The new trailer to Batman vs Superman is here:
The teaser with "Superman cultists" is here:
Ok....I will say this now. I am only speaking from a DC perspective and will not relate this to anything Marvel.
this kids is how you do not make a movie trailer. We pretty much got the entire plot in a nutshell now. Bats and Supes will be enemies the first half maybe 3/4 of the movie while Lex is making Doomsday. Then second half or final quarter of the movie, Supes finds out Bats is Bruce Wayne. Bats and Supes realize they have to stop Doomsday and Lex. Wonder Woman shows up the last part of the movie based on the trailer and may even end the Deus Ex Machina on how to stop Doomsday for some weird reason.
When Clark Kent asked Bruce Wayne his opinion on Batman....it was written to the point that you would suspect Bruce Wayne is Batman! Then Lex just crashes the whole thing? I'm not going to be surprised if Diana is there as well having a drink with Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. It just feels like they are all there for the sake of the plot. Yeah I know they all have roles that would make sense for them to be at the party but...I don't know maybe its how the trailer introduced the three to each other.
Seriously that is supposed to be Lex Luthor? I am not bashing Eisenberg here, I'm bashing the way Lex Luthor is being written. Its like the drugs he was doing to grow hair screwed with his brain. He doesn't seem....sophisticated and proper like you expect. I like his argument for creating Doomsday and what he said to Lois but...the rest of his dialogue feels screwy.
Plus....I am really struggling with this next part here. Did Superman and Batman raise armies just so they could fight it out in the desert of all places? (That feels like they did it just for the sake of the U.S. current situation in the middle east.) Then after realizing an army wouldn't work they took the fight back to the city where Batman using what he learned about Superman create his Krypton Buster suit for a second fight?
Looks like Wonder Woman will show up the final battle against Doomsday based on Supes and Bats reactions to her. Kinda like how the Vision showed up at the end of Age of Ultron I suppose.
Now I do however have some positive things to say.
Really loving the fact Jeremy Freaking Irons is now Alfred that is a big plus from me.
I do like the fact they are keeping some aspect of the whole Superman vs Batman angle in check here. Superman doesn't want to fight Batman and makes it clear he is deliberately holding back.
I'm guessing the whole reason why Batman is wanting to fight is because he remembers what happened in Meteroplis against Zod and considers Superman extremely dangerous and one bad day away from doing something (Logical like Batman) Maybe the whole cult thing is what drives Batman to create those winged army guys to attack the cultist? Or did someone else make the flying bug guys?
Ugh maybe the point of this trailer is just to confuse people enough to make them go watch the movie to make sense of the trailer. >.<
