Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) - Teaser Trailer

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice teaser trailer review

Dear Readers,

The teaser trailer for the upcoming action blockbuster has been released.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, 300), the movie stars Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.

Other superheroes include Cyborg (played by Ray Fisher), Aquaman (played by Jason Momoa) and The Flash (played by Ezra Miller).

Supporting cast includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.

The trailer focuses primarily on Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne/Batman. Having enjoyed Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, I was a bit skeptical.

I have to confess that Affleck's Batman looks impressive. His is a bulked up version, like the one found in The Dark Knight Returns series by Frank Miller. I have read reports that this movie might be inspired by Miller's popular work.

Ever since this movie was announced, I had pinned my hopes on Affleck's Batman to be the savior. Looks like I was not off the mark as Henry Cavill remains as bland and uninspired as he was in Man of Steel

I am curious to see the other four superheroes in action, especially Ezra Miller's Flash. He has the unenviable task of being compared with Grant Gustin who portrays the Scarlet Speedster on the wildly successful CW show The Flash.

Here's hoping that the movie will live up its hype as the first live action movie to feature both Superman and Batman.

  1. I have no enthusiasm for this whatsoever, I'm afraid. This whole 'dark and gritty' approach to superheroes has turned me off the DC movie universe entirely. Give me a fun Marvel flick any day, or the TV Flash which is brilliant.

    1. LOL. Looks like you have completely lost any possible interest in the DC Cinematic Universe.

      As a longtime DC Comics fan, I still have hopes for this movie mainly due to Ben Affleck's participation. His bulked up Batman is a sharp departure from the sleek version portrayed by Christian Bale. So far, I am liking his costume and voice. I would see this movie just to check out Affleck's portrayal of my favorite superhero.

      I agree about the CW show. I especially like the way they have handled Reverse- Flash.
