Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment brought out some big guns at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The first trailer for David Ayers’ supervillain team-up film ‘Suicide Squad’ was certainly a crowd pleaser, but the studio debuted some fresh footage from the fight of the century when the Dark Knight faces off against the Man of Steel in ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Fans may have even seen a new cut of this trailer in theaters last week. No matter how you saw the preview, you definitely saw a familiar scene from a new point of view as you watched Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne take in the destruction of Metropolis, including one of his buildings. The reason you may recognize these events is because they were featured in the final battle of ‘Man of Steel’. But now before you relive that calamity on the big screen next year, a fan has put the pieces together to give us an idea of what the two perspectives look like together.
YouTube user Long Rangel recently posted a mash-up of the latest ‘Dawn of Justice’ footage and scenes from Zack Snyder’s first go with Big Blue from 2013. In the video, you can see a more complete picture of what Superman’s fight with General Zod looked like in the heat of the moment and on the ground. Check it out below, followed by the official synopsis of the next chapter of the DC Cinematic Universe:
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
As is the prerogative of an artist, the editor took some liberties with the footage towards the end when he teased some tension between the two heroes as Bruce Wayne stood among the rubble while holding a little girl and staring at Superman in the sky. It’s uncertain whether it will actually play out that way, but we know for sure that the Caped Crusader finds something wrong with the way the Last Son of Krypton is conducting business. Until we find out for sure, let’s hear your thoughts on this video in the comment section.
‘‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
