There have been so many damn Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers and teasers I’ve lost count. But this one is supposedly the final one. At least until the next one. Man I tell you, this justice is taking its sweet time dawning.
Just a couple weeks out from the big superhero battle royal of the spring, we’ve got this final “international” trailer, remixing a bunch of old footage, but also sprinkling in a few new beats as well. And it all certainly does look intense. With so much of their time spent glowering at and punching and kicking each other through roofs and walls and such, I don’t know when Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) are going to find any time to fight Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), or hang out with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), or beat up Doomsday (Abomination from The Incredible Hulk).
The whole Batman fighting Superman angle is still the least interesting part of this to me, but there are some damn cool moments in this trailer, including the newspaper clipping sent to Bruce Wayne that reads “Wayne Tower Devastated” with the words “You let your family die” scrawled on it in red ink. Could that be a note from the Joker? Or maybe it’s Lex Luthor pretending to be the Joker to mess with Bruce Wayne. Or maybe it’s Egghead. You can never trust Egghead!
Batman v Superman finally dawns in theaters on March 25 after probably eight more trailers.
