Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor feature in the new trailer too
Following yesterday’s two new teasers, a new 90-second Batman v Superman trailer has been released by Warner Bros.
The new trailer features glimpses of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor as well as Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. Jeremy Irons’ Albert Pennyworth – Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman’s butler – also makes an appearance.
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justiceis set to open in cinemas worldwide on March 25. Director Zack Snyder has explained that the beginning of the film is weighted more heavily towards Ben Affleck’s Batman than Henry Cavill’s Superman, but “evens back out” as the narrative progresses.
Meanwhile, Cavill recently confirmed that the film isn’t conceived as a sequel to 2013’s Superman reboot Man Of Steel, but is “more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel“.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Holly Hunter as a US Senator, Laurence Fishburne as newspaper editor Perry White and Diane Lane as Superman’s adoptive mother Martha Kent.
The plot synopsis for the film teases: “At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.
“Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.”
Meanwhile, it has recently been reported that Affleck is to direct, co-write and star in a stand-alone Batman film set for release at some point in 2018.
