The Irish premiere of Batman Vs Superman took place in Dublin last night, and it seems that everyone that attended had a bit of craic on the red carpet.

Rugby stars Mike McCarthy and Devin Toner certainly got into the spirit of super heroes as they both re-enacted the famous stances.

Emmy winner Baz Ashmawy also rocked up to the premiere last night (without his mammy) as well as Red Rock actors David Crowley, Chris Newman and Adam Weafer.

The blockbuster movie sees the two heroes battling it out to see who will win, however a new threat comes along and it's up to the them to save the day – together. 



They may be competitors, but it seems that these two Irish television channels have no problem 'borrowing' ideas from one another. 

Reports circulated yesterday that TV3 and RTE are at loggerheads over the use of the same music to promote the channels top two soaps, Red Rock and Fair City. 

TV3 has accused to state broadcaster of robbing the music used to promote their soap in a new Fair City Christmas special advertisement. 

The song in question, Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Lorde, has also previously been used to promote the TV3 soap and now the channel are accusing RTE of stealing their creativity, a source has told the Irish Herald. 

"You know what they say – imitation is the highest form of flattery, so I guess we should be happy."

"Red Rock has really upped the ante in Irish soap land, so it can only be a good thing for the future."

However, an insider at RTE has said that the state broadcaster believes that TV3 has over reacted. 

"It's not like their theme music was taken – the song is really popular and is very well suited to dramatic themes, so that's why it was used."

The two soaps are said to be going head to head in hour long specials that are to be broadcast on Christmas Day. 

May the best soap win!
