Video: ‘Batman v Superman’ trailer now out – see it here

Second trailer hyping upcoming battle between the Caped Crusader and the Blue Boy Scout a little heavy on bombast. But what’s not to like about Wonder Woman?

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2015 – After the initial trailer was released earlier this week, a bigger, flashier trailer for the upcoming DC superhero flick “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is now out.

By all accounts, this new film is something of a riff on the final volume of Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight” series of graphic novels, which feature an aging Batman returning to the fray to confront a Superman who seems to have become a tool of an oppressive U.S. government. In this film, however, Superman becomes widely distrusted, causing Batman to dust off his bat ears and cape and figure out a way to confront him.

Ben Affleck has been Warner Brother’s controversial choice to replace Christian Bale as Batman. He’ll oppose Henry Cavill, who returns as Superman. Intriguingly, Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot (great name!) will also be making an appearance in this film, which promises to start working the crossover magic that has made TV’s “Arrow” and “Flash” such a pair of hits. Justice League, anyone?

So, here’s the latest trailer:

Here’s a new scene (what’s with the trench coat Bats?):
