I’d like to apologies to anyone within earshot for the slightly fanboy girly squeal I might have let slip out on seeing the opening scenes of this trailer…
Although each version of Batman has a certain take on the relationship (and that’s fine), none of them have quite landed the comic book Batman/Alfred dynamic until now, but this… this is brilliant. Jeremy Irons dry slightly sarcastic wit as Bruce’s butler is played perfectly, and the more I see of Affleck as Bats, the more I think he’s going to nail this role.
We’re also treated to a few more shots of Wonder Woman/Diane Prince, and Lex (and Lex’s wig). In addition to the new trailer IMAX released the poster below with the following synopsis:
Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on Superman, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It’s up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.
The IMAX release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens 25th March in the UK.
