“I don’t think you’ve ever known a woman like me.”
We’re not only weeks away from the arrival of the newest chapter in DC’s film universe, and perhaps the most ambitious movie they’ve ever done. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will mark the first time we have seen the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel together in a major feature release, but that’s not the half of it. Through in Wonder Woman and this film takes shape a whole other shape. Suddenly, this isn’t about Bats and the Big Blue Boy Scout, but about the whole DC universe. Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman haven’t been shown in footage yet, but they are all said to make appearances here too.
Some have feared that this is simply too much to cram into a movie and still deliver the level of quality that we’re hoping for. A similar fear was raised ahead of the release of The Avengers in 2012, but Marvel and Joss Whedon had the advantage of five leadin movies to establish characters. DC has had only one, Man of Steel. To DC’s credit however, Batman (new to this film lineage) doesn’t really need much introduction.
Anyway, here is the film’s final full length trailer;
So, lots of involvement by Mr. Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons), and a little more from Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Mostly though, this trailer is a showcase for the action. Superman displaying his power, before Bats can eventually stand up to it. Explosions, snappy dialogue from the villain, Lois Lane in a bathtub – this is a Hollywood trailer if I’ve ever seen one. The shot of Wonder Woman leaping into battle looks like it was ripped right from 300, and makes it near impossible to forget that Zack Snyder is directing. And I’m okay with that.
Also, in case you missed them, during the Super Bowl Warner Bros. dropped two commercial spots…
