The last time we heard about a possible theatrical trailer for the highly-anticipated Man of Steel sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, was just a few months ago, when reports surfaced that stated it’d be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. As we all know, however, the closing chapter of the Middle Earth saga came and went without such a look at the epic showdown between DC’s flagship heroes, but we may still get the chance to see a teaser sooner rather than later.
Latino Review’s El Mayimbe has taken to Twitter to report that the trailer will instead be attached to Warner Brothers’ first big film of 2015: Jupiter Ascending, which hits theaters on February 6th:
So #BatmanvSuperman teaser trailer drops with JUPITER ASCENDING next month. Finally.

Mayimbe has a proven track record for comic book film-related scoops, but he isn’t always right, so take this news as merely a rumor for now. It’s an exciting rumor, of course, but one that’s currently unsubstantiated.
While many had theorized that we might get a Batman V Superman teaser a few days earlier, during the Super Bowl on February 1st, attaching the trailer to their own film is a smarter move on WB’s part, as a 30-second Super Bowl ad costs about $4.5 million dollars. Plus, this may be a great chance to drive people to the theater to see Jupiter Ascending, even if they end up leaving before the delayed Wachowski sci-fi pic begins.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016. It stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Holly Hunter, Tao Okamoto, Laurence Fishburne, Callan Mulvey, Scoot McNairy and Jason Momoa.
