Is 'Justice League: War' the plot of 'Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice'?

Those who have seen the Justice League: War movie will have to hold their breath. It might be the plot that has inspired Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the upcoming movie. 

This may or may not be a spoiler. It's a guess. And here's the reason why.

Wolverine & The X-Men
Those who watched Wolverine And The X-Men, would have realized that the 'X-Men: Day Of Future Past' was based on that plot. And I am sure comic book fan's too might have their references for the same. I saw the animated series first and hence was a bit disappointed to see the cinematic version. Not that it was a bad movie. It just didn't do justice to the original plot that well.

Coming back to the Justice League movie. The 'War' plot seems to be the inspiration for 'Superman vs Batman' because of one primary reason. The superhero's meet up for the first time. Brought together by a common enemy. An enemy they know they cannot fight alone.

It's also interesting how they have kept this as a Batman vs Superman movie when there are other superhero's also part of it. I guess DC wanted their super star hero's to be the highlight and relate-able to the general population.Who else but Superman and Batman to take the place since they have been the most successful franchise for DC universe in cinema. Personally, Flash and Spiderman (Animated) are my favorites as they are more fun superhero's. Batman and Superman come with a lot of baggage to be fun. They are the serious kind.

Check out 'Wolverine & The X-Men' animated series episodes on YouTube.
