This new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is great. Zack Snyder seems to have created an epic superhero movie with depth that builds on Man Of Steel’s ending. Movies In Focus wasn’t a fan of the excess in that sequence but if it plays into Dawn Of Justice then it might have been worthwhile. Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor appears to have acquired the body of Michael Shannon’s Zod, along with some kryptonite and it looks like he’s using it for his own nefarious ends.
This trailer includes footage of Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne in Metropolis during Superman’s smack-down with Zod. He witnessed the destruction first-hand and he isn’t happy with the Man Of Steel’s power. Is he manipulated by Lex Luthor?
This trailer is filled with many curious moments – we get to see a Robin costume that appears to have been vandalised by The Joker (a nod to A Death In The Family), what looks like Alfred (Jeremy Irons) visiting a ruined Wayne Manor and Batman battling soldiers wearing Superman insignias. It’s all very curious – and how does Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman fit into all this?
This is iconic stuff – and I might finally get to see the Batman from the comics I read as a kid on the big screen.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice hits screens on March 25, 2016.
