Last week, Star Wars fans went completely haywire with the news that the [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](movie:711158) trailer would hit online before Avengers: Age of Ultron release date, and would be attached to show before the film in theater release. Earlier this week, the newest Ant-Man trailer hit online, and is indeed attached to premiere before the film as well. Now, it seems, we have at least one more major film to debut its trailer along with the film predicted to make the biggest box office in history.
According to Umberto Gonzalez of Latino Review, [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) will release a clip of 5 seconds of reel online to advertise its first trailer available for view at select theaters on April 20th, and then to be attached to the run of trailers alongside Ant-Man and Star Wars VII before the film begins upon theater release day.
While at first thought this seems rather strange, upon further inspection it's actually rather clever. With Avengers: Age of Ultron releasing overseas starting on April 22nd, it would be ideal to have any trailers available to the domestic box office to avoid massive leaks. The few-second-long trailer will supposedly leak only an hour before The Force Awakens panel at the Star War Celebration, likely an attempt to dominate social media for better coverage and not be swallowed up by the Star Wars hype.
If this all is true, there may be absolutely nobody on the planet that doesn't have a good reason to go see the premiere of [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) on May 1st, get your tickets today!
