We’re growing near to the double digit countdown for March 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As we grow closer to Zack Snyder’s big-screen film, placing The Dark Knight and Man of Steel on screen for the first time, we’re learning more and more about all the fun and entertaining tie-ins and merchandise that should be arriving very soon. This past week saw Amazon and Barnes & Noble list two new books for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by Titan. Fans of the film will not want to miss these.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Tech Manual” will be published by Titan Books this March. The 160 page “Tech Manual” by Adam Newell and Sharon Gosling will explore the world and technology of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and others.
Batman’s tech has been reimagined and reinvigorated in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the new blockbuster from director Zack Snyder releasing in March 2016. This book takes an exclusive, in-depth look at Batman’s arsenal, vehicles, Batsuits, and the iconic Batcave. The new Batmobile design is explored from first concept sketch, through detailed blueprints, all the way to the physical construction of the vehicle itself.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tech Manual is a definitive guide to the weaponry and props created for the movie. It closely examines the Utility Belt, the Batwing, grappling hook and batarang. Everything in the Batcave is explored down to the construction of the set and the graphics from Bruce Wayne’s mainframe. This official volume also goes deeper in to the world of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, showcasing Superman’s Kryptonian suit and Wonder Woman’s iconic weaponry.
The official companion book to the new movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tech Manual, features interviews with concept artists, the film’s weapon’s master, the mechanic for the Batmobile, and Zack Snyder himself.

We also have a fan-favorite “The Art of the Film” book releasing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 29, 2016, a few days after the film releases. The official companion book by Titan is authored by Peter Aperlo whose previous credits include screenplay to the video game 300: March to Glory, Watchmen: The Film Companion and Watchmen: The Art of the Film.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: The Art of the Film, takes fans deep into this world, accompanied by insight and interviews with cast and crew, including an afterword by director Zack Snyder.
This official companion takes an in-depth look at the artwork and design of 2016’s most anticipated movie, including the earliest concept sketches of the Batcave, all the way through the set-building process, to the final version seen on screen. It explores Metropolis and Gotham City from the streets to the skies and showcases the costumes, weaponry, vehicles, allies and enemies of our two heroes.
Packed with stunning concept art, Zack Snyder’s storyboards, blueprints, costume detail and behind-the-scenes shots from the set, this book is an invaluable insight into the world of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

As we previously reported last month, Scholastic will also be releasing tie-in novels coinciding with the release of the Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill film. It’s exciting to learn of all these upcoming titles and we hope that if you’re ever asked “What’cha reading?” that maybe one of these books will be your response.
