Many film buffs are praising the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The first trailer for Batman v Superman released earlier this year was met with a mixed reception by the viewing public. While some believed that its darkness and intensity looked interesting, others thought it looked too grim and self-serious.
Luckily for Warner Bros., the new trailer released at Comic-Con on Saturday received a better reception. Trailer no. 2, which you can watch below, features a greater explanation of the plot and features most of the stars beyond just Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.
The trailer features some justification as to why Superman and Batman are fighting, with Superman becoming a threat to Earth due to his deadly actions at the end of Man of Steel. We see a few glimpses of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman as well as Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, who is truly reveling in his role.
Most of the reactions from fans have been positive overall, with some still skeptical. After all, it's one thing to produce a great trailer. It's another thing entirely for the movie to live up to the quality of the trailer.
Can't stop watching the #BatmanvSuperman trailer. I know "epic" is an overused word, but this is the definition of epic.

That #BatmanvSuperman trailer looks amazing… as a tease for an eight-episode miniseries. That's a whole lotta business for one movie. — Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) July 11, 2015
