Over the weekend Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice released a new poster and a couple of new TV spots. You can check out the TV spots after the break. One of which contains the line I used in the title of this post. It’s only 30 seconds, but is cringe worthy. I know I may be the last of the converted, but I’m starting to have real concerns about this movie the more I see of it. (In fairness, the Bat-centered ad is not too bad.)
As for the poster, I think it points out another failure on the part of Warner Bros/DC. #whowillwin? Really? No one cares, and since this last trailer, I’d argue you could even change the title of the movie and remove the “v”. Hey, I know that two heroes meeting for the first time and fighting and eventually joining forces against some evil is one of the biggest tropes in comic books. And of course that’s what we all expected with this movie. But with the last trailer revealing said team-up (and adding Wonder Woman) to fight Doomsday, why even bother with the pretense anymore. The trailer even gives us the “conclusion” of their fight. Let it go WB/DC. #whowillwin? Not moviegoers by the looks of things. (I hope I’m wrong.)
In “some light at the end of the tunnel” news, Walking Dead alum Lauren Cohan has confirmed that she will play Martha Wayne in the film. I’m gonna guess it is a small, bullet hole filled flashback, but at least that is something to look forward to.
One thought on ““The Bat Is Dead. Bury It.” Ugh, Batsoup Looks Worse And Worse”
Pretty good cast. Perhaps they should have paid more attention to the script. That one line was painful. My main problem with DC characters anymore is that so much of the time they are angry and scowling. It seems overdone and humorless.
