10 Observations About the New 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' Trailer

The latest trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, making it abundantly clear that Warner Bros. is holding nothing back in its attempt to jump-start its shared cinematic universe. There's clearly a lot going on in this movie, and even though there are some things that don't really sit right with me quite yet (namely Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor), there's a lot to be optimistic about. Here are 10 thoughts I had while watching this new look at Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman, hitting theaters March 25, 2016.

  1. Ben Affleck is a much better Bruce Wayne than I thought he'd be. Also, the "bad history with freaks dressed like clowns" line got a squeal out of me. Sorry, not sorry.
  2. Jesse Eisenberg is channeling Jim Carrey from Batman Forever in playing Lex Luthor. I'm not sure why.
  3. I hope Luthor's whole "Bruce Wayne meets Clark Kent" schtick isn't in the actual movie. It feels like a line written entirely for the trailer, along with the "you should not pick a fight with this person" bit right after it.
  4. Holy crap, that's a cool Batplane!
  5. Parademons?!
  6. Zombie Zod is Doomsday?! Okay, I really like that.
  7. Seems like Batman and Supes will have their titular standoff in the middle of the movie, and will unite against a common enemy (Doomsday) for the finale. This trailer might be revealing too much, but whatevs.
  8. Wonder Woman! Gal Gadot looks awesome, and I dig Batman and Superman's reactions to her sudden appearance. 
  9. Seeing DC's Trinity posed for battle in a live-action movie is pretty much Chicken Soup for the Geek Soul. 
  10. I'm now looking forward to this movie a lot more than I thought I would. Good job, trailer!
