So are teasers just trailers that leave you more puzzled than when you started? Yes Tim, yes they are. About time they showed something. Wait, no still 11 months away. Why are they showing this? In no way am I complaining this was a very welcomed treat. My excitement for this film has ticked up which is impressive because I was already frothing from the mouth with excitement (Maybe a little rabies). The film is clearly influenced by the events of Man of steel and I want to see how this will be weaved into The Dark Knight Returns story that is clearly the basis for this films plot. Loved the clippings of voices describing the differing viewpoints of this “hero”. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“That’s how it starts. The fever, the rage…the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel”
My Score: A (Teasers don’t get A+) Damn Tease!
Release date: 25th March 2016
Plot is still being written. So I’ll guess themes.
- Batman’s too old for this shit.
- Superman goes full Arnold Schwarzenegger and gets addicted to snapping peoples necks.
- Wonder woman is perceived somehow as both sexist and feminist.
- Zack Snyder goes colour blind.
What I liked
#6. Love/Hate Relationship
The world of DC’s cinematic universe is as divided in opinion as the real world. If there is one person who loves with a passion there will be another person who hates with a passion. Superman will be loved by those he saved from Zod and hated by those who suffered because he brought Zod to Earth. I cannot wait to see how this all plays out for Superman.
#5. Batman’s Armoured Suit
If you have read the Dark Knight Returns comic or seen the animated film then you know how close to the material this suit looks. Bulky metal, war torn and those eyes! Note sure about that voice but who knows, I’ll judge it when I see it.
#4. Superman’s Bright New Suit
Wow they really did brighten that suit up. Was hard to tell from the first picture released of Superman because it was set in Gotham, a city where it is perpetually raining (Much like every city in the UK).
#3. The Fever, The Rage
First off great cowl, best we’ve ever had. Well actually it will be if he can turn his head. But I believe the best part of this scene is the quote from Alfred. “That’s how it starts. The fever, the rage…the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel”. The real question is who he is referring to. Batman? The people in general or Lex luthor?
#2. That’s Not The Batman V Superman Fight
At first this looks to be the aftermath of the epic battle between Superman and Batman but its clearly not that battle. The colour scheme, the suit batman is wearing, the buildings and climate look nothing like the battle site shown. So where and what is this scene? Look again at the Wonder Woman picture they released. Looks pretty similar doesn’t it. I think this is some kind of scene from the end of the film. Setting up Justice League.
#1. The Fight Begins!
And the fight we have all been waiting for. It begins here. We have no idea why, who started it, what the result will be and how it will affect the future of the DC cinematic universe but I don’t care I just want to see it! Let the greatest superhero show down BEGIN!!!!
What I Didn’t Like
#1. What is this Scene?
This is the skull scene from the man of steel trailer. It makes no sense out of context. Got some theories but honestly don’t have a clue what this is. I thought they maybe robot guards of his new fortress of solitude but why do they have guns? Government Superman Corps? Out of context it’s a real head scratcher.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
