Ever since the first “Batman V Superman” footage sent fans into a frenzy at San Diego Comic-Con last summer, people have been wondering when Warner Bros. will reveal the first trailer for the film to the public.
We’ve heard rumours for a while that the trailer would be attached to a few different Warner Bros.’ films ranging from the final “Hobbit” movie to “Jupiter Ascending.” Those releases have come and gone, and we’re still without some new footage of the Caped Crusader and Supes.
Well, it looks like the trailer is finally coming to theatres in May.
Collider is reporting the “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer is “absolutely” playing in front of Warner Bros.’ next big release “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
After speaking with a few sources, I’m happy to report the first Batman v Superman trailer is on the cusp of being released. I’m told it’s absolutely attached to all copies of Mad Max: Fury Road, which is an obvious place for it to debut seeing as how Mad Max is WB’s first big movie of the summer. What I’ve heard is that Warners isn’t sure it wants to release the trailer while Avengers: Age of Ultron is destroying records and driving all social traffic during the end of April and early May. If they wait until the weekend Mad Max opens on May 15th, Avengers will have already been out for two weeks and they can take over the conversation at a time when everyone is ready to talk about Batman and Superman. The bottom line is: we will absolutely have seen the first Batman v Superman trailer by May 15th.
This sounds about right.
The first teaser trailer for the last Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises,” debuted a year out before its release in July 2012.
With “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” in theatres March 25, 2016, marketing for the film should start to pick up this summer before it kicks into high gear.
DC Comics recently released the first image of Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s nemesis Lex Luther a year out from the film’s release.
We expect even more at San Diego Comic-Con this July.
