‘Batman v Superman’ International Trailer Offers New Footage

The latest “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer offers glimpses at new footage from the film two weeks before its release.

Many of the scenes featured in the international trailer have appeared in previous looks at the superhero movie — Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor talks about “the greatest gladiator match in the history of the world” as the titular heroes mean mug each other in unfavorable weather — but the teaser also includes a few new scenes.

One shows Ben Affleck’s Batman approaching a desert fortress. It’s been rumored that the movie will include an appearance from one of the biggest bads in the DC universe, Darkseid, and the desert scene in the trailer looks an awful lot like the villain’s home Apokolips. Another scene includes Batman receiving a newspaper clipping with the words “you let your family die” scribbled in red ink. The Joker, played by Jared Leto, will debut later this year in “Suicide Squad,” but it seems the Clown Prince of Crime will still be toying with the Dark Knight in “Batman v Superman.”

Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, also gets a bit of new footage. One shot shows the Amazonian walking down a hallway in black leather.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” hits theaters on March 25.

  1. So… does this set up Darkseid against the full fledged Justice League? How will the boom tube be opened? Could Mother Box be introduced as a Ghost in the Machine type of thing or will they use Manheim and Intergang? And will we get help from Orion and, ultimately, New Genesis?

    Get ready for it… you could make Apokolips be Planet X!

    It’s not apokolips we’ve seen superman have batman imprisioned there in a previous trailer, however in that one we did catch a shot of something that looks very close to darkseids minions (forget their names) and if they go by comics they’ll probably appear as a brief teaser to justice league, a random portal will open. Also if it was apokolips it would be in space and covered in lava and black rocks.

    • Everything is in space. I hear what you’re saying, though, like a Death Star devoid of atmosphere. That is clearly Apokolips, with the deep furnaces producing those massive volcanic towers at regular, triangular intervals. It fills the definition while bridging the gap from comic page to reality. A possibility is that it could be a vision or dream of what could become of Earth / it gets the Apokolips treatment in a nightmare of Wayne’s. The skyline is very Earth-like, compared to Apokolips’ architecture.

      • yeh its hard to say, apparently it isn’t actually revealed in the film and its for fans to determine if its a dream or vision of the future. It could be earth thats been concurred by darkseid who is using superman to rule this earth or it could be apokolips itself
