I’ve been seeing this fan-made trailer for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel, aka the untitled Batman/Superman movie around the Interwebs for a few days now. I think it’s okay, but it didn’t really floor me, but apparently it got a lot of tongues wagging and lots of people really like it, so I thought I’d go ahead and post it and let the rest of you decide for yourself.
According to the guy who edited it together, he was already halfway done with the trailer when Warner Bros. officially announced that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman to Henry Cavill’s Superman in the movie. It’s a good thing, then, that there are plenty of Affleck movies laying around, including the much-maligned “Daredevil”, which I still contend was a decent superhero movie. Not great, mind you, but considering the utter superhero crap that was coming out around the same time as “Daredevil”, it had its moments. (Then again, maybe I was just mesmerized by Jennifer Garner’s ridiculous zero body fat throughout the movie. Who knows?)
They’ve also spliced in Bryan Cranston, who has long been rumored to be playing Lex Luthor. It would be a major coup if they got Cranston for the role, and his “Breaking Bad” shaved head certainly makes it a no-brainer. Of course, whether Malcolm’s dad wants to commit to what will no doubt be a major recurring character, is anybody’s guess.
So what do you think of the fan-made trailer?
