Hot off the San Diego Comic Con panel, we have our first full trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The original teaser that was released a couple months ago caught my curiosity, but this….this has my attention. Many fans have been wary of DC’s acceleration of their cinematic universe, but it truly looks like they now mean business. Juggling so many characters is a grand feat, but with the way Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad are shaping up, and the introduction of Wonder Woman, it’s possible it can be done.
Fans have noticed some easter eggs in the trailer, which further increased my expectations. Robin’s seemingly vandalized suit is shown (likely that of Jason Todd at the hands of the Joker), allusions to the Suicide Squad, and more homages to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Fans still have to wait almost a year to see the battle go down, but there’s no doubt about it: “The Red Capes are coming.” Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016.
