The real Batman v Superman trailer is here, and it's still awful

New, 394 comments

The upcoming first trailer for Batman v Superman has leaked, and it's bad. How bad? Watch for yourself.

This stands in stark contrast to the rapturous reaction to the Star Wars trailer today, a trailer that did a remarkable job of selling an adventure, something that's both thrilling and fun to watch.

There's nothing wrong with doing a dark take on a superhero, but it's been done to death, and this trailer almost seems like it's a satirical take on the dour colors and overwhelming gloom of DC's movies.

We're given no real characterization on Batman, and Zack Snyder's take on Superman doesn't do enough to paint a new picture of the character while ignoring everything that's made the classic take on the Man of Steel so iconic.

Watch this now; it's likely this is going to be taken down very quickly. I'm going to leave with you with the Star Wars trailer as a palate cleanser.
