“Tell me, do you bleed? You will,” the Dark Knight asks the Man of Steel in first extended look at the superhero showdown…”
Tell me, are you ready for a cinematic adventure 75 years in the making? You won’t be. The IMAX trailer for Batman V Superman has leaked a couple days early and so far things are looking dark and ultra gritty and the trailer already depicts a very grizzled and experienced Batman (played by Ben Affleck) coming to odds with our Man of Steel in what looks like a train yard or vacant lot of some kind.
Already there’s a very heavy vibe similar to the tone of Dark Knight Returns, one of the most popular Batman graphic novels originally written by Frank Miller. For fans of that book they will notice several similarities between the batsuit in the film in the book as well as the section of the trailer where Batman is wearing his Bat Armor during a tense face-down with Superman. In regards to the rest of the trailer, we do hear some narration from Jeremy Irons who will be portraying Alfred, and Jesse Eisenberg, who will be playing iconic Superman villain: Lex Luthor.
Definitely be on the lookout for more news regarding the clash of these 2 comic book titans coming to theaters in 2016.
