“Batman v Superman” trailer leaks online (and who’s surprised by that?)
Before everyone got all wet over the “Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens” trailer, the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer leaked online.
It would appear that since “Man of Steel,” the Superman (Henry Cavill) has become something of a god in the eyes of some. Others still see him as a dangerous threat.
Batman (Ben Affleck) falls into the latter camp. He’s even got a souped up battle suit a la “The Dark Knight Returns” to combat Superman, hitting him with the ominous “Do you bleed? You will.”
At least, ti’s assumed that’s Batman. Who knows? Could be a voice-over from the real villain of the movie, whom we haven’t even seen yet. Will it be Luthor? A Luthor minion? We simply don’t know, and that’s okay. The movie is titled Batman v Superman, so they play up that angle. Fine.
I’m not getting all hyped up over some slick footage. It looks good, but hundred of millions of dollars will get you that.
Until we see it all in context visa vis the movie en toto, jury is still out.
In case you’ve been under a rock, here’s the trailer. What say ye?
