“There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” While those are the words fans heard in the first trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” they could also be used to describe the colossal meeting between two superheroes in next spring’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” The movie is now just months away and a new trailer is here to show more of the spandex showdown between DC Comics‘ biggest brands.
The Zack Snyder directed movie has already rubbed some the wrong way, showing Superman attacked by the public for his wanton destruction in “Man Of Steel,” and unsmilingly unmasking Batman. Too dark, too grim? Depends on who you ask, but clearly, Warner Bros. and co. are staking a distinct flavor that’s quite different than Marvel‘s sunnier confections. And surely, this new trailer will on spur the debate about which tone is more fitting for blockbuster entertainment.
