We have come a very long way indeed from George Clooney’s nipples. The first two TV Spots for the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice have just been released and Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader could not be more badass. The second spot consists of already-seen footage of Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor but it’s the first, 31-second tease that’s delighting fans. Ever wondered what would happen were Batman to slam the Batmobile into Superman? Wonder no more.
The outcome of that particular confrontation is probably not surprising in the slightest, the fantastic new-look Batmobile merely bouncing off the seemingly indestructible Kryptonian and ending up a fiery mess. Does this scene mean the end for Bat’s ride in the movie? Fans will hope not; his new wheels have been given the mark of approval across the board.
In what could mark the first confrontation as their alter-egos the two have in the movie, Superman says nothing. Instead we have Affleck’s Batman menacingly demand, “Tell me. Do you bleed?” before simply stating, “You will” after Supes squeezes a trademark super-frown out and flies off. Affleck looks suitably pissed at who he considers a grave risk to mankind and Superman looks…well, he looks totally unfazed. We can only presume this all precedes the major mayhem and destruction the two generate before teaming up with Wonder Woman to defeat Doomsday.
