This trailer is basically a Marketing team gone wild trying to overshadow the Civil War teaser. I also strongly disliked the BvS teaser released a few days ago, and I could not imagine why anyone was a fan of it as it was clearly a dream sequence and trying to build false expectations. This trailer should have been given a lot more effort. The original teaser was so much better than either of these.

All of my caution related to Civil War has now been very much abated. (Learning that it actually does deal with superhero registration was the main reason, though).

Civil war seems like a smaller but better movie than ultron BvS etc. BvS comes across as big but as worse. But all we have are these trailers. They could all be good

He is Lex Luther (Jr.), but he is acting like the Riddler.

I like his acting.

At first glance, I was wondering: Why does Mark Zurckerburg become a blonde?

Well it's supposed to be a wig, right? Isn't Lex Luthor supposed to be bald and wear wigs all the time?

Sidenote: How does Clark Kent, a respected reporter at the biggest newspaper in Metropolis not know who Bruce Wayne is? Even if he's been hiding under a rock -- it is a red carpet event, so any reporter would at least take a peek at the guest list as part of their reserach.

It is a wig. And it might be a wig in the movie. He probably has a bald head. The hair is either a wig for normal reasons, or his work in BvS makes him go bald. And psycho.

It also looks like Luthor created Doomsday out of Zod's body in a Frankenstein homage. Lame.

I agree, but I still don't think that it was a bad trailer, it just showed too much. I really liked the banter between Bruce and Kent, as we haven't seen that approach to Batman movies before. And despite people hating on Eisenberg, I like the chattery footage that they have shown so far. I am sure that it is just a hidden identity of his, as other have already stated. Plus, I highly doubt that an actor as skilled as Eisenberg is gonna drop the ball when given the chance to play one of the best villains ever.

Yeah, but I like it. People don't realize that Superman is kind of tough for screen writers because he is basically a god meddling in our mortal lives. So, having Kent being fallible every once in a while makes the overall character more interesting IMO.

Batman doesn't kill his enemies. They simply die from their injuries sustained while coincidentally fighting Batman.

I still can't stand this is a direct sequel to Man of steel. But whatever

So Doomsday is a one note character. Well his character is known for one thing. Just like Bane is known for breaking batman's back. Doomsday is known for know killing superman. So it's total waste of his character if he doesn't kill superman. Soooo..? They could just used Zombie Zod and referred him as such


Batman fights Superman numerous times. Not a problem but he usually has kryptonite on him because....duh. So just going in with a metal suit and anger seems foolish on Batmans part unless they make up some shit. (Oh look the metal suit is as strong as Superman because why not)


Jesses what's his face doesn't bother me. His cheesy lines might.

They did an IGN rewind on the trailer, which showed Supes catching what he thought was a bullet, but appears to be a ball of kryptonite, hence the ability to block his punch. The suit I think is more so he doesn't get knocked the fuck out immediately.

The suit is exactly that. Give him time to get the kryptonite working.

Man of Steel was amazing. And the fact that they can use the fallout to lead into the conflict between them is awesome!

I thought the armored suit was kind of silly on Batman's part too if it came to just a one on one fight, so maybe he is wearing it for some other reason? Superman would be able to rip/laser eye through that armor in a nanosecond if he wanted to so ultimately it would just end up slowing Batman down. Maybe Batman somehow incorporated kryptonite into the suit so that Superman couldn't just laser him from a distance or something. Or maybe it's because he was expecting various goons to be taking shots at him earlier on so he wanted to be a little bit more "bullet proof".

He knows superman won't kill him. So he wouldn't use his eye laser things. It's so he can take a hit and not get obliterated.

Any chance that he mixes some kryptonite in with the suit? (obvious non-comic book follower question...but they always change shit in movies)

Yeah so batman in the comics always has kryptonite on him (red kryptonite really). So yeah he can have it in his suit. I just want to know how in the movies does he gets it. Actually It doesn't even matter because according to the trailer Doomsday shows up and they stop fighting and Doomsday doesn't need kryptonite to kill Superman.

Kryptonite is known to weaken superman in advance well before he fights batman. And this is a direct sequel to man of steel. Where the hell does he get the unknown kryptonite from ? This movie is doing a lot. God bless it.

^ you could probably pick up everything you need to know from Man of Steel from the BvS trailer (Superman and Zod fight in Metropolis, destroy half the city, people die, Bruce/Lex/Holly Hunter hold Superman responsible, and Lex has Zod's body)

Man of Steel is barely a Superman movie, so if that's your argument for not watching it, you don't need to worry about it

I saw this last night.

I was concerned through the first and second acts. But something kicks off the third act and it all comes together.

That's all to say, be patient and pay attention.

I'd say good to great.

I can see where some folk will love it. It just took a bit too long to click for me.

I'm going again on Thursday and hope that now that I know the direction, I'll enjoy the first and second acts much more.

Zach Snyder just doesn't make great movies. He does mood and atmosphere. He does special effects. He does costumes. But he leans on all of that stuff way too much. If you're looking for a visionary type to bring the DCU together, just not the guy I'd envision going after.

I read one review that described the movie as "not fun." I think that's accurate.

Marvel does a fine job making fun movies, or movies with fun moments; it's obvious that DC isn't interested in that.

DC is trying to create an extended movie universe like Marvel, but instead of starting with the proper tie-in movies building up to a larger movie (i.e. IM, Hulk, CA, Thor), they immediately jumped into their equivalent of The Avengers. Except this is more like Avengers 2 (which I did not really care for) where they shove way too much into the movie. . . except its also not fun.

Zach Synder just isnt a good story teller.

^^They tried, but the Superman movie kinda fell flat, whereas the first real Marvel movie, IM, went gangbusters at the theater. I realize you could include Hulk, but I don't. I seriously doubt Wonder Woman could bring in enough people for a solo movie. There are already too many Batman movies to try to tie in to this particular DC universe. So who does that leave?

^Yeah although the Dark Knight movies were great they kind of flooded things with Batman solo movies for a while. We've seen Batman's origin a thousand times on screen so another one is just not necessary.

I think the Flash would work as a great solo movie but he isn't nearly as recognized as Batman and Superman. If Green Lantern had been a success, they prob would have kept that franchise going with its cast, but, yeah, it sucked. I think they have the right idea with Suicide Squad though, since its primary cast is fairly unknown to the casual moviegoer.

I think Flash would work now because the CW series has been such a big hit. But when WB was mapping out the DCU, I don't know that they knew Flash would become such a popular character.

After thinking on this movie for a few days, I still stand by my remarks. It was a good movie that could have been great if it had a bit more levity.

The screenwriter, Chris Terrio, has gone on record to say that Justice League will be "will be tonally not quite as dark" as BvS. Suicide Squad looks like it's going to be a blast; and after seeing her in BvS, I'm stoked about Wonder Woman. So the future is bright IMO.
