Listen to the Batman v Superman Track "The Red Capes Are Coming"
< >
Batman v Superman doesn't come out for another month, but it already has a contender for most-hated line, and now we can listen to the song named after that very line:



The song presumably plays during (or immediately after) Jesse Eisenberg's line, "The red capes are coming!" The track is third out of thirteen (before bonus tracks) on the album, which is now available for pre-order, so it likely occurs close to the beginning of the movie, and is possibly directed at Holly Hunter's Senator Finch.

Here's a preview of the last song, "Men are Still Good (The Batman Suite)":

 

Eisenberg's Lex Luthor is arguably the most controversial part of Batman v Superman so far, and that line in particular has been cited as evidence that his interpretation of the character is over-the-top and poorly written. I don't have too many feelings on the line yet, especially since we haven't seen it in context, but I'm definitely excited for Eisenberg's performance, as he's once of the most talented young actors out there right now. Whether the part is the right fit remains to be seen, but according to recent rumors about Warner Bros.' reaction to the movie, executives who have seen the film universally agreed that Eisenberg was excellent in the role.

Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25.
