Well, guys, this is what we've all been waiting for. The "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" Comic-Con trailer dropped today, and it's 3 minutes and 40 seconds of non-stop amazingness! I have taken the liberty of making a slide-by-slide breakdown of the trailer, so check it out and feel free to analyze it in the comments below! It's kind of a lot, but I wanted to catch all of the action! Let me know what you think!
SENATOR: "Today is a day for truth. The world needs to know what happened and to know what he stands for. That kind of power is very dangerous."
This is the clearest shot we've got so far of the anti-Superman rally, giving us a clear view of the protest and their arguments against the Boy in Blue.
"Tell us the truth about aliens."
"When invasion becomes reality, revolt becomes duty."
"Superman = Illegal Alien"
"This is our world, not yours."
"Aliens doom nations."
"Earth belongs to humans."
"God hates aliens."
Nevertheless, there seem to be a few pro-Man of Steel signs out there...
"You can't be Christian and [not visible]"
"Hope saves lives."
"Share the planet."
Looks like Bruce Wayne was present during the Superman-Zod fight in Man of Steel, and he saw Superman cut right through his building...YOUCH.
"Did you see that?! That alien guy just cut right through my building! Oh boy, that is definitely coming out of his paycheck!"
"Pssh, Pa Kent might not have dealt well with harsh winds, but he's not Batman. Batman gets to run headlong into flying debris and not get phased a single bit. You wanna know why? Because he's Batman. Because I am Batman."
It might just be me, but I think Bruce is already thinking about how he's going to take down the Man of Steel...he's looking to the sky with utter hatred.
SENATOR: "Let the records show that this committee holds him responsible."
This isn't the same Wayne Manor that we've seen in other pictures, so I don't know what this place is supposed to be. It COULD be a different Wayne estate, merely burnt down, but I'm not sure. Maybe this is the same building where we saw Batman standing in with his kryptonite gun back in that teaser released a few months ago? Who knows.
Oh heck yeah! Our first look at the Batcave. If you look in the far right, you get your first glimpse of Robin's suit, which we will talk about later on. And may I say that this Batcave is NICEEEEE! Like...this would be nice for a house, much more for an underground cavern that a total of probably ten or less people are ever going to visit in their lives. Bruce Wayne has got some dinero, my friends. This is a nice cave.
ALFRED: "That's how it starts - the fever, the rage - that turns good men... cruel."
I'm trying to figure out what this message means. Did Bruce Wayne have a family in Metropolis? A family that was killed in the battle? Was that girl he was hugging earlier his daughter? Is this message even aimed towards Bruce, and if so, why does someone put the blame on him? There's so many questions, yet so few answers!
Whatever the case be, Bruce isn't happy about it.
Before he was Batman, Bruce Wayne was interested in competing in the Cross Fit games.
And here it is...the smolder. *Millions of females gasp."
ALFRED! Oh heck yeah.
Looks like the cops are in pursuit of someone, presumably Batman.
Yup. Definitely Batman.
UNKNOWN: "This Bat vigilante...it's like a one man reign of terror."
See that scar on the dude's left pec (the one on our right)? Yeah... Batman BRANDS the bad guys! How legit is that? If I was a bad guy, after I got out of jail I'd be showing everybody my scar and bragging like, "Yeah, I got caught by the Bat."
PERRY: "You get to decide what the right thing is. Nobody cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman."
"Perry...don't talk to me in that tone. Maybe people DO care about Clark Kent taking on Batman. Jeesh, way to shoot me down. Superman isn't the ONLY person people care about..."
I just want to make a comment on the new details added to the suit. Is that Kryptonian script along the middle of the "S" now? Whatever it is, I like it. I like it alot.
LOIS: "This means something. It's all some people have...it's all that gives them hope."
Callback to the original "s" logo from the 40s and 50s, eh?
MA KENT: "People hate what they don't understand. Be their hero, Clark. Be their angel, be their monument. Be anything they need you to be...or be none of it. You don't owe this world a thing. You never did."
*crosses fingers* Please be Hank Henshaw, please be Hank Henshaw...
PLEASE BE HANK HENSHAW.
LEX: "Do you know the oldest lie in America, Senator? Devils don't come from hell beneath us...they come from the sky."
"Your breath smells bad, Luthor."
Aww, look, Zod's sleeping!
This is our first real good look at the Robin suit, and it's awesome! It's right next to the Batsuit, and by the direction that the stairs descend from above, it looks like Bruce can't get to the Batsuit without passing this monument to his fallen sidekick. To me, this says two things: 1) he wants to honor his fallen friend, and 2) he wants to remind himself of his greatest mistake or regret each and every time he puts on his Batsuit. Pretty intense.
But I have a question...what is that weapon that Robin is carrying?
BRUCE: "Twenty years in Gotham...how many good guys are left? How many stayed that way? He has the power to wipe out the entire human race."
Miss Gal Gadot, making her first appearance...
Hey, looks like Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne will meet at some point! Possibly for an interview? (Hmm...sounds a lot like a previous article I wrote...)
BRUCE: "I may have to destroy him." <--???
I'm trying to figure out what this is...maybe this is some kid who goes swimming and finds kryptonite? Or perhaps a flashback? I don't know.
BATMAN V. SUPERMAN V. THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
Hahaha I kid, I kid. Perhaps these people are heading to Wonder Woman's home? Themyscira?
"Hi, my name is Joe Chill, and I'm the reason Bruce Wayne will become Batman."
"But...Bruce Wayne doesn't need to become Batman!"
"Yes, I do, Dad! Shut up!"
Looks like we have the Wayne family funeral... who is that with their arm around Bruce up at the front? I can't tell whether it's Alfred or not.
Homeboy is definitely looking at her butt. I'm just saying.
She caught him looking at her butt, so she went and changed into her Wonder Woman outfit real quick.
If this is a result of those bracelets, I have GOT to get me some of those...
Gotham by Gaslight, anyone?
ALFRED: "You're going to go to war."
Marvel has Captain America, but DC has their own version of a "Super-Soldier"... *ba dum chhhh*
ALFRED: "He is not our enemy!"
Looks like Alfred is taking Superman's side here.
...Or maybe he's just looking out for Bruce and doesn't want Bruce to recklessly hurt or even kill himself.
Based on those shoes, I'm assuming that's Lex walking. Are they in a hospital?
Lex looking at kryptonite is like me walking past a Cinnabon store.
LEX: "Black and blue...god versus man...day versus night..."
This is really starting to remind me of Injustice, I don't know about y'all. First with the new suit, then the super-soldiers, the way they're treating Superman like a tyrant, the way Batman and Wonder Woman seem to be taking him on, and now these angry eyes?! Yep, I'm feeling Injustice.
I'm pretty sure this is straight out of The Dark Knight Returns right here.
I guess the whole "goes downhill from the first kiss" thing really DID only apply when you were kissing a human, eh? Huh, who knew?
LEX: "The red capes are coming...the red capes are coming."
"Let me just rip the roof off of your Batmobile for you. With all those rippling muscles of yours, I'm sure you could use some air."
