The film is currently rated a 98% want-to-see on Fandango’s buzz-indicator Fanticipation meter, despite a (current) 41% rating on RottenTomatoes. Projected to earn $350m over opening weekend, "Batman v Superman" has already outsold all superhero films to become Fandango's top pre-selling superhero movie ever.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and others, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits screens on March 25.
