Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Batman vs. Superman Edition Apparently in works

Samsung is planning to woo their fans with special limited edition of Batman vs. Superman Galaxy S7 Edge, besides the regular variant of the device. Samsung introduced the current-generation Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones, superhero-themed variants in the form of "Avengers" characters after the partnership deal between Marvel and Samsung, the stunning Iron Man edition was launched in May last year.

The Iron Man-themed device comes with fresh icons, colorful wallpapers and a shiny golden frame runs through the corners of the S6 Edge. This special edition was priced at approximately $2,499, when it debuted. While one “double lucky” numbered model sold for whopping $91,000 on ebay.

Now as the Galaxy S7 Edge release date nears, Samsung's Batman vs. Superman edition of the upcoming smartphone is creating a lot of buzz online. For the uninitiated, the Batman vs. Superman edition has reportedly been made at a whopping budget of over $200 million. The “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder, is one of the most anticipated movies of 2016. The star cast includes Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

Samsung could just as well produce a variant of the standard Black phone which simply has a pre-installed Batman V Superman theme setting, Regarding Superman, the colors Blue and Red seem to be readily associated with The Man of Steel and thus it could mean a Red color edition, like Iron Man, or perhaps just a return of the Black Sapphire color which apparently won’t be making the cut this year.

Korean blog Naver says the new edition will hit the stores sometime in March or April this year. It may also coincide with the release date of the standard S7 series, that is, March 11.

The movie, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” is expected to hit theaters on March 25. In any case, this variant will also be limited in quantities and may cost an arm and a leg.
