Update: The portion of the trailer in question was taken down by YouTube. Apparently, Warner Bros didn't authorize it to be out there. Fortunately, the trailer will still arrive via special screenings on Monday! So, get fired up about that. Below, you can find our description of all the exciting moments that were inside the incredible-looking teaser! Be excited, fans. We're not that far away anymore!
Original Post: There has been an ongoing battle of tentpole blockbuster marketing lately, with Zack Snyder’s wildly-anticipated B atman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trying to swipe a little bit of the white-hot spotlight occupied by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After teasing 20 seconds of superhero costumes, Snyder set the stage for a Monday reveal. But the Internet had other plans. Footage from what looks like the Batman v Superman trailer hit Twitter, then YouTube. The quality’s crappy, but here’s what it shows:

The footage looks very similar to the short clip Zack Snyder brought to Comic-Con last summer, with an armor-suited Batman (Ben Affleck) staring down a hovering Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) in a rainstorm. Only, in this clip, we hear Ben Affleck for the first time. If you can’t tell, because of the quality of the clip, Batman is saying to Superman, "Tell me, do you bleed? You will…"

And that’s basically it. If this actually does come from the trailer, it’s likely the very end of the clip, because it feeds right in to the title card logo, and credits. The user who shared this leaked footage also posted a similarly crappy still of what looks like crowds pointing up at Superman, as he looks down on a crowd.

Are these legit? The quality gives us pause – it really looks like it was photographed and filmed in a terrible theater using 2002-era technology and equipment. But the shots of Batman in that above footage looks exactly like the Batman Snyder showed to fans at Comic-Con… the Frank Miller-inspired Caped Crusader with the glowing eyes. I wish we could hear Affleck’s voice better. Hell, I wish we had the whole trailer to share. In due time.

And that’s why Star Wars wins today’s battle of the blockbuster marketing. While Disney holds a multi-camera live-stream presentation loaded with footage and cast participation, Batman v Superman fans have to endure footage leaks of partial bits of an upcoming trailer. Sometimes, it’s better to deliver all of the goods up front, rather than holding back and trying to be coy.
