-- After the first trailer leaked late Thursday night for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," director Zach Snyder took it upon himself to release the official 2-minute clip late Friday.
So, here it is and now we can talk about it!
Here are the highlights:
1 - Society Doesn't Know What to Make of Superman
He may have saved our planet in "Man of Steel," but he's still basically invincible. The clip opens with "Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?"
2 - The Masses Want Him to Leave Earth
After Holly Hunter's voice says "Absolute power corrupts absolutely," we see a statue in Superman's honor with the writing "false God," as you hear the crowd chant "go home!" With this said, it seems some authority has bowed down to him as seen in another scene that looks to be police letting him take over in some kind of situation.
3 - Batman is Not Nolan's Batman
"That's how it starts, the fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness, that turns good men, cruel," Alfred (Jeremy Irons) says as Ben Affleck stares at his Batsuit, thinking about his current situation.
Is he jealous of Superman's power. He's an older Batman, has he retired and now wants back in with this alien running justice?
4 - There Will Be Blood
In an epic scene, Batman, in his iron Superman-busting special suit, looks up and asks him, "Tell me, do you bleed? ... you will!"
5 - The Raspy Voice is Back
Yep, Bale did it, now Affleck will too. His Batman sounds more robotic, but raspy and altered nonetheless.
Bonus - Jesse Eisenberg has a creepy voiceover as Lex Luthor in the intro, where he shows his hatred for Superman already.
Anyway, the trailer looks pretty epic and March 2016 can't get here any sooner.
