"The greatest gladiator match in the history of the world. Son of Krypton vs. Bat of Gotham." While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice promises to be an epic showdown between DC's two greatest heroes, has the novelty been diminished by the fact that every comic book movie this year seems to be about heroes fighting other heroes? Or about villains presented as heroes? Warner Bros. certainly hopes that isn't the case, especially with their film hitting theaters in only a couple of weeks.
For now, it's time to check out some footage that hasn't already been given away for free, found in the new Korean international trailer. This one's been cut to pack as much action into 60-seconds as possible, including what appears to be Batman pulling off a Rock Bottom. Are we sure that's not Dwayne Johnson under the mask? Here's the official synopsis, but it really boils down to Bats and Supes punching one another until Wonder Woman shows up:
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25th.
