The first Batman v Superman trailer is attached to all copies of Mad Max: Fury Road, Warner Bros.'s first big movie of the summer, according to Collider. Mad Max: Fury Road, the long-anticipated fourth film in George Miller's Mad Max franchise is set to open in theaters beginning May 15.

Directed, produced and co-written by Miller, the post-apocalyptic action thriller stars Tom Hardy as the new Mad Max and Charlize Theron as the one-armed Imperator Furiosa. According to the official synopsis, the story takes place somewhere in the furthest reaches of a post-apocalypse world, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Haunted by his turbulent past, Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by Furiosa, an elite Imperator, who are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Mad Max: Fury Road also stars Nicholas Hoult as Nux and Nathan Jones as Rictus Erectus. For the ladies collectively known as The Five Wives, Zoë Kravitz is Toast, Riley Keough is Capable, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Splendid, Abbey Lee is The Dag, and Courtney Eaton is Fragile. Also in the cast are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior,  John Howard as The People Eater, Richard Carter as the Bullet Farmer, supermodel Megan Gale as Valkyrie, Angus Sampson as the Organic Mechanic, and Joy Smithers, Gillian Jones, Melissa Jaffer and Melita Jurisic in still undisclosed roles.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the sequel to last year's Man of Steel major blockbuster, will be released worldwide on May 6, 2016. The movie's plot is still not known but the 'Batman v Superman' in title suggests that the Dark Knight's brand of justice-at-any-cost pragmatism could stand in the way of the Man of Steel's resolve to play-by-the-rules no-matter-what idealism. And the 'Dawn of Justice' in the title also suggests that it could be an origin story for the Justice League.

Directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay by Chris Terrio based on a story co-written by Snyder with David Goyer, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will have Henry Cavill reprising his role as Clark Kent/Superman, as will Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Jesse Eisenberg will portray his arch-criminal Lex Luthor with Tao Okamoto as his assistant Mercy Graves. Ben Affleck stars as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. Israeli actress Gal Gadot who made her film debut in Fast & Furious 4 portrays Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Holly Hunter will portray a US Senator, theater actor Ray Fisher will play Victor Stone/Cyborg while Jason Momoa, has been cast as Arthur Curry/Aquaman.
