Dropping this morning from Warner Bros. UK is the epic new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and it’s got us pretty excited.
Of course Henry Cavill as Superman is still your all-American hero, all very stiff and proper (he should be known as an all British Hero with his stiff upper lip) but joining him is Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight, Batman and the brilliant casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luther. We don’t think the trailer will disappoint true die hard fans.

Gotham’s billionaire playboy meets The Daily Planet’s intrepid reporter Clark Kent in the epic new trailer
From director Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel”) comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo”) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”) as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
The film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (“American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (“Unfaithful,” “Man of Steel”) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Man of Steel”) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the “Fast and Furious” films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is released in cinemas March 2016.
