Keeping up with the latest movie news can be difficult, and that's certainly true in the case of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This superhero blockbuster was first announced at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con; since then, new details are being revealed almost every day, and it's hard for those of us with a life outside of DC Comics to keep up.

Fortunately, though, the Gadget Inspector team have done a bit of research (y'know, on Wikipedia) and compiled the following list. Here is everything we know about Batman v Superman to date - scroll to the bottom for a smashing superhero deal!

Actors: Quite a large chunk of the cast has already been revealed. Henry Cavill will be playing Superman, just as he did in Man of Steel. As you've probably heard - this was quite a controversial casting decision - Ben Affleck will be playing Batman. Other confirmed cast members include Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White).

Release Date: The film is currently slated for release on Friday, March 25, 2016, although that's a) subject to change, and b) only in the USA. Us chumps in the UK will have to wait until Tuesday, April 29, 2016.

Plot: Okay, this is where details start to get a little bit sketchy. Obviously, Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne will face off - Batman v Superman would be a pretty disappointing movie if it didn't even deliver on the promise of its title.

Having said that, the presence of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor suggests that this won't simply be a hero vs. hero film. Perhaps Lex is somehow responsible for turning these two crimefighters against each other? Or, since Wonder Woman is also set to appear, perhaps she is somehow at the centre of everything?

Of course, it's worth pointing out that Jeremy Irons has never played a non-villainous character before, and so there's a pretty strong chance that Alfred the Butler will turn out to be the big bad of the piece. Now that's a film we'd go and see.

Will it be as good as Marvel's shared universe stuff? Perhaps. If anybody at Warner is reading this, please get on the phone to Zack Snyder ASAP and tell him to consider our 'Alfred is the bad guy' plot. That would definitely give this flick the edge over The Avengers.

Now then, we promised you a smashing superhero deal, and here it is:
