(Warning: This article contains spoilers for the third 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' trailer. Read at your own risk.)
Less than half a year away, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is on it's way. The movie that is making history by being the first live-action film to combine two of the biggest superheroes of all time, Batman and Superman. A movie that will also include other heroes, such as Wonder Woman and possibly the Flash and Aqua Man, but more importantly officially kick off the DC cinematic universe (I know Man of Steel, but this is the first with more than one hero). A universe that is arriving late to the superhero movie genre, with Marvel having a full plate to contend with; so this movie will have to succeed to get DC started off.
Here's the trailer in case you haven't already checked it out:
We have already seen two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers, leaving some major questions, the biggest being whether or not Doomsday will make an appearance in the movie. The most recent trailer answered many of those questions, but also left us with a few more. So without further ado, here are the 4 biggest questions that the latest Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer left us with:
4) What's Wonder Woman's Story?
Arguably the biggest part of the recent trailer (besides the appearance of Doomsday) was when Wonder Woman makes here appearance just as Doomsday makes his. But why is she there? Where does she come from? And why is she siding with Batman and Superman?
All these were questions that loomed our minds as we were watching the trailer. The trailer shows Diana taking her side with Batman and Superman, as the mighty Doomsday tries to make waste of the unfortunate city. But that brings back the question. Why? Let's hope we get some answers soon.
3) What Role Does Lex Play In The Battle Between Batman and Superman?
In the trailer, it is pretty obvious that Lex Luthor knows the identities of Batman and Superman. He walks up to Bruce and Clark, and beings to converse with the two. The conversation goes:
Lex: Boys, Bruce Wayne meets Clark Kent. Hah, I love it. I love bringing people together. How are we. Hi, hello, Lex, it is a pleasure. Wowwww, that is a good grip (speaking to Clark), you should not pick a fight with this person (speaking to Bruce).
If you ask me, that is pretty clear evidence that Lex does indeed know that Bruce is Batman, and Clark is Superman. Which would definitely point to Lex being one of the reasons that Bats and Supes fight. How does he influence them is a completely different question, that wasn't answered. But we're hoping it's answered sooner than later.
2) Is There Too Much Going On?
This question may be based an opinion, but is still a very important one. Is there too much going on in the movie? You have Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, AND Doomsday. That's a lot. And those are only the ones that appeared in the trailer. We also possibly have a rumored Flash and Aqua Man. Also remember that this is only the second movie in the DC cinematic universe. WOOOOWWWWWW, that's a lot. But is it too much?
1) Why Does Doomsday Look Like A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?
If you have watched the trailer, this is probably what you have been thinking all along. Why does Doomsday look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle? Okay, so maybe not that exactly, but I bet you were at least wondering why he looked the way that he does.
This new Batman v Superman Doomsday may be a little disappointing for some people, as we're a little more familiar with the more spiky and rough version of Doomsday. More like this:
Is this fan-made version what Doomsday should look like? Is it what he will evolve to later on as the movie progresses? I personally think that as the movie goes on, Doomsday will gain the extra spikes, and gain a more "comic book" Doomsday look. After all, the spikes are used as defense mechanisms, so it is plausible that the spikes could evolve over the course of the movie. Do we really know though? No, we'll just have to wait to find the real answer, but hopefully not too long.
