So that suit is just skin tight right? If so, holy biceps Batman, Ben Affleck looks freakin huge.

Nah, there's no way it's not enhanced.  Not to say Affleck isn't in good shape for it, but there's no way muscles striations and veins would be showing through a material like that.  Plus, look at the chest and abs, seems clearly fake/enhanced.

Also, Ben Affleck is Sad Batmansmile

OMG! The suit has VEINS! At least we've moved on from Batman costume nipple discussions.  Fabulous

I'm digging the Frank Miller vibe, though it doesn't really mesh well with my vision of Affleck playing the role. He just doesn't seem mature or buff enough to pull off that kind of grit (and yes, I know Affleck is in his 40s but he still looks like he just stepped out of a frat house).

I always pictured the Miller Batman as being in his late 50s early 60s. Did they ever give his actual age in the comic?

I take my post back; after seeing a colorized version of the photo at Collider (http://collider.com/ben-affleck-batman-image/), the costume looks more like a potato sack, and the Batman logo is so phat you can barely even tell it's a bat at all. Maybe it's supposed to represent a paunchy, middle-aged bat?  smirk

I like the gloves. Not sure about the short ears. While that's in line with Miller's comics, it kind of makes him look more like my cat JJ to me.  icon_smile

Set picks of Affleck.  He isn't in costume but he looks like the classic Bruce Wayne to me.

What? No breathless hyperventilation about the leaked "shaky cam" trailer? Finally got removed last night I think. It's the one that's to debut in theaters before Mad Max Fury Road. Rumor is that it may have been taken by someone invited to an early screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

It starts out extremely shaky (Blair Witch Project/Cloverfield shaky), then presumably whomever snuck a camera into a theater found a way to stabilize it. Although the trailer audio was in English, it had subtitles on, which I found peculiar. I dunno, maybe that was added later.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2015/04/17/batman-v-superman-trailer-leak-zack-snyder/25925075/
*This just describes it, trailer's not available, at least not on YouTube now.

I watched it at one of the various news sites embedding the video, and found it very serious, ponderous and dark and grim (by design, so, not really a criticism per se). Affleck looked fine imho as Batman, very neat suit, but the trailer really doesn't give much insight onto his Batman-take or why he's so doggone mad at Superman. Supposedly it's over the devastation in Man of Steel, I just didn't really Get That from this trailer. Visually it's in line with all of Zak Snyder's stuff, very green screen-focused.

Didn't see Wonder Woman or Aqua Man, or maybe the trailer was so dark I couldn't make them out.  icon_smile

Also puzzling was the movie title clearly had "vs." not "v." So it'll be interesting to see if the theatrical trailer reflects that revision.

Basically the trailer is, "Batman Hates Superman" or "Batman Thinks Superman is a Putz." But that fits the title, right? icon_smile

I dunno, I thought it looked alright. 

I don't want the "everything is awesome and I am unstoppable" Superman, because that guy is boring as shit.  If they're taking cues from The Dark Knight Returns then I'm all for it. 

Of course, having said that, the fact that they've delayed this from a summer release and have now relegated it to March of 2016 gives me worry.

I think they missed the boat on when this movie fit the public sentiment. 

I am pretty sure after Hulk was always angry in Avengers (and other lighter lines) the bleak dark brooding super hero cliche died.

My problem is, Snyder is cynically deciding that a 2nd Man of Steel both needs to be "the dark sequel" (Empire Strikes Back) and must single handedly be the springboard for several other new films (Wonder Woman, Aqua Man) and reboots (Affleck-Batman, apparently with his own Iron Man suit borrowed from Miller's The Dark Knight Returns). It's so overstuffed, it makes Spider-Man 3 seem like it didn't have enough plotlines.  icon_neutral

To me, this movie makes sense if you give the Superman reboot its own trilogy and then revisit it as "Batman v Superman" maybe 20 years down the road. As "Superman Awakens."  icon_razz

Instead, you've got one Man of Steel film that was essentially a rebooted origin movie, and now BOOM, we're supposed to buy Superman already as an aging, hated, figure of suspicion -- shtick already explored in Hancock (2008) and arguably all the X-Men films.

I just go back to that first, imho, great trailer for Man of Steel. Of course later I read in Hans Zimmer's interviews that the trailer took all his music out of sequence and used it in a way that made the trailer seem like for a more "traditional" uplifting comic book movie. I liked the theme in the MoS trailer that Superman would initially be feared, the government wanted to destroy him, and then he'd proved what his motives were. And then of course instead we got mass building destruction, neck breaking and big flying penises (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V69cbB-NaQ). Which is fine. It's Zack's baby now.

Yeah, I can't help but feel that Marvel is firing on all cylinders right now and DC is still stuck in the early 90s. I enjoyed Nolan's dark take on Batman, because it counteracted the damage Joel Schumacher did to the franchise. However, even that tone feels outdated now after so many Marvel films have deftly balanced drama and humor.

Unfortunately from the early looks of the Wonder Woman and Aquaman publicity shots, they seem to be following the same grim trajectory.

Right now I'm pinning all my hopes on DC's movie future with Suicide Squad.

It's not Snyder needing to launch all of these heroes (and Justice League), it's DC. 

Also, from everything I've heard, this is not an aging Superman, just an aging Batman.  IIRC, this takes place very shortly after the end of the last film.

But I don't want to defend this film.  Back to blech.

I don't get it.  I really don't.  It's like they're going out of their way to not understand these characters.

Now I have heard that this is part of a dream sequence of some kind (some toy listed this as part of Bruce's Dream or something), but there is no indication of that here, and so they are marketing this for you to be excited about Superman having followers who drop to one knee when he arrives and a Batman who would stay locked up for more than five minutes.

Also, why the hell is Superman's Not-An-S all shiny like a track suit from the 90s?

I was expecting to be underwhelmed, but not see anything that I actively hate.  Then I watched Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

I have a lot of problems with Man of Steel, but the one thing they nailed was the scale of the DC universe. It's so big that it's overwhelming. BvS looks like it ramps that up to an 11venty!!! and doesn't look back. They haven't even shown off the other Justice Leaguers who are going to show up, so this doesn't give away all the surprises.

That being said, I still don't get why they're basically starting at Dark Knight Returns and going from there. At this point, a Batman origin story can be handled in flashback (like they do here) and then move on. But all the villains and events have been in play for years before we even get there. Hell, they do everything but namecheck Jason Todd in both trailers. We all know who that is, but the average moviegoer may not.

I get that DC is doing things differently than Marvel, and I applaud them for at least making that effort. But I'm going to remain on the fence for a bit longer as to whether this was the best direction. I take comfort in the DCTVU though which is knocking it out of the park. So there's always that.

WW was the thing I liked the most.

Also, the movie is called "Dawn of Justice" because it's setting up the Justice League movie.

More animated, yes.  More interesting?  Really?  Watch that scene where he interrupts Clark and Bruce.  That's some bad acting.  And, once again, entirely dismisses what the character is supposed to be.

Isenberg looked even worse than I imagined. He's not supposed to be playing a psychotic batvillain, He's supposed to be playing Lex Luthor. Luthor is an ego-maniacal super genius, not some insane clown. This movie is going to be terrible.
