While it's not exactly a huge Christmas gift, there is a stocking stuffer's worth of new footage in the latest Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser. This international sneak peek is for Asian audiences. And more than anything, it delivers one epic voice over. Even if you don't speak the language, it will put you in the right mood for a blockbuster superhero epic featuring The Man of Steel and The Dark Knight!
While most of the footage in this Japanese trailer has ben seen before, we do get one brief new clip. We see more of Ben Affleck's millionaire Bruce Wayne out of his Batman suit of armor. And he offers an intriguing new line of dialogue that we haven't heard him utter before. Ominous, and too the point, he tells Alfred the following.
"This may be the only thing I do that matters."
Of course, we're not sure where this line falls in context to the story playing out in the movie. Is he talking about his epic battle with Superman, which clocks in at the midway point of the movie? Or is he talking about saving Metropolis and Gotham from Lex Luthor and his Doomsday creation? Or is he talking about taking Wonder Woman in the other room and making a baby Justice League? We just don't know.
While the third trailer released earlier this year gave us our first look at big threat Doomsday, we've since learned that the mutated Zod is not part of the third act conflict. And that something bigger is promised. Something that requires Lex Luthor to bring in the help of Aquaman. How will all this play out in the end? We're not sure. But when the dust settles, we expect the first pieces of the Justice League will be locking together.
Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman vs Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before. Check out the latest look at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, thanks to Japan!
