Earlier tonight the FULL trailer for the upcoming DC Comics/Warner Bros. film "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" leaked online and I was lucky enough to get my hands on it before they removed it. Im not sure if they have removed it yet or not. Either way, mine eyes have seen the glory. haha
With that being said, I would like to now warn all who are about to continue reading this that this could spoil some things for you. So if you are weird about keeping it as much a secret as DC has tried to do, then you should probably not read any further, but those of you who want every drop of spoiler that you can get, follow me into the rest of this amazing, photo-filled article. :)
Here is the trailer in all its glory
Without further nonsense, lets get to it.
In this opening shot, we begin hearing dialogue between government officials/concerned citizens, questioning the God-like reputation of our Man of Steel (Superman) and his motives.
2. Superman being worshipped
In this next frame we se our man of steel possibly being worshipped by these people which obviously gives him a great deal of discomfort. We see this by his facial expression.
3. Superman hasn't stopped saving the world since Man of Steel.
We see Henry Cavil here keeping what looks like some kind of tower/satellite from crashing into the ground. There is still lots of debris and smoke behind him so he didn't necessarily prevent as much as he salvaged this disaster behind him.
I can't quite make out what the emblem/wording on that thing he's holding is. If you do, comment below please! I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.
4. Superman Statue
This is another pan similar to the first one shedding a little more of light on the statue of Superman.
5. People are beginning to see Superman as a god.
We see our man of steel in this next from descending into some sort of pit or tunnel where he is met by soldiers who apparently bow down to him as if he is a god.
I get the feeling that Superman is definitely not okay with this.
6. Lex Luthor and his epic voice is finally revealed.
We then see a shot of what appears to be Lois Lane reaching up for Superman as he hovers in the sky. This is a very iconic thing to put it in the trailer, because during this shot Lex Luthor is giving one of his famous "I will convince the world that superman is evil" speeches.
His exact words were, "We know better than that. Don't we? Devils don't come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky."
Wow.....Just imagine this face saying those words. :O
7. False God
We are beginning to see that Superman isn't being held in high esteem for his past actions in Man of Steel. We see here someone or some group has painted "False God" on the statue that was built for Superman by his supporters.
We are beginning to see a reversal of what happens in The Dark Knight Returns where Batman is portrayed as the enemy. In this trailer, it appears that Superman is fitting that role quite well. I am sure that Lex Luthor has played or will play a key role in making that happen. Seeing as it is basically his life goal to ruin Superman.
8. Bruce Wayne
Here we have our first and clearest up close shot of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. It then goes out of focus because the guy who captured this is an idiot. :/
9. The Batsuit
The new Bat suit looks incredible. I can't even begin.
10. The Batmobile!
The Batmobile is looking pretty darn good as its rolling through explosions.
11. The Temple
I am honestly a little confused about this part of the trailer so I would love to hear your opinion on what/where you think this might be. I do think that we can safely say that we are looking at Batman in some sort of temple or old government building here. Maybe it has something to do with Wonder Woman or Aquaman. I am just unsure, but I would like to imagine that its some kind of Temple of the Gods.
(I know how silly that sounds.)
A guy can dream right?
I do believe that this might be the Batjet. :)
13. The Dark Knight in the flesh
This is a dark and hardly seeable picture of Ben Affleck as Batman. It is still pretty awesome though!
14. Defender of Gotham City
Here we see the caped crusader staring out over the city of Gotham while his cape flaps in the wind majestically. I imagine that in this seen, Bruce is reflecting and counting what its going to cost him to kick Superman butt.
15. Bat Armor
In this shot we see Ben Affleck in his armor confronting/addressing Superman before the big battle. This is amazing to finally see Frank Millers masterpiece Bat armor come to life on screen. My mind is blown by simply just looking at it. below are more pictures of this epic confrontation.
Superman from Batmans view
Batman from Supermans view
Another shot of the Bat Armor as we see Superman drop to the ground and meet Batman toe to toe. Mano Y Mano.
17. The Logo
It then fades out to the logo with lots of epic music.
My mind is destroyed by the awesomeness of this trailer.
Full Dialogue From The Trailer
People: Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?
People: We as a population on this planet have been looking for a savior.
People: We are talking about a being who's very existence challenges our own sense of priority in the universe.
People: Human beings have a horrible track record of following people with great power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Chaos.
People: Maybe he is just a guy trying to do the right thing.
Lex Luthor: We know better than that. Don't we? Devils don't come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky.
Government Official: The world has been so caught up in what he can do, that no one has asked what he should do.
People: CHANTING "No More" ??????? (Unsure of this one)
Alfred Pennyworth: Thats how it starts. A fever. A rage. The feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel.
Batman: Tell me. Do you bleed? ...... You will.
Please tell me your thoughts down below! Is there anything that I missed?
Thanks and enjoy........my fellow Bat Nerds.
