So we got a little tease of "Batman vs. Superman" tonight.
It sounds like we are going to get a new trailer on December 2nd on...ironically enough...Jimmy Kimmel Live and I will be tuning in again this week to check that out. But tonight, we did get a little tease of what is to come.
When the trailers came out over Spring and Summer for this movie, one thing that caught my attention was the moments where Batman is wearing a trench-coat, he is also fighting off armed men wearing the Superman symbol on their uniforms. What on Earth could that possibly mean? Why does it look like Batman is storming the beaches of Normandy? Why does Superman have armed minions? Too bad Zak Synder didn't make them polar bears as a fun gag from the past. But on an honest and more serious note, what the hell do these scenes mean? I didn't think they would really be apart of the movie. But the tease we got tonight would say otherwise.
The entire tease was one scene. We see Batman tied up, hanging from the ceiling. What is weird is that he is hanging next to others too, possibly the Sons of Batman? (Yeah, I know that is a bit of a reach, but you never know.) Then we see Superman land from a whole, and we see the scene of the armed guards on a sandy area bow down to the man of steel. Superman walks over to Batman and takes off his mask. They both give each other a vile stare down and the scene ends.
I am kind of wondering if this scene is some kind of dream sequence. Or, Snyder has something even larger brewing and both Batman and Superman will both make armies of human followers, seems a little weird and unlikely, but I don't know how else to describe this scene. Especially in the context of what we have scene in the trailers. More than ever before, I need to know what is going on here, which I think was the point of all this.
Am I looking forward to this more than "Captain America: Civil War?" Honestly, I have no answer for that. I want and need both of these movies badly. I don't play the East vs. West game, I love both Marvel and DC for different reasons and I can't wait to see the DC Extended Universe to finally begin to really unfold. For right now, I think I will be debating what this scene means for the next couple of days and I will see you back here for the next trailer.
Youtube is being silly right now, but if you Google this new exclusive sneak, you will be able to find it.
