Broadsheet Trailer Park: Batman Vs Superman

at

batman vsuperman

What you may need to know:

1. Certain factions begin to consider Superman (Henry Cavill) as a threat to mankind in the aftermath of the city-destroying events of Man of Steel (2013). Enter the Batman (Ben Affleck).

2. Affleck does look mighty impressive in the Batsuit, and the voice is a huge improvement on Christian Bale’s risible Batvoice. Lest we forget – he was da bomb in Phantoms (1998).

3. With Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg in the mix with Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, I predict some cluttered Spider-Man 3 (2007) style shenanigans.

4. Also… Zack Snyder. Let’s face facts – Man of Steel (2013) was an unholy mess of exposition, climaxing with a blue blur throwing a grey blur through buildings for the best part of an hour.

5. And no John Williams? Huge mistake.

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: Holy green screen crapfest, Batman.

Release Date: March 25, 2016

      Yeah, I dunno I feel this type of odd casting seems to be the thing nowadays. Personally think they had to overlook a lot more worthy choices to pick Ben Affleck. Trailer looks okay, but the superhero genre is really getting saturated. With all the reboots and tv shows I’m just not that interested in these movies anymore.

    This would have been much better if it weren’t for the Star Wars teaser being infinitely better than anyone expected. This just can’t measure up. They should have pushed the trailer release back a few weeks; Mad Max is nearly a month away still.

    How can Batman last 1 second against Superman, given that he is infinitely more powerful? If he does then shame on Superman for failing to take care of Batman (not necessarily kill him) in the first scene.

      Didn’t you see Man of Steel, Superman’s wussy, destroyed a city and thousands died because he couldn’t kill the bad guy, because of his conscience…. bleedin wuss

        Also Superman can’t fight. He’s all smash and bash which didn’t help him against Faora-Ul. Batman is a highly trained and practiced martial artist and has the resources of Waynetech to call on. Having read his Sun Tzu he’ll have studied Superman, prepared accordingly (kyrptonite or red sun rays) and picked his ground and time carefully.

    If they’re going to steal half the plot/look from The Dark Knight Returns, why not just make The Dark Knight Returns?

    I’ve come to the conclusion that most broadsheet readers are miserable pretentious fools.
