Finally! There’s only so many times I can watch that Comic Con trailer before my mind turns to mush.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is arguably the most highly anticipated DC Comic movie in years. The original trailer, as well as a few promotional images, are all that we’ve had to hold us over while filming was completed and post-production work continued. But that’s about to change.
A new teaser will be released on Monday, November 30th on Fox. We’ll get this sneak peek in a commercial break during the mid-season finale of Fox’s hit series Gotham. Seems fairly appropriate. The viewers who have invested their time in the prequel series deserve a glimpse of the Bat, after watching him as an awkward (and often annoying) preteen for the past year.
Fox and Gotham have already teamed up with the Batman V Superman team leading up to this release. A recent marketing campaign has the Gotham principle actors weighing in on who they believe would win, Batman or Superman - check out the video on Screen Rant. Spoiler Alert: Almost all of them are on Batman’s team. No surprise there.
Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman is going to make history when it hits theaters in March 25. This will be the first time Batman and Superman are featured in the same live-action movie. Fans of the comics have been wanting to see the two duke it out for years but, with the exception of a few video game and cartoon quarrels, we’ve never been able to see them battle for the top spot in the universe. Additionally, this movie will be the first time that Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg will be present in an live-action film ever. Why did DC wait so long to give us this?!
Luckily, DC will finally be giving fans of their heroes more film adaptations in the future. As the subtitle of Batman V Superman suggests, The Justice League is slowly being formed in the DC movie universe, and a Justice League film will be directed by Snyder and released in 2017.
It seems that the folks at DC are finally rewarding its loyal fans, and I couldn’t be more excited. After watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe flourish, expand, and connect I longed for my favorite characters from the other comic book empire to do the same. For too long were standalone movies being created (although I was mildly obsessed with Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy).
After all, its the die-hard fans to tuned in to Gotham to begin with, so recognizing us for a year of viewership seems only fitting. Because, while I enjoy nerding out every week watching the Penguin attempt to take control over Gotham, I really just want a time jump so Batman and Catwoman can be grown ups and I can get the hardcore crime fighting I grew up on.
