What a wild couple of days, huh? On top of getting a simply AMAZING new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we now have our first official teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While we weren’t supposed to get it this early, I can’t complain about it either!
There’s a LOT of things going on in this trailer, and not all of it is very clear. I really like the theme taking place here though, that Superman’s actions are having dramatic consequences on the world landscape. People are looking up to him as a god, while others are seeing the problems inherent with his superpowers. Some shots are intriguing, like the armed people kneeling down before him and wearing Superman symbol patches. What’s going on here? It almost feels as though Superman has taken a darker turn with is powers and doing something he shouldn’t…which is why Batman gets involved.
There are a lot of questions after seeing this trailer, and I’m anxious to know more. Seeing Batman fully revealed is awesome, and seeing him in armor at the end, coupled with the bone chilling “Do you bleed?” line is pretty damn awesome. While I know not everyone is pleased with this trailer, frankly I think part of that may be due to The Force Awakens trailer. It’s hard to be impressed by much so soon after that.
Personally, I’m digging the vibe and tone of this trailer. I really want to know more about what’s happening and how it will all play out. What do you guys think about it?
