In the past, YouTuber Adeel of Steel put together some great fan trailers, but he’s really outdone himself this time. Above is an edited, fan-made Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer incorporating the Man of Steel theme playing in the background. What is it that separates this fan made trailer from the officially released Batman v Superman trailers? The BvS trailers have a (bad) habit of focusing on Bruce Wayne/Batman’s perspective, where this fan made trailer really focuses on who Superman is as a character and as a hero. There are also points in the trailer where you can hear Russel Crow’s Jor-EL repeating what he told the Last Son of Krypton in Man of Steel which really drives home the message of the trailer. It was great, uplifting even, to see Superman regarded in such a positive light and not as a super-powered alien who might, after a bad day at the office, incinerate all of humanity.
“Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’ most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters March 25, 2016.
