Trailer: Man of Steel, Huh? Superman Meets Batman's Fist. Then, This

A still from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The final trailer of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as Batman and Superman. Here's what happens when man meets what is apparently a god: against the Batmobile, Superman wins - but then he meets Batman's fist. Man of Steel, huh? What's Batffleck made of then?

An ageing Batman versus an ageless Superman - the first a skilled and fearsome fighter but incontrovertibly human, the other an alien of both moral conviction and physical invulnerability. An unequal fight, one imagines, but that's the beauty of reel life, logic need not intrude into the sort of narrative thrust that is often so sadly lacking in real life. The short version is this - the final trailer of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has been released and it pits the two giants of the superhero canon against each other with unexpected results.
In a world that is grappling with the sort of 'hero you deserve vs hero you need' conundrum that formed the fulcrum of the Christian Bale trilogy of Batman films, Superman is viewed with suspicion and alarm and a grizzled and apparently slowed-down-by age (the thugs he beats up won't agree) Bruce Wayne takes it upon himself to return to the suit and confront the perceived threat.

Dear world, keep calm and carry on.
The final trailer of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as Batman and Superman. Israeli actress Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman, the extent of whose role is being kept a state secret with minimal screen space in the trailers; Jesse Eisenberg makes for a sinister Silicon Valley-type Lex Luthor; Jeremy Irons is Bruce Wayne's butler, Alfred. Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne return as Lois Lane, Martha Kent and Perry White while Holly Hunter joins the cast as a ruthless US Senator.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is a sequel to 2013's Man Of Steel and releases on March 25.
