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.

While the original 2013 magical caper was a big hit, it's style-over-substance approach didn't exactly scream out for a follow-up. But here we are, with go-to sequel man Jon M. Chu at the helm (he also directed the second Step Up and G.I. Joe movies). Most of the high-octane cast is back for more trickery, but the plot is even murkier this time.
Since their last whiz-bang stunt, the Four Horsemen have been laying low. Their leader Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) continues to work in the FBI, helping Daniel, Merrit and Jack (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco) plot their next caper, now joined by quirky illusionist Lula (Lizzy Caplan). Their latest project is to expose corruption at a New York conglomerate, but the stunt is ambushed, and the quartet mysteriously finds themselves in Macau, coerced by a tech genius (Daniel Radcliffe) into staging an elaborate heist. Meanwhile, Dylan's cover is blown, so he teams up with veteran Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman) and heads to Macau himself, chased by his FBI boss (Sanaa Latham). And it all goes down in London.
The round-the-world plot gives the movie some very cool locations, and the plot races so quickly that most audiences won't notice that it makes virtually no logical sense at all. There are flashy distractions at every turn, from sleight of hand to vanishing acts to gross-out gags to enormous double-bluffs, and all of this is thoroughly entertaining even if the script itself feels strangely incomplete. Most sequences tend to end before they get to the point, while action scenes are choppy and incoherent. The only set-piece that works is the kinetic central heist, which hinges on a rapidly flung playing card. But even though it's uneven and clunky, the film remains entertaining simply because of the magical shenanigans and snarky dialogue.

He's literally the only one standing up for justice in this scenario.
He's pretty excellent at playing distinctly unlikeable characters on screen and on stage, but Jesse Eisenberg proved he was all heart in reality when he stopped to confront some anti-gay protestors in London over the weekend as he pushed his rented bicycle across the street.
Jesse Eisenberg stands up for gay rights with five words
The 'Batman v Superman' star was enjoying the UK city, taking a break from his play on London's West End 'The Spoils' during London Gay Pride on Saturday (June 25th 2016), when he came across a small group of anti-gay protesters claiming that God hates gay people. In a nutshell. Understandably, Eisenberg seemed pretty shocked to be faced with such outdated opinions and stared with a dumbfounded smirk before confronting one of the protestors with a well-deserved expletive.
The show hit the West End this week.
Jesse Eisenberg has built a reputation for playing arrogant, manipulative and annoyingly intellectual geek-like characters on the big screen ('The Social Network' and 'Batman v Superman', for example), and he's followed that through with his new play 'The Spoils'; a production which he wrote and stars in as another complete jerk. It hit Trafalgar Studios in London's West End this week to very positive critical reception.
Jesse Eisenberg has impressed theatre critics
The play, which has been directed by Scott Elliott, follows a group of friends in New York, led by Eisenberg's character Ben; an over-priveleged grad-school drop-out who does everything in his power to get what and who he wants with no regard for anyone else's feelings, be they his roommates or otherwise. It's unusual for a story to have such a loathsome 'protagonist' (for want of a better word), but for the most part critics have reacted remarkably well.

'Top Gear', with new presenters Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc, returns on May 29th to BBC2.
With only ten days to go until the Clarkson-free ‘Top Gear’ returns to the BBC, the programme has been forced to announce its two guest stars for its first episode after a false report by The Sun claimed that Brad Pitt had pulled out of filming.
Brad Pitt was never actually approached to be in the first 'Top Gear' episode
He's the villain of the piece in 'Batman v Superman'.
Playing a supervillain has got to be just as much fun as playing a superhero. At least, Jesse Eisenberg found himself immensely enjoying his role as Lex Luthor in the DC comics blockbuster 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' this year, but what makes being a bad guy so fun?
Jesse Eisenberg plays Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman
Eisenberg thinks it's all down to being able to show off traits that wouldn't normally be acceptable in social circumstances; and, indeed, being able to carry out deeds that one certainly wouldn't be permitted to do in real life. Plus, nothing can be more empowering than being given the chance to play both Superman and Batman's arch-nemesis.

Every superhero has a dark side and being 100% human, Batman is in doubt over how genuine Superman actually is. After all, Superman is from a different planet and has incredibly natural powers; powers that could easily destroy our world.
As Lex Luther manipulates Batman and Superman into a deeper and deeper war, the duo find that they are pitted against a force that's much more of a present threat than either of the heroes. They are joined by a number of other heroes (including Wonder Woman and The Flash) on a quest to save earth from immediate danger.
Warner Bros. Pictures releases Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in cinemas 25 March 2016.
After becoming the most famous magicians in the world with their last tricks and exposing the wrongdoings of Arthur Tressler, it was obvious that as many people as they helped, they'd always upset a powerful few. One of those is Arthur's son, Walter Tressler.
Walter is on a mission to cause The Four Horsemen as much damage as possible. In order to stop Walter, the four magicians must pull off a stunt far bigger than their first.
With Isla Fisher pregant and unable to commit to the film Lizzy Caplan (Masters Of Sex) has been brought in to play the role of Lula. Other than Isla, all the lead cast from the first film will appear in the new film and Daniel Radcliffe will play the role of Arthurs son, a tech magnate.
'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice' makes an adversary of everyone.
Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.
Henry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent
The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.
Steve Carell is reportedly taking over the role Bruce Willis vacated in Woody Allen’s upcoming film.
