Teaser photo of Henry Cavill as Superman in 'Dawn of Justice' now released

Warner Bros. celebrates this Fourth of July weekend with the first look of Henry Cavill as Superman for Dawn of Justice, where the Man of Steel is standing in the rain all grim and stoic -- just like Batman, with whom he will meet on the big screen for the first time.

But will they become SuperFriends ... or SuperEnemies?

It is literally a wonder -- besides a certain Amazonian warrior princess caught in the middle -- that the film is also known as Batman v. Superman, who has been the yin and yang for superheroes over the last 75 years, which led to putting together humanity's greatest protectors called the Justice League, which is being planned for a 2018 release.

Superman and Batman led the way for Marvel Comics' Captain America and Iron Man, members of 'Earth's Mightiest Heroes' known as The Avengers.

To illustrate, idealists Superman and Captain America seeks to inspire people as beacons of hope and symbols of peace -- with Kal-El from Krypton/Clark Kent/Superman being perceived as the 'classic immigrant' who fights for truth and justice on behalf of his adopted home planet Earth, while super-soldier Steve Rogers truly becoming the red, white, and blue known as Captain America.

Bruce Wayne/Batman and Tony Stark/Iron Man, on the other hand, are the one-percent superheroes who fights crime, corruption, and injustice, but with a sense of cynicism and pragmatism.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6, 2016.
