My gut tells me if Bale was in this trailer, I’d be all over this. My gut also tells me that it was the right decision by all parties to move in a new version of the Dark Knight.
I’m very biased since this week since I’ve started rebuilding my own body, but as I’ve left the gym behind, I like the little cut of Bruce pulling the monster tire truck to get his core back in shape.
Zod is in there (his body at least), Luthor obviously, the Joker is implied…and I still don’t feel like they’ve revealed the main villain of this movie just yet.
Speaking of, we already knew Eisenberg can play the socially maladjusted, arrogant genius, so seeing him in clip form…he might actually be a decent Lex Luthor. Maybe…
The 9/11 allusions are a nice touch to set up the ‘why’: A skyscraper comes down in the middle of the day, hundreds if not thousands of people die. This is reality based. Warners is obviously trying to set up their own Avengers, but good for them IF they stay away from literally trying to duplicate the tone/style of the Avengers.
‘Nobody wants to see Clark Kent take on the Batman!’ – YOU TELL HIM FISH!
‘How many good guys are left? How many stay that way?’ – Oh, now you have my attention!
I’m not hyped for this still. But…it may not be as bad as we first thought…
