Director Zack Snyder announced on Twitter that his upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hits IMAX on Monday for a special teaser trailer event.
Since this is the internet, it’s already leaked online. Check it out below.
The first half of the trailer focuses on the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and the public opinion on him. Some people say he’s just trying to do the right thing but many are critical of a god-like figure. One choice quote is the famous “Power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
This culminates with a shot of a Superman statue that someone spray-painted “false god” onto in red.
We then turn our sights to the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) as he looks on forlornly while a voiceover (that sounds a lot like Jeremy Irons as Alfred) says: “That is how it starts. A fever. The rage. A feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel.”
The trailer ends with Batman, wearing what seems to be a metal suit with glowing eyes, saying to Superman: “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”
Overall, it’s a dark and dramatic trailer, setting up an epic clash between our heroes.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Laurence Fishburne, is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.
