They are the intrepid Arthur Curry or Aquaman, king of the sea; the young but lightning-fast Barry Allen, also known as The Flash; and the half-man half-machine known as Victor Stone or Cyborg. Together they must fight an army of parademons that have descended upon them, apparently in search of the Mother Box that transformed Victor Stone into the biomechanical creature he is. They are serving the villainous extra-terrestrial Steppenwolf, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants and take over the world.

Bruce Wayne knows that the Earth is under threat from evil forces much worse than any he's - or any other superhero - has previously seen. To defend the people of Earth, Bruce and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) decide to hunt down some of the most skilled individuals the planet has to offer, each of these people have a special talent and could play a vital part in saving the world.
As well as the new recruits (who include Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash) Batman also recruits Wonder Woman who previously fought alongside Superman whilst trying to beat Lex Luthor's incredibly strong genetically-engineered creature which also killed Superman. The fate of Superman is unclear but given the end of Batman Vs. Superman it's presumed that Superman will return to life albeit potentially temporarily weakened.
The Justice League is DC Comics’ superhero team and it’s thought that a supervillain called Steppenwolf will be their main target – though it’s sure that Lex Luthor will appear and cause as much trouble as he possibly can.

The 'Batman v Superman' star explains the central conflict between the two comic book icons.
Batman and Superman are clashing on the big screen in Dawn of Justice, where Henry Cavill’s character faces off against the debuting Ben Affleck. The pair are arguably the two most recognisable superheroes of all time, but as Cavill explains, they’ve always been on opposite sides of the spectrum.

“When it comes down to Batman, Clark, Superman doesn't agree with the way he carries out justice,” Cavill said. “He understands that Batman is trying to do this justice thing, but Clark’s view is entirely different.”

Ben Affleck makes his debut as Batman
After starring in the 2006 critical bomb Daredevil, Ben Affleck declared, "I've inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero!" But here he is back in a costume as the Dark Knight for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder and actor Henry Cavill's followup to 2013's Man of Steel.
So what drew Affleck back to the genre? "I thought the script and the themes it evokes were special," he says of Batman v Superman. "I liked the character. And I wanted to be in one of these movies that works!"

And we have the pictures to prove it.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' finally made its New York premiere yesterday (March 20th 2016) as fans gear up for the excitement of its theatrical debut on Friday. The cast and crew of the hugely anticipated DC crossover movie were all over the red carpet, along with a few special guests and the cast of pre-Batman TV series 'Gotham'.
Gal Godot, Amy Adams and Holly Hunter looked stunning in their premiere gowns as they joined male co-stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg at the event. Oscar winner Hunter plays Senator Finch in the new film, which sees a world turning against the all-powerful Superman, in favour of a mortal hero with less chance of inflicting collateral damage or, indeed, destroying the world on an impulse.
The actor insists it's about making big characters human in a potentially pre-apocolyptic world.
Taking a break from his role as Superman, Henry Cavill took a trip to the swinging 60s to star in Guy Ritchie's spy action-comedy The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It's a much more light-hearted role than 2013's Man of Steel, and offers a glimpse into how Cavill might have played James Bond (he was a finalist to play 007 before Daniel Craig landed the role).

In fact, some critics have said that U.N.C.L.E. is nothing but summer fluff. "As an actor, I don't go out looking for a message," he says. "But I believe anyone can take what they want from it. It's set in a time of potential nuclear apocalypse and asking how that would feel. The 1960s were, apparently, awesome. So if you're sitting around now being a misery-guts because you're having a bad day, well, what if it were the 1960s and the world could actually end?"
