If you didn’t tune into Gotham tonight, you missed the premiere of the latest sneak peek at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — no worries if you didn’t catch it on FOX, because Warner Bros. has released the special teaser online, featuring new footage of the epic battle between Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel.
It’s a short teaser lifted from a single sequence in the film, with Affleck’s Batman chained up in a cave with two other mystery men hanging nearby. Cavill’s seething Superman enters and marches straight up to Batman, removing his mask and discarding it with a look of obvious disgust on his face. And…that’s it. It’s brief but effective, and definitely has us curious about the circumstances that lead to this particular confrontation, which is sure to be one of many culminating in an epic battle.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also features Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane reprising their roles from Man of Steel, along with Holly Hunter as a new character, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Jason Momoa’s debut as Aquaman. The film hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
