Batman V Superman is still a few months away, but the marketing machine for the film is only getting started. Fox recently announced that a brand new sneak peek for the film would premiere tonight during Gotham and now it is online for everyone to see!
For anyone who thinks that sometimes film studios go too far when advertising their movies, it should be noted that the recent trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted online to 61 million global views in its first 24 hours while the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer received 112 million views in less than a day. I doubt this TV spot for Batman V Superman will get even half of those views, but regardless, Warner Bros. has a lot in stake and one can only assume we’ll be seening a lot more promotional footage over the next four months.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Jesse Eisenberg, and hits theaters on March 26, 2016.
Here’s the official synopsis for Batman v Superman:
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.
