There’s a very good chance that, by the end of next week, we will have a legitimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer to share with you guys. Warner Bros. is hosting a massive panel from the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, and while Zack Snyder’s title isn’t officially on the roster, you know there’s no way possible the studio can let a Hall H presentation float by without bringing something from one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the near future. Until then, we stumbled on this totally fake, but still chill-inducing fan-made trailer, to get you even more amped up for the possibility of next week’s reveal.
The YouTube user BvS Teaser cobbled this together, cleverly using General Zod’s pirate-radio telecast from Man of Steel to suggest how Ben Affleck’s caped crusader might be brought into the fold in the Batman v Superman team up. You remember when Zod tried to strike fear in the hearts of the Earth’s population by letting them know that there is an alien living amongst us?
As you can see in the above clip, Zod’s telecast reached all corners of the globe. There’s no reason to doubt that the message also reached Gotham City, and the cave of a certain grizzled protector who will want to see with his own eyes this "threat" that now exists on our planet. We have been speculating for some time that the destruction caused by Superman (Henry Cavill) in the conclusion of Man of Steel would summon the Bat (Ben Affleck) to Metropolis to see what needs to be done. Is this the direction that screenwriter David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder will head.
Hopefully we’ll know a lot more about the plot of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice once Comic-Con concludes. One person who doesn’t believe that the future of the franchise looks bright, however, is Gary Oldman. The legendary actor of course played Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and he spoke with Yahoo UK about continuing the story while promoting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Said Oldman:
The thing about Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as The Joker was, it was based [on reality]… we could relate to it. But now we’ve got a Batman and we’ve got a guy who can fly who’s an alien?! We’ll have to see… It’s got big shoes to fill."
It does, indeed. Hopefully we’ll have a great new official trailer to talk about in the coming week… even though Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is two years away. For now, did you like the fan-made trailer?
