How does a mortal man take on a god? While that may not be the literal premise, it’s a major question being asked in the upcoming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. What’s sure to be the second major comic book movie release of the year and one of the most anticipated movies of the last five, Batman V Superman will feature two of the most iconic fictional characters of the last century fighting on screen in an epic showdown comic book fans have only ever dreamt of.
We all know there won’t be a definitive winner – the two superheroes have to team up and start the Justice League after all – but that doesn’t mean the showdown itself still won’t be a spectacular event for the ages. Even if the movie itself is atrocious, the brawl itself is sure to be the cinematic goodness of legend.
The movie comes out on March 25th and is sure to pack theaters with hundreds of thousands of massive batman and superman fans, many of whom will be featuring tattooed renditions of their favorite superheroes. Even if the movie’s poorly received, it’s going to spawn a variety of new tattoo designs based on the imagery displayed on screen.
Before we see a slew of new batman and superman tattoos based on the movie, we thought it’d be nice to show off some retro designs that are already in circulation. Who knows? You may even see one or two of these tattoos on other people in the theater whenever you decide to see what’s sure to be one of the biggest and most talked about movies of the year.
Thinking about getting a superhero tattoo of your own? We hope the tattoos featured in the following gallery will help inspire your own unique design. Luckily there are thousands of comic panels and movie frames to choose from.
