect of the upcoming DC-based superhero flick. That film, however, has a subtitle: Dawn of Justice. And today, the Justice League dawned online.
