Warner Bros Unveil A New Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer
WB Pictures revealed the 2nd trailer for this highly anticipated superhero epic, in case you managed to miss it here you go… And all I can say is WOW! Anyone that’s been on the fence about Batman V Superman, this trailer is going to knock you clear off onto one side or the other.

The Suicide Squad Comes To Life In The First Trailer
WB Pictures also revealed the first trailer for The Suicide Squad, this trailer is clearly going to answer a few of the questions we’ve all been asking. Unfortunately Warner Bros has yet to officially release the trailer, I’ve only been able to find poor quality cell phone recordings of it before they’re being pulled down due to copyright infringement. However after the Batman V Superman trailer leaked just days before the IMAX screenings, WB officially released it… I can only hope the same will happen with this one.

Just in case you’re wondering, Jared Leto steals the trailer when he appears on screen as the Joker.

UPDATE
Here’s the official trailer in HD…
