It looks like we’ll be able to see the Batman v Superman trailer sooner than we thought. We previously told you that the first trailer for Zack Snyder’s superhero follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would be attached to Mad Max: Fury Road, but at the time we cautioned that Warner Bros. could decide to debut it sooner than May 15th.
The early debut looks to be happening, as Latino Review’s El Mayimbe is reporting that the first five seconds of the trailer will be released online this Thursday, after which you’ll be able to sign up to watch the full trailer in a theater on Monday, April 20th. We can separately confirm Mayimbe’s story—in fact, Steve was in the middle of writing up this exact same scoop when Mayimbe broke the news.
Mayimbe also says that the Batman v Superman trailer will be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron. We can’t confirm that part of the story, but it makes sense for Warner Bros. to want to get the trailer in front of as many eyes as possible.
Snyder will be unveiling the trailer preview on his Twitter account at 9am PST—an hour before the start of the big Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel at Star Wars Celebration. Sit on that for a second: the first footage from Batman v Superman will be unveiled an hour before new footage from Star Wars: Episode VII. We’ve got some big, big movies on the horizon people.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Jason Momoa and opens in theaters on March 25, 2016.
