With enemies like these, who needs friends, right? The final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer shows Batman (Ben Affleck) basically preparing to go to war with Superman (Henry Cavill). And to be sure, Batman makes a pretty solid argument in favor of taking down the Man of Steel. “He has the power to wipe out the entire human race,” says Bruce. “If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty.”
What we know that they don’t, however, is that this is just a prelude a long and beautiful friendship, or at least frenemy-ship. As the part after the colon in the title suggests, they’re eventually going to wind up on the same team against the real villains. But as the Batman v Superman final trailer shows, it’s gonna take a whole lot of action and fistfights and big shiny explosions to get there. Watch it after the jump. Read More »
We’re about two months away from seeing several DC Comics superheroes converge on the big screen for the first time ever in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. If the most recent theatrical trailer didn’t show enough, the TV spot with Superman denting the Batmobile and footage from the DC Films TV special last week gave us plenty more teases of what to expect from this clash of comic titans. And now a couple more Batman v Superman TV spots show off just how tense things are between the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck). Watch! Read More »
Can you think of a more romantic spot for a first kiss than when you’re surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands, of dead bodies? Doesn’t exactly set the mood, does it? Lois Lane (Amy Adams) was into it, though, and she even cracked a joke (“It’s downhill after the first kiss”) amongst the chaos. It’s one of the tone deaf moments of Man of Steel‘s third act, which has been dividing fans ever since the film’s release. But to this day, director Zack Snyder stands by the destruction of Metropolis.
After the jump, Zack Snyder defends Man of Steel and discusses the repercussions its destruction will create in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could be a very good movie, but you wouldn’t know if from much of the marketing. The trailers have been all over the place. Some of the clips have been baffling. And yet, I’ve been wondering if the issue here has been entirely about the advertising and not necessarily the movie itself. None of the actual footage looked bad taken on its own, but the way it was being presented to us felt half-baked.
The CW aired a big special about the burgeoning DC superhero movie universe last night (with the stilted title of DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League) and, naturally, new footage from director Zack Snyder‘s upcoming superhero showdown was unveiled. And while there is enough new footage included here to be worthy of your dissection, what’s really interesting is the footage we’ve already seen. When presented with flair and competence, stuff that looked rough before looks a helluva lot better.

Ever since the first teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’ve been treated to Ben Affleck‘s Batman kindly asking Henry Cavill‘s Superman if he bleeds. This bizarre exchange has been the subject of countless raised eyebrows and more than a few stifled in-theater chortles. You can say a great many things about the trailers for Zack Snyder‘s superhero epic, but everyone seems to be in agreement that this is one odd line of dialogue upon which to hang so much of your marketing.
Now, thanks to a newly released clip from the film, we get to see that line in context. Does it sound better when performed in a proper scene? Does Superman have a response to it? Does it feel any less creepy?

Even though the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just over a couple months away, it doesn’t feel like it. Sure, the excitement is high, but it’s just strange for a movie of that scale to come out in March. But since we’re so close to the release, it’s time for the onslaught of TV spots to begin. Director Zack Snyder just shared a new tease of the movie and it features a taunt from The Dark Knight that fans will love to hear, especially after Superman damages his ride. Watch! Read More »
There has been a variety of cool news for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lately. A trio of new character posters just debuted, finally giving Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman her own poster, and there’s a chance that the film might end up getting a 70mm release thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
And for Christmas Eve, we get a small gift from overseas with a new international Batman v Superman TV spot, and The Dark Knight isn’t afraid of taunting The Man of Steel at all. Read More »

The next few months are going to be vital for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The subject matter of the movie alone makes it clear that a lot of people are going to see this thing no matter what – this is the first time we’ve seen a film like this in any capacity. However, the latest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel, the one we picked apart frame by frame, the one that is being shown to record-breaking audiences around the world before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is genuinely lousy. That doesn’t mean the movie is bad, or even that the raw footage in the preview isn’t good, but it’s a disastrous piece of marketing that seems to go out of its way to make the movie look as unappealing as possible.
The newest international TV spot for the film isn’t that bad. It’s certainly better edited and it’s a little more focused on the main even of the movie, Batman and Superman dishing out pain and punches and grimaces, than the meandering main trailer. Most importantly, it contains just enough new shots and moments to be worthy of your time and feverish analysis.
Watch the new Batman v Superman footage after the jump.

Since the movie is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that most of the marketing has been centered around seeing these two superhero icons go head-to-head on the big screen for the first time. However, Wonder Woman stole the show in the latest trailer for the spring blockbuster, so it’s time she found her way to the spotlight.
Gal Gadot finally gets her own Wonder Woman poster along with two new posters featuring the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. However, they’re a little tainted by the big giant logos that are slapped on top of them. Read More »
