A new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to debut during Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night. Lucky for us we got an intense 50-second preview on FOX during tonight’s fall finale of Gotham.
Superman is really pissed and Batman is bound in chains in this preview clip.
What do we see? “Desert Batman” is being held captive underground by the mysterious army of Superman worshippers (kneel before Kal-El) until the Man of Steel arrives. What happens next is pretty effective to raise the bar for the on screen antagonism between the two heroic DC Comics icons.
Should we assume that Batman, i.e. The World’s Greatest Detective, has his cowl lined with lead so Superman has to physically unmask him to reveal he’s up against Bruce Wayne?
This is certainly a great teaser to lead up to the new trailer’s debut Wednesday night on ABC!
Here is the official BvS synopsis:
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Scoot McNairy and Holly Hunter (Senator Finch).
