Now filming in Detroit 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' will be released May 6th 2016. This is our first look at Henry Cavill in the Superman costume, and yes he is in Gotham city.

Zack Snyder spoke with USA Today and dropped some tidbits about the movie.

Speaking on why Batman was added to the film:

Instead of using several movies to define Affleck's Batman, Snyder felt the character's 75-year mythology is so deep in culture now that they can just jump to an older, road-weary take on the Dark Knight. Plus, he says, "it's cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys."

Gil Gadot as Wonder Woman:

Similarly, Snyder also knows that putting the iconic superheroine Wonder Woman on a movie screen is a big deal, too. He says he hasn't filmed any scenes with Gadot as the Amazonian princess yet, but "she's working out and getting buff and ripped."

The V in Batman v Superman is there for a reason:

The director can't say exactly how the relationship between the two superheroes evolves, "but suffice it to say there is a 'v' in between their names" in the movie title, Snyder says. He explains that having the "v" instead of "vs." is a way "to keep it from being a straight 'versus' movie, even in the most subtle way."
