It’s here, dear readers, I’m on vacation! I’ll be out of town for the next couple weeks, and in order to not deprive you of Trailer Trashin’, I’ve written four columns that will make their way to you over the next week or so, covering four of the biggest trailers that dropped in the later part of April. Third of these is the teaser trailer for next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Premise: Two years after the end of Man of Steel (2013), Superman (Henry Cavill) has taken a place among society as an icon and hero and has made the world safer to live in, but many distrust his altruism due to remembering the destruction from his battle in Metropolis, the foremost being corporate mogul and prominent Metropolis citizen Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Into the debate enters the billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck »

Warning: Potential Spoilers Below!
Following the rumours that Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman will feature in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, some new rumours have surfaced about the current filming in Toronto and how it affects Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
According to Latino-Review (who have been very spotty as of late), Affleck is in Toronto to film an extra scene with Jared Leto’s Joker which will be a flashback sequence in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The site claims that the scene they will be shooting sees The Joker use a crowbar to beat Jason Todd/Robin to death, which is why he is in prison during Suicide Squad.
This ties into previous rumours that Jason Todd will already be dead by the time Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice roles around (along with Jim Gordon), as well as other speculation that this version of »

By now, you've all seen the epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer that was released early on Friday. If you plan on seeing it in IMAX today, perhaps you'll also want to take a look at the recut version. Youtube user Bobby Burns has decided to give the impending DC Comic adventure a retro twist. Watch as he replaces Ben Affleck with Adam West and Henry Cavill with Christopher Reeve.
This rebooted sneak peek features footage from the original 1978 Warner Bros. release Superman, which introduced the world to the mild mannered Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent, a superhero masquerading as a newspaper journalist in Metropolis. We also get to see footage from the hugely popular 1966 TV series Batman, which features Adam West as a more colorful Dark Knight. Together, the superheroes offer a funnier, more lighthearted take on this big brewing brawl that will play itself out »
Hot on the heels of the new Star Wars movie flexing its muscles last week (as well as a hot new Trailer for Jurassic World earlier today), the sequel to Man of Steel also has sought to do the same. Yes, we got our first Teaser Trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice recently and at least to this humble writer, it was more than worth the wait. Besides showing off Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, we also got to see him in costume (and hear him) as the Caped Crusader himself. His upcoming clash next year with Henry Cavill’s son of Krypton looks like a true event movie. This is no surprise to any of you, but this film is going to set up a Justice League team up for the Warner Brothers/DC slate of heroes. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice picks up where Man of Steel left off, »

As someone counting the days till Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters, I’m incredibly excited to finally see the marketing machine turned on. On Friday night we got the first trailer and new images, and now we’ve got the first two teaser posters thanks to Snyder’s twitter feed. As you can see below, one poster features Batman with the Superman symbol across his face, while the Superman poster features a bat. What I dig about them is they’re asking you to pick a side and they’re the kind of posters that could be hanging in Gotham or Metropolis. I also like that they’re not your typical character poster that the studios release. Batman v Superman is the first time these characters will be in a movie together. Everything about this film should be cool and special. With Snyder tweeting »

Acting quickly to counter what has been seen as a negative reaction – albeit to a dreadful quality, pirated phone version – to his new promo, Zack Snyder tweeted out an official version of the first Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer, which has also hit the Tubes of You. Cheekily referencing its unofficial online debut with hash tags that included #NotBlurry and #NotPirated, the proper version arrives in crystal clear digital vision.But the tone and the style of the trailer remains dark and foreboding, with an initial voiceover of various people concerned about the effect that Superman has had (Metropolis: Never Forget!) and might have on planet Earth and its inhabitants. There is a somewhat natural worry that this powerful alien could be a massive threat to the world.And it’s a concern that Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne definitely appears to share initially, lest the movie »
After sneaking online in a low-quality cell-phone video form, the trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has now been officially released. In typical Snyder fashion, the trailer is dark and dour, with so much CGI, so much brooding, so much anger. It seems that the citizens of Metropolis didn’t appreciate how Superman pretty much destroyed their entire city in his Demi-God fisticuffs with Michael Shannon, likely killing millions of people in the process.In a display of anger, someone spray paints “False God” on a (CGI) Superman statue. “We’re talking about an alien,” intones one disembodied voice, “Whose very existence challenges our own sense of priority in the universe.” You can also hear Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luther saying, “Human beings have a horrible track record of following people with great power,” and Jeremy Irons’s Alfred Pennyworth talking about how some men »

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer leaked a few days ahead of schedule, ruining the April 20th IMAX event planned by director Zack Snyder. Rather than have a cameraphone-shot, subtitled version spreading online and spoiling the fun, Warner Bros instead dropped the official trailer on YouTube late Friday.
In the trailer's opening minute, we hear audio from a series of news programs debating whether Superman is a "savior" or a menace as the camera glides towards a giant statue dedicated to the superhero overlooking the Metropolis skyline. »

Today, we are exactly one year away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere on the big screen. To celebrate the long and tiresome wait, EW has debuted a first look image at one of the main characters yet to be revealed. Here, we meet Jesse Eisenberg as iconic DC villain Lex Luthor. The photo finally answers the question we've been asking for months: Yes, he will be bald!
EW also offers some new insight into this reimagining of the Metropolis millionaire who goes toe-to-toe with Superman and Batman. About Jesse Eisenberg's role as Lex Luthor, director Zack Snyder states:
"He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course....Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he »
Warning! There may be Spoilers ahead! Back in August, a report surfaced from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which revealed that the corpse of General Zod, played by Michael Shannon in 2013's Man of Steel, plays an important part in the events that unfold in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The earlier report, which was never confirmed, stated that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) was experimenting on Zod's dead body, since it is, "the key to his master plan to defeat Superman." While the report didn't divulge what exactly Luthor was using Zod's corpse for, today we have a new report from ComicBook.com that fills in the blanks.
Over the course of Luthor's experiments with Zod's corpse, he reportedly, "triggers the Doomsday genome" which re-animates the dead body and turns it into the villainous Doomsday. Granted, we've heard a number of Doomsday rumors over the past year, »
When your movie is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it better be something quite special, and beyond spectacular. These are not just two of DC Comics biggest superhero characters, but arguable the most iconic crime fighting warriors to exist in any medium. There is a lot of pressure for this to be one of the greatest movies ever made in the genre. In a recent interview, Henry Cavill promises just that, taking it one step further by claiming it as one for the record books. Speaking with The Daily Mail Online, the actor states:
"It's Zack Snyder so it's going to be a visual spectacle and it's cinematic history. We're doing Batman and we're doing Superman and it's all happening at the same time so fingers crossed it turns out to be as exciting as I think it is."
If we're to believe the constant stream of rumors on the Internet, »

Earlier today, an image surfaced that is reportedly from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that reveals the movie is actually being split in two, with the first part, Batman v Superman: Enter the Knight hitting theaters October 23, 2015, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arriving on its previously-issued release date of March 25, 2016. While the image's authenticity has not been confirmed or denied yet, Badass Digest reveals new details that indicate the movie will not be split in half, primarily because there just simply isn't enough there to do so. There will be potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
The site speculates that, according to the script they're familiar with, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could easily "clock in" with a run time of two hours and 20 minutes, and there may even be a natural splint point with a fight that occurs »
