'Batman V. Superman' Trailer Leaks & The Internet Goes Bonkers Over The Upcoming 'Dawn Of Justice' Film
Never forget: The Internet always gets what it wants. Late Thursday night, the Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer leaked on YouTube and pretty much the entire Twitterverse lost its shit over the highly anticipated film. The trailer was set to premiere in IMAX theaters on April 20, but someone (thank you?) secretly recorded a Portuguese version of the trailer and posted it online. The original leaked video has since been taken down from YouTube but not before copies made their way to other sites.
The trailer doesn't give away much of the movie's plot but instead overlays a series of voices with quick glimpses of Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. As these shots play out in front of our eyes, we hear philosophical musings over Superman — is he a man of good or a being of evil?
Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?We as a population on this planet have been looking for a savior.We're talking about a being whose very existence challenges our own sense of priority in the universe.Human beings have a horrible track record of following people with great power.Power corrupts.Maybe he's just a guy who's trying to do the right thing.Devils don't come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky.The world has been so caught up with what he can do, no one has asked what he should do.
Though the plot appears to be about how to handle Superman's presence in a human world, the trailer focuses much more on "Batfleck." The Batmobile looks slightly sleeker, yet similar to the roaring behemoth in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. The Batsuit has a more armor-plated feel to it, which honestly is a suitable choice considering he's going toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel. The trailer ends with Batman's glowing eyes looking up into sky where a shadowy Superman hovers. Batman's husky voice eerily asks, "Tell me, do you bleed? You will."
There's nothing more I hate than a trailer that gives away the entire movie, but the leaked Batman V. Superman video has just the right build-up for the epic showdown between two DC greats. I. Am. Stoked. Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is set to hit theaters March 25, 2016. Check out the leaked trailer below.
