Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed y Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and stars Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Batman/ Bruce Wayne) and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the character’s first big-screen pairing. The film opens March 26 and also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Laurence Fishburne and a whole lot more.

The event which currently calls SM North EDSA’s “The Block” as it’s home features various Batman and Superman themed kiosks including sets based on the film’s version of Metropolis and Gotham City, home to the World’s Finest duo.

Also present in the venue are life-size statues of Superman…

For a fun time, media guests and bloggers were asked to wear black for Team Batman and blue for Team Superman. Obviously I always go for the winner and that happens to be Batman.

The event was hosted by fellow geek and DJ Show Suzuki. It opened with a dance number from UP and DLSU’s respective dance groups; representing the caped crusader and the big blue boyscout.

In between sets of product showcasing from partners like Silverworks and Energizer, guests also had to join a Twitter Trivia Contest using the hashtag #batmanvsupermanph as well as #batman for team Batman and #superman for Team Superman.

It was followed by photo ops with the execs present together with the cosplay team from Justice PH.

Also let me just comment on how cool these guys look and not because I’m friends with most of them and one of them cooks a mean batch of chili con carne.

Some of the sponsors for the event also prepared great activities for that day including Energizer, Silverw0rks and Blue.

Overall, the experience was radical and exciting and I admit I shed a geek tear when I saw the Batmobile up close. And later when there were two Batmen in different eras.

Filbars was also there to exhibit some of their BvS related items including the Batman v Superman Cosbaby set.

The event was a raging success and SM Supermalls definitely knows how to generate buzz for the film.
