Actor Henry Cavill reprises his role as Superman, also known as Clark Kent and Kal-El. Actor Ben Affleck takes on the Batman suit to play Batman and Bruce Wayne. Actress Gal Gadot also makes her first appearance as Wonder Woman and her alter ego Diana Prince.

It was originally announced in June 2013 that a sequel to Man of Steel will be made with a possible 2015 release. A month later, it was also announced that the sequel will feature two of DC’s most popular superheroes, Superman and Batman.

When plans for DCEU expansion progressed, the film was introduced not as a sequel but as a separate movie that will serve as the backdoor for other movies such as Wonder Woman and Justice League. The movie was released March 25, 2016 in the United States.
