New story details revealed for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Of the eight superhero films headed our way in 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be the most anticipated. Zack Snyder's pseudo-sequel to 2013's Man of Steel will pit Gotham's vigilante against Krypton's last son, and it promises to be a big hit for Warner Bros next year.

With the film still months away from its theatrical release, specific story details are being kept locked away in the Batcave. However, a new synopsis has surfaced on Odeon Cinemas' website that suggests Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will be manipulating the two iconic heroes.
