‘Batman V. Superman’ B-Roll Footage Shows Off the Batmobile, Explosions and Goofy Actors

Subscribe to ComicsAlliance on

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters this week (in four days, but who’s counting?), and although we’ve seen plenty of footage in all the trailers and TV spots, Warner Bros. has released another preview of Zack Snyder’s superhero epic — just in case you’re feeling a bit impatient. Four minutes of B-roll footage has arrived online, offering a sneak peek at some previously unseen sequences, along with another look at the Batmobile in action and one particularly silly Laurence Fishburne.

The B-roll footage is arguably a little more interesting than some of the recent TV spots, as it gives us a look at a few sequences before Snyder and his crew added the requisite special effects and CGI. Speaking of which, the video also features an explosion created with honest-to-goodness practical effects — for those of you worried that Zack Snyder wasn’t acquainted with the concept.

And as you can see, Jesse Eisenberg’s hair isn’t a special effect. It’s also practical, though I guess that depends on your definition of “practical.” In addition, there are a few scenes in the footage that we hadn’t seen in previous trailers, as well as one pretty delightful moment with Man of Steel’s Laurence Fishburne, who hasn’t been featured as prominently in the marketing.

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero 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 and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Holly Hunter, and hits theaters on — as if you need a reminder — March 25.
