It’s been a long time coming, but the wait for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is almost over. In a little over a week, moviegoers will finally get to see the Son of Krypton and Bat of Gotham fight for the first time on the big screen. With so little time left, the blockbuster is still releasing snippets of new footage here and there. One of the latest moments isn’t so much new, but just finally available to the public. We can finally see Superman and Batman charging at each other at the 1:57 mark in the video below. Take a look!



In partnership with Doritos, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice released a new video today featuring footage and commentary from the cast and crew. The whole thing capped off with the fight between the two heroes and them charging towards each other, fists ready to strike. If that scene looks familiar to some of you, it’s because it was also shown last year at the special IMAX screening of the teaser. While the online version of that preview ended with the two of the facing one another and Batman asking if Superman bleeds, fans who went to select theaters around the country got to see them rushing at each other, only for the camera to cut before they exchanged blows. It’s the same deal here, only now you can watch it in good quality rather than a bootleg version.

Fights between Batman and Superman are nothing new when it comes to comic books, animated shows, and video games, but this movie will be the first time many moviegoers not familiar with the source material see two of pop culture’s greatest superheroes duking it out. In this universe, Bruce Wayne witnessed firsthand the destruction caused by Superman and Zod’s battle in Man of Steel, and fearing the Kryptonian poses a threat to mankind, he’ll use his resources to target him. Of course, Batman’s usual gadgets won’t be enough to take on a superpowered alien, which is why he’ll break out the heavy-duty arsenal, including armor and a Kryptonite spear. That’s still no guarantee he’ll win, but those at least give him better chances of survival.

The Doritos video from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also touched on how Superman views Batman as a criminal, using brutal methods to fight crime in Gotham City. When Clark Kent’s journalistic attempts at taking the Caped Crusader down a peg don’t work, he’ll deal with the vigilante personally as Superman. In between these two is Lex Luthor, the true villain manipulating this conflict for his own purposes. After decades of Batman and Superman interacting with each other in other media, their first meeting on the big screen looks like it will be explosive.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25.
