March 25 will also mark the Batman v Superman China release as Warner Bros. aims for a massive worldwide opening weekend
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is gearing up for an even bigger opening weekend than previously thought. It was just announced over Twitter that the film’s Chinese debut is now set day and date with the film’s domestic release. In short, the Batman v Superman China release is now officially set for March 25, 2016.
Plans for the day and date Batman v Superman China release come on the heels of 20th Century Fox‘s recent day and date distribution for Kung Fu Panda 3. A sizable hit, the animated sequel managed a $58.2 million opening weekend in China alone.
In the film, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed by Zack Snyder and written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, joined by Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.
