“Black and blue. God vs. man. Day vs. night.”
Sorry, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. Your fight might not be worthy enough to be known as the “Fight of the Century” anymore, not when Ben Affleck‘s Batman and Henry Cavill‘s Superman are coming to the big screen for their biggest fight ever.
Much to the delight of fans, the studio also quickly released the trailer online after debuting them at their panel in Hall H.
The exclusive Comic-Con trailer is definitely much more intense than the teaser trailer because not only did we see the caped crusader and the man of steel going head-to-head, we also got to see Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) and Lex Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg) making their grand entrance. The trailer also showed why Batman aka Bruce Wayne decided to go against Superman, especially after Superman caused one of the Wayne buildings to crumble to the ground, killing innocent people in the process.
Wayne’s faithful butler Alfred (played by Jeremy Irons) tried to reason with him by saying that Superman is not their enemy, but that still doesn’t stop them from attacking each other. It seems like the movie is taking a similar track as the comics too because the trailer also showed how Batman kept his sidekick Jason Todd/Robin’s costume on display in the Batcave. In the comics, Wayne kept Robin’s costume on display as a reminder of his personal failure to protect Jason or stop the Joker. It is unclear whether or not Robin’s death will be featured in a flashback scene, because if it does, Jared Leto will appear as The Joker for a brief moment.
