Batman v Superman trailer
Tell me. Do you bleed?
Apparently the leaked one really annoyed Zack Snyder, as he released official Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer today.
Here is a few things I’ve spotted on the video and my comments on them. May contain spoilers from comic books.
It’s no secret I hate Superman. Like, I hate him very much. This is one of the reasons why I like The Dark Knight Returns, among other things. And upcoming Superman ( or Batman?) movie is heavily inspired from The Dark Knight Returns (TDKR), a comic book features an old, retired Batman who cannot resist to wear the cowl to clean corrupted Gotham City once more. He confronts with Two Face, Joker and lastly with Superman himself, who is became a puppet and fighting for the American government.
The trailer starts with a scene showing a statue of Superman, possibly in Metropolis, while people are commenting about him (TV shows?).
Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?
Human beings have a horrible track record of following people with great power.
And we hear a line from Lex Luthor himself:
Devils don’t come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky.
And while people a chanting like “Go home, go home” we see this:
While these happens, in one scene we see Superman is holding a broken Russian satellite or rocket. In TDKR, Superman detonates a Russian nuke in the sky and it turns off all electronics in U.S.
Another interesting scene is this one. Did you notice soldiers have Superman logo on their shoulders? These two indicate Superman is a toy of the government like in the comics. OMG I hate him so much.
In TDKR; media, police and even president of USA hates Batman because of his methods. It seems like Superman is the hated one on the movie.
(probably) Alfred is talking now while Bruce who is not looking old at all is staring at batsuit. Like he hasn’t worm the suit like a long time. Maybe Jason died and he quit?
A few explosions with Prometheus-esque music later we see Batman in his suit. This looks really good. And he is on top of a build with a sniper rifle. This scene is directly taken from TDKR and it was actually a grapple rifle.
Here is Bats in his power suit. Woa, this one really looks like the one in comics. And white glowing eyes looks amazing. Personally I think they really should go with white lenses in his regular suit too, this is a part of Batman.
And Batman speaks:
Tell me. Do you bleed?
I liked it. Sound is a bit robotic because of the suit but other than that, it really sounds like Batman in my head. This is a huge relief after throat-cancer-bat-voice in Nolan movies.
