Comic and Movie fans all "Squeed" with joy at the release of the new Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice movie trailer at the San Diego Comic-Con this week. See the trailer below, then read our commentary and analysis of this great piece of superhero video. Cool, eh? In this video, we see a lot of detail that explains the whole "Why are Batman and Superman fighting" question. We see a U.S. Senator (Holly Hunter) decry Superman as a threat; we see a helpless Bruce Wayne watch as Kryptonian eye beams (from either Superman or Zod, we cannot tell), lance through buildings in Metropolis (the big battle from the last Man of Steel movie). We see an angry Bruce Wayne cradling a victim of the battle, with a logo from a Wayne Enterprises building in the rubble next to him. His building! Other scenes are of people literally worshipping Superman as their savior, and of Batman preparing to take down this alien god-like being. Some of the best shots are of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and frankly, she looks pretty much like an Amazonian warrior here. Any concerns that the relatively slender Gadot could pull off the Wonder Woman image are, we think, now put to rest. Another cool scene is where Superman wrecks the Batmobile as he confronts an armored Batman. As to villains, (assuming of course, that Supes is still a good guy here), we see a younger version of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) with HAIR! Hmmm...and, we also catch a reference to the Joker...very interesting. This new trailer has sparked a LOT of interest around the globe in this latest superhero movie. Fans were hoping and expecting a new trailer from DC at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and thankfully, DC, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder did not disappoint. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for a May 25, 2016 release date in the U.S.
