Here’s the first full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it sees the world of DC’s comic book heroes reeling from the after-effects of Man of Steel.
As humanity struggles to come to terms with the presence of the godlike Superman (Henry Cavill) we hear a clamor of voices discussing the post-Superman world. Some sound like real-world quotes — is that Neil deGrasse Tyson? — while others, such as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, are definitely unique residents of the DC Movie Universe.
And then there’s Jeremy Irons as Alfred, who is heard in voiceover after the rumbling dies down, and Ben Affleck, whose Batman looks incredibly huge even without armor. The confrontation promised by the movie’s title is teased with a question phrased as both a command, and a threat: “Tell me… do you bleed?”
Trailer via Zack Snyder, who posted it after yesterday’s online leak made an official release absolutely neccessary.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Holly Hunter (also heard in this trailer) in a role newly created for the film, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel.
The film is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to open in the US on March 25, 2016.
