Batman v Superman edition of the Galaxy S7 edge might be in the works

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be one of the biggest movie events of the year, as two of the world’s most popular superheroes will battle it out on the big screen (before ultimately joining hands) and kickstart DC Comics’ shared film universe. Last year, Samsung chose Iron Man (arguably Marvel’s best-selling superhero) for a special edition of the Galaxy S6 edge, and it looks like the Korean giant will be joining the other side with a Batman v Superman edition of the Galaxy S7 edge in 2016.

According to Korean publication Naver, the launch of this special edition will be sometime in March or April, which means it may or may not coincide with the release of the movie on March 24. There’s no mention of whether this edition will be as limited as the Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man device (only 1,000 units of which were made), though that is likely going to be the case. We can expect the Batman v Superman edition to have wallpapers, ringtones and other media based on the movie – the design itself should be heavily influenced by the source material and make for a very good-looking smartphone.

There will be other special variants of the S7 edge (and the S7) as well later in the year, including one based on the 2016 Winter Olympics and another in partnership with a popular South Korean singer. We should be getting more information on these variants in the future, though Samsung is unlikely to make a mention of them at the Unpacked event.
