The Ed Zone
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?
