LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Time Warner Inc's Warner Bros. studio on Wednesday unveiled the title of director Zack Snyder's anticipated superhero sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," in which the two legendary DC Comics heroes will face off.

The film, scheduled for release on May 6, 2016, is the follow-up to last year's "Man of Steel," which grossed $668 million in worldwide ticket sales.

"Dawn of Justice" will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman opposite "Argo" actor and director Ben Affleck as Batman, a choice that split many fans of the franchise.

The film will also star Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
