Comic-Con 2015: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Panel

Most people are probably still recovering from the mind-blowing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justicepanel at yesterday’s Q&A session – especially considering the explosive new feature-length trailer that launched.

Since director and visionary Zack Snyder starting releasing snippets of the upcoming DC Universe blockbuster, people have wondered what the catalyst behind Batman’s hatred for Superman – though people have enjoyed speculating their own take on it, the exclusive new trailer finally explains it all.

Stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot and Jeremy Irons took to the stage at the packed-out Q&A panel in San Diego to discuss all the juicy details that fans have been dying to know. Instead of telling the intricate details of the movies plot, Zack Snyder and the cast thought it be be more fitting to show it.

Check out the exclusive feature-length trailer below:

The most import piece of information we’ve been lacking has always the reason why Ben Affleck’s Batman developed such a hatred for Henry Cavill’s Superman – and the answer is a lot simpler than first thought.

Turns out Superman’s city-destroying escapades with General Zod in Man of Steel (2013) resulting in the destruction of one of Wayne Industries skyscrapers, killing innocent employees as Bruce Wayne himself could only look on in horror.

Batman v Superman will be all about retribution – good verses evil, but who’s on which side?

Along with the developments regarding Batman and Superman, the trailer also gave us a first look at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luther, who is clearly more of a sociopath is this envisioning than those that have gone before. Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman character also featured during the trailer, though her story and involvement in the saga is still unknown – we do however know that she will play a crucial hand in Bruce Wayne’s story.

If we took anything away from yesterday’s Q&A panel it’s that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is going to take superhero blockbusters to a whole new level. See it in cinemas worldwide from March 25, 2016.
