A brand new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiered last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and most of it isn’t particularly good. Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne are being snippy at each other, Lex Luthor is annoying, Superman and Batman fight it out, and Doomsday looks kind of terrible. Plus the trailer gives away basically the entire plot of the movie, unless they’ve got some clever twists up their sleeve. I feel like I could write a fairly accurate synopsis of how everything is going to go down at this point (Batman doesn’t like Superman because of the destruction in Metropolis, they fight, Luthor eggs them on, then sends in Doomsday, Wonder Woman shows up, they all team up to beat Doomsday and Luthor). And, like the dreary Man of Steel, it’s all very bleak and drab and joyless.
Then Wonder Woman shows up, and it gets AWESOME. The dumb boys are all busting each other up and then Doomsday attacks them and they’re like “OH NO!!” But then Wonder Woman comes in looking all cool with her shield and totally handles the situation:
And the boys are awed by how rad she is and inspired to team up, Justice League style:
Yet again, Wonder Woman is in a Batman v Superman trailer for all of three seconds but, yet again, they are the best three seconds of the trailer, BY FAR. I have very little hope for the rest of the movie; none of the characters feel right, heroes battling heroes is played out, and oh my lord the man angst. But I think the few scenes with Wonder Woman could be fantastic. Gal Gadot looks fierce and awesome. I’m not anticipating that she’ll be in it a lot, but everything we’ve seen so far looks ridiculously cool. Here’s hoping for a Lois Lane team up, too! If Wonder Woman and Lois get to do something fun together, I might forgive the movie for it’s stupid looking Zod/Doomsday hybrid thing.
Here’s the full trailer if you’re interested. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is out on March 25, 2015. It’s not looking like it’s going to be very good, but WONDER WOMAN, you guys. WONDER WOMAN:
