The Asian Batman V Superman Trailer Has New Footage And An A+ Voice Over

Movies have become a global business. Because of this, studios need to market their movies everywhere at once, even before things like voice dubbing have been done for other languages. This results in either subtitles, voice overs, or both when it comes to advertising Hollywood films across the world. Sometimes it just feels like there’s something missing. This time, it feels perfect. If you need somebody to narrate your trailer for a movie that includes Batman and Superman, you need this guy. Check out the Japanese trailer for Dawn of Justice.

Of course hidden among the epic voice over we do get one brief new clip, which contains, at least, a little bit more than the German ad spot did earlier this week. Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne saying, "This may be the only thing I do that matters." Is he actually talking about offing Superman?The fun of trailers, or the infuriating part depending on your perspective, is that any line can be taken out of context to give the desired impression. On the one hand, it tends to help keep from spoiling the movie. But on the other, it has a tendency to imply the movie is doing one thing, when in fact it may be going in a different direction.

We’re sort of hoping that there’s a lot more to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice than the last trailer implied, as it seemed to really spell out every important plot point of the film. We’ve heard since then that there is a lot more left in the movie after the point at which the trailer leaves off. Still, it seems to have really given away much more than it needed to at this stage.

But seriously that voice over guy is epic. He may have the single greatest way of saying the name "Superman" since the guy who narrated the Superfriends back in the 1970’s. Seriously, check out this guy.

Batman v. Superman is setting up a DC cinematic Superfriends, I mean Justice League, of its very own. We don’t even have to wait for the summer on this one, as Dawn of Justice is set to hit theaters in March. How excited are you to see Earth’s mightiest heroes on the big screen?
