Zak Snyder and Warner Bros. have finally delivered the official Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as promised. And it’s a bit of an emotional roller coaster, IMHO.
Some of the footage is great, especially the new footage. There’s Clark & Bruce squaring off, the additional fight scenes, the Batwing in action and the addition of Wonder Woman. But I’m also finding some of it a little disappointing and underwhelming. In this department, we have Batman’s reaction to coming face to face with DoomsDay. While it appears that DoomsDay has Kryptonian powers, I still would expect more from Batman than just an exclamation of, “Oh Shit!” and then him covering his face as DoomsDay is about to attack. You’re the Batman for God’s sake! Surely he could have and should have had a better response available to him than that. And the final design for DoomsDay himself looks more like a cross between a Troll from The Lord of the Rings and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle than anything else.
Whew! Ok, I’m done now. But what I have learned over the years is that when it comes to trailers all is not what it seems and I shall remain optimistic because for the most part, it looks kick-ass!
