Tease Me, Baby! - Batman v Superman (Final Trailer)

NOTE: This article was originally published by me on TheWebsiteofDOOM.com

The last trailer for this movie made me have an emotional break down. My review was not pretty. I'm pretty sure at some point I just smeared my own faeces across my laptop screen as a reaction. With this, the last trailer dropping (no pun intended), I braced myself for the insane asylum.

That's not necessarily what I got...





- I Am The Bat

The whole opening sequence of Batman fighting criminals in a warehouse rings very true. It's the first time since footage first hit for this movie that I felt like I've seen any real Batman moments. I think Ben will do a great job of his part.

- I See You

Aaron, you're just posting pictures of Ben Affleck's face. Yes, but I'm doing it for a reason (other than an excuse to stare in to those beautiful eyes). This trailer is almost entirely from Bruce Wayne's point of view. It represents the film as a Batman movie that features Superman. For some reason this is the first trailer I've seen for BvS:DoJ that has interested me at all and I believe it is because of that choice. Well played.

- Now Spin Around And Change Into Your Costume!

She finally speaks! But only in a cocktail dress... Warner Bros (emphasis on the Bros) has some issues, man.

OVERALL: Isn't it amazing the difference a good trailer can make? The right music, the right tone, the right footage can all turn around the public's feelings towards a film. There was previously no chance of me ever watching Batman v Superman. Now? Well, they've at least upgraded me to intrigued.
