Tomorrow may belong to Marvel with the theatrical release of Deadpool, however today everyone is talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The day began with the reveal of the official IMAX theatrical poster, which perfectly captures the severity of this epic confrontation. Just in case that wasn’t going to be enough to get you excited, they backed it up with the release of the “Final” trailer which provides the most revealing look at Zack Snyder’s depiction of Batman.
There’s something about this IMAX poster that is absolutely gripping, in a single image they’ve managed to capture the devastating magnitude as these gladiators go toe to toe.
While the trailer provides us with our first, real, glimpse of Batman in action.
Despite being an older Batman, than were accustomed to seeing on screen, he’s as hardened and gritty as if you’d taken him straight from the pages of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. The similarities between that storyline and Ben Affleck & Zack Snyder’s vision of Batman have been undeniable, however watching him tear through those thugs was like watching Rocksteady’s Arkham franchise come to life in live action… And I loved it!
All I can say, watch the trailer if you haven’t… And then tell me you’d rather see Deadpool. As soon as I can scrounge up the time, I’ll try to put together my reaction in full detail.
