Zack Snyder just blew the lid off of Hall H moments ago by bringing out Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck (In full leather daddy mode), and Gal Gadot for “Batman v Superman.” He teased he didn’t have any footage and offered a photo of Wonder Woman.
Not one for hyperbole, Snyder followed this up by saying he had a little something to show. The lights dimmed the audience was treated to the first teaser.
I’m going to take Slash Film’s description, as those dudes are iron clad.
The short teaser opens with Batman in a full armor suit from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Glowing eyes, very mechanical, it’s pouring rain He pulls down a lever on something and we realize it’s the Bat Signal. It has the new Batman logo (reminiscent of the one from Miller’s comic). The camera slowly pans up to reveal the signal projected in the air but right in the middle of it: Superman. He’s illuminated in the sky amongst the pouring rain with his red glowing eyes. Cut back to Batman, staring right back at Superman with his blue glowing eyes and we cut to the logo.
Sounds like a pretty fantastic rendering of Frank Miller’s famous comic that redefined Batman as a brooding badass. My problem remains to be addressed, Snyder is all style and zero substance. Let’s see if his actual story can trump the visuals when the movie hits.
