There’s a right way to be single, a wrong way to be single, and then… there’s Alice. And Robin. Lucy. Meg. Tom. David. New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle. And somewhere between the teasings texts and one-night stands, what these unmarrieds all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love. Sleeping around in the city that never sleeps was never so much fun.

Though the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel, as evidenced by the teaser trailer, however, one of the film’s stars Henry Cavill says that the film isn’t a “Superman sequel.”
Cavill told MTV:
“I wouldn’t call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman vs Superman so it’s a separate entity altogether. It’s introducing the Batman character and expanding upon the universe which was kicked off by MAN OF STEEL… Everything could change in the editing room, but as it stands it’s definitely an introduction to the character and ultimately an introduction to JUSTICE LEAGUE.”
Justice League Part 1, which will also be directed by Zack Snyder, hits theaters November 17, 2018. In addition to other DC releases on their calendar are Suicide Squad and a solo Wonder Woman film.
