Countdown To 'Batman v Superman' Event: Trailer Reaction

Aaaaand we're back! -- You know, after watching the first Batman v Superman trailer 10 or 100 times.. we lost count.

Uh huh.. and the excitement is far from over, as we count down to Monday's IMAX screenings across the U.S. and Canada. Especially, after director Zack Snyder revealed more new footage is on the way!

If you are among the lucky fans who are attending the IMAX event, here's what you're reportedly in for (spoiler alert). Just keep in mind, those plans were likely tweaked after the leak. Now back to the trailer, did you catch the Easter egg? -- Oh man, that bleeding reference makes us nervous :/

lol.. we love you guys. Also while watching the trailer 20 or 200 times, we couldn't help but think of how much work went into making Henry look like that iconic image above. 

Of course the costume was the amazing work of Michael Wilkinson, who told us what a pleasure it was to work with Henry. 

But it was also Henry's intense training under the guidance of Michael Blevins, who just exclusively talked to us about Henry's determination when preparing for his superhero role:

Henry is always looking to better himself, he wants to do bigger and better. It's not such a matter of, "I can get away with whatever because I've proven it once" -- It's coming back to be either stronger in reality and more fit in reality and looking better in reality, so that when it's proposed on the screen, it comes across that he's better and bigger and he's learned. 

Don't miss Part 1 and Part 2 of our interview with Blevins, where he shares a lot of cool details about Henry's transformation into Superman

The reaction to Henry's new look as Supes was immediate, with fans clearly loving him in the trailer.

Bloggers loved the trailer too!.. and shared some details you might have missed, thanks to those "chiseled Cavills."


At any rate, we’re pleased to announce that the 133-second clip has everything: your bestubbled Afflecks; your chiseled Cavills; your low-slung Batmobiles; your weird voiceover cameos from Charlie Rose and Neil Degrasse Tyson (and was that Tobey Maguire we heard?); your glowy-eye Batman suit; and of course, your many sundry and varied ’splosions. What it doesn’t have is a glimpse of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. Still, we’ll take the baby steps; there’s still more than a year to go before this thing hits theaters and the DC Cinematic Universe takes off in earnest.


Just like BeyoncΓ©’s self-titled 2013 album, the trailer to “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” popped up out of nowhere last night (April 15), and for the first time since the film was announced we see The Dark Knight and Man of Steel together sharing the same cinematic screen. The trailer to the Zack Snyder-directed film was originally intended to arrive on April 20, but seeing as how this is the digital era — a time when just about everything fails to go as planned — we got it early.

Den of Geek:

In case you missed the internet crack open like the fiery pits of Apokolips, the new Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer is here, and it is quite the serious affair. Never before have fans seen the Dark Knight and Man of Steel share the same screen in live-action, but this trailer delivers exactly that plus plenty of clues for what to expect from the 2016 superhero grudge match. -- Continue reading -->> SPOILER ALERT territory.

Screen Rant also did a great job breaking down the details of the trailer and what was revealed. Their post is a MUST READ.

But it all comes back to the fans, and this Trailer Reaction Mashup pretty much sums up what we already knew: Batman v Superman is gonna be the movie of 2016!

We're headed to our IMAX screening on Monday, and we want to hear from you if you're going too!

So please tweet us/Instagram us/reach out on Facebook with your pics and reaction to the trailer, or leave your thoughts in the comments section. We're all about the support for Henry, and want you to be part of the conversation. Go Superman!


  1. ok guys maybe you can help me out! I am awful at finding those Easter eggs, is it the rockets that Superman is holding? and I agree as if Batman would win against Superman!

    1. Yes, you can't see it clearly, but it's the number on the rocket according to cinematographer Larry Fong. It's a nod to '300.' -- The articles we linked also mention a few interesting details in the trailer that provide clues on the storyline. And we're gonna let Batman think he can beat Superman.. we all know the truth ;) #noway #nohow

    2. People seem to forget Batman has 0 power and Superman has infinite power. Nothing can destroy Superman only kryptonite which was all destroyed when Krypton disintegrated. Where is Batman going to get kryptonite to beat Superman since its the only thing that can kill Superman. Good luck Batman, RIP!

  2. thanks so much guys! Batman can think he's got it that's for sure but as Superman fans (and Henry fans) We know who will win that one! and thank for being a positve blog about Henry! Can't wait to see this and can't wait till U.N.C.L.E.

    1. Thank you for your feedback and Henry support, we really appreciate it.

  3. you are most welcome :) looking forward to all the great stuff you guys will have in the coming months as things start to get busy for Henry! can't wait!

  4. You think Henry will show up at any of the screening? How awesome would that be..
    I just viewed the trailer, it's insane. I'm a bit nervous here, it's crazy how your favorite comic characters come to life on screen. Everyone has done a great job, Zacks , cast, crew, artist, costumes designers, makeup, everything. It looks amazing can't wait.
