Because I’m a (film) comic book geek, the hot off the press trailer of the upcoming DC Comics film Batman v Superman made me think, “why not share?” From the little I understand, this is going to help launch a bigger universe for DC Comics a-la Marvel’s Avengers. Since I’m not overly attached to the Christian Bale Batman (I’ve seen only one of the Christopher Nolan films), I have no opinion on Ben Affleck taking on the role of the iconic character, he looks convincing enough. In 2016 and 2017, DC has a LOT of superhero films in the works. Everything from Justice League (an “assemble” piece) to Wonder Woman. batman v superman: dawn of justice teaserBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Teaser #FWarchives Click To Tweet
The plot for this March 2016 film is still “unknown,” but I do want it to be a good set-up for the Justice League formation. But enough rambling. Take a look at the trailer.
The voiceover is fantastic (creepy!) and the “tone” of the film looks much darker than even Man of Steel. Beyond that, I will admit, this looks… interesting and possibly “fun” depending on how it all goes down. There’s rumors, a host of superheroes will appear (The Flash, Wonder Woman), which might be fun with Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman and Amy Adams as Lois Lane; two actors I always enjoy.
