In the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer we hear the words “Tell me, do you bleed?” Then after long pause we hear, “You will” in a dark husky voice and we are left to assume that it’s Batman asking Superman that question.
The official trailer was strong-armed into release as a bad quality version was leaked onto the web, getting significant attention. The director, Zack Snyder, was first to tweet the official trailer telling fans it was “not blurry” and “not pirated” to quell the leaked-versions viral mania.

In the opening seconds we hear a media onslaught of talking heads judging whether we can trust an alien of godlike power that helped wreck downtown Metropolis.
The voices belong to those of Charlie Rose and Neil DeGrasse Tyson, sprinkled in with characters like Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. The Den of Geek review asks us to consider.
“The idea of a population being turned against Superman via the media has been explored in several stories, and sometimes there are outside influences at work. How outside? Like, offworld.”
The voice-over goes on to say that the world has been looking for a savior and that humans have always followed powerful men. The Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is darkly lit, it feels dark and leaves us thinking the movie will be dark with lines like:
“A fever of rage, a feeling of powerlessness that turns good men cruel.”
The trailer is dripping with innuendo of who is the actual super “hero,” and fans can look forward to a full length version later in the year, preparing the world for the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in 2016.
This Batman vs. Superman storyline poses the question of where the movie will be set as these two superheroes don’t live in the same town, as Batman patrols Gotham, while Superman calls Metropolis home. The Den Of Geek website goes on to explain the film’s settings.
“It’s worth paying close attention to how Metropolis appears a little more fantastical, and unlike the Toronto and Chicago skylines in Man Of Steel.”
Then Bruce Wayne makes an appearance on our screen, as a silver-foxed Ben Affleck, who is a little bit grumpy to say the least. Bruce appears to be looking at his Batsuit. Or perhaps, he is actually staring at the much-rumored tattered Robin costume adorned in his Batcave shrine?
The Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer will keep the fans guessing until the next leak goes viral. Super fans can only hope it’s a spin and both Batman and Superman come out righteous because quite frankly, if they don’t, it’s messing with DC Comics’ mojo.
