‘Batman v Superman’ Honest Trailer Pokes Fun At The Film That Didn’t Bring ‘Justice’ to Either Hero

The trailer calls the action flick the battle of the century between critics and fans.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is the latest film to get the Honest Trailer treatment from Screen Junkies. Calling it the “battle of the century between critics and fans,” the video starts off by noting that the greatest fight was between the most rabid supporters who sent out death threats and the harshest critics who refused to admit that anything about it was cool.

The seven-minute video tries to explain what happened in the film, but gets overwhelmed by the amount of content and information that was given to viewers. Instead, it resorts to just listing the main plot points.

“Whose idea was it to cram all this into one movie?” the voiceover asks. “They just burned through like six movies worth of good material.”

The trailer also describes the Zack Snyder picture as “a cool new Batman movie, trapped inside a boring convoluted Superman sequel, trapped inside whatever cartoon Lex Luther is from.” It also pointed out the introduction of the new Justice League that many were excited to see.

“You were promised the Dawn of the Justice League and they delivered an email attachment…The DC extended universe kicks off with a folder of low-res QuickTime videos,” it explained. Another interesting point was how many were against Ben Affleck portraying Bruce Wayne, but after seeing the film everything changed, “The actor we all assumed would be the worst part of this movie is by far the best part of this movie.”
