If you are a fan of Batman and have a HBO subscription, then you are in luck. The premium channel is slated to bring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to users next month. So, it’s time you start planning your viewing party and order that Dark Knight onesies you have been eyeing.
HBO confirmed they would be adding the film to its November line-up through their website. The online schedule says Batman v Superman will air at 7:00 p.m CT on Saturday, November 26th. The film will be available On-Demand from that date forward.
Sadly, the network won’t be playing the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman. The extended cut has been widely praised by fans who were left unimpressed by the film’s theatrical cut. The edition that HBO will air is the standard 152 minutes cut.
If you want to check out the network’s synopsis of the film, then you can read it below:
“It's the Dark Knight against the Man of Steel in a stunning battle between the world's greatest superheroes! Ben Affleck is Batman and Henry Cavill is Superman in this action smash that finds the duo at odds and prepared to take each other down...while the nefarious Lex Luthor hangs on the sidelines awaiting the outcome. "The stuff that DC Comics dreams are made of" (Rolling Stone). Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot co-star. Directed by Zack Snyder; written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, Batman created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.”
With Batman v Superman slated to air on HBO, the film will be able to reach an audience of superhero fans who were hesitant to see the movie in theaters. The blockbuster was weighed down by negative reviews shortly after its premiere as critics panned the film. While public opinion regarding Batman v Superman has softened since its debut, many fans have been on-the-fence about watching the film.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante 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, the film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (“American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (“Unfaithful,” “Man of Steel”) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Man of Steel”) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the “Fast and Furious” films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and its Ultimate Edition are now available on Digital HD and Blu-ray.
