‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer: Doomsday Has Landed
If that brief clip from earlier this week featuring the Dark Knight being unmasked by the Man of Steel didn’t do the trick for you, then you’re in luck because Warner Bros. has released a new, full trailer from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Following the premiere on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the latest preview for the epic superhero battle is now online for your viewing pleasure, featuring plenty of new footage of Bats, Supes, Wonder Woman and an appearance from the film’s big bad.
There’s a whole lot happening in the new, three-minute trailer, which begins with Clark Kent encountering Bruce Wayne at a party, where the seeds of their impending war are first planted. We get a bit more time with Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, who seems a little cartoonish in his initial introduction, but that might lighten the film’s seemingly dour mood a bit.
The big moment is, of course, the appearance of Doomsday, who has been heavily rumored as a villain for some time now, and — well, he’s here:
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman also gets a bit of a classic comedic introduction and a little more screen time:
And of course there’s the big hero shot:
Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice pits the two iconic heroes against one another in a story loosely inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns:
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.
