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.

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 »

Warner Bros. offered a little taste of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this week with an intriguing, if puzzling, tease, and now the full-length trailer is here in all its grim, gritty glory.
Among other things, the latest Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer confirms one very persistent rumor and debunks another, and offers the first look at the three superheroes standing side-by-side (as seen above).

With the Captain America: Civil War trailer arriving just last week, comic book movie fans are now hungry for a look at the other big superhero battle coming in 2016. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice delivered a full trailer this past summer at Comic-Con and online at the same time, but with the movie just a few months away, fans want to see more. And they’ll get their wish next week.
Some kind of exclusive preview for Batman v Superman will be airing during the midseason finale of Gotham on Monday, and a promo for it features the cast of the show weighing in on who they think would win in a fight between The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel. Check it out! Read More »
The debate over Man of Steel‘s third act isn’t going to end anytime soon. It’s been a topic of conversation ever since the film was released, and with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out in the next few months, expect even more discussions about it. The film will address the third-act destruction we saw in Man of Steel, and will question how much Supes is responsible for all those deaths. Now, comic book writer Mark Millar has weighed in on the level of violence we saw in the comic book origin story.
After the jump, Mark Millar discusses Man of Steel and comic book movies in general.

Everyone has been going crazy over Star Wars: The Force Awakens this week, which means some new photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got a little overshadowed by all the buzz from a galaxy far, far away. The new images don’t reveal much from the forthcoming face-off between DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, but new details about the prologue involving Bruce Wayne and the origin of his rage and distrust of Superman are worth pointing out. Check ’em out after the jump. Read More »
There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.
In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.
However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »
Even before the Comic-Con trailer for Suicide Squad officially made it online, spy photos from the Warner Bros. set had confirmed that Ben Affleck will appear in the DC Comics cinematic universe film as Batman. It only makes sense, as his arch nemesis, The Joker (Jared Leto) is a primary character in the movie.
However, what about his future opponent, The Man of Steel? Since Superman and Batman will soon come to blows in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, it stands to reason that Superman could get involved with what happens in Suicide Squad. Well, someone finally asked Henry Cavill about whether or not we’ll see Superman in Suicide Squad. So what did he say? Read More »
