'Power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely.' This is the warning Holly Hunter's Senator Finch gives Kal-El as he faces a jury of his peers for the destruction done in Man of Steel. A new international TV spot has arrived for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It doesn't contain any new footage, but it does repackage what we've seen before in a new and thrilling way.
Jeremy Irons's Alfred Pennyworth questions Bruce Wayne's (Ben Affleck) reasoning behind going to war against the superhuman exterterestrial know to the world as Superman. But Lex Luthor is all for this war, calling it the greatest gladiator match in the history of the world. The Son of Krypton vs the Bat of Gotham!
It may not be much of a fight, though. As Kal-El so boldly states during his battle with the Dark Knight, if he wanted it, he could definitely kill Bruce with the snap of his fingers and little else. Wayne doesn't take these threats lightly. The billionaire turned vigilante is ready to teach Kal-El what it truly means to be a man!
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.
