'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice' Clip Is Dour And Grim, Surprise

I hope you’re ready for every movie ever to either involve dudes in tight who can fly, or punch through walls or whatever, or Star Wars, because that’s about everything that will be filling your local metroplex for the foreseeable future. Marvel and Star Wars are already in the running to be the biggest things ever, and DC is about to get in on the act, too, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though the movie doesn’t drop until March, we got a look at a fresh new clip.

This footage showed up during tonight’s episode of Gotham, which I tried to watch once but couldn’t make myself care about. There’s not a ton to glean from this, but it’s dark and grim and fits with the overall dour aesthetic that DC is going for. Batman (Ben Affleck) is chained up in a bunker in the desert, Superman (Henry Cavill) shows up, and, well, that’s all you get. But shit’s about to go down, that much is abundantly clear.

We’ve been told that we’ll see a new trailer on December 2 on Jimmy Kimmel Live. For the next few days, however, we’ll have to satisfy ourselves with this clip. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
