'Batman v Superman' trailer leaks online
Warner Bros. will officially unveil its first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at IMAX theaters on Monday, but the internet had other ideas. A blurry, Portuguese-subtitled version leaked online Thursday night, and though it was quickly pulled from YouTube, it remains available to watch through other platforms.
The dark, grainy footage features voiceovers questioning the frightening new world order that’s been established by Superman’s presence on Earth, with a growing chorus—led by Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor—suggesting he’s a false god. (“Devils don’t come from Hell beneath us; they come from the sky,” Luthor warns.) But more importantly, we finally get to see—and hear—Ben Affleck in action. He wears a heavy-metal Batsuit to face the Man of Steel and sneers, “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”
Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The special IMAX events on Monday are still scheduled to proceed.
