New BATMAN V SUPERMAN Teaser Features a Showdown of Unhappiness [23 Screenshots]
No one would blame you if you missed the new Batman v Superman teaser that aired during Gotham this evening – the series is a painstakingly hollow reminder that there is better Batman content in this world. So for those of us who did not tune into Fox, Warner Bros. was kind enough to upload the video to the Internet; as one would to get their content seen. Just a sneak peek of what’s to come, this short 50-second teaser sets the tone of one of the biggest cinematic showdowns in history.
If the brooding shown in the Batman v Superman teaser wasn’t enough, this short clip of the Dark Knight facing off against the Big Blue Boy Scout only serves as a prologue to the second official trailer, which will have its worldwide premiere during Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, December 2 at 11:35/10:35 pm CST.
It’s hard to get a read on the situation between the two DC titans without context. From what I can gather, based on the previous trailer we’ve seen, Batman (Ben Affleck) is captured by Superman’s SWAT team and then taken to Supe’s (Henry Cavill) underground lair. Why Superman is so pissed off at Batman we’ll have to wait and see. Maybe Clark and Bruce have a kinship and he feels betrayed. What will this big unmasking mean for the two heroes? And who are the Superman loyalists in riot gear?
There hasn’t been an official plot synopsis released for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice yet, but we can surmise, based on the Comic-Con trailer, that Batman is really pissed at Superman and sees him as a threat to humanity. There’s also Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) who is scheming per usual, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) shows up for some reason, and Zod’s body is in a plastic bag. Cool?
I’m still not entirely impressed with the whole confrontation. My inner fanboy should be geeking out hard, but because Warner Bros. hasn’t built up the mythos of their DC Cinematic Universe I don’t have any f*cks to give. If Zack Snyder and Co. can establish a good argument as to why the Batman needs to take down Superman along with setting up Affleck’s iteration of Bruce Wayne, all within this one movie, I will be greatly impressed.
I think my feelings about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice can be summed up best in LEGO Batman’s hit song, “Untitled Self Portrait”:
THE OPPOSITE OF LIGHT!!!
IN THE BASEMENT
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
BLACKED OUT WINDOWS

The movie is set to release in theaters on March 25, 2016.

Now Available to Own: Inside Out, Vacation, The End of the Tour, and More
Brace your bank accounts, it’s time to see what’s Now Available to Own for the week of November 3, 2015. Every Tuesday we run down new movie and television releases that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home, as well as some slick deals that can help save you some coin. New on shelves this week are Inside Out, Toy Story that Time Forgot, The End of the Tour, and more.
Movies on Blu-ray
Inside Out (Pete Docter and Ronaldo Del Carmen) Rated PG [94 min] – After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.Starring Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Kaitlyn Dias, Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Lewis Black, and Phyllis Smith [Watch the trailer]
One of the most emotionally fueled movies of the year, literally, Inside Out proves Pixar still has a lot of amazing original story ideas left in their brain trust. It’s a fantastic exploration of the mind through colorful characters and impeccably crafted visuals. All of the special features on this disc consist of a ton of juicy tidbits that make the experience even more inspiring. A new short furthering the story of the characters, “Riley’s First Date,” is really cute and proves that these two features actually warrant the necessity of a sequel. The deleted scenes puts into light the importance of editing and storytelling because Inside Out would have been a completely different movie with the way they originally conceived Joy. Inside Out is by far one of the best uses of your time this year.
Special features include:
- Riley’s First Date? (In-Home Exclusive Animated Short Film)
- Lava (Theatrical Short Film, Presented in 2D & 3D)
- Story of the Story
- Paths to Pixar: The Women of Inside Out
- Mixed Emotions
- Mapping the Mind
- Our Dads, the Filmmakers
- Into the Unknown: The Sound of Inside Out
- The Misunderstood Art of Animation Film Editing
- Deleted Scenes:
- Riley Grows Up
- Joy’s Decline
- Audio Commentary
- Mind Candy
- Inside Out Trailers
Toy Story That Time Forgot (Steve Purcell) Rated TV-G [22 min] – It’s a post Christmas play date and the toys have to go up against the fearsome and aggressive new dino toys. Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Kristen Schaal, Kevin McKidd, Emily Hahn, and Wallace Shawn
This has to be one of the best short films Pixar has made so far in the Toy Story universe. It has a lot of heart, the new toys are hilarious, and the little world created for this short is well thought out. In these seasonal, longer shorts, Pixar is putting more emphasis on secondary characters. In Toy Story of Terror it’s Jesse, and here in Toy Story That Time Forgot it’s Trixie. These bite-sized shorts bring a lot of joy to my face and I hope they continue making them.
Special features include:
- Toy Story Goes to Comic-Con
- My Unexpected Friend
- Battlesaurs Animated Opening
- Deleted Scenes with Intros & Outros:
- Battlesaurs Christmas
- Light of Play
- Prisoners of Bone
- Trixie’s Proposal
Vacation (John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein) Rated R [99 min] – Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons. Starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Skyler Gisondo, and Steele Stebbins
Vacation adds fuel to the fire in that it proves we need to stop creating comedy sequels years past their predecessors. Happy Gilmore is a wonderfully entertaining movie, and the idea of developing a sequel is groan worthy; exactly how I felt every minute watching Vacation. The jokes are terribly eye-roll inducing and the characters are all moronically hardly resonating. The best thing Vacation has to offer are the various cameos.
Special features include:
- Return to Walley World
- The Griswold Odyssey
- Gag Reel
- Deleted Scenes
The End of the Tour (James Ponsoldt) [Limited] Rated R [106 min] – The story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace, which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, ‘Infinite Jest.’ Starring Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Anna Chlumsky, and Mamie Gummer
I’ve never read any of David Foster Wallace’s works, but after watching The End of the Tour a foundation of interest has been built. The dynamic between Eisenberg and Segel is absolutely incredible to watch because the their interactions on screen feel wholeheartedly organic. I was hanging on every word the two exchanged as if I was watching magic happen before my eyes or a debate I actually cared about. In this characterization of Wallace himself, as portrayed by Segel, the author comes across as a very layered and complex individual and I’m now intrigued at how his persona would be carried into his writing.
Special features include:
- Audio Commentary by Director James Ponsoldt, Screenwriter Donald Margulies, and Actor Jason Segel
- “Behind the Tour” Featurette
- A Conversation with Composer Danny Elfman
- Deleted Scenes
Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas (Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh) Rated TV-G [43 min] – An elf leaves the North Pole to find his dad, who is on the naughty list. Starring Mark Hamill, Jim Parsons, Kate Micucci, and Ed Asner
I’m not entirely sure who thought remaking Jon Favreau’s Elf into a stop-motion animated film with Buddy, but it was completely unnecessary. The live-action Will Ferrell movie is already enough of a children’s movie to be fun for all ages, and choosing Jim Parsons (CBS’s The Big Bang Theory) as the voice for Buddy, in a musical nonetheless, was a poor choice too. Buddy’s already kind of annoying with his child-like humor and by giving him the voice of Jim Parsons makes him unbearable, especially when he sings.
Special features include:
- “Elf-in’ All The Way: Inside Buddy’s Recording Sessions.”
Batman: The Complete Third Season (1966–1968) ( William Dozier, Bill Finger, and Lorenzo Semple Jr.) Rated TV-G [30 min] – The Caped Crusader battles evildoers in Gotham City in a bombastic 1960s parody of the comic book hero’s exploits. Starring Adam West, Burt Ward, Alan Napier, Neil Hamilton, and Stafford Repp
The original Batman series starring Adam West is all about fun detective high jinks. There isn’t any overarching plot threads, it’s not very serialized, and all of the characters maintain their surface level comic roots. The third season boasts some pretty good episodes if you’re a collector.
