While Batman seems to be what all the attention goes to about this movie, it indeed will revolve around the growth of Superman and his first showdown with The Dark Knight .

First of all go ahead and take a look at this Trailer (or 200 replayed views) to get a feel for the film.

The Trailer opens on a statue of Superman. We hear the news media discussing Superman and his powers and his honourable credibility.

"Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the WORLD, should be a figure of controversy?"..."Were talking about a being who's very existence challenges our own sense of priority in the universe."

We see that Superman has now become a global figure, with crowds of people of a seemingly a different world culture surrounding him. The question is, out of hate or out of gratitude?

"Human beings have a horrible track record of following people with great power."

Superman seems to be struggling slightly to grasp a nuke. I'd like to bring up that in the Dark Knight Returns, Superman stopped a nuke and was damaged by it quite severely, after it exploded in his face.

Is this incident what will weaken Superman enough to give Batman a chance in battle?

"Absolute power corrupts, absolutely."..."The world has been so caught up in what he can do, that no one has asked what he SHOULD do."

But others embrace the arrival of the [Man of Steel](movie:15593) .

"We as a population on this planet have been looking for a savior."..."Maybe he's just a guy trying to do the right thing."

Superman now has a personal Swat Team? I doubt it, this is most likely just a Swat team supporting their Hero and bowing out of respect.

Though it seems Lex Luthor has manipulated the majority against Superman.

"We know better now, don't we. Devils don't come from Hell beneath us...

...No they come from the Sky."

"Go Home! Go Home! Go Home!"
"Go Home! Go Home! Go Home!"

The people of Metropolis don't seem to be too taken with the Man of Steel and frankly reject his presence on Earth. Similar to how the film 'Man Of Steel' split audiences down the middle. Half loved it and half hated it. Now we, the audience will be along side one of those two viewpoints. This movie will bring the audience into the loop.

"Tell me, do you bleed?...
"Tell me, do you bleed?...

Last but not least we see Superman hovering over an angry Batman questioning his strength.

...You will."
...You will."

Though that comment seems to only fuel Superman's anger, as he crashes to the ground in a controlled manner and ready's the fight that we will have to wait a year to see.
