Last week there was a leaked version of some of the first footage involving Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman film. It was terrible quality, but the buzz certainly was filling the internet full of pure excitement.
Now Warner Bros decided it was best to release the high quality version themselves, even though it was supposed to be tied to special IMAX events this week.
The footage is dark, gritty, and looks very serious in tone. The teaser makes it apparent that the public is still trying to wrap their heads around Superman. There are many who are weary and skeptical of him and see him as some sort of a false god. We hear a number of famous and recognizable voices all chiming in on the debate.
We also get our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman, and wow does he look perfect for the part. This Batman looks very weary, weathered, and distraught.
Many are saying this trailer looks dark and depressing, and it it appears that Snyder and his team believe this is the best way to go in setting up this shared cinematic universe. We can look forward to more of this moody style with the roll out of future films leading up to the inevitable Justice League film.
The teaser ends on a great cliffhanger, with Batman saying, “Do you bleed?….You will”.
This film will hit theaters March 25, 2016. What do you think of the new footage? Watch below and leave a comment.
