Collider is on the floor of the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, and of course, Warner Bros. folks will be there representing their wares for next year’s blockbuster showdown. And this summary of the movie doesn’t reveal much, but in terms of providing broad strokes, it does what it’s supposed to:

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.   

So, what’s the “new threat”? Lex Luthor? Some really cool thing we don’t know about yet? Either way, it’s probably a safe bet that Bruce and Clark will hug it out and use their powers together to save the day. Speculate below and see you in cinemas on March 25, 2016.
