This latest trailer seems to be the plot of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in a nutshell. Let’s take another look!
Here’s what we’ve got: Batman is mad at Superman over the events of Man of Steel. Lex has whipped up anti Superman sentiment all over the place and since the Caped Crusader can’t put the Last Son of Krypton down, Lex has gotten Zod’s body and somehow made Doomsday out of it.
I guess we didn’t learn our lesson from The Incredible Hulk movie in terms of Bad Guy character design, huh? Anyway, the heroes come together and beat his ass.
This seems like a decent idea for a movie, but there’s something about this trailer that makes me think this isn’t going to work.
This other weird little bit they released doesn’t make me any more hopeful. I’ve read rumors that this is from a Batman dream sequence, but I’d hoped we wouldn’t have a repeat of the pile of skulls thing from Man of Steel… we’ll see.
The comic-con trailer filled me with such hope, but these latest reveals make me worry. It’ll be the end of March before we know it, when all questions will be answered.
