Empire Magazine Releases Batman V Superman Cover


Empire Magazine — a well-respected British publication for film and entertainment — has released a very special cover for its upcoming September 2015 issue which is dedicated to one of the greatest rivalries of all time: Batman versus Superman.  The issue will give readers an early look at the creative talent as well as the stars behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of the most anticipated blockbusters of 2016.

Keen readers may have noticed from the image a unique feature for this upcoming issue.  In the lower right-hand corner of the cover, there are directions to turn the page to see the alter-egos of our World’s Finest.  Avid fans can purchase a copy of this special issue next month, or they can actually order one from Empire’s site.  I’m definitely purchasing one, as this will definitely be a great piece of memorabilia.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Official Synopsis: 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.
