Are you ready for the ultimate super hero show down of all time- Batman versus Superman?
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is a very hyped topic for conversation, and has ben ever since the rumours for this highly anticipated film started.
Following on from Batman and Superman, this film will see these two Superhero’s go head to head and start a war among each other. This showdown will be the latest instalment of the relationship between these two great Superhero’s, that has been around for many decades. Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane to recap the history.
The first official meeting between Batman and Superman was not until 1952, in the Superman comic no. 76. The two were on a cruise ship and found themselves sharing a cabin, due to a double booking mishap. It was here where the ever lasting relationship between the two began.
However, in the new era of Superhero’s, relationship between the two took a turn as they became suspicious of each other’s motives. Their “first” meeting with this outlook on each other took place in 1986’s Man of Steel No. 3. Here the two considered each other as being critical of one another’s methods. This film left each other pondering at the thought whether they could be friends.
Ever since, the roller coaster rides of the relationship between the Superhero’s have caught the attention of many fans. They have been seen fighting against each other, become friends again, team up together, and even had their relationship blossom into a bromance and then fall apart. With such unpredictability, there’s no way of saying what fans can expect in this next sequel. One thing fan can expect, is for an action packed film not to be missed.
The war between Super Hero’s Batman and Superman will be hitting a big screen near you on March 25th, 2016. This film stars Henry Cavil taking on the role of Clark Kent (Superman) and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman). Fellow cast members include Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Women), Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), along with Amy Adams, Laurance Fishburne, and Diana Lane.
So the one vital question remains to be answered; are Batman and Superman friends, partners, or rivals?

Following Maria Sharapova’s press conference on Monday, March 7th 2016, where she admitted to failing a drug test, Nike, Porsche, and TAG Heuer have all cut sponsorships with the athlete.
Sharapova tested positive for a drug known as Meldonium at this year’s Australian Open. The drug was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substance list in January 2016. Sharapova, who has been using the drug since 2006 for medical reasons said she was not aware it had been added to the banned substance list.
Nike and Porsche have both suspended their endorsement contracts with Sharapova until the pending investigation is complete while TAG Heuer has decided not to extend its contract with the athlete which expired last year. Such contracts are likely to cut Sharapova’s financial circumstances in a major way.
Since the announcement of the failed drug test, Sharapova has expressed her gratitude to the support of fans via social media. On Tuesday, following her admission, she expressed on Facebook how the day was anything but average and how determined she is to play tennis again. She further expressed that she hopes she has the chance to do so again.
Sharapova who was the highest paid female athlete in 2015, could face a possible four-year ban. Until the pending investigation is complete, Sharapova will be provisionally suspended by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) with effect from March 12, 2016.
The World Anti-Doping Agency chief Dick Pound described Sharapova’s conduct as reckless.
