The new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is here, and we’re counting down our top five moments from the epic teaser.
5. “Two dozen hostiles on the third floor.”
The new trailer starts off with a bang, as Batman expertly tears through a group of bad guys. It’s an action moment straight out of the comics, and showcases just how much of a force of nature Ben Affleck’s Batman truly is, giving credit to the ruthlessness of the ‘Bat Vigilante’.
4. “Even you’ve got too old to die young. Not for lack of trying.”
Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons) is front and center in the new trailer, and while he clearly appears to be helping Bruce Wayne in his mission as Batman, there’s a certain ‘I told you so’ wit and disapproving banter that is amusing to see. From all the trailers so far it appears that Alfred may not be entirely supportive of Bruce’s mission to destroy Superman, and with an actor of this caliber and class taking on the role, you can bet that there’ll be plenty of conflict between the characters.
3. The batmobile in action
With a roar of explosive power the Batmobile comes to life, and as a taste of what’s to come we see Batman taking to the streets of Gotham and Metropolis to hunt down the Man of Steel.
2. “I don’t think you’ve ever known a woman like me.”
Diana of Themyscira is here, and while sly billionaire Bruce Wayne tries to make a move, this princess isn’t one to fall under his spell. Gal Gadot is in complete control as the sassy princess, and this is just one of many mind games that we’ll see played out between these two characters.
1. Man vs God
We know that an epic brawl will unfold between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, but this new teaser offers the single coolest trailer moment yet: the look of shock on Superman’s face when Batman appears to be able to put a stop to his punch. Whoever thought this was going to be a one-sided fight will definitely be in for a surprise.
Prepare yourselves for 2016’s biggest movie event when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released in cinemas on March 24 in Australia and New Zealand and on March 25 in the US and UK.
