With all the excitement of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ringing in our ears, it’s easy to forget that we’ve also got our first meeting of World’s Finest next year with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And a new report is suggesting that it will be a rather expensive meeting.
According to Latino-Review, the budget of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a whopping $410 million. If this is true, it will be the most expensive movie ever made, beating Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End‘s $341 million by some margin. The site also claims that the estimated budget for Justice League (presumably both parts) will be $500 million.
While it may seem like an incredible amount of money, it could be very possible given that Marvel have reportedly set aside $1 billion to make both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) and Christina Wren (Carrie Farris) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Jena Malone (Sucker Punch), Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
