The New ‘Batman v Superman’ Teaser Hypes Up The Iconic Superheroes’ Rivalry

With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hitting cinema screens in exactly three weeks from today, Warner Bros. has released another new TV spot teaser. It mainly features footage familiar from previous trailers, including a tantalising glimpse of the moment Jesse Eisenberg’s super-slimy Lex Luthor introduces Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne to Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent. There’s also a brief flash of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman – who’ll be starring in her own film in 2017 – and an Eisenberg voiceover hyping up the rivalry between the two superheroes as “the greatest Gladiator match in the history of the world”. No pressure, then.

Meanwhile, it’s being reported that Jena Malone’s “secret character” from the movie – rumoured to be either Barbara Gordon a.k.a. Batgirl or Carrie Kelley, a female version from the Robin – has been cut from the the film’s theatrical release. According to Entertainment Weekly, her character will now only appear in the film’s R-rated extended cut on Blu-ray and DVD. Though Malone’s role in the film was expected to be pretty small, it’s a shame she’s been sliced given her considerable cult appeal from the Hunger Games franchise and of course Sucker Punch, which was directed by Batman v Superman‘s Zack Snyder.
