Choose Your Side: The Official Batman v Superman Posters Have Arrived!
Many fans found themselves decidedly underwhelmed when the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released this weekend, and although the moody teaser racked up well over 20 million views in a short amount of time, it found itself playing second fiddle to a certain trailer that was broadcast infront of a live global audience as well as thousands of screaming fans at Star Wars Celebration. I'm not sure that there was necessarily anything wrong with the Batman v Superman teaser, instead it probably suffered from the fact that we've been treated to some of the greatest teasers in recent memory in the shape of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mad Max: Fury Road and of course, Avengers: Age of Ultron. But have Warner Bros. and DC Comics just managed to score a small victory over their comic book movie rivals, Marvel? The first official Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice posters have arrived, and if you ask me, they're better than any of the artwork we've seen for Avengers: Age of Ultron...

Many of the posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron were criticized by fans for looking like cheap photoshop jobs, but there's no chance of the same jibes being pointed towards these two efforts from Warner Bros. In contrast to the dreary teaser trailer, these posters managed to achieve the holy grail of being dark and moody while still maintaining a vibrancy that keeps them in touch with their comic book roots.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th 2016.
