Batman v Superman: Two Films, or One?

Batman v Superman: Two Films, or One?

In the last week there’s been a rumour circulating that the next DC Comics based film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is being split into two films. The rumour kicked off after the attached image surfaced online.


The image implies that there are two Batman v Superman films on the way, the first one titled “Enter the Knight” scheduled for a release in late 2015 with the follow-up “Dawn of Justice” targeting a 2016 release as expected.

What sounds like a plan to give Batman an introductory solo film into the cinematic DC Universe would certainly allow much more flexibility in establishing this new take on the character. By all accounts this new version will be somewhat different from recent cinematic incarnations of the Dark Knight.

Superman himself however Henry Cavill has been reported as saying the above rumour is not true, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice remains as the one film directed by Zack Snyder, for release in 2016. 

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
