The Amazon Princess is joining the still untitled ‘Superman Vs. Batman’ movie from Zack Snyder and David Goyer that will pick up from the events of The Man of Steel. Henry Cavill returns as Superman and will be facing off against Batman played by Ben Affleck, the latest in a growing line of actors to take up the cowl of the caped crusader.
The plot remains a mystery, but may be influenced by Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns comic from 1986 since Snyder has been meeting with the author.
The addition of a third hero to the film could make an already busy movie all the busier, but it could also quicken the pace toward a fully fleshed out Justice League of America, thus fulfilling many a comic book fan’s dreams.
