DC Comics and WB have managed to keep a very tight lid on the Batman V Superman thus far, with much of the updates being just images of Aquaman, Batman and Lex Luthor. But when the pre-trailer was released, and subseuently the date of the official trailer released was announced for this Monday, it would seem not even Superman or a little dutch boy could finger this dyke hole.
The trailer has been leaked, shottily shot by pirate-like camera / equipment, as you would expect. But nonetheless it is awesome. Firstly, we get a great revelatory sense of something impending on the event horizon. Superman is a god-like figure, revered in a scene where it seems soldiers boy before him. But this ‘second coming is not welcomed by the cautious or heretic; a statue of Superman’s likeness is graffitied with the phrase “False God”.
I think this plays on many of the concepts in Kingdom Come, a definitive graphic novel that shows a darker Superman, where his motives, though derived from good intent, pave a path of destruction.
It also seems with Snyder taking this approach, he has turned full circle from his version of the ‘Man’ Of Steel, the humanised Kal-El, to full-fledged alien.
But judge for yourself. Have a look at the trailer below:
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released in cinemas March 25th 2016
