Wonder Woman Steals the Show in New Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer

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:

    It seems pretty obvious that Diana will only appear as Wonder Woman in the climatic final fight of the movie, so I wonder what her role in the rest of the movie will be? My guess would be that she is primarily involved in the parts of the movie that serves as setup for the Justice League movie.

    Sorry to squash your hopes, but I believe Amy Adams confirmed that she will not share screen time with Gal Gadot when she was asked about Wonder Woman in an interview a couple of months ago.

    I love the trailer and look forward to seeing it. I question the wisdom of essentially setting out the entire plot in the trailer. I think that is a risky thing to do. It is too soon to release so much info on the movie so far away from the release date. It is still 6 months away which is a lifetime in internet hype/life.
    On the other hand, the recent Civil War trailer revealed most of the plot as well, but people kind of knew it already anyway from previous teasers and by way of inferences from the comic book proper.
    Also, I find it odd that it keeps getting referred to in some circles as a ‘teaser’! My god, if that is just a teaser an actual trailer will be as long as the movie itself. Lol.

    This is just another case of someone being negative about things that aren’t exactly as you wanted them. The song “You can’t always get what you want” from The Rolling Stones is so applicable to today’s hipster era. Heroes fighting heroes is played out? So they shouldn’t do a Batman VS Superman movie? I’m seeing countless comments on Youtube from people saying they’re upset the whole movie isn’t going to be just Batman VS Superman. You just can’t please everyone. Man angst? Batman is an angst filled character. The DC world in general has tons of man angst. Sigh. I’m just going to start avoiding reading comments about this movie now because everyone nowadays is just so negative about everything.

    I’m very torn. It bothers me way more than I expected to see Wonder Woman standing there in what is basically a loin cloth –while the two men are fully clothed. Gal is beautiful but her legs are so, so thin. I just..I want to not care about this stuff but I don’t relate to this woman at all.:/.
