Packing over three minutes of dark, superhero action and an immeasurable amount of content to pour over, it’s fair to say that the collective DC fanbase is still reeling from Comic-Con’s appropriately monumental trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
As a film trailer, it was excellent; but what sold many a moviegoer was the jet-black tone of Zack Snyder’s rendition, as the filmmaker sets out to bring three of the most iconic characters in comic book history to the silver screen like never before. And today, we’ve got a hoard of images from the new trailer that offers up a play-by-play breakdown of the footage in question – from Gal Gadot in action as the Amazonian Queen to Jesse Eisenberg as the leering Lex Luthor – and there’s quite a bit to digest.
Hot on the heels of these stills was a new Comic-Con-themed poster for Dawn of Justice, which pits the two titular titans head to head. Again, we seen Supes and Bats brawl in the most recent trailer, where the latter was equipped with a more armored version of his famed suit. In fact, that’s not the only suit that Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader will be sporting in his tussle with The Last Son of Krypton, as another desert shot from the clip unveiled Batman wearing armor reminiscent of the one seen in Gotham by Gaslight. Check out both of those below.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will hope to ease the grand DC cinematic universe into motion when it arrives on March 25, 2016.
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s 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.
