Hello, once again! Now, the latest Batman v Superman trailer was released around two weeks ago and was mixed received. Some people like it, others say it spoiled the movie. Now, how it spoiled it I have no clue since the title is called ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ meaning it’s a film building up to the ‘Justice League‘ and the Trinity was shown in magazine covers from promotional reasons. We knew that the Trinity would appear since Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman and of course Affleck as Batman. We knew this in 2013. There were some theories and rumors of a second villain in the movie besides Lex Luthor. Sure, when Batman and Superman first meet, they don’t get along. They both have their differences. Although they fight each other at first, in the end they must come together to combat a greater threat than they can imagine. There were so many theories as to who the second villain would be and I’m so glad they finally revealed who it was in the second trailer. People say it could be Doomsday, Wraith, or Subjekt-17. I say it’s Doomsday since he can give the Trinity a run for their money. Doomsday isn’t a character who has development, emotion, etc. His sole purpose of creation was to give DC characters a challenge when it would come to a fist-fight. Furthermore, Doomsday evolves over time. If you kill him once, you can’t kill him the same way twice! Is it possible that we could see Doomsday more than once in the DC Extended Universe? Anyway, enough of that. Onto the show!
Reason #1: World’s Finest
This will be the first cinematic appearance of the superhero duo. We have never seen these two characters together in live-action cinema. Sure, some people are skeptical of how the end product will turn out but nonetheless the general audience and comic book fans alike will flock to the theater to see these two heroes duke it out in a fight then team up for the greater good.
Reason #2: Wonder Woman
Besides the film introducing us to Batman and Superman, this movie will mark the first cinematic appearance of Wonder Woman on a big budget Hollywood movie! The reason for this to be a landmark are two main reasons: Fans have been waiting decades for Wonder Woman to make her first movie appearance and many people who look up to female superheroes are ecstatic to see her in action. Wonder Woman is a female icon so it makes sense for her appearance to be all that great.
Reason #3: Villains
We know that Lex Luthor is going to be introduced in the film and make his introduction with a full set of red hair just like in the comics but there were rumors of a second villain. Who could the other villain be? Many fans wondered if the villain was going to be a Batman villain to help the DCEU expand its horizons and have Superman deal with a Batman villain. Others wondered if the villain was going to be a Superman villain so the end result would be catastrophic in the sense of destruction. The most logical answer was a Superman villain seeing as how his most famous villains are equal or greater than him in terms of might. Who could unite the Trinity than an unstoppable force such as Doomsday? We’re very interested in seeing the epic fight between the Trinity and Doomsday on-screen.
Reason #4: Justice League
This film is only the second film in the DCEU but what it’s doing is setting up the Justice League. With rumored cameo appearances such as The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman either as Barry Allen/Wally West or Victor Stone, we’re sure to see them sooner or later as the full title of the movie is ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ meaning this film is helping unite the seven. Ever since Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ came out in theaters, we’ve been wondering when will we see the Justice League in a big budget Hollywood film. I’m saying that due to that made for TV film we got in the 90’s. Now, a new era has ushered in Hollywood with superhero films dominating the industry, it’s not wonder we’ll be seeing these many films coming out and we’re certainly excited to see the Justice League film set to release in 2017!
Reason #5: DCEU
That’s right! Everyone is curious to know how the DCEU on the big screen will turn out to be. We’re already going to start the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and everyone is wondering how the DC movies will be. Of course we as fans of superheroes, comics, and movies are very pleased with the idea we’ll finally be getting a full dosis of superhero flicks in 2016 starting with ‘Deadpool’, then moving on to ‘Batman v Superman’ the movie which has caused much discussion and is the topic at hand here. With great shows currently on television, we’re glad to finally see more of the DC Universe being expanded onto the big screen and see in which direction these films will go in. That’s all I have for today! There could be more reasons or other reasons as to why ‘Batman v Superman’ will be a hit but these are my personal top five. Do you agree with my list? Are you excited to see these films? Let me know in the comments below!
