Tonight, there will be special screening of Batman V Superman trailer. One that is much different than we saw leaked and the one that was released to the public the day after. I can’t wait to see what was shown there.
Today I’m reviewing the trailer of the Batman V Superman film. What can I say, but, FUCKING AMAZING. This is the film all fans wanted to see, we’ve been waiting nearly 20 years for a film like this. From project after project being dropped, we finally get to see these two titans clash in the big screen.
The film does what it’s suppose to do. It tells you the dark undertone of what’s coming to this world. After Man Of Steel, Superman/Clark Kent is looked upon as a God by some. You see it in the images of people around him, trying to touch him, the lady trying to reach out to him and touch him in the sky. The troops bowing down to him as he was a king. That is such a big impact. And I believe this scenario is greater than him being the big boy scout of the classic DC eras, we’re he’s flying over for pie, where people don’t mind him flying around…THIS world is much better, it shows what the human, true human reaction would be. And you know this would be it.
But we also see half of the people hate his guts, and you see in the chanting among the crowd, the FALSE GOD painted on the Superman statue. There’s even one piece of audio where you can hear a man saying “ He brought his troops” meaning they blame him for all those deaths in Metropolis. And to have a statue made and placed in ground zero of this false god, it will send this group in a fit of rage. The tone has been set.
A lot of comments online are “ Why are they fighting, they’re heroes, shouldn’t they have fun and stick together.” DC is not going with the Superman and Batman BEST FRIENDS FOREVER off the bat. Are you kidding me, that would be sooo bad in their part. How can you trust a man like Superman after the events of Man Of Steel, think about it for a second. If you hadn’t seen a movie, and knew some God like man destroyed a whole city, would you be so easily to go up to him and say let’s team up. HELL NO. And this is where the beauty of this trailer comes next.
BEN AFFLECK as Bruce Wayne is awesome, it is, it truly is awesome. We heard Alfred tell him “That’s how it starts, a fever, a rage, the sense of powerlessness, that drives a good man, cruel.” And that drives the nail to the point of the why Batman takes arms against Superman. All his life Bruce has felt powerless, his parents were gunned down, he couldn’t do anything. His sidekick Jason Todd was killed by the Joker ( which we know will be a main focus in the storyline) and he couldn’t do anything to save him. These Gods fought and killed bystanders, and he still couldn’t do anything. Picture how weak you would feel, how hopeless you would feel, watching people die and you not being able to do a thing. AND that is the scars left on Bruce’s mind.
Now Bruce is tired of this, he doesn’t trust Superman, he doesn’t trust this God. So he’s going to cross a line, team up with bad people (LEX LUTHOR) to make this God bleed, make him break. Maybe his sense of morality will go out the window, because he wants to know who this God is, is he here to make a difference or is he a time bomb waiting to go off. He needs to know if he can go toe to toe, even if does get him killed, that’s just a great motivation. Till a greater foe comes in to take them both down, which I know will happen, either way fucking epic.
This trailer, which is just a tease, get’s in my eyes a 10 out of 10. It’s perfect! We are being given the first act of this film, I know it in my gut, the real storyline is still unknown, because in the end these two giants will make each other bleed, till they come back down to earth and see how much this world needs them both.
I can’t wait for this film, I can’t wait to see it. It looks awesome. This is my type of Batman and Superman team up I wanted. So that’s my review which felt like a breakdown I know, but it’s too epic not too.
And Batman’s voice EPIC!
