Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder appeared on TBS' Conan last night, where he shared a brand new clip from the highly-anticipated superhero adventure. We have already seen the first part of this scene in the trailers, where Superman (Henry Cavill) tears the doors off the Batmobile to confront Batman (Ben Affleck). The rest of the footage is brand new, though, with the Man of Steel telling the Caped Crusader that he shouldn't answer the Bat-signal, the next time it goes up in the sky.
Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society.
Batman fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman's wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction. The director also shed some new light on how they came up with this concept for the Batmobile during his appearance on Conan.
"I think the cool thing that we tried to do is... you've seen the Christopher Nolan movies, the Tumbler. They repurposed a military vehicle. The cool thing about our Batmobile is it's purpose-built by Bruce Wayne to be the Batmobile. It's slightly 'batty-er.'"
The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love. Zack Snyder (300) returns as director following the huge success of 2013's Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere.
The supporting cast includes Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. Who do you think will win this battle between two superhero legends?
