Batman V Superman… the time has come. No, the film is not out yet (out March 25th). It’s that time before the premier when a films marketing department goes nuts and releases one TV spot after another, practically beating everyone over the head to remind them that it’s almost time for the show. And here we are today with another Bat vs Supes trailer. This, coming right off the back of the recent spot which had Batman slamming the Batmobile into supes (the attack was not effective). This new clip, shows us what happens after that.
The new clip debuted by director Zack Snyder on Conan last night, giving us an extended look at the “do you bleed?” scene.
The scene itself could arguably make it look like Supes has put Batman in his place. Let me tell, nobody puts Batman in the corner! As Batman himself (in the comic) once famously said “If Clark wanted to, he could use his super speed and squish me into cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the kryptonite, he’s got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark is essentially a good person… and deep down, I am not.”
Let’s applaud the marketing department on putting the focus on what everyone is really interested, the titanic match of the man of steel vs the Bat of Gotham. Almost makes you forget that Wonder Women, Lex Luthor, Doomsday and the kitchen sink is shoehorned into this movie.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne and Amy Adams, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will arrive in UK and US cinemas on March 25, 2016
