‘Batman v Superman’ Clip Lets Superman Take it Easy on The Dark Knight

I’m honestly still not entirely sure what to expect from the onscreen Batman vs. Superman fight in Dawn of Justice later next month. While all of the Batman action has seemed spectacular from the trailers, my worry and skepticism that Zack Snyder might go too overboard with the main fight of the film has not gone away over the past few months.

After releasing some posters that hinted heavily at the confrontation between The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, a new official clip from the film has been released, that gives us our first real, uncut taste of the action between these two onscreen titans.

Check out the clip below (via Jimmy Kimmel Live):

Okay yeah, that moment of Superman catching the batarang is cool, but I’m not a huge fan of how slow Batman seems to be moving. After all the negative press and skepticism that the film has been surrounded in over the past few months though, it’s been hard to look at it without some kind of influence from the outside world seeping in, and I have to imagine it will be that way for a number of other moviegoers as well.

I look forward to seeing Batman v Superman sometime soon in the next few weeks, but I’m going into it crossing my fingers that Zack Snyder and co. chose to focus on the right things this time around, rather than just the spectacle of it all.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters on March 25th.

    It’s not a batarang he catches. Batman obviously is holding some kind of gun or more than likely a grenade launcher which a grenade is what it looks like Superman catches. My guess though, it’s a gas canister that delivers the Kryptonite gas. Also Batman doesn’t seem to move too slow when he’s able to get past Superman moving at superspeed without Superman noticing. I feel like we watched different clips. The outside influence you mentioned is definitely noticeable in the article.
