Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is due in theaters on March 25th, but the cast and director are already gearing up for their post-release appearances. Conan O’Brien has booked the super team for a late-night talk show sit down. It’s a little strange that the episode will be airing one week after the debut of Warner Bros. much-anticipated superhero movie, but perhaps there’s more to the timing than merely reminding audiences to check the film out on successive weekends.
Let’s keep in mind that Batman v Superman is expected to kick off Warner Bros. DC Cinematic Universe in a big way, a universe that includes David Ayer’s Suicide Squad later this year and extends to a number of solo films and heroic team-ups. So perhaps the appearance of the super cast will be more in line with teasing the planned Justice League movies, something that will be easier for them to do once all the events of Batman v Superman have had a chance to play out.
As reported by Deadline, cast members Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Holly Hunter and Diane Lane, along with director Zack Snyder, will be joining Conan on March 31st for a chit-chat about all things Batman v Superman.
As for that new clip from Batman v Superman, this comes courtesy of Eisenberg’s recent appearance on Good Morning America. It features Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor giving a pep talk of sorts to Superman himself:

Here’s the official synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
