    Unveiled: Title of superhero mash-up


    TIME Warner's Warner Bros studio on Wednesday unveiled the title of director Zack Snyder's 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$836 million) in ticket sales worldwide.

    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.
