With "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" still about a year away from being released, DC fans can do little else besides reflect on the two heroes' iconic relationship. Since first meeting in a 1940's comic book crossover, Batman and Superman have been inexorably linked to one another.
Their partnership has since found its way into countless DC comics and animated film releases. Here's a look at three throwback Batman and Superman movies
1. "The Batman Superman Movie: The World's Finest" (1997): Released in 1997, this animated film sees Batman and Superman join forces to take down the Joker and Lex Luthor. The movie focuses on each heroes' strengths to highlight what makes them such a dangerous duo. When the two first meet in costume, Superman uses his x-ray vision to discover that Batman is in fact, Bruce Wayne. Undeterred, Batman places a tracking device on Superman's cape to find out where Superman has hung his cape. By the time Superman notices it is too late; Batman has found out that he is Clark Kent. All he can do is watch as Batman smirks and fades into the night.
2) "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" (2009): In this 2009 flick Batman and Superman face Lex Luthor, who has recently become President of the United States. Luthor frames Superman for murder and declares him an enemy of the state. Naturally, Batman comes to help his Justice League team mate out but then also finds himself on the run. In this film, Batman and Superman are not arch rivals and are completely dedicated to helping one another. This obviously won't be the case in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." At least not in the beginning.
3) "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" (2010):
This movie sees Batman and Superman fighting against titanic DC villain Darkseid. The two superheroes team up to fight on planet Apokolips and save Superman's cousin Kara. In the first part of the heated battle, Batman wins by threatening to blow up Darkseid's entire planet. His plan works and Superman, Batman and Kara are allowed to leave the planet. Shortly afterwards, Darkseid returns to Planet Earth where he is overpowered by Superman and Kara (Supergirl).
