‘Batman v Superman’ International Trailer Offers New Footage of Batman Fighting Superman
We’ve seen a lot of intimidating glares and one-liners exchanged between Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Dawn of Justice trailers, but we haven’t seen too much of their actual fighting — you know, the actual Batman v Superman stuff. A new international trailer offers a little previously unreleased footage, featuring some of what the film’s title has promised.
The trailer is dubbed in German, which makes it a delightful viewing experience — you can’t understand what these characters are talking about, but we get the idea thanks to the previous trailers. Batman and Superman do not agree on how guys in capes should help the world, basically. But there is some new footage of a fight between the two, with Superman utilizing his heat vision power to battle the Dark Knight.
The sequence looks as though it takes place around the time that Doomsday shows up, ultimately bringing these guys together (along with Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman) in their shared need to save lives and deliver justice.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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 also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Holly Hunter as a new government character, with Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne reprising their roles from Man of Steel. The new film hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
