When Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice first showed us scenes from the movie in the 1st full-length trailer we all suspected that the real threat was not Batman nor Superman.
Confirmed late last night/early this morning, Doomsday is the movies main villain, seemingly along with Lex Luthor.
Batman and Superman exchange some tense/comedic comments to one another as they are dressed in normal clothing. This seems to be our first tip that they know who the other really is. There is nothing more fun than to have some tension between 2 of the most well known superheroes while they’re not even in costume.
This trailer gives us some glances at scenes that make this look like the INSANE fight scenes from Man of Steel will be replicated (just without Metropolis crumbling…or maybe not). Lex seems to be an instigator of sorts between these 2, and maybe that’s his main role, other than creating the movie’s bad guy. Maybe we don’t get to see Lex fight in some awesome mec suit…then again, would it really be surprising if we saw all of this crammed into a movie of this magnitude.
This seems to be the introduction of many elements of the Justice League, so it’s not to far off to say that the sheer reach of this movie will be far and wide in the DC universe. Meaning, we will see a lot more than we originally thought or were led to believe. The scale of this movie was never in doubt, but the real villain and real threats always seemed to teeter between Batman OR Superman. One of them was going to bed and the other was going to be good, and by the end they’ll be cool with each other and BOOM Justice League in 2017.
This trailer kind of throws all of those thoughts out. Just was said here, we knew the marketing push was coming for this movie, and I don’t think it’s stopping here. Just as we have seen with other movies coming this Winter/Spring, studios are pushing their best out right now in an all out competition.
The real question is: Which trailer has you more pumped about the movie, Captain American: Civil War or Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice?
