I love SDCC. So much new info and new trailers to see on all the things we love here at Geeks of the Round; it’s a great time! Here’s the hottest trailer coming out of San Diego today – a brand new look at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
This looks cool, but I have to be honest here. I’m still not sold. Can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I’m really still not feeling this one. The one thing I do know that I don’t like is what I’m seeing of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor here. That’s rubbing me the wrong way certainly. Also I still have no idea how Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman plays into this story, let alone Cyborg and Aquaman (not in the trailer), played by Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa respectively.
I will say that it’s cool to see Joker’s influence in this trailer (could we possibly see Jared Leto popping in at some point?), and seeing who I think is Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne is also a good thing. Also despite my initial reaction to Ben Affleck’s casting as Bruce Wayne, I think he’ll actually do a good job with the character. So long as the writing and story are there, and I’m not 100% sure I trust David S. Goyer to do it right (I wasn’t a fan of Man of Steel).
Still, I absolutely have my eye on this one and will very likely go see it in theaters when it releases on March 25th, 2016. How about you all? Excited about what you see in this trailer, or do you share my trepidation? Let us know in the comments!
