Marvel may cur­rently be top dogs when it comes to putting su­per­heroes on the big screen, but DC is fight­ing back. Bat­man and Su­per­man are ar­guably the most recog­nis­able comic book char­ac­ters on the planet, and the idea of the duo unit­ing on the big screen for the first time* is such a big deal that the re­veal of the hy­brid Bat/ Su­pes logo was enough to turn the crowd at San Diego Comic­Con 2013 into a frenzy for a movie they’d have to wait nearly three years to see.

That wait is very nearly over, of course, so we’ve spo­ken to di­rec­tor Zack Sny­der, and stars Ben Af­fleck and Henry Cav­ill, about squar­ing up in Bat­man V Su­per­man: Dawn Of Jus­tice ( p48).

Also in this packed su­per­hero- themed is­sue, top comics writ­ers Grant Mor­ri­son and Scott Sny­der ar­gue the re­spec­tive cases for Su­pes and Bats ( p56), we find out what’s in store for sea­son two of Dare­devil ( p58), the leg­endary Stan Lee tells us how to make a su­per­hero ( p68), Mark Mil­lar looks back at the Civil War that in­spired April’s new Cap­tain Amer­ica movie ( p72), and we pre­view the hottest su­per­hero films swoop­ing into a sky near you ( p62).

There’s so many of them you re­ally ought to sub­scribe to SFX to help you keep up with all the ac­tion. This month new sub­scribers bag them­selves a pair of Star Wars Pop! Vinyl fig­ures – why haven’t you turned to p46 al­ready?
