The Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer Finally Gets Official Release
I was waiting for this all day: the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer has finally, officially been released by DC Comics and Warner Bros. I watched the crappy leaked trailer last night, like everybody else, but I didn’t want to post the crappy version. I knew the big wigs would eventually relent and release the full trailer. It was only a matter of time – though I wish they’d done it much earlier in the day. But nonetheless, check out the full, official, quality trailer.
Seriously, wow, this is a grim movie trailer. And I don’t think I like it – though I definitely like the HD version better than the crappy cell phone version that leaked the other night. Clarity does make for a better movie trailer.
And by all means, if you love the trailer, more power to you. I’m not saying it can’t be loved, but so far, it’s just not for me. It’s dark, joyless and exactly the sort of ‘extreme’ that I was afraid might happen. I didn’t like Man of Steel, and not because Superman was out of character or because of the wanton destruction. I didn’t care about that. I didn’t like Man of Steel because it was a poorly made movie. But I kept my hopes up for Batman v. Superman. Heck, I still kind of have my hopes up. You better believe I’m going to see it opening night. And Batman looks pretty damn awesome in this HD trailer.
But after the utter joyful euphoria of the Age of Ultron and Ant-Man trailers, after the glee of The Force Awakens trailer, this Batman v. Superman movie could stand to lighten up a little bit.
