New ‘Batman v Superman’ Clip Released Online, New Trailer Coming Soon

Those of you watching Gotham on FOX Sunday night were treated to a special sneak peek of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now that very clip has surfaced online for those of you who may not be into Gotham, or were waiting to watch last night’s episode on your DVR like I usually do. The newly released clip is definitely interesting to say the least. Check it out:

With less than a minute of footage there really isn’t too much here to analyze. The clip begins with Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) seemingly waking up after being knocked out. Finding himself chained up and helpless he is confronted by a very angry-looking Superman (Henry Cavill), who has his own soldiers there to fight by his side. As a grimacing Superman walks closer to Batman we do see some fear in The Dark Knight’s eyes, which surely implies he’s aware of how much of a threat Superman really is to him. Afterwards Superman rips off Batman’s mask, revealing Batman to be Bruce Wayne.

So, three things we can definitely take away from this clip is that Superman has an army, which was already implied in previous trailers, he now knows Batman’s secret identity, and he is extremely angry for some reason. Either that or Superman is being mind-controlled, which I think is most likely. There is a scene in the last trailer which showed Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor wave his hand over Superman’s head, implying he may have some sort of control over him.

While this clip definitely doesn’t give us much at all, it’s still nice to see a full, clear shot of Affleck’s Batman mask fully lit and in motion. He truly does look like Batman, more so than any other actor before him. Also, that trench coat is pretty sweet.

Overall, this clip is probably not enough to to sway the naysayers who aren’t looking forward to Dawn of Justice. I can’t say this clip got me any more excited than I already am, and I’m someone who is definitely looking forward to this release. The good news is a brand new full trailer will be revealed Wednesday, December 2 at 11:35/10:35 CT on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Until then what are your thoughts on this clip?
