So this leaked on Thursday night, after the Star Wars trailer dropped. Warner Bros. eventually just gave in and released the trailer online, after making plans to introduce the trailer to special theaters.
You’ve probably already seen the leaked teaser from SDCC from last year (although WB has been pretty thorough about deleted it), but this is far better. If you haven’t seen it (I’d be surprised if you haven’t), do check it out.
One thing keen-eyed viewers may have noticed is that it makes Superman out to be almost a tyrant-like God, with people worshiping him as such. There’s even a shot of a swat-like team with the Superman shield on their shoulder plates. I think this is purposely throwing us off. I don’t foresee the Superman they created for Man of Steel, who was raised by Martha and Jonathan Kent, to be capable of ruling the world like the Kryptonians wanted to. It’s also being made to look purposefully very dark, with Batman apparently willing to kill – Again, I feel this is a red herring to get us talking.
