For some, finally seeing two of DC Comics iconic superheroes squaring off in a battle royale on the big screen is a dream come true, so seeing these Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice billboards filling the city skyline must also be a thrill.

This Spring The Dark Knight and Man of Steel finally meet to hopefully kick start the DC Cinematic Universe, in a war of bat-themed gadgets versus Kryptonian might.

Following the devastation of the city of Metropolis by aliens 'Zod' and Superman (Henry Cavill) in 2013's Man of Steel, Ben Affleck's crime-fighting billionaire 'Bruce Wayne' feels something must be done to protect humanity from this superhuman threat.

Superheroes battling each other is a comic book trope, and one which fans are eager to see brought to life. Who exactly would win a fight between the human Caped Crusader and the superhuman who can fly, has incredible strength and shoots laser beams from his eyes?

Taking advantage of this animosity between the heroic duo is Jesse Eisenberg's 'Lex Luthor', Superman's arch-foe, whilst an ally comes in form of Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman', bringing the Amazonian to cinema screens for the first time and paving the way for the creation of the Justice League super team in the future.

And whereas Gotham City's crime-fighter is suited to dark and broody adventures, many criticised Superman's solo movie reboot for its angst-ridden grimness, wanton property destruction and the questionable choices of the titular caped hero.

Obviously Warner Bros. Studios and the man at the helm of this dark new universe, Zack Snyder, feels like the way to differentiate DC from Marvel is to go grim and gritty, as this movie ad campaign for the superhero slugfest suggests.
