'Batman v. Superman' Trailer Coming April 20th, Tease on Thursday

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

This Thursday will kick off Star Wars Celebration, and as we revealed today, all the panels from the convention will be streamed online, and they will include all the exclusive footage that will be shown to fans over in California. Rumor has it that includes the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there will be another major tease coming that same day, one hour before the Star Wars hype kicks off. Latino Review reports the five seconds of footage from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be teased through Zack Snyder's Twitter before the official trailer is revealed in theaters on Monday, April 20th.

Here's the update on Instagram from Latino Review's Umberto Gonzalez:

So the first bit of footage will debut on Twitter at 12pm ET/9am PT, and then there will be some kind of sign-up system to see the first trailer in theaters for the first time on Monday, not unlike previous publicity stunts for films like Avatar and TRON Legacy. As of now we don't know how many theaters will be showing the trailer or where, so we'll have to wait and see how this develops. It seems a little over-the-top to debut just a trailer in theaters and not extended pieces of footage, but this will undoubtedly be a big movie, and fans will be excited either way. But either way, we'll be seeing footage from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and that's something to get pumped about. You excited?

    I am so curious if the DC Movies can keep up with the awesome Marvel Movies. I don't see much potential in Wonderwoman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and Co. Green Lantern and Man of Steel were not really good. The awesome Batman Movies of Nolan are not DC Universe canon....so there isn't a good basis. But...maybe a wonder happens 😀
  • Brian Sleider
    Isnt this due out in 16 now? A tad early for a trailer. I guess when you are so far behind Marvel you gota get the ball rolling soon.
    • Chris Groves
      There are more than a few precedents for teasers being released essentially a year before the film. December 2013 had the Interstellar teaser and it came out in November 2014. November 2014 had a Star Wars teaser and it doesn't come out until this December. Heck, they dropped that audio/helmet animation 'announcement teaser' for Age of Ultron online nearly 2 years before it came out. Spider-Man 3 debuted its teaser/trailer with Superman Returns in June of 2006, and Spidey 3 hit in May of 2007. So yeah, with the film being less than a year away, it actually makes perfect sense to release the debut teaser trailer.
  • DAVIDPD
    JL LITE? I thought we weren't even getting a costumed Wonder Woman in this one?
  • grimjob
    For me, everything about this is riding on Affleck's shoulders. He's got a lot to live up to, and he needs to deliver. This teaser better show his Batman in some context, because people need to see why hell he was cast in the first place. After Ledger, I'm trying to hold all judgement until I see for myself, but I just can't see Affleck as Batman. They need to try to change my mind.
  • TheOct8pus
    4:20? Coincidence? I think not....
  • Jon Odishaw
    a year until it comes out and im excited about a teaser to a teaser. Marvel wont have the monopoly for long.
  • dan persaud
    why didnt warner brothers buy marvel??
    • Tuomas Lassila
      Because Marvel is too beloved and succesfull and Feige is too awesome and badass?
  • dan persaud
    the warner brother made dc so great that marvel will always be the second of the two
    • Tuomas Lassila
      Not for a while it will.
  • dan persaud
    warner brothers dc universe is truly amazing disneys marvel truly suks ass
    • Guest
      How come Marvel is more successfull then, despite the headstart?
      • qweqwu
        Because there are a lot more stupid people than smart ones?
        • Tuomas Lassila
          Then I am happy to be stupid.
  • dan persaud
    dc got out like 10 movies this year while marvel got 1 out "marvel u suk" go sell urself to the WB
    • Tuomas Lassila
      Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Ant-Man doesn't count as two?
  • dan persaud
    iron man now suks, hawkeye suks, hulk suks, thor starting to suk, fantastic four will suk,so will black panther... f u marvel, even fox outclasses u
    • Tuomas Lassila
      None of the ones you mentioned sucks.
  • dan persaud
    this batman and superman movie will make the avengers movies look like crap thanks warner brothers
    • Tuomas Lassila
      Obvious troll is obvious.
    • ari smulders
      interesting theory but false of course....
    • TheOct8pus
      You're obviously a DC fanboy....but you're also extremely optimistic....I'm less optimistic about this movie. Man of Steel was pretty mediocre and now they're adding Ben Affleck to the mix, with some Wonder Woman chick and an Aquaman that looks like John Travolta in Battlefield Earth....I'm extremely skeptical.
      • SallySpider
        Avengers was garbage made for ignorant americans
        • TheOct8pus
          Couldn't you say that about most Hollywood blockbusters? Superman, Spiderman, Die-Hard, etc.
          • Dotpols
            No, apparently Batman v Superman - a movie featuring probably America's biggest comic book characters of all time - isn't really for Americans. This Sally Spider chap sure is clever to work that out.
  • dan persaud
    next youll hear marvel trying to turn there heroes a little darker like the wb did for batman marvel u suk
    • Tuomas Lassila
      They already did that with Netflix' Daredevil series 😛 Marvel will keep their movies more light hearted, which makes their films more fun and enjoyable.
  • Dotpols
    Looking forward to finally seeing a glimpse of this. Feels like it's been forever since they did that CC thing. Hopefully Snider can pull something off as good as Watchmen (I know I'll get hate for this, but I reckon that's one of the best comic book movies ever made).
    • Affan Ahmad
      No hate. The ultimate cut of the watchmen is straight up one of the best comicbook movies I have ever seen. No question
    • Nash
      No hate! Watchmen was excellent.
      • ari smulders
        Yes excellent it was!
    • Payne by name
      I preferred Watchmen to Man of Steel, so would be a lot happier if it was like the former rather than the latter.
      • Dotpols
        That's not much of a comparison. Man of Steel was terribly written and paced, and the acting for Lois Lane was awful. It's just no competition for Watchmen to be compared to a movie with lines like "I'm a Pulitzer Prize winner" and "evolution always wins" (please don't bring the science of evolution into a film that deals with eugenics and also ignores evolutuon's actual mechanics - I know that's pedantic, but that line seriously pissed me off).
        • SallySpider
          you're a moron
          • Dotpols
            Are you a Pulitzer Prize winner too are you?
          • SallySpider
            actually, I`m an arsetroll.
          • SallySpider
            yep, you got it 😀
  • jonnyb61
    anticipation for a teaser for the teaser of the trailer. thats like divorcing the chick you're about to talk to at the bar.
    • Dotpols
      Or perhaps more accurately blowing your load as soon as you spot her.
      • Nash
        Nope, that's just another day at the office.
  • Eggyweggs
    Only five seconds... I'll take it! Now hurry up already Thursday!
  • ari smulders
    still clever in the marketing those guys! It will be so hyped up when it arrives it will never accomplish the promise to be just as good as the avengers. Two years already and one big delay from a year means they putting storylines in movies that weren't In the original script. It will be one big mess of cgi, characters fighting each other and when you leave the movie you feel completely exhausted from the bombardment of cgi images who are completely unbelievable and noisy like Godzilla! But still clever marketing...
    • Rauncor
      You completely summed up why reading comments is intellectual suicide
      • ari smulders
        Thanks!
  • TheOct8pus
    Has anyone considered the fact that Batfleck could be a complete and total disaster?
    • Brian Sleider
      Yes? I Mean are you new to the internet? Its been a consistent whine since the announcement. I personally think he has the potential to be the best thing in the movie.
      • TheOct8pus
        No need to get snippy, Sleider. I've been reading the comments below and all the DC fanboys are orgasming all over the place, yet they don't seem to be considering the fact that historically, many hyped up movies turned out to be total shit.... A few titles come to mind, like The Phantom Menace, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Terminator Salvation, anything with Wolverine in the title, Indiana Jones 4 and the list goes on.... This movie could very well be on that list. A little healthy skepticism is a good idea.
        • Brian Sleider
          You asked a question that a guy who has been on this site as long as you have knows the answer to.
          • TheOct8pus
            I guess the question was aimed all the starry eyed fanboys who have already given this film 5 out of 5 stars.
          • ragethorn
            I'm no fanboy, but I think Age of Ultron has waaaaaay more hype than this.
          • TheOct8pus
            You're absolutely right.... The big difference is that we know what we're getting with "Ultron". We know the characters - they're like old friends at this point. Super vs Bat on the other hand has a lot of unknowns, and it's bound to be much darker and thus not as lighthearted as The Avengers movies. Who knows, maybe it'll be the new Citizen Kane....we'll have to wait and see
          • cg
            How about everyone just wait and see and stop ASSuming.
          • TheOct8pus
            No ASSumptions....just speCULations.
          • No, Really Just Saying
            "The big difference is that we know what we're getting with "Ultron"." That's what I'm afraid of. A final climax scene that takes place within two blocks, drones all weak and swarming the avengers, etc
          • Brian Sleider
            AoU has earned that hype with ~10 years of solid movies and stories from Marvel. DC has a list of flops and mediocre at best movies in thier past. Dark Knight doesn't count as it is not cannon in their cinematic universe.
          • No, Really Just Saying
            It comes out in less than a month. This comes out in a year. I'd HOPE it has more hype haha
        • Mr. Green
          I'm a huge DC Fan, but they haven't established their Cinematic universe instead they are just rushing into pushing out their product to compete with Marvel instead of putting in the time and work to establish each character and their background stories and the overall feel of the universe.
          • No, Really Just Saying
            This is them establishing a cinematic universe. Lol
          • SallySpider
            hahahahah....this idiot hasnt seen any of the Dark Knight movies
          • SallySpider
            And by NOLAN I mean the director of Transformers. Make no mistake.
    • ari smulders
      Yes it could be a complete disaster and he looks to pumped up!
    • phaed
      Read your comment as "fat Batfleck"
      • TheOct8pus
        Haha!! Fatleck
  • The trailer will give some decent insight...Let's just see it before judging where it falls on the "shit scale."
  • A5J4DX
    Here's hoping it'll be stupendous
  • technoreaper
    Should be some good comedy.
  • SallySpider
    DC > Marvel
    • Dotpols
      *sigh* what is it with these lame fanbois needing to make everything reductive?
      • SallySpider
        what is it with these lame idiots needing to make everything idiotic?
        • Dotpols
          lol you're leading the change gay fanboi. Hint: neither DC or Marvel are football teams, so you don't actually need to go in and "fight" for them. Moron.
          • SallySpider
            only a moron thinks the two are EQUAL. Are you telling me that someone can't evaluate both and pick one that is better? lol You're truly a PC baby
          • Dotpols
            I don't know how to break this to you, but... THEY'RE MOVIES. "Better" is almost an entirely subjective measure; in terms of judging which movie is "better" the only measure that isn't subjective is how much money they make, but probably wouldn't suit your argument. Seriously, fucktard fanbois like you need to grab yourselves a dictionary look up the differences between the meanings of the words "fact" and "opinion," and maybe try grow a brain in the process.
          • SallySpider
            You are right. I stand corrected.. I have been posting comments drunk for several weeks now.. sorry man :/
          • SallySpider
            Im sorry.. i was a bit harsh.
        • SallySpider
          Btw: I forgot: I always teabag my coffee. Sorry for all the rude replies guys.
      • SallySpider
        Because I am a trekkie.
