This doesn't give me any better of an idea of whether or not I'm going to like the movie much. I didn't care much for Man of Steel, so this will have to be extremely good in order to give me any hope that DC can produce something that will even begin to rival what Marvel has given us.

This hasn’t made me excited for the movie exactly, but it has made me start getting interested. I didn’t know how the Superman vs. Batman thing would come up. It looks Batman is going to be suspicious of Superman showing up and what his intentions are and go check him out. I could see that happening. I also think it’s an interesting angle to show people wary of the superhero like this as opposed to just being ‘Yay we have this guy protecting us now’ and not having any ‘Wait, what is going on here?’

Yeah, I agree with you. I'm definitely interested. But wary at the same time. I'm one of those people who absolutely loved Christopher Nolan's Batman. So I'm automatically going to be very critical of anything that deviates from that Batman. So, yeah, this looks like it has potential, but I'm predisposed not to like it for many reasons. ;)

Wait isn’t Wonder Woman in this too? I had completely forgot. How is that going to work? Seems to be trying to fit too much into one movie. This is all setting up DC’s go at a cinematic universe, they don’t have to do everything at once.

Wait, what? I had heard nothing about Wonder Woman being introduced already... I agree, that's way too much... That's why The Amazing Spiderman 2 failed, in my opinion.

Yeah I had totally forgotten about it because there has been no further news that I saw since the announcement way back, but it was confirmed DC was bringing Wonder Woman into the film universe they’re creating, not with her own title but as a part of this Batman v Superman movie.

DC Exec: "Hey that Civil War movie that pits two of their biggest heroes against each other after 12 films allowing the plot to culminate over a long period of time looks pretty cool--lets just do that in our second film!"

I think this looks cool but a lot of the impact is lost if Supes and Bats just go at it right away with no build.

I don't know. It shows a lot 'more' but I wouldn't call it spoiling. It actually gave more questions then answers to me, personally.

I'm definitely looking forward to this, and I really really like the extended look we've had of Affleck as Batman... I really think he has it nailed a lot better than Bale ever did. Cavill was good in MoS so I expect that to continue.

Still not sold on this version of Lex Luthor. And still not sold on Doomsday being thrown in... as well as Wonder Woman obviously in the trailer here and its pretty much confirmed a bunch of other Justice League types. Just seems like too much of a rush to try to get Avenger money into their pockets.

All that being said it does look good even with my issues with it. I like the concept that Batman is trying to take out Supes because he's just so crazy powerful, and no one should have that much power. I don't think they addressed that theme in previous Superman films. They were too busy having Richard Pryor as the main star back then.

I really want to be excited for this, because I do like the concept, or what I thought the concept was, but this looks like a complete mess. This isn't Batman vs Superman anymore, it's Batman backstory, Lex Luther introduction, Wonder Woman dropped in literally out of nowhere as apparently neither of them know who she is, and now Doomsday is in this? It's too much!

This should have been what it claims to be, Batman vs Superman. That story that the first trailer seemed to be setting up I was getting into: The public divided on how to react to Superman after what happened with Zod, Bruce Wayne personally is wary of his great power, while Clark disapproves of Batman's style of justice, so they go at each other initially but eventually work it out. Then in the next movie you bring in Wonder Woman and start toward the Justice League. But doing absolutely everything right out of the gate like they seem to be now, it looks like Batman vs Superman is actually just going to be one small part of this movie.

I'm hoping the actual movie comes together alright and they're just having trouble cutting it into a trailer without coming off awkward and overloaded, but I'm not optimistic.

I agree, they had great concepts and then apparently ruined it all.

Take Doomsday for example. I don't have strong feelings on him one way or the other but he should be saved as a really big deal since *he's the guy that killed Superman.* It looks like yeah, he'll be tough, but the three of them combined can beat him. Kind of ruins the Death of Superman storyarc if they ever decided to go that route... which they probably will if Marvel follows the comics and offs Cap eventually. ;)

That's the Lex Luthor we need, but don't deserve.

Well...

It wasn't the worst movie I ever saw, I'll give it that.

...I have the extended cut but I haven't actually seen it yet. ;)

I've heard it makes some improvements, just haven't had time to watch it. :(
