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:
RT! HUGE #BatmanvSuperman RUMOR! Zack Snyder at 9am on Thursday, an hour before the start of Star Wars celebration will tweet the first five seconds of the new #BatmanvSupermanDawnofJustice trailer on his Twitter. You will then be able to sign up to view the full trailer in a theater on Monday April 20th. Also, the trailer will in fact be in front of prints of #AVENGERS #AGEOFULTRON! BOOM! #dc #marvel
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?
