Personally I think a character should stay fairly close to how they were originally, but with some liberties in the smaller areas.

In that case, Superman should not be able to fly.  His original power set was: "Leap 1/8th of a mile [200 meters]; hurdle a twenty-story building...raise tremendous weights...run faster than an express train... and that nothing less than a bursting shell could penetrate his skin!"."

I just saw the new trailer.   

Wow...what a complete pile of meh.     I actually had very high hopes for this.   After the mis-step of Man of Steel, and the pressure being on because of Marvel just seeming to make it look effortless (not to mention the very promising trailer for Suicide Squad which I thought was very good), I really had high hopes that DC was going to pull a rabbit out of their hat and give us a movie series that would live up to the promise and give Marvel a run for its money.

But this was....just....    not good.   I even defended the choice of Big Ben in the batsuit, but this looks like a parody of itself.

This is an appearance by Patton Oswald on the Screen Junkies web show. 

At the 4 minute mark, he nails EXACTLY why the DC universe is just not getting it, and by implication he nails that Marvel is getting it right....because the characters are totally different.

It was a very meh trailer. Oddly paced. I didn't like the music they chose for it. The Comic-Con trailer was absolutely epic.

I'm not gonna judge based on a trailer....because I thought Age of Ultron was going to be awesome and it turned out to be a stinking pile of shit. I still remain optimistic for BVS

Plus this shot at the end of trailer.....i don't care how poorly cut this trailer was....this shot was the money maker for me

Im still super hyped for this movie.
The trailer was definitely not as good as the previous one. It lacked the epicness and was put together really bad.
And even though Batman/Superman-fans knew that they would eventually team up - it's a big spoiler for everybody else!

What I liked:
- It seems like there's some humor in there - that definetely lacked in Man of Steel!
- Ben Affleck still looks like a really good choice for Batman. I loved his Batman-voice!
- Wonder Woman looks great!
- Jesse Eisenberg was not as bad as I feared in this trailer. He looks like a psychopath - however, he still doesen't remind me of Lex Luthor.

What I didn't like:
- They showed Doomsday! Why reveal him before the movie?!!
- Doomsday looked like your average superhero-movie-monster.
- Superman is still Super-emo-man
- They spoiled like the entire movie: Batman hates what happened in Man of Steel. Batman doesen't trust Superman. Superman doesen't trust Batman. Batman and Superman fights. Lex creates Doomsday. Wonder Woman saves the day. Superman and Batman become friends and fight Doomsday together with Wonder Woman. They probably kill Doomsday. Justice League - wohoo! Movie ends.

Yeah, after seeing that trailer, there is no way I'm going to a theater for that. I'll wait the 3 weeks it will take for it to be VOD.

Wow!!!  That is exactly how NOT to do a trailer.  Doomsday looks like a charred Ben Grimm from the last FF movie.

I'll still go see it, but I will place my expectations on the floor and step over them as I walk into the theatre.  These kinds of action movies with big budget and big effects have to be seen in the theatre.  I'll just treat it like eye-candy.  That's all.

I don't grab a Snickers bar expecting a filet mignon.  This will be snickers.

Is Zack Snyder aware that this Lex Luthor feels like taken right out of Batman and Robin? The contrast between the dark and brooding conflict between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent and then Luthor showing up and being kooky is like nails on chalkboard.

Lex looks awful.  And the trailer is terrible - I feel like I know the whole movie now.

Can't believe they went with Doomsday.  Can't believe they REVEALED Doomsday.

Just bad.  Almost all of my hopes are gone.

Yeah, all of that. Eisenberg as Luthor looks awful.  He comes across more like Harley Quinn than Lex Luthor.

Thanks to some spoilery thumbnails on youtube I have agsinst my will found out about Doomsday. I love Doomsday, always wanted to see him in a live action movie. But something about this just feels iffy.

I wouldn't mind them setting up Doomsday, maybe having the creation of him towards the end and end on a cliffhanger with him having escaped and Batman/Superman agreeing they need to work together, cue credits and then you have Justice League set up. But this looks a bit like Spider-Man 3 with Venom, shove in one of the best enemies for the last 15 minutes of a film and totally waste him. Doomsday is one of those few villains I could see be a potential threat needing the whole Justice League to take down, and it feels wrong in so many reasons to waste him like this.

Depends on which version of Doomsday. The mindless super-unstoppable-universal-destroyer doesn't really need an entire movie. That's the version of Doomsday I like the most. But then there's the clever Doomsday, which isn't as interesting. Or they could take inspiration from the Smallville TV show and do the transforms-into-a-human Doomsday. That was one of my favorite Smallville stories, and that would definetely warrant an entire movie. Although a cinamatic version of that would need an actually satisfying end fight.

I feel that this is an absolute perfect contrast to the beautifully shown Civil War trailer (and I'm not starting or even 'in' the Marvel vs. DC thing because I don't give a shit and also I've passed puberty, for anyone wanting to drudge that up). Disregarding the company behind it and the movie itself, that was just a perfect movie trailer in its own right. It showed us story, it showed us brief bits of characters and action, and that was that; boom, see it or don't. This? This was the 'car salesman' trailer. It overstayed its welcome, it showed too much and it was too over the top for its own good; it felt desperate at times. Horrible trailer for what looks to be at least a fun movie. I'll probably catch it on either home release or down the line in theater after the crowds clear out. As far as judging of of trailers though, it looks pretty typical.

Also 2008 The Hulk called and wants its Abomination back. Holy crap. Dead ringer. That is really bad.

No confusion.

Doomsday doesn't necessarily need multiple films, but he needs a Superman film, not a hybrid film like this.  And it doesn't need to be this early in the career of DCU Superman, either.

Just bad, bad, bad.

Doomsday probably should be in a Superman solo movie, but there are cool things they could do with more members of JL. But yes, it should not be this early.

Sooooo I just realized something guys....


SUBJEKT 17 LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE MONSTER IN THE TRAILER






It makes more sense that it's Subjekt 17 and not Doomsday. Subjekt 17 came to life in the comics from an extraterrestrial beings DNA, which in this case could be Zod. He's a worthy foe for the Trinity and a good warm up villain for the DCEU

There's been talks of Doomsday ever since they announced BvS though, and it feels like they really go out of their way to blow all their load in this film (hence why they shove in Wonder Woman and Aquaman) so putting in Doomsday, arguably a top3 Superman-villain, makes more sense with what they have been doing so far, than putting in a more unknown villain.

I was watching TV the other night and I saw a movie preview for Batman vs Superman. WTF? What is that all about? Did one guy turn bad?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Definitely not the thread for you, not even the right thread considering that Batman/Superman is DC, not Marvel.  :P

But no, not really. It's basically a rivalry turned up to 11 because of ego and conflicting views on how a superhero should act and what morals they should value. That's about it. Looks pretty mediocre, I think.

She really is the perfect choice for Quinn. Great casting there. I'm interested in seeing the cast together and how Leto's Joke plays out. With what I've seen, I think he's going to perfectly embody the more comic-book oriented yet still dark and twisted version of Joker. People got so attached to Ledger's though, it's going to have to be very convincing. I'm warming up to his look and he's such a fantastic actor that I think he'll make me overlook or accept it.

Either way I'm gonna catch this one and I am waaaay more excited for this than BvS.
