Batman v Superman fans can toast their heroes at Clarke Quay

There are only two weeks to go before Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice opens in cinemas worldwide.

Naturally, anticipation is high. After all, fans have been waiting for years for a movie of this magnitude, when two of DC Comics' biggest stars head to the big screen together for the first time.

The two superheroes have opposing views when it comes to protecting humanity and they clash.

The movie, which stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne aka the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman again, opens on March 24.

As we count down to director Zack Snyder's epic movie, here are some places at Clarke Quay where you can indulge in your Batman and Superman fantasies.

All promotions end on March 20.

YUM: (From left) The B Burger and the S Burger from The Butchers Club Burgers


Block A #01-01B

Can't decide which DC Comic icon to support? How about going with the colour that stands out?

The guys at The Butchers Club have created two whimsical burgers - B Burger and S Burger ($20 each) - to satisfy fans from both camps.

Featuring the burger joint's signature dry-aged Black Angus beef from Australia, both burgers are variations of The Burger, a popular item on the menu.

The B Burger is made up of a 160g dry-aged beef patty, maple-glazed bacon, cheese, tomato and pickles, with truffle mayo sauce, sandwiched between charcoal burger buns.

The S Burger is a more tangy version, with chilli mayo sauce, and it has red and blue buns instead of black.

The Butchers Club Burger says the colouring for the S Burger buns is "all natural".

"We have always prided ourselves with our good quality ingredients and burgers," said Ms Caitlin Murphy, general manager of The Butchers Club Burger.
