Warner Bros. has released the final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, and the movie finally has my interest, at least on a set piece level. Not that I really expected director Zack Snyder to disappoint in the action department (let’s try to forget Sucker Punch exists), but it’s interesting to see his spin on Batman specifically, and show the character as a seasoned veteran who easily takes out a room full of bad guys (although you expect a combo meter to pop up at any second).
What’s interesting about this trailer is how they’re selling everything from Wayne’s perspective. I know Batman is a more popular character, but the whole marketing campaign seems more about how Superman is a threat rather than Superman deserving equal time for why he’s a good guy and Batman is a deranged vigilante. I’m very curious to see what POV the film takes, and if we’ll be rooting for both sides equally or if Snyder reveals he has a pro-Batman slant.
Check out the latest trailer below. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25th, and stars Ben Affleck as the Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, as well as Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, Scoot McNairy, Jason Momoa, and Diane Lane.
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.
