Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gets the Honest Trailers treatment
Since the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was clearly a matter of time before it got the Honest Trailers treatment — and the time has come.
Screen Junkies doesn’t hold back about the film — which they renamed “Fans v Batman v Superman v Critics v Other Fans v Executives v Zack Snyder v Expectations: Can’t Do Them All Justice” — criticizing the DC sequel for “leaving audiences with a cool new Batman movie, trapped inside a boring convoluted Superman sequel, trapped inside whatever cartoon Lex Luthor is from.”
And in the Batman vs. Superman debate, Screen Junkies comes down on Batman’s side, praising Ben Affleck’s superhero as “part cross-fit bro, one part Superman, one part Tony Stark, one part Arkham video game, and one part actual bat. The actor we all assumed would be the worst part of this movie is by far the best part of this movie.”
The trailer is less forgiving when it comes to Superman, and to the film’s plot. Watch the video above, and click here to see Honest Trailers’ Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition, which takes on the film’s extended version.
