i am more excited for this movie then any other upcoming movies now

GigawattConduit1450d ago

I feel like this movie elevated my hopes while also having me increasingly worried because Doomsday looks kinda rough and this trailer gave away about 90% of the movie.

frelyler1449d ago

to be fair, this story at some point has been done. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman take on global threat. This is not high level story telling that requires thought and a large IQ. Through the comics and cartoons if you are or have been a fan, there was never going to be a story that surprised you. This is a live action take on a story that has been done many times, the essentials anyways. Unless you are new to the fan train, then it would be silly to say the movie gave away the plot. Hell the plot is in the freaking title. Come on people, it is meant to be mindless fun and an escape to another world. When did people forget that?

Porcelain_Chicken1450d ago

Right there with ya!! Looks a lot more different than what the other trailers made it out to be!

-Foxtrot1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

Lol what have they done to Doomsday and good grief they've made Lex out like Jom Carreys Riddler

Zod as Doomsday though...

Why spoil it though, most of us knew sure but no we all know why they team up and how

Porcelain_Chicken1450d ago

Spoil what?!? The fact that they team up to face a greater threat was revealed in the official synopsis months ago! I did sorta think of Riddler aswell. It's definitely a mask. Nobody would suspect tiny awkward Lex is a criminal mastermind behind the scenes. It's something I always wondered about the comics and toons, everyone believed he was a shining white light when he had the face and attitude of Satan himself. I always wanted them to try and hide it some more, like the way Bruce plays up his playboy lifestyle as a cover. This seems like they took that idea and ran with it lol, but I'm still excited to see how it turns out. I hope he can be a real prick when he needs to be.

Doomsday kinda looks like Abomination from the MCU. A bit disappointed there.

-Foxtrot1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

Yeah but to actually spoil it. It's one thing to look at a rumour and go "Oh gee that makes sense, we'll have to see" and then actually seeing it in a trailer.

The focus should have been on the fight between them, DoomZod should have been that twist you know is coming but you are so occupied with the on going fight that you don't really think about it.

Now it's Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman vs Doomsday

DC...changing things for the sake of it. They should have learnt from Marvels mistakes.

Porcelain_Chicken1449d ago

Except it wasn't a rumor lol. It was in the OFFICIAL synopsis...

"Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis' 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."

Read that last line again. Only few enemies can do that. With that we knew that fan faves like Metallo and Bizarro and pretty much every Batman villain was out of the question. Leaving Darkeid and the heavily rumored and leaked Doomsday. I know exactly what you are saying and to an extent I agree but let's be honest we all knew this already lol.

Also what do you mean by learned from Marvel's mistakes?!

-Foxtrot1449d ago

"a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before"

That could be anything. Lex Luthor could even be classed as that threat, maybe in his mechanical suit or something. Not like it actually says "a new threat, which is Doomsday created from or actually is Zod". You don't even have to rule other villains out because it's a synopsis, even the smallest villain could be made out to be a threat.

By mistakes I mean the fact that, despite not being their fault, they could have created a Universe which sticks more to the source material because they need to change it...they didn't have to involve Zod with Doomsday. Wouldn't you have liked to see Ultron in the Avengers created by Hank or Spiderman be in the main team during Phase 1, because DC owns everything they could have done something Marvel couldn't, comic book films better adapted.

Porcelain_Chicken1446d ago

I don't mind the connection between Zod and Doomsday. In the animated series every Kryptonian carried the Doomsday gene. Lex ended up creating Doomsday from that. So it isn't it's own thing completely. If I'm being honest though I don't like Doomsday THAT much. He's a walking plot device. Just like Hulk. Except Hulk has Banner. As for universal worldwide threat, most villains CAN pose a huge threat but bigger than Zod and the Krptonians AND the world engine from Man of Steel?! No way. Very few can fill that slot.

I see what you mean and I agree completely. I was kinda pissed that Ant-man and Wasp were substituted for Hawkeye and Black Widow. I don't mind change in fact I welcome it so long as it's for the better but some things should definitley stay the same.

mahmoods261450d ago

This looks horrible. WTF

I thought after seeing Civil War this trailer would at least try and match it but this is... ewwwww. What have they done??

Gezmoyassine1449d ago

I agree and why the heck did wonder woman join the fight?.It's Batman Vs Superman not Batman Vs Superman Vs Wonder Woman.Personally,i will be skipping this movie..

Porcelain_Chicken1446d ago

"It's Batman Vs Superman not Batman Vs Superman Vs Wonder Woman."

So perceptive. Nothing gets by you lol. Black Panther joined Civil War yet he isn't in the title, EVERYONE RUN!!!

acemonkey1450d ago

Wow. WTF, WB/DCU cracks jokes ( looks like its not that dark as everyone thought it was going to be, from this trailer) Lex sounds fucking annoying, Doomsday WTF i dont care if people are like its not his final form and giving away alot of stuff) this movie is a little ways away i wonder how much more stuff they are going to tell. They should have let the Comic con trailer be the end of it. I know people that didnt want to see it after that trailer now this one.

Yes Batman and Superman ( the trinity will be on the big screen for the first time its epic)

Aldous_Snow1450d ago

So Lex is Frankenstein and created his monster (Doomsday), from Zods corpse? Not impressed by that at all.

I sound like Foxtrot.

1000 lashes!! 😯

-Foxtrot1449d ago

What...You sound like a realist instead of blindly falling into hype, lies, PR stunts and the like

Gee...that makes you a bad person alright ¬¬

uncharted561449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

They changed the whole fkin premise of civil war so why is doomsday's origin such a big deal and we don't even know if that rumor is true yet. Kryptonite comes into play too and we don't know how Lex knows about it.

-Foxtrot1449d ago

Because Civil War has to be changed...they don't own all the characters

No Fantastic Four and no X-Men puts a huge hole in that and many of their stories. The change is totally justified.

DC owns all their characters and should learn from Marvels mistakes

uncharted561449d ago

Then maybe they should not do the civil war storyline then instead of changing it...using the same logic. But I do agree that Doomsday could look more menacing, needs more of that exterior skeleton bones coming out esp on face. I do agree that changing Doomsday's origin would be stupid but tbh we don't know if that is indeed the case or not. may be they recovered Zods body to examine for weakness and thats where kryptonite comes in
