As promised, albeit a lot sooner than promised, Zack Snyder tweeted a tease of the upcoming trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and with it is a link to the movie’s website, where you can RSVP and get passes to see the full trailer in IMAX at a participating theater on Monday evening. With a special introduction by Snyder himself.
You may be disappointed that all the footage we get for now is a shot of Superman’s suit and a shot of Batman’s suit and a motion graphic of the logo, but I guess we shouldn’t have expected much from this step of the game. Hope you don’t have anything else marked in your calendar for April 20th at 7pm.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the actual movie, opens in U.S. theaters on March 25, 2016.
The sequel to Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder and written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
It’s produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns all involved as executive producers. The movie is distributed by Warner Bros. and based on characters originating in DC Comics.
