Batman Takes Center Stage in the Best Batman v Superman Trailer Yet
< >
Who knew there was this much footage we hadn't seen? Batman is the uncontested star of the final Batman v Superman trailer, and it's probably no coincidence that it's the best one yet, because he's an absolute BAMF.

Plus, Wonder Woman speaks for the first time!

The first half of the trailer is entirely Batman-centric, and it's so exciting that I get a little disappointed when Superman comes on screen (no offense to Henry Cavill). So far, it looks like the rumors are true: Ben Affleck is perfectly cast as Bruce Wayne, and he might be the most violent and sadistic Batman we've seen yet. (Plus, he's seen firing guns at the end, so it looks like those rumors about the no-kill rule are true as well.)

Opening quote
"He has the power to wipe out the entire human race," says Bruce of Superman. "If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty."
Closing quote

We also see a little bit more of Wonder Woman in this trailer, and the romance between her and Bruce seems to be more pronounced than I thought. Hopefully there will be more focus on her fighting skills, which are in full display at the end of this (decidedly less spoiler-y) trailer.

Which leads to the most important question: why didn't they just lead with this trailer, rather than giving away the farm with the other two? This trailer would have gotten fans much more excited, without giving everything away. It's certainly gone a long way towards getting me excited about it again.

Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25.
