A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Robin in this film?
Is Batman v Superman in continuity with Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy?
No, Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy is not connected to the new DC Cinematic Universe, and Batman has been completely re-imagined. Ben Affleck's Batman will differ from Christian Bale's Batman and his version wouldn't compete with the The Dark Knight trilogy that came before it. Zack Snyder has confirmed this will be a tired, weary and seasoned Batman.
