It's been an epic past couple of days for DC fans anxiously awaiting their first glimpse at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the bigger DCU. First, the epic trailer leaked on Friday, which lead to Warner Bros. officially releasing the entire thing early. Next came a peak inside the Batman exhibit at the Warner Bros. Studios lot. We also got two new teaser posters. And if that wasn't enough, director Zack Snyder conducted a special free screening of the trailer at participating IMAX theaters, where an additional five seconds was shown. Now, he has shared a full look at the new Batsuit hanging inside the Batcave, giving us all a better idea of The Dark Knight's new and improved look.
At last night's special IMAX screening, fans were given one of two new posters featuring either Ben Affleck as Batman or Henry Cavill as Superman. They were also knighted ambassadors of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and received tickets to see the franchise sequel one week early next March. But the biggest surprise last night came when an additional 5 seconds appeared within the trailer that will not be available online.
What did these five seconds contain? Apparently, Superman is very upset with Batman. Some might even say he was 'pissed off', to use a more gritty term in line with the film itself. There is a medium-shot of Henry Cavill in his super suit running straight for the camera. This cuts to a medium shot of Ben Affleck in his retrofitted Bat Armor running at the camera. They are playing one mean game of chicken. The next cut is a long-shot of Superman coming in like a speeding bullet from the left with his fist drawn, as The Dark Knight lumbers towards the Man of Steel. Just as they are about to collide, the screen cuts to black, then the iconic logo we know and love so well.
Set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. If you look hard enough, you may find the bootleg extra 6 seconds online. For now, take a look at Batman's full Batsuit as it sits hanging in the Batcave waiting for its big fight against the first son of Krypton. The biggest brawl in comic book history happens next March! Are you ready?
