Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is less than one year away from hitting the big screens, but this doesn’t stop it from being a blockbuster already. With a rather blurry storyline derived from the trailer and the controversial new Batman, the movie is a hot subject on everybody’s lips.
The movie, which is set to air on March 25th 2016, is only the beginning for the long and vast DC universe that Warner Bros. wants to depict in future movies. A Justice League part one is said to be released in 2017 and we will also be witnessing the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) who will also be the starting points for new standalone movies to come.
But back to Batman v Superman: the trailer is rather misleading at times and makes us wonder what Zack Snyder had on his mind when he developed the storyline. Batman and Superman seem to have a quarrel of trust, which is normal since Batman (Ben Affleck) is not exactly the trusting kind. But what makes Batman take on Superman?
Is it because he destroyed Metropolis? Is it because he seems threatening? Or is it because of something more subtle? There has been some speculation that one of the buildings that Superman destroyed was the Wayne Tower (in Metropolis? Hm.) and that the child the Bruce embraces in the trailer is one whose parents died when the building crashed. This would make Bruce empathize with her and trigger his rage.
These are some questions that we need answers to, not because we need spoilers, but because Batman fans actually look for a good Batman storyline like the one in The Dark Knight series or in Batman Arkham Knight. A shaky Batman story would lead to a shaky movie and a disappointed audience.
Furthermore, there are rumors that the bat and Superman will have to team up against Doomsday along with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Doomsday’s creation has been hinted a few times in the trailer by showing Zod’s body and the Kryptonite owned by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). A fight against Doomsday would pretty much force the two DC titans to make peace and save the world together.
Either way, let’s hope that Snyder knows what he’s doing. His work up until now was noticeable and greatly appreciated. Hopefully, this movie will be just as good, or even better and shape the big screen DC universe as it really should be: spectacular.
