Not just one, but TWO new Batman V Superman TV Spots courtesy of the film’s friendly sky-flying partners at Turkish Airlines.
The first spot advertises recently offered Turkish Airlines flights to Gotham City, an industrious locale described by the narrator as, “A city that’s risen above its past to become a thriving urban center.” Cut to Bruce Wayne who offers explanation while striding confidently from building to limo, stating, “Thanks to a significant grant form my company, Wayne Enterprises, Gotham is being restored to its former glory.”
Apparently, Bruce Wayne is trying to apply a fresh coat of paint over a city where there are, on average, 1500 shootings every fifteen minutes. Or something like that.
Can you guess the other location recently added to Turkish Airlines’ ever expanding destination list? That’s right; Metropolis, a city described by the narrator as, “A city reborn, rebuilt and stronger than ever. Proud of its heritage and its heroes (cue the appearance of the “Superman-as-Atlas” statue and a perfectly timed Superman fly-by).”
And now we have Lex Luthor at the podium; he’s in the midst of a Lexcorp-helmed conference and assuaging the nervous press with this bold declaration: “Thanks to Lexcorp’s substantial contribution, Metropolis is now open for business.” Let’s not forget; Metropolis was smacked around recently during Superman’s building-melting melee involving one General Zod. The pothole situation in Metropolis is now no longer a concern since…well, Metropolis is now one big pothole.
Debuting March 25, 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne. Oh, and probably a lot of unhappy citizens caught in the crossfire when Superman and Batman indulge in a pee-pee contest.
