Just one day after the New York Premiere, new footage has surfaced from the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hitting theaters in just four short days on March 25. Amazon has a new TV spot which features some never-before-seen footage, including the Batwing crashing, Martha Lane (Diane Lane) offering some advice to her adopted son Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill), plus more footage of Superman's intense battle with Batman (Ben Affleck). While many think that Superman has a natural edge over Batman, due to all of his powers, the end of this first TV spot proves that The Dark Knight may have a chance.
In all of the previously released footage we've seen of Batman and Superman's fight, Superman is shown to have a clear edge, in some scenes literally tossing Batman around. The final moments of this new video are quite telling, showing Batman actually blocking one of Superman's punches, telling Superman "You're not brave. Men are brave." Of course, this doesn't mean that Batman will necessarily win in his battle over Superman, but it teases that this epic battle most certainly won't be a one-sided affair.
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. He 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.
