Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to hit theaters in a little over a month, and the frenzy of anticipation is ramping up. A number of different trailers for the movie have been released for by now, some more spoilerific than others, and no doubt there will be more marketing efforts to come in the next few weeks.
While some fans have complained about the amount of footage that has already been shown from the movie, and others have gone so far as to create alternate, spoiler-free trailers of their own, that is not going to stop Warner Bros. from pushing the movie as hard as they can. In fact, there will be at least one more full-length trailer before the movie drops.
This information comes courtesy of CBM, who made note of a new trailer classification for the movie. The trailer is set to clock in at 2:12 and is rated PG, and the fact that it’s been classified indicates that it could be with us very soon.
Along with news of the trailer comes the above banner, which was posted to the official Batman v Superman Facebook page. The banner features the now-familiar sight of Batman and Superman staring each other down, with a fair amount of lens flare added for effect. Fan reaction in the comments is overwhelmingly enthusiastic, with much of it revolving around the question that the film’s producers are hoping audiences will want to go to the theater to find out the answer to: who will win when the Caped Crusader takes on the Man of Steel?
While it’s not confirmed that the newly-classified trailer will air during the Super Bowl, the timing of the classification certainly points in that direction, and Warner Bros. is not likely to miss the opportunity to hype the film in front of one of the largest TV viewing audiences of the year. The question now is what, if any, new footage the trailer will bring, and if that footage will lead to more outcry from fans who don’t want spoilers but still feel compelled to watch each new trailer that the studio releases. Either way, Screen Rant will keep you updated when the trailer hits.
