Last nigh the internet freaked out AGAIN over a movie trailer. This time it was the second trailer for the highly anticipated Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Watch here.
So first off I still hate Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, however I am holding out full judgement until I see the full release. The trailer opens with Clark Kent meeting Bruce Wayne for the first time, however we learn that both Batman and Superman are established in their respective cities. Superman is welcomed by the people of Metropolis while Batman is still viewed as a vigilante. Each one take shots at the others alter ego was wonderful but for me, it all comes together when Bruce Wayne says “Maybe it is the Gotham in me, we have a bad history of freaks dressed as clowns”. A few things of note here: 1) Batman is still considered a feared vigilante yet it was appear as Gotham has already had its run in with Joker. 2) They cut to the Jason Todd Robin customer during this line, so should Gotham have accepted Batman at this point?
The last 30 seconds of this clip was worth showing again. We finally see what brings The Trinity together. Lex Luthor creates Doomsday!!!!! Wonder Women protects Bats and Sups and there is some comedy between between the Man of Steel and the Dark knight. Then it appears as though she is leading into battle with Doomsday.
DC Comics and Warner Bros. has a very large hill to climb if they ever want to catch up to Marvel. However I think the timing is right for them to do it. We are about to get our third Captain America and third Avengers (in two parts). DC has a fresh new characters making big screen debuts in the coming years with Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, a new Green Lantern, The Flash and Cyborg, as well as 2 Justice League movies. While I do not think, base merely on track record, that DC will ever catch up with Marvel, I do believe their timing is right to make an attempt with some new characters and stories
Jury is still out on Ben Affleck, and his Batman voice which we finally here and still better than Christian Bales. However, this trailer has me pumped and excited for March.
What are your thoughts on the trailer? Are you excited for the movie? Are you rooting for Batman or Superman? Are you excited for Wonder Women to make her big screen debut? Do you think DC movies wll ever catch up to Marvel? Tell us below
