Eighteen months after a destructive attack by General Zod in Metropolis from Man of Steel, Superman has become a controversial figure. Bruce Wayne, who has operated in Gotham City as the vigilante "Batman" for nearly two decades, sees Superman as a potential threat to humanity. After learning Batman's activities, Superman also views him as a threat, and seeks to stop him via the Daily Planet articles authored by him as “Clark Kent”.

On the other hand, Lex Luthor tries to convince Senator Finch to allow him to import kryptonite retrieved from the Indian Ocean, claiming to use it as a "deterrent" against Kryptonians. However, he was not the only one thinking to get the kyptonites. When Lex Luthor held a party where both Wayne and Clark invited, Wayne found out that Luthor is not only experimenting with kryptonite, but also investigating metahumans (super-powered people). Wayne then told his butler, Alfred Pennyworth that he plans to steal Lex’ kryptonite to weaponize it, should it become necessary to fight Superman.

Later then, Luthor does a bombing at a congressional hearing where Finch is questioning Superman on the validity of his actions, which have resulted in deaths of civilians. The bomb kills dozens of people, including Finch. Frustrated with failing to save people, Superman goes into self-imposed exile. Batman breaks into LexCorp and steals the kryptonite, planning to use it to battle Superman by building a powered exoskeleton, and creating a kryptonite grenade launcher and a kryptonite-tipped spear. Meanwhile, Luthor enters the Kryptonian ship and learns of its functions, as well as recorded alien worlds.

Luthor kidnaps Martha Kent, Clark's adoptive mother. He reveals that he has manipulated Superman and Batman by fueling their animosity of each other. Luthor demands Superman fight and kill Batman in exchange for Martha's life. Superman tries to reason with Batman, but Batman insisted a fight and ultimately gains the upper hand thanks to the kryptonite grenades. Before Batman can kill Superman with the spear, Lane arrives and explains the situation, convincing Batman that Superman is not a threat. Upon learning of Luthor's plan, Batman leaves to rescue Martha, while Superman confronts Luthor on the scout ship.

But, in the scout ship, Luthor had a little surprise for Superman, a genetically-engineered monster with DNA from Zod's body and his own. Surprisingly, a metahuman appeared, and she was Diana Prince, whom Bruce has met at Luthor’s party. Revealing her metahuman nature, she joins forces with them to fight the creature, but were outmatched. Realizing that it is vulnerable to kryptonite, Superman retrieves the kryptonite spear and attacks the monster. With Batman and Prince's help distracting it, Superman impales the creature. As it dies, the creature stabs and kills Superman with one of its bone protrusions.

Luthor then is arrested, and while speaking to Batman he gloats that Superman's death has made the world vulnerable to powerful alien threats. A memorial is held for Superman in Metropolis. Clark is also declared dead and Wayne, Lane, Martha, and Prince attend a private funeral for him in Smallville. Martha gives an envelope to Lane which contains an engagement ring from Clark. After the funeral, Wayne reveals to Prince that he plans to form a team of metahumans, starting with the ones from Luthor's files, to help protect the world in Superman's absence. After they leave, a faint heartbeat echoes from Clark's coffin and the dirt around it begins to levitate.
