Superman and Batman franchises are getting a reboot, and Warner Bros.-owned DC Comics is producing it.
The film will be titled Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2020, Warner said in a press release.
“Batman vs. Supermen is the story of the darkest chapter of Batman history.
As the Man of Steel, Bruce Wayne must battle against an unrelenting onslaught of evil, injustice and vengeance,” the studio said.
“But it is the voice of the voiceless that will determine whether the dark will ever be allowed to consume the world again.”
Warner Bros., whose Warner Bros./DC Comics superhero franchises include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash, has also picked up a reboot of the Dark Knight Rises for March, 2019, in the same vein as Dawn of Superman.
“Batman vs Superman will tell the story that began with the seminal, award-winning Batman Begins, but is now complete,” the release said.
The announcement came just a day after Warner Bros announced that the film’s title would be revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
It will be the third film in the series, following the first two Batman films.
