Watch a ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer, Old-Timey Style

by Charles Bramesco October 19, 2015 @ 12:18 PM
The video title clocks the date of imaginary-release at 1949, but janky capes-and-tights pictures in the style emulated above filled cineplexes through the ‘50s, thrilling audiences with their tales of derring-do. If you’re so inclined, feel free to interpret the rudimentary writing on display in the video, sampled from the crude superhero films of the era, as a comment on Zack Snyder’s capabilities as a stylist of dialogue. If not, simply sit back and enjoy the skill with which bits and pieces of old-timey Batman and Superman flicks have been stitched together to create something new.

While neither Batman vs. Superman nor Suicide Squad had a major presence at #NYCC, they did still find ways to participate. Batman vs. Superman had a LexCorp booth, which provided free Wi-Fi for attendees, plus also free LexCorp branded cell phone chargers. Suicide Squad didn’t do anything that flashy or formal, but one of its biggest stars did make a very special appearance. Jared Leto was in attendance and took some photos with Joker and Batman cosplayers, who had no idea who they were taking a picture with

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice doesn’t hit theaters until next March (if you can believe it), but we’ve already been inundated with so much marketing, including teasers, trailers, featurettes, photos, et al.

Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice raised more than a few eyebrows — Eisenberg is typically known for playing nebbish, fidgety characters, but if the trailers for Batman v Superman are any indication, it looks as though Zack Snyder put those qualities to interesting use, giving us a Lex Luthor unlike any we’ve seen before. If you’re curious to know more about Eisenberg’s Luthor, this latest piece of viral marketing sheds some light on what Snyder and Eisenberg are doing with the notorious Superman baddie.

There’s been a lot of uncertainty about the Man of Steel sequel — Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was rumored to be involved, but then more rumors started circulating suggesting that Warner Bros. has put Man of Steel 2 on hold for the time being, and the film doesn’t seem to have a place on the studio’s DC film schedule. According to Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is basically a Man of Steel sequel, so you don’t need to really worry about it.

Fandom among TV superheroes has ups and downs across both Marvel and DC; the former sharing continuity, but never screentime with its cinematic brethren, while DC’s lot keep explicitly separate from the Batman v. Superman world, and its Justice League. Now, DC’s Diane Nelson opens up as to why Arrow or The Flash will never join the Man of Steel, lest they “hinder the ability” of creatives to tell good stories.

Matt Damon Says Jason Bourne Would ‘Kick the S---’ Out of Batman

Part of the fun comic book fans have had over the years is debating which superhero could defeat which superhero. Could Wolverine beat The Hulk? Could the X-Men beat The Avengers? There have been entire lines of books devoted to this very topic. Heck, Batman vs. Superman and Captain America: Civil War are both based on this very conceit. So, you can’t blame Matt Damon for getting into the fun when asked if his Jason Bourne, who he calls “my superhero”, could take his pal Ben Affleck’s Batman. As you might expect, Damon’s not stepping down from the challenge.

Earlier this week, Batman vs. Superman star Jesse Eisenberg said that their superhero movie would be “very serious” while alluding to Marvel and dropping a passive-aggressive dig on other “cartoonish” superhero movies. Today, Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder echoed that sentiment, but didn’t beat around the bush, mentioning Ant-Man by name and calling Marvel’s movie just a “flavor of the week”.
