Batman v Superman Trailer

"Devils don't come from hell beneath us. No, they come from the sky." It's time! Feast your eyes on the very first footage from Zack Snyder's highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where we will finally see Batman fight Superman. After the teaser trailer leaked online early via bootlegs (which we don't condone watching!), Zack Snyder tweeted that the first full trailer is now here and fans will get a special IMAX trailer at the preview events on Monday. Henry Cavill returns as Superman, Ben Affleck plays Batman, and we don't see much elese, but it is a rather dark and epic first tease at what is to come. This is just a teaser but I like what we're seeing, even though it's a much different tone than Marvel. Enjoy!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, via WB/DC:

Zack Snyder's sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the DC Comics Universe will bring back Henry Cavill as Superman and introduce Ben Affleck as Batman. Amy Adams, Laurence Fisburne and Diane Lane are all reprising their roles from Man of Steel, while more new additions include Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also appear as Aquaman and there have been rumblings of Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next spring, March 25th, 2016.

    Oh my worse fears become true. It looks like cinematic from a bad videogame. I Hate you, Zack Snyder.

            you're a moron...off yourself
        • NarcolepticNinja
          Well, ok, you come back here after the movie is released and has since stopped screening in cinemas and post that you didn't watch it because you're stubborn or obtuse or something... You know, just to make a point and whatnot.
          • toonfed
            Or to make you feel you win this comment and you're so clever? don't worry if is so important to you, then you are right. i really learned my lesson. I will be here still hating Zack Snyder.
    • Dotpols
      Actually parts of it look almost exactly like Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. That is by no means a bad thing.
      • toonfed
        That, doesn't mean at all that is good. Snyder technically copy every single panel of Watchmen and he deliver us a bad movie with terrible acting. This precisely is what i fear, and don't expect too much of this movie, cause its based of Frank MIller's and Zack cannot count a good story.
        • Dotpols
          I personally disagree with that. I thought Watchmen was a brilliant film, and one of the best comic book movies ever made full stop. People seemed either to love or hate it, but I was definitely in the former category and thought he pulled it off brilliantly. I also thought the way they changed the ending was very clever and well thought out and even preferred that to the way they did it in the comic. I didn't much like his efforts on MoS, but I rate Watchmen above The Dark Knight (although only just ... because DK loses it in the third act). Each to their own I suppose, but if he pulls off an effort similar to Watchmen I'll be pretty happy.
          • toonfed
            Well, that's good. It's matter of taste and personal likes and interests. I agree with the ending in Watchmen, because a giant monster it will break the tone of seriousness. it was a logical decision. That doesn't make the whole movie for me. but it's just me. I truly don't like the work of Zack Snyder. i think it's better we have our own tastes. Cheers, man.
        • Brian Sleider
          I loved watchmen, some of the acting was not great but I loved the movie.
        • son_et_lumiere
          i'm not a Snyder hater, but i'm fairly obsessed with Watchmen, and i have to agree with your assessment of the film - it was an excellent *transcription* of the panels, but something was lacking, it had no *soul*. plus slow-mo loses something when you use it all the time. here's hoping this brings more than his one-size-fits-all approach.
    • SallySpider
      Then you DEFINITELY need to skip the Avengers
      • toonfed
        When Zack Snyder become the director of Avengers, i Will definitely Skip it.
        • SallySpider
          So you're NOT interested in a good director?? Joss Whedon is mediocre at best
          • toonfed
            Oh no, Joss Whedon was insulted. I don't care. I still hate Zack Snyder, for you fanboys things work like this: "if you're not with me you're against me". yawn.
          • SallySpider
            we're just tired of idiots like you funding garbage...sorry for trying to raise the bar
          • toonfed
            I just based my opinion of previous experiences with Zack Snyder. it's not about about bars, it's about common sense. Sorry if my personal opinion, hurts some sensitive souls. There is nothing i can do with that but i'm thankful you guys consider my opinions so powerful that you can get it out of your minds. If someone gets funding for Garbage is Zack Snyder. and i agree, we're all tired of that.
          • Dotpols
            I reckon Snyder can direct, but you're right that it's entirely a matter of opinion, and ultimately you'll never be able to reason with irrational fanboi trolls like SallySpider - they're the internet's version of religious extremists who want to kill people over cartoons insulting their 'prophet'. Only they sit behind their keyboards attacking anyone who has attacked the object of their pathetic and misguided idolatry. One thing's for sure, neither Joss Whedon nor Zack Snyder could give a flying fuck about the overly emotionally dependent fanbois on either side love or hate them. They're both laughing all the way to the bank.
          • toonfed
            You're right. (well maybe you went a little too far with religious extremist). but i totally get your point, discussion on internet should be as entertaining as the topic itself. wich i honestly do, imagine if get really pissed off with every comment they do to me. i will be already dead of a stroke or something. About, Zack Snyder and Whedon, you're right again, like it or not, it works for the studios who puts the money. Unless the executives of Warner are cancelling "Batman v Superman" just because i hate Zack. Cheers, Dotpols.

    Someone please dub in some original Robocop lines please: (as in Peter Weller Robocop) "Dead or Alive!, You're coming with me!", etc
  • NarcolepticNinja
    It looks like the fight scene between Bat and Supes will be pulled pretty much straight outta Dark Knight Returns. Love the voice while he's in the battle armour, and Affleck looks pretty decent as Wayne in that one shot. Also digging the shot where Bat rises up in the normal suit!
    • Jason Savinon
      Affleck looks awesome in the batsuit. Let the marvel haters hate. DC is bringing it big time with this movie. I hope the fight scene is like the Dark Knight Returns bc we'll be in for superman ass kicking.
      • I agree with everything you guys said. I think the suit is adding muscle to Ben, but as someone who isn't a fan of his casting, he DOES look pretty bad ass. He does look like he's right out the comics.
      • BNN667
        For me the only downside in MoS was the final fight between Supes and Zod, but because Bats can't fight at super sonic speed we're probably gonna get a better choreographed squabble followed by a more detailed and brutal hand to hand fight, as long as Bats gets that damn kryptonite! Can't wait!
        • Dotpols
          MoS wasn't bad, but for mine its biggest weakness was really just the dialogue and the climax. I didn't really have an issue with the DBZ style fight, as you kinda expect that with characters that are pretty well invincible, but the writing ruined it for me... I also thought Amy Adams' acting was pretty bloody awful, but the dialogue in general often felt clunky and fake in a way that you don't feel say in the Nolan Batman films or most MCU films. I could have forgiven at least some of that, but the way Superman kills Zodd (not the fact of it) was also just really poor writing. They're in a total stalemate and then Supes somehow just gets him in a headlock and it's curtains. Just made it feet like they couldn't think of a way to end it, and that was the best they could come up with.
          • BNN667
            Yeah in that final scene you could definitely tell they were writing themselves out of a hole, and the dialogue did lack a small sense of humanity or spirit. Though you could say the reason for that was because the majority of the film had almost no stakes or tension when there wasn't any action going on. With this film there should be Plenty of opportunity for more interesting scenes even when there isn't any action, this film is chalk full of characters and situations that implore dramatic interesting exchanges!
          • Dotpols
            I think you're definitely right with this film offering better stakes for more interesting character interactions, but I still think even a tiny bit of creative thinking could have provided them with a way to even things up in MoS. Like, they could have had the effects of the "world builder" create some way Krytonian like atmosphere in the areas immediately where it had levelled the city, making the two of them more 'mortal' in those spaces. That way, when they headed into them, they could have bled an done genuine damage to each-other whilst also slowing down. That would have created an opportunity to kill Zodd and not have it be totally stupid.
          • BNN667
            I swear I thought that's what was going to happen during my first viewing! Not that it would be the way he defeated Zod but maybe they'd be flying/fighting and accidentally fly through the area where the "world builder" had been and suddenly hit the ground hard, then fist fight for a minute before Zod realizes he just needs to run outside the range of the small Kryptonian atmosphere the machine created so he can keep killing people, or something like that. Just something where they both lose their powers for a moment would have been fun, but opportunity lost!
      • NarcolepticNinja
        Hey, I LOVE Marvel! I've tix booked already for Avengers: AoU for tomorrow night! Doesn't mean I don't love DC too, though! Comics are comics, and I don't care what people say otherwise. I'm looking forward to this as much as any other comic book movie coming out in the next five years.
  • BNN667
    For me personally it's still too early to tell, but I have to say that's the most badass batman I've seen on film! That costume, combined with how much Affleck must have hit the gym for this, makes Batman look like he hopped right off the page.
  • Dotpols
    Snider has been very hit and miss - producing both masterpieces and trash with not much in between - but going in this trailer I've been given some hope that this film could fall into the former rather than the latter. Epid set-up... just hope they can pull it off.
  • Nielsen700
    Trailers for big movies are usually cut amazingly now adays. This film might be boring as shit. Won't know before you see it... and I will.
    • SallySpider
      facepalm
      • Nielsen700
        You're an inspiration.
        • SallySpider
          your mom said the same thing
  • Miguel Garay Boszeta
    Looks amazing. Finally, Batfleck have my approval.
  • Dotpols
    Gotta say, one thing I do like is Jeremy Irons' voice in the background. He's a very interesting choice for Alfred and his gravelly tones add a certain gravitas to the trailer.
  • shiboleth
    I am sucker for Superman films, so, there's some unavoidable watching this on the way ...
  • Joshua Addisson Roach
    Pretty sure that's "Devils don't come from hell beneath us..." miracles doesn't really make sense in the context of the discussion of fear about superman
    • Dotpols
      I imagine Luthor is referring to the damage caused by Zod and the other Kryptonians - 'the demons from above' line would surely resonate in reference to them.
  • Brian Sleider
    Did Batman blow the shit out of 4 people in that trailer?
  • davidshaw
    It very clearly does NOT say "miracles", I mean Jesus Fucking Christ, miracles coming from hell? Do you people have brains?
  • Quite a dark overtone, but I like it. B-fleck looks pissy...I like that too.
  • ragethorn
    I'd like to trade Age of Ultron to watch this first. Sorry but you can keep your soft ass shit for Saturday morning cartoons.
    • JBroti
      Another butthurt DC fan ***yawn***
      • SallySpider
        DC fans have the Dark Knight trilogy which are the best comic book movies ever....Marvel fans have an emo Toby Mcguire. hahahah
      • ragethorn
        Awwwwwwwwww. Don't be mad bruh. I'm actually a big Marvel fan boy. Their movies are a little too soft for me. Except for Raimi's Spiderman 2. GREAAAAAAAAAAT MOVIE.
    • T. Hakeem
      I shall! And still look forward to this different take on the genre... shock, horror! πŸ˜‰
  • IamSlave
    Teaser looks awesome but the real question is how the hell did you hear "miracles"?
  • Tuomas Lassila
    So Batman still has a "throat deceise"-voice?
    • digifruitella
      what's "throat deceise"-voice?
      • Tuomas Lassila
        Like Nolan's Batman had, just a lot different.
    • SallySpider
      It's hard to tell the difference sometimes between a moron and a brilliant troll job
    • ProjectionistHP
      Hi's in his battlearmor, which he uses against Superman. Hopefully he doesn't sound like that in normal batsuit..
  • ari smulders
    it wasn't that bad,affleck convinced me at first glance and hey:it's a zack snyder movie so if you don't like testosterone and strong images it will suck for you! I liked 300 and his take on superman and i onley hope it's not to much a ''mancave'' movie,but at gentle pace and a exploding climax! This trailer got me still interrested,better than the terminator ''give it all away"trailer...
    • Nash
      Indeed, the convincing images of Affleck did the job. Now let's see how BvS holds up when a real full trailer will arrive with Eisenberg in it.
      • ari smulders
        true...
  • Steven
    I like the tone....even darker than MoS, plus it stands out that DC are doing there own thing. Though still not sure on, though don't know why. Happy to give it a go though
    • son_et_lumiere
      it is a lot *darker*, isn't it? i hope someone turns the lights up at some point in the film.
  • qweqwu
    RIP Marvel
    • mooreworthy
      Based on a trailer vs. the MCU? Too soon but would love to see DC succeed as Marvel has, even if it a different approach.
    • TheOct8pus
      I don't think anything can kill Marvel at this point. They've been extremely successful so far in creating their universe, and setting up the next movie over and over again, leaving the audience wanting more. It's too early to say RIP Marvel if you're looking at it from a Marvel vs. DC standpoint. DC only have ONE movie out from a shared universe (Man of Steel). This upcoming movie is just the 2nd movie of the DC universe, so we don't know how well received it will be. Another major factor (and a detractor for DC fans) in Marvel's success, is that Marvel movies for the most part are family friendly. Many parents take their small children to see Marvel movies, which means bigger box office, and a built in future audience. DC movies, with their "grit" and "darkness" tend to scare off the more prudish parents from taking their kids, even though at the end of the day, it's still a bunch of dudes in tights flying around. Let's see how this does before we bury anybody, shall we?
      • qweqwu
        Didn't read all your post, seemed like a waste of time. RIP Marvel from my point of view and other mature people pov, the kiddies can keep marvel
        • TheOct8pus
          I love how people think that DC movies (Green Lantern, Superman, Supergirl, Green Hornet, Catwoman, The Flash, Batman and Robin) are so DARK and ADULT, whereas Marvel movies are for kids. It's true that the MCU is more family friendly, but do you really think a movie about a dude with superpowers flying around in tights is for adults only? You think small children DON'T know who Batman and Superman are? All the Nolan fanboys want their films to be shot with a dark filter, with shadows in every corner and "heavy" dialogue, but that's not a DC thing. It's a Nolan, Zach Snyder thing. DC comics have always been equally as dark or lighthearted as Marvel comics. If you read the batman comics, he's one of the funniest characters around. He's always making really funny observational jokes and dry quips. I'm not saying that fucked up shit doesn't happen in Batman comics, because it sure does, but it happens in Marvel comics too....like when the Hulk tore Wolverine in half... Once again, I ask: Is it impossible to enjoy both DC and Marvel equally?
          • qweqwu
            Again, another post that's so long I won't read it because it's wasting more of my time. No, you can't enjoy both, it's either DC for adults or Marvel for kiddies.
          • TheOct8pus
            You're an idiot. Brief enough for you?
          • qweqwu
            Finally, a straight answer. Now, I can tell you to go fuck yourself.
          • TheOct8pus
            There you go!! That's more like it! Haha! This is the type of response I was expecting from someone at your intellectual level....

      • qweqwu
        Who cares? It's not like I make any money out of it, and their movies make so much money because there are a lot more dumb people than smart ones.

  • Nash
    Marvel is great. But from now on it's gonna be a different ball-game. This is very promising. The right dark tone in the visuals that is typical for DC. The voice-overs are intriguing and not cheesy. There seems to be an interesting underlaying story that involves the corruption of power. And maybe best of all: Affleck looks extremely convincing in these shots. I think the next test will be moving images of Eisenberg. If he can convince too, this is going to be very interesting.
  • TK
    Wow was not expecting that really. I love it. It's great to have DC back in the game. i love marvel movies but can't have them having a monopoly over comic book movies. It's also nice to have a different tone and some variety in this genre.
  • JBroti
    I felt this trailer was too dark. Literally, most the shots were shrouded in darkness. I get that DC wants to make their movies more "dark and gritty" but that trailer was too much. And it didn't really excite me besides seeing Bat and Sup in the same shot, in the same movie. I want to see this and I'll be there opening night, but compared to the first trailer we got for Avengers AOU, this doesn't leave me with the sheer excitement of "Summer of 2016 can't get here soon enough!". And I laugh at everyone saying, "bye bye Marvel". It's clear these two proporties are going for a different tone and instead of respecting both for being different, it's all of a sudden, DC is better. Remember this is one trailer compared to Marvel's 10 success movies (with a hiccup here and there) and DC's last installment, MoS was a mixed bag of reviews. So I don't know why people are throwing Marvel under the bus when we no very little as to how this movie will preform.
    • Dotpols
      To be honest, I actually liked that darkness. It made it feel like a return to the Michael Keaton films, which while different, were the first movies to really put comic books on film in a way that made the idea of comic book movies seem viable.
  • Eggyweggs
    As expected (massive Superman fan), this is goose bump inducing wonder! Snyder takes everything to a whole new level. The power and presence of these two even in this trailer is tremendous... and we've still got Wonder Woman to see yet! Oh my!

  • Nawor Ranie
    from the director of the snoozefest Suckpunch with the actor from the mind numbingly boring Daredevil movie the expectations are not gonna be a good movie. Marvel and DC are similar in the sense they both have great stories and characters that they can create movies or series from. The differences are huge whereas Marvel has the directoral and acting talent on point, DC has not figured out how to create a steady track record of successful films. I dare say DC has more failures than success when it comes to the big screen. I do not see this film breaking a billion, Avengers 2 and Star Wars 7 will both make more than this will at the box office, Ben Assfleck will be Garfielded and the Justice League movie will be B-grade cannon fodder. DC is simply Marvel circa 1970 with a 2015 sheen trying to cover up the lack of quality with eye-popping visuals without substance. My advice to DC and Warner Bros is to cancel the entire plan, start over with Batman 1 then Superman 1 then Green Lantern 1 then Wonder Woman 1 then Batman 2 Superman 2 JL Movie GL 2 then WM 2 then JL 3 Batman 3 GL 3 WM 3 and end with Superman 3. Yes DC is at Pase one while Marvel is planning Phase three and it will take long time to catch up but while Marvel is winding down is good for DC to take extra time and care and create quality material that stands-up to the quality of the source material.
    • SallySpider
      Nolan > Any Marvel director You're an idiot if you think Joss Whedon is anything but a glorified Michael Bay. The Avengers was just a CG orgy with ZERO plot.
      • Dotpols
        I think Nolan is a great director generally, but man he dropped the ball big time with the end of the Batman trilogy... and not even just TDKR - half the third act of DK was terrible too. The entire thing with Dent being fast-tracked into two-face was tacked on, over-done and just not compelling at all. It almost ruined what was on it's way to being the perfect film up until that point. I'd talk about TDKR in more detail, but that's honestly God Father III territory for him and the less said the better. As for Joss Whedon... don't call him Michael Bay that's just low lol. Whedon does fun and engaging comic book stuff, but he actually does it WELL. It may not have the gravitas of other films, but his pacing, dialogue and the relationships he establishes with his characters are actually interesting and enjoyable.
        • SallySpider
          hahahahahahahh....what a moron
          • Dotpols
            Ah, so we agree - Nolan was a total Moron to jam the two-face transformation into 20 minutes and make it over the loss of his girl-friend of 2 weeks. And there I was thinking you were just a retarded DC fanboi troll.
          • SallySpider
            nolan haters are dumber than dumb
          • Dotpols
            Who said I hate Nolan? Inception, Batman Begins and Momento are some of my favourite films. DK was close to brilliant, but he screwed it in the third act with the two-face thing. If you can't see that, then you're just a lame fanboi who is incapable of objectivity. But we already knew that.
          • SallySpider
            I take that back though. M. Bay haters are the real dumberer ones! Nolan is overrated. Im just so high on smack right now.. have to focus on that.. see you later dude πŸ˜€ <3
          • SallySpider
            Only kidding of course.. Nolan sucks :)
  • izakkson
    I didn't hate it but I can't say I'm overly excited for this. Perhaps I will be closer to its release but after the latest Star Wars teaser this week I don't think anything (other than maybe Spectre) will come close to my excitement level for that film for a while.
  • Oriyan J. Ovadia
    I'm having mixed feelings of excitement and disbelief in this.
  • Dubmaster2010
    I can't help. Ich think it looks like a well done fan movie. DC still didn't get it to make me excited for their movies. The difference between Marvel and DC is that Marvel got the right directors for their projects. Directors who know how to make a Superhero Movie. Green Lantern was boring and silly, Man of Steel was silly and boring too (but still the best superman Movie i think), and Batman got a new actor. So they can't build up on old success with the Dark Knight. I hope it will be good but i think it will be as unperfect as the other DC Movies.
    • SallySpider
      Marvel has only ever had one solid director and that was Ang Lee. Nolan > any Marvel director by a million miles hahahahah
    • SallySpider
      I was just kidding though. Nolan is more like Bay.. a master.
  • mooreworthy
    Trailer relieves some doubt, but with the Snyder's last two films have been underwhelming. This will be a no-brainier for me in that I will be there at midnight; I just don't think that Marvel/ Disney has anything to be worried about, especially with AoU coming out in a matter of weeks (oh the wait) and Force Awakens trailer kicking Sith @$$.

  • TheOct8pus
    Meh....I'll take Star Wars Ep 7 over any superhero movie.
    • Sky
      no one cares
      • TheOct8pus
        That is a lie. I care. And you care enough to comment, that's 2 people who care.
        • Sky
          Exactly YOU are no one. And I am Yeezus, no one and everything
          • TheOct8pus
            Really? You're quoting Kanye? The world's biggest douchebag?
          • Sky
            YES. The Worlds Greatest Douchebag
    • Akirakorn
      I'll take Star Wars Ep 1 or 2... or even 3 over... u get the idea.
      • Dotpols
        Sheesh! Episodes 1 through 3? Well... I'd probably take prolonged dental torture over watching any of those again.
        • TheOct8pus
          I couldn't agree more. It makes me sad that those movies exist.
        • MLTC
          I've heard that prisoners in North Korea get to watch Episode 1-3 every day...! :-(
    • Dotpols
      Well to be frank Star Wars is basically a Superhero movie itself. I mean think about it - its main protagonists/antagonists are characters that can control people's minds, are capable of telekinesis and can even shoot lightening from their fingers whilst wheeling laser swords. I mean heck, if a Jedi isn't a superhero then I'm pretty bloody sure Iron man, captain America, batman, hawke eye etc don't come close to qualifying either.
      • TheOct8pus
        I agree that Star Wars characters have superpowers, but Star Wars is a grand space opera set in many planets with different races of aliens etc. That's what makes it so unique....it takes place on foreign worlds with logic-defying machinery, whereas Superhero films (mostly) take place on Earth with regular people among a few superheroes.
        • shiboleth
          And that what Star Wars movies also are; the allegory of different worlds and beliefs on Earth. Nobody really believed that this is intergalactic story ... But you can dream of it, that's for sure ...
        • Dotpols
          Fair points, although I'd argue Marvel is now straddling both those genres thanks to avengers and especially GotG - which also took place on "foreign worlds with logic-defying machinery." Don't get me wrong, I love the original Star Wars trilogy - even in spite of Return of the Jedi's annoying ewok sub-plot - but I can't honestly say I'm more excited for this film than I am for upcoming comic book movies like Avengers, or Batman v Superman. That's partly because the prequels killed my love for Star Wars as a whole though... I mean you just can't unsee that monstrosity and worse still it's now f##king canon! I genuinely hope that this new trilogy will be great, but for me at least that trailer was a bit hit and miss (new Sith Lord looked kinda lame in my view and Harrison Ford's presence brought back bad memories of Crystal Skull) so it's now just another film in a crowded field of exciting looking films.
          • TheOct8pus
            Prequels? What prequels?
          • MLTC
            The Force is strong with your denial! :-)
    • SallySpider
      Then why did you bother watching the trailer
      • TheOct8pus
        Do I really have to answer your stupid asinine question? I watched the trailers for Star Wars and for Bat v Supes....I'll take Star Wars Ep 7 over this one anytime.
        • ErrorSapiens
          Do you swallow? I do
        • SallySpider
          I`m sorry, cant answer you right now, to busy impersonating other users and stranglemasturbating myself while watching TF4 :) Swallowing is my job btw.
          • TheOct8pus
            That's a very insightful comment. I'll take it under advisement... (slowly walks away backward...)
  • TheOct8pus
    In reading the comments below I've noticed a few things. There are DC lovers and Marvel lovers. Apparently, if you love one, you have to shit on the other. I personally enjoyed most Marvel movies, and I'm psyched to see Age of Ultron. That said, I'm also psyched to see this film, because come on! It's friggin Batman and Superman beating the fuck out of each other! Can't we enjoy both franchises without getting so political?
    • Justin R
      I gotta agree, though Marvel does have my heart with the world they've built and the success they have, I'm quite curious on seeing this and hoping it does well. I was disappointed with the way MoS turned out, but seeing Batman and Superman getting ready to go head to head definitely peeked my interest. I hope this film does well, but I'll still enjoy Marvel movies just as I always have. I do gotta throw in, at about 1:30 into the trailer, seeing Batman come out of the wreckage, he looks pissed off and jacked up, I have a feeling Affleck will do well as Batman, or at least I hope he does.
    • Dubmaster2010
      Sure :-) But in my opinion...there are only 3 good DC Movies...The Dark Knight Trilogy. The rest of it wasn't really good...even if they got a good ComicBook Origin. But Superman is the worst superhero ever πŸ˜€ And DC/Warner don't know how to build up a universe. Two examples... 1. The TV Series of Flash and Arrow are very famous...and the fans love it. Why don't use these Actors in the movies? There is no reason to recast the roles...that is so crazy...why they don't see their potential? FAILED 2. Christopher Nolan produced a very good and famous Trilogy with a very open end. Why they didn't used the challenge...to make a movie which build up on the trilogy. I red about Joseph Gordon Lewitt would have loved to play Batman or Robin in upcoming movies. It was a perfect beginning for a new trilogy. FAILED I really hope that movie will be good and they will build a "well working" universe for DC. But i only got a little hope for it after "Man of Steel" and "Green Lantern".
      • jeanluke55
        Since when did DC want to build some universe.. When marvel is putting old news on the screen.. We have the best of DC everywhere.. On television they are number 1 and once dawn of justice hits the screen it will be number 1... DC doesn't need to tie all of if together to be great.. They just are.. Marvel is getting boring same characters with very little plots... and most of those comics need to be redone.. Not rewritten... Most people need to realize that it is just a fad and in 10 yrs if will all be done again... By different directors and different actors all trying for the almighty dollar..
      • Steven
        Yep never understood why they didn't simply build on Nolan's trilogy. Hell if it had been a success they may have even been able to tempt Bale to make an appearance 10 years or so down the line.
      • SallySpider
        Original Superman is better than any Marvel movie
        • TheOct8pus
          That is a great movie....but I'm not sure how well it stands the test of time....and spinning around the world backward to go back in time, added a whole new level of wackyness
          • SallySpider
            Yeah...Marvel wouldn't know anything about wacky...lol
    • Dotpols
      Agreed. I honestly don't get the DC v Marvel thing. Huge fan of at least half of the Nolan Batman films and think plenty of the Marvel movies are pretty awesome too. So I don't really get why people need to be tribal about it, particularly when this isn't a zero sum game scenario. It costs less than the price of a meal to see a movie and DC and Marvel movies don't often open the same weekend, so only the irrationally tribal will be avoiding the other company's films.
    • ari smulders
      i am from the netherlands and we don't have that kind conflict between comics! So i hope both wiil be good!
      • MLTC
        Suske en Wiske! :-)
        • ari smulders
          Ja haha! En storm was mijn favoriet, eigenlijk alles van Don lawrence!
          • MLTC
            I'm from Sweden and read Suske en Wiske (Finn och Fiffi) in Swedish, but I'm sad to report they no longer translate it into Swedish. I visited The Netherlands last year and the Suske en Wiske fanclub day. :-) Suske en Wiske is my favorite comic!
          • ari smulders
            Everybody here in the Netherlands reads suske en wiske at one time, me too, my favorite story is about the theme park the efteling overhere. It's the best what Belgium got to offer :suske and wiske! :)
          • MLTC
            I've read that one in Swedish and it's not bad. I have a couple of stories that are my favorites. Suske en Wiske is the best the world got to offer! <3
          • ari smulders
            And of course the time machine :) Tea indeed!
  • TitoG
    Miracles? How does that even make any sense? He says "Devils."
  • Mark Brackney
    So, I guess Batman is the new Alpha, now? GREEEEAAT…….
  • davidshaw
    you god damn fools really need to change the first line of the article, it makes you look like idiots. he very, very clearly says "devils", not "miracles". jesus fucking christ
    • Xerxexx
      Yikes.
  • Xerxexx
    Affleck you the bomb in Phantoms yo!
  • I like this version.
    • qweqwu
      Exactly what I was thinking during that scene, haha
  • Have Hope
    Why does Batman sound like the devil?
    • SallySpider
      You preferred Bale with smoker's voice?
  • ProjectionistHP
    This looks so damn awesome that it is ridiculous. Takes a leap to darkness from Nolans movies. Totally to a different side than marvels universe. Interested to hear what Affleck will soundlike without his battlearmor...
  • shiboleth
    To tell the truth, the only thing that really bothers me with those new Superman movies are religious overtones. That's kinda gross ... I know, at least for me ...
    • avconsumer2
      They are laying it on a bit thick at this point.
    • I'm Batman
      I disagree and agree at the same time. Part of me thinks "yeah, that would make sense. If we all saw some guy like that in today's world, it might legitimately change the way we all think about God." But then I have a side of me that gets annoyed too. Like, "come on, we're all here to watch superheros fight, save innocent people, take down the badguy -- we're not here to discuss how we'd worship Superman."
      • shiboleth
        I must be honest, I'm not a religious person (and am not willing to start a discussion on that subject, especially not here), but I'm mentioning it since I never connected any superhero to any religious idea whatsoever. I always took them as some secular, lay incorporation of many diverse strengths and powers that people have in themselves... In fact, for me, valid idea of superhero is that we are finally and totally free of any religion. And that might direct us into thinking of all the possibility that are in front us, or, better said, in all of us without religion ... So, if there's any worship, it's about people themselves ...
  • avconsumer2
    Eh... still not sold on Batfleck. Withholding judgment till viewing.
  • ff
    meh
  • SacLA
    So does the sub-title hint at the beginning of the Justice League?
  • Jesse
    I do not mind the religious overtone that this trailer had in the beginning. The "False God" snippet was pretty cool too. I like that we are seeing how the world would perceive a "higher being" if you will. Also, I love the new Batman suit. Clearly he has been using that costume for awhile and has been sewing up the knives and bullet wounds.

    Comic movies are for obese americans with diabetes...Wes Anderson movies are the only works of art coming out of hollywood these days
  • SallySpider
    I couldnt take getting my sore arsetroll hind verbally smacked, so now I sit alone in bitterness while masturbating and impersonating other users on Disqus. Following the law of the arsetroll. That and my love for Ben Affleck.
