Batman V Superman: Jim Lee Illustrates Empire’s March Edition Cover


March 2016 will be a big month for both Superman and Batman fans as it will see the release of one of the most highly anticipated films ever — Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  The movie promises action and excitement when the Man of Steel faces off with the Dark Knight.  Director Zack Snyder has already started to fan the flames by asking fans to take sides.

To show that this new movie is tied tightly with the mythos that is DC, famed comic book artist Jim Lee will create a special illustrated cover for the March 2016 subscriber’s edition of Empire Magazine.

This will surely become a collectors item in the years to come.  I’m making sure that I get my copy when it’s released, so it means that I will probably need to subscribe to Empire in order to get this special edition.
