Based on Eisenberg’s performance in The Social Network, he will bring the same energy and once again showcase the labyrinth within his character’s mind for audiences.

Jeremy Irons will be Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler Alfred, Ben Affleck shall play as Batman, and Wonder Woman will be performed by Gal Gadot. Henry Cavill from Man of Steel is returning as Superman. The Warner Bros. movie is schedualed to open in theaters May 6, 2016. Batman vs Superman still has no official title as of yet, but Warner Bros. will probably be issuing more news of the movie to hold fans interest till it’s launch.
