Batman-V-Superman-Supes

Drama! Justice League cameos! GRIMNESS! If there’s one thing that differentiates the current crop of DC movies from their Marvel counterparts, it’s that Warner Bros. is going for a serious route that portrays their characters as modern-day gods, with titanic problems. And that’s fine. Having a grimmer comic book movie can work in an age where some heroes pop onto the screen, shaking their hips to tunes from an awesome mix-tape.

But at the same time, you want these heroes to be cool. You want to feel the energy and excitement of watching a clearly-mental billionaire bruiser pit his Arkham Asylum control-scheme mech suit up against a properly pissed off Kryptonian extinction event. Intensity ratcheted up to 11! And that’s just what you get, in this final Batman V Superman trailer that finally remembers the giddy joy of a big budget film throwing the two biggest names in super heroics at each other:

AWWWWW YIIISSSSS SON. There’s not a whole lot of footage there, besides an opening scene where two dozen mercenaries are wondering why they can’t feel anything below their necks and a choppy bit of editing. While the actual film most likely won’t be slapped together like that, it’s still a fun trailr. Maybe DC is starting to rethink their approach, after seeing how much love they got for  the Bohemian Rhapsody lip-sync trailer of Suicide Squad.

But let’s just talk about that little slice of Batfleck there, how he manages to dismantle an entire army of armed goons. The previous Batman films used a martial art that was known as the Keysi Fighting Method, a realistic system that incorporates various martial arts techniques into a more fluid and instinctual ass-kicking technique.

There’s elements of that there in Batman V Superman, but with a bigger theatrical flourish that apparently includes RKOs outta nowhere, Aikido throws that Steven Seagal would kill for and the most brutal donkey punches known to man. That, and Batman is pressing Y to parry at long last when he faces SUperman. Oh man, it’s 2012 all over again for me. Except this time, I’m probably not going to walk out of the cinema with an air of apathy hanging over me.

UPDATE: A pair of punchtastic IMAX quad posters have now also been released for the movie.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Lardus-For the Chimichangas!

    Much, MUCH better trailer than that last one that gave away so much!!!!

  • Kervyn Cloete

    HOLY BROKEN NECK, BATMAN!!!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      At least he didn’t kill anyone, just paralysed him for life!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    ….. but….but… guys, c’mon! It’s still going to be the worst movie ever, right? I mean Zach Snyder, Superman killed someone & Ben Affleck. Right? I’M MELTINGGGGGGGGGGGGgggggggggggg

  • Glenn Runnalls

    This trailer gives me hope. Hope that the movie has some moments that make you want to cheer and lift the spirits. Not just dark and moody…..and hopefully leaves you wanting more. Something Man Of Steel did not do.

  • I just wet myself, again.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Still struggling with your drinking problem?

  • I called Afleck as being awesome when he was first announced while all the haters hated. Losers.
