The premiere of Batman v Superman was closed to press interviews tonight following the terrorist attacks in Brussels.

The new film is Ben’s first outing as Gotham’s masked vigilante, whose vendetta against Metropolis’s Man of Steel leads to the ultimate superhero showdown, just as an even greater threat emerges that throws mankind into peril.

Joining forces with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the two put their differences aside to stop Lex Luthor and his deadly creation Doomsday before Metropolis is destroyed.

Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Lex, and Gal joined the pair for the premiere.
