New ‘Batman v Superman’ TV Spot has Kal-El vs. the Batmobile

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted a pair of new TV spots for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As I said in my previous post, the release of the film is just over a couple months away, so yeah it’s time for the onslaught of TV trailers to begin.

Both 30-second TV ads expand the DC universe, but the first gives us a great look at a darker side to Batman, played by Ben Affleck.

Zack Snyder’s sequel to the divisive origin Man of Steel also includes Henry Cavill as the Earth’s savior and the Son of Krypton, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Superman’s girlfriend Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Superman’s Earth mom Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White and Holly Hunter as a crusading anti-Superman U.S. senator. The superhero movie is slated for a March 25 release.

The scene with the Bat car bouncing off of Supes like a pinball is pretty badass and hasn’t been revisited yet — until now. However, the Man of Steel gives zero f*cks about the Batmobile. Check it out in the player below.

“Tell me, do you bleed?.. You will” Bat’s digitized voice is great. He looks a little stoned though. Hopefully it’s because crashing the Batmobile took a lot out of him.

Update: Zack Snyder was a guest on the Conan O’Brien show and brought with him the new clip featuring the Man of Steel facing down the Caped Crusader at the broken Batmobile. Check out the badass clip below after a little pre-roll banter between Snyder and O’Brien:

“Next time they shine your light in the sky, don’t go to it. The Bat is dead. Bury it. Consider this mercy.” Badass line, but the way Henry Cavill said it, didn’t impress me much. However, this prompts Batfleck to say his famous “tell me, do you bleed? You will!” line as Superman flies off so we learn that it’s actually Superman who threatens Batman first.

In the other, Clark Kent introduces himself to Bruce Wayne, before being interrupted by Lex Luthor — nothing we haven’t seen in the final trailer. Nevermind, check out again.

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.
