Filming for the latest Batman film took place in Liverpool this week.
But not all superheroes wear capes, sometimes they speak Italian or have strangely white teeth.
And when Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp lead their teams into battle at Goodison Park, fans will have some blockbuster action to look forward to.
It will be ten years to the day since Everton last defeated Liverpool. That’s around nine years, 11 months, 30 days too long for long-suffering Everton fans!
But this time around they have a fantastic chance of toppling their city rivals, and we’ve got some top Odds Picks, including an 18/1 selection that’s tastier than a pan of Scouse.

Our Top Pick – Over 3.5 Goals – 11/8 at BetVictor
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won every league match this season, and top the Premier League table.
They have scored an average of three goals a game, and in Dominic Calvert Lewin they have European football’s most in-form striker.
He has netted nine times already in all competitions, including two hat-tricks, and will be licking his lips at a date with a Liverpool defence that shipped seven last time out against Aston Villa.
Meanwhile James Rodriguez is proving to be the best thing to come out of Columbia since….you get the idea!
Everton will surely expect a reaction from Jurgen Klopp’s men, who had won all three games up until that point.
And in Sadio Mane they have someone who loves scoring against Everton, having netted in three of the last four seasons.
However, you’re more likely to find a clean sheet in a student’s bedroom than on an Everton or Liverpool scoresheet, as they have kept just one each in their four league games.
So we’re going for goals at Goodison.
Our Extra Pick – Draw and Both Teams to Score – 15/4 at bet365
With both sides evenly matched, and likely to go toe to toe like a couple of drunks in The Cavern on a Saturday night, there’s every chance they could cancel each other out.
Neither side has drawn a game yet, so the law of averages says they’re due one.
And with goals predicted, an entertaining score draw could be in the offing.
Our Long Shot – Michael Keane to Score – 18/1 at bet365
Everton have won the fourth-most corners in the Premier League this season.
And Michael Keane in particular, could profit from the dead-ball qualities of James Rodriguez, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Lucas Digne.
The England man has already scored twice this campaign, and he is no stranger to a goal against Liverpool, netting against them at Anfield last season.
