It was only a matter of time. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (opens in new tab) has dropped tons of trailers, TV spots and clips over the last few months, most of which hone in on the conflict between the two superheroes. Well, now the team over at Wired has trawled through all of that footage to cook up a rather amusing riff on their squabble.
This superb piece of trailer magic for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Just Us asks that all-important question: what if their frustration and angst was actually.... masking their love for one another?
“Batman v Superman” as a rom-com? We tweaked the trailer to see what that would look like https://t.co/e1yBDDYXCK https://t.co/DwGFglkyelMarch 15, 2016
When you cut it like that, now I'm rooting for this darn pair! You've got to hand it to the Wired team, they clearly know the mechanics of trailers. Crafty edits and the use of a tinkling piano score work brilliantly, along with perhaps my favorite speech ever delivered in a movie - Ben Affleck's declaration of love in Chasing Amy. That really seals the deal.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne, and Amy Adams, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will arrive in UK and US cinemas on March 25, 2016.
