DC Movies Podcast – Episode 8: Batman v Superman Final Trailer Talk


Did you catch the final trailer for Batman v Superman? Of course you did because you’re not living under a rock! We are so close to the film’s North American release on March 25, 2016. To say that your hosts, Rose Moore, Tony Kim and Chris Doucher are excited to finally see it, would be a massive understatement. The three DC Movies Podcast hosts waste no time in discussing their love of the two Turkish Airlines Visit Gotham and Visit Metropolis Super Bowl commercials. We also break down the fact that the decision to release a restricted home version of the film is actually not because of Deadpool’s theatrical success, but it certainly helps reinforce the decision as a good one. Seriously, there’s simply way too much to write here about our thoughts and reactions to the final Batman v Superman trailer, just go ahead and listen to episode 8 now. Enjoy!

Official Batman V Superman synopsis:

“BATMAN V SUPERMAN DAWN OF JUSTICE
FROM DIRECTOR ZACK SNYDER (“MAN OF STEEL”) COMES BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo”) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”) as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (“American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (“Unfaithful,” “Man of Steel”) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Man of Steel”) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the “Fast and Furious” films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers.

Snyder’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Larry Fong (“300,” “Watchmen”) and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (“300: Rise of an Empire”), and from his “Man of Steel” team, editor David Brenner, costume designer Michael Wilkinson and visual effects supervisor John “DJ” DesJardin. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “Man of Steel”) and Junkie XL (“Mad Max: Fury Road”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film opens nationwide in RealD 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters on March 25, 2016.”

    Most of the comics Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and Aquaman in the New 52 would actually be R-rated. Batman pretty much since the Killing Joke and DKR, Superman since Death of Superman in the 90s.
    The big difference is that DC and Marvel rate the comic themselves. They don’t even need to rate them. The MPAA is a lot more strict and most comics have the villain fo something that’s R/even NC-17 or the hero being super bloodied during the fight.
