Even though people are still complaining about WB/DC’s decision, a handful of people are beginning to warm up to the idea. Such people include Youtube user “solyenbrak1” who decided to put together a fake, but very impressive-looking Batman vs. Superman/Man of Steel 2 trailer. Using footage from works like Breaking Bad, Man of Steel, Daredevil, and many others, “solyenbrak1” pieces together a trailer that could be easily confused for the real thing.
“Solyenbrak1” had initially made a trailer with another actor in the role, but recently stated that he’s warming up to Batfleck. Here’s the trailer below:
The most captivating thing about the trailer is the potential conflict it is setting up. WB/DC made it no secret that they were looking for an older, more experienced
Batfleck Batman and it made people think that because of this, Batfleck Batman would have been crime-fighting way before Superman crashed onto the scene. In light of this, with Metropolis (and possibly the rest of the world) dealing with the results of his intergalactic-level show down, Superman would be gaining probably a lot of enemies (I.e Lex Luthor and all) and Batfleck Batman would probably be on that list.
If they go that route, which I’m hoping they do,
Batfleck Batman could easily beat some knowledge and perspective into Superman. He could explain to him why he should’ve been smarter about his ‘god-like’ powers and he could also truly explain the magnitude of what he did in Metropolis.
For example, while most agree that Man of Steel‘s fighting scenes were pretty top-notch, a lot of people also agree that the amount of carnage and destruction easily made it reminiscent of a Micheal Bay movie. So, imagine all the people that (
probably, but actually though) died. This needs to be addressed, it has to be addressed, and Batfleck Batman is the perfect person to address it. Otherwise, most of us will definitely be giving Zach Snyder and David S. Goyer the side-eye if they choose to ignore it.
I’m still skeptical of Batfleck, but if, in about a year or so, the actual trailer looks anything like the fan-made trailer we just saw, I will probably be drinking less and less of my haterade.
Until then, however, I will continue to happily drink that sh*t.
