Batman v Superman Trailer Premieres
The official "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer has premiered, and boy, does it ever do its job. It's riddled with mood, a brush of "Dark Knight Returns" and flows with garrulous, mainstream-media chants and unsettling images: a denouncement of heroes, alas. Nonetheless, that's the way it goes today, in reality as well as fiction, but this one will likely make a profound statement on the situation.
I'm not in favor of these two favorites being pitted against each other over any significant stretch, but the conflict should iron itself out, I believe, once the story gets rolling. Anyway, this one sure looks like it has the makings of something epic...something thought-provoking......something classic. We'll see...
