Comic Book Movie just spotted that Odeon Cinemas, one of the biggest movie theater chains in the UK, has posted a new synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It differs from the official synopsis that Warner Bros. released earlier this year, and reveals some interesting new details about Lex Luthor. Here it is:
At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.
Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.
Choose your side: the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight? Learn the answer to the age-old question – who would win? – in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’.
It’s not clear as to whether this is an official synopsis or just some clever marketing that the theater put together to drive ticket sales. It’s hard to believe a movie theater who works closely with movie studios would make stuff up, but I’ll do some digging and report back if I have more to add.
