After all of the build-up and promise, the newest Batman v Superman trailer exceeded all expectations and won over the audience at Comic-Con (although, Deadpool and Suicide Squad were also major crowd-pleasers).
It was intense, dramatic and we needed to lie down after watching it thirty-six times. It also revealed three interesting things about the film:
Robin is dead
There’s a scene where Bruce Wayne enters his modern-looking Batcave and looks at the Robin costume, which has “HAHAHA JOKE’S ON YOU BATMAN” spray-painted on it. It’s pretty obvious from that scene the Joker has most likely murdered Batman’s famous sidekick. The question is, which Robin was killed? Was it Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne or Carrie Kelley? It does look like it is a male costume, though, and if Snyder is following cannon it should be Jason. This leads us to the next big reveal…
The Joker might make an appearance
The spray-painted Robin costume. The blood red ‘YOU LET YOUR FAMILY DIE’ over the newspaper article about the Wayne Tower destruction. The signs are all there that we’ll be getting an introduction to the Joker before his appearance in Suicide Squad. It’s pure speculation at this point, but the signs are promising. Perhaps this film will explain how he got his Jaws-inspired smile and silly tattoos.
Wonder Woman will fight
We were promised the appearance of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman, but did anyone think we’d actually see her do battle? Not only are we going to witness Batman and Superman slug it out like two monsters, but we’re also going to see Wonder Woman throw her godly strength into the mix and lay the smackdown on someone. Let’s say it together: THIS IS BEYOND AWESOME!
