Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, shared an apocalyptic photo via social media -- but don't worry, it's all in good fun. The image features Batman and… R2-D2 from the Star Wars universe. (Yes, the robot. And both figures are reportedly simple action figures.) Snyder's movie will open in theaters in May 2016.
