One of the major highlight of Comic Con 2015 was the new “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer that was revealed to fans amongst huge round of applause. The trailer gave a much clearer picture of what fans can expect when the movie hits the screens next year. The trailer is nothing short of spectacle and quite honestly it has some jaw dropping moments embedded in it. We’ll take a look at what went down in the trailer. Read on for more details.
According to Slash Film, the entire cast of the movie including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons were present on the panel for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Director Zack Snyder clarified that they have lifted some parts from Frank Miller’s comics “The Dark Knight Returns” but it is only meant as homages. Now moving towards the trailer, it further clarified who the target in the movie is and it indeed happens to be the Man of Steel. His actions are being questioned because his last encounter with his nemesis General Zod proved somewhat destructive to the city of Metropolis. The government is shown concerned and paranoid about what Superman is capable of doing. On the other hand, Batman/Bruce Wayne is shown to be a man who’s quite certain about Superman’s motives. He argues about him with Alfred who insists that Superman is not his enemy, clearly showing his optimism and sensible nature is still quite intact. The trailer also gives a feeling that Superman is finding it a tad bit difficult to cope with all of the reactions about him and his actions, but he has a handful of concerned people who continue to boost his morale.
It’s not quite certain if the Dark Knight will be able to see Superman for who he really is because one of the major highlights of the trailer shows the epic fight between the two titans. One also can’t figure out the stronger one in the fight even though physically Superman can cause some serious damage to his opponent, but when your opponent is Batman you will need more than just muscle power to match him.
Eisenberg as Lex Luthor looks promising (apart from the hair) as he does look like someone who has some psychological problems.
Gadot would certainly be one of those characters to look out for in the movie because her brief appearance as the Amazonian Princess and her alter ego are fascinating.
One thing is for sure that Batman will understand the Man of Steel’s real motives and ultimately they will unite to fight against a bigger threat. Who or what that threat is will only be known when the movie hits screens.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will release next year on March 23.
