‘Batman v Superman’ Trailer Released After Leaking Online

The official “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer has been released after leaking online days before its premiere.

Director Zack Snyder tweeted the video on Friday with the hashtag “not pirated.”

The leaked version appeared to be shot on a phone camera and featured Portuguese subtitles. The official debut of the trailer was planned as an Imax special event set for Monday, April 20, at select Imax locations, and Snyder tweeted that those screenings would go ahead as planned, featuring “a few extra shots plus a little swag.”

The full trailer offered fans a proper glimpse at Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight coming face to face with Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, with Batman ominously asking, “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”

The footage also features shots of the Batmobile in action, along with voiceovers from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and Holly Hunter’s mystery character as they weigh in on whether Superman can be trusted or whether “power corrupts.”

“Dawn of Justice” also stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent), and will feature the bigscreen debut of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman ahead of the characters’ standalone films, as well as two planned “Justice League” films, which will bring all of DC Comics’ most iconic heroes together. Other Justice League solo movies already planned include “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller; “Shazam,” with Dwayne Johnson appearing as antagonist Black Adam; and “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher.

Snyder directed “Batman v Superman” from Chris Terrio’s script, based on a story by Snyder and David S. Goyer.

  2. Whoever has blood in them has sin in them. Sin should not be in the soul.

    What crap. American’s decline is evident when Hollywood jerks off to more DC Comics. Can’t that town produce new ideas??

  4. JOE S HILL says:

    Okay,it’s an interesting movie trailor,and the audience got its peek! but the question still remains,will “BATMAN Vs SUPERMAN” be much of an impact-and a success? at least one good thing here,is that i’m impressed with Ben Affleck’s costume,because the Batman cowl looks the way,its supposed to look,as to
    the previous versions that Christian Bale played,in the past three movies. obiviously,Zach Synder wants this movie to be like Frank Miller’s 1986 “THE DARK KNIGHT” comicbook series,and that’s nice-but can this movie still be able to put a dent at the Box Office,where Marvel has been a current dominator? because when “THE AVENGERS:AGE OF ULTRON” gets released in two more weeks,this film is expected to make a HUGE impact,and dollars,like the 2012 movie did-and that’s a BIG order,where Synder’s movie is concerned,and i sure hope for Warner Bros.’ sake,that this movie doesn’t bomb-especially with the questionable casting of Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman”,because i’m still not sold or impressed by the way he looks,other then what he looks like-Jason Momoa! i also hope that this movie will NOT be a repeat of Zack Synder’s “WATCHMEN”,although i now understand most of it today,,but in its 2009 release,it put me to sleep! sure hope this movie will be worth the trouble,especially since many of you out there,loathed the idea of Ben Affleck’s casting! in any case,we’ll see how the “World’s Finest”
    team-up is played-out,and how it’ll lead to the formation of the Justice League,THAT should prove to be very interesting-but it still depends on how well this movie will do,,that’s the real challenge!

  5. Alexei says:

    It looks heavy-handed. Very Dark Knight-ish. I think the bloated Batman suit looks silly.

  6. So who is the bad guy in this one?

  7. Mitch says:

    DEFINITELY not an Affleck fan. Neither trailer was all that great.

  8. Anon says:

    Looks/sounds stupid.

  9. Emeka Ogba says:

    Batman is things of children which anyone will love to watch, but for superman is thesame thing all together, as for i prefer batman, it mean natural understandble to anybody in the street,

  10. IT 2 IT says:

    KEEP lining up for those franchise slum ‘CALM–ICKS’.

    And start getting ready to line up for- – – –‘YOU—-GEN- – –NIX!’

  11. Jeff says:

    This movie looks and will be awesome. But honestly, Superman could decimate Batman in 10 seconds. He can lift up half of a crumbling steel oil rig at sea. A man in amour with gadgets will not pose much of a threat to him. And, besides, why would Batman want to do him any harm anyway. Logic issues from the start. But, I can’t wait to see this FU**ING movie!!!

  12. rhr says:

    that’s the difference between Thor and Superman, one is realistic, and the other is a joke, hotness can only take you so far…

  13. Sara says:

    I loved Amy Adams in Enchanted and the Julia movie but she is Horrible, Terrible, ALL WRONG for Lois Lane. Talk about instant piercing of the narrative veil. She ruined Man of Steel and will ruin this one too.

  14. Frank Miller says:

    Did Eisenberg get vocal training from Cumberbatch? His voice sounds almost exactly like Cumberbatch’s Khan. It’s cool, I was just thrown.

  15. Jenna says:

    Seriously underwhelmed. This looks dark, sombre, like it takes itself way too seriously. Meh

  16. nerdrage says:

    Wow, I’m not a DC fan, but it seems like they’re really messing with what Superman (and Batman) are all about. However, I dislike Henry Cavill as Superman so maybe I’ll go see this just to root for Batfleck to kick his ass all the way back to the smoking ruins of Krypton. Glad to hear the Batwhisper is still a thing.

  17. Donna says:

    It looks amazing

  18. Looks very dark, depressing and political – just in time for the 2016 election? Not crazy about the idea of Affleck as Batman and didn’t like Cavill as Superman in the last film. It’s a long way to next summer… we’ll see.

  19. Chelsea says:

    Can the wait be over already, I cant wait any longer.

  20. GKN says:

    Thanks, Zack. This looks much better.

  21. M says:

    Snyder is a masterful visualist, no one can argue that. And the premise is fascinating. Let’s just hope he put as much muscle into the script this time.

    • Stephen says:

      No chance. Multiple writers means WB was rushing and we know they started production without a finished script, which is never a good sign.

      • John says:

        This movie only had two script writers though, Goyer, who did mostly the plot and overall story, and Oscar winner Chris terrio who did the final draft and most of the dialogue.
