Coming out of SDCC this weekend was a cacophony of information, leaks, new information, and probably one of the biggest and most anticipated trailers of the year (that wasn’t Star Wars) for Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
It had everything you could want; there was Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Bruce Wayne looking troubled, Superman on trial (?) and so much more, so we thought we would break it down for you to help catch up on anything you might have missed.

It seems comic movies are getting more and more serious these days. With the politics that we can only guess are going to have a part in Civil War, it’s interesting that they seem to be having a part in BvS as well.
An interesting move by DC. Having obvious parallels to 9/11 was going to be a sticking point for a lot of viewers. However, here it shows that even out of the suit, Bruce Wayne is a hero, always willing to help. It’s also a safe bet that until this point, he had retired the cowl.
Following on from the previous image, we see Bruce with a child that may have been orphaned in the attack, and a look of contempt on his face. Perhaps it’s time for the cape and cowl to make a comeback?
Wayne Manor has definitely seen better days. There was a time in the 70’s where Wayne purchased a penthouse in Gotham, which may be what happened here. In the comics, it was most recently used by Dick Greyson during his tenure as Bats.
Another nod to a classic scene from DKR. this film looks amazing and is wearing it’s heart on its sleeve when it comes to where the source material has came from See? And finally, we get the epic face-to-face showdown as Supes rips the doors off the Batmobile and Batman, clearly not intimidated, stands up and looks him dead in the eye.
I think we can all agree that excitement is building more and more for this film. It certainly has big shoes to fill after the blazing success that Marvel have been having with their Cinematic releases. But, even though we’ve been lied to before with trailers (I’m looking at you, Green Lantern), after seeing this I can’t help but get sucked into the hype.
Let us know what you guys think, and if there’s anything you think we missed in our breakdown.
