While you impatiently await the theatrical arrival of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s worth noting that some key pieces of tie-in merchandise will hit store shelves months in advance of the film’s release. One of the most interesting is Batman v Superman, a trade paperback that will collect some of the best showdowns between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel throughout comics history.
While it’s currently unknown what stories will be collected into this tome, it may be safe to assume from what we can discern from the cover art to the left (which may not be final) that “The Dark Knight Falls,” the final chapter in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, will be included. What we do know is that it’s 160 pages and will arrive in bookstores November 10, 2015.
Here’s the description:
