Fresh from its appearance at Comic-Con 2015, check out the new trailer for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice!
It’s dark, it’s portentous, it features a grim Martha Kent telling Clark he doesn’t owe the world a thing – and Zod in a body bag! It also features the first real BvS action and a (brief) look at Wonder Woman in action.
It almost makes Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy look positively cheery. Follow the jump for the almost four-minute explosion of Zack Snyder superhero madness. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 16, 2016.
After someone in Mexico posted a pirated copy of the Batman v Superman trailer, DC and Zack Snyder responded by making it available online in its full, in focus, deeply dark entirety. Check it out after the jump.

You never know what you’ll find on YouTube. Today it’s a four-minute video of Bruce Wayne being a hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
