I know there are a lot of doubters, but this fan-made teaser trailer for Man of Steel 2 might be enough to quiet the Batfleck haters.
The trailer, which teases Ben Affleck as Batman and Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor by splicing together footage from Man of Steel, The Dark Knight, Breaking Bad, State of Play and Daredevil, is just a spoof made by YouTube user Soylent Brak 1, but it’s a pretty promising indication of how good Zack Snyder’s Superman sequel might actually be when it hits screens July 17, 2015.
“Look at you,” Cranston says in the trailer’s opening voiceover. “What have you got in your life? Nothing… Nobody. Oh wait, yes.” And then the scene flashes to an image of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane.
Luthor promises to stop the attacks against Gotham (I could be wrong, but I think that’s from Total Recall). Then we hear Affleck’s Batman: “Justice doesn’t discriminate,” he says in a line lifted from Daredevil. “It comes cold and bracing, leaving you with a chill you can’t shake.”
It’s not “King Lear,” as Matt Damon said in defence of his pal, but this trailer is certainly proof that Affleck – and Cranston – might make Man of Steel 2 one heck of an impressive comic book movie.
