The first Batman v. Superman trailer was fantastic. It raised a lot of tension, but kept the film’s plot a mystery. It drove curiosity and interest. This new trailer for the film is the exact opposite. Revealing almost every twist the film could possibly throw at us including a big bad guy, the trailer unfolds what seems like the entire plot of the film.
After a great intro scene that seems like they’re going to be opaque about things again (like Star Wars has done so well) they go right into the plot and reveal tons of drops and the fact that, yes, Batman and Superman will get along in the end in order to fight a bigger bad. I had hopes this movie was going to steer away from that cliche comic plot, but it doesn’t look like it.
After the first trailer I was pumped again for a Superman movie. After this one I’m starting to think Zack Snyder is going to deliver another problematic film.
