‘Batman Vs. Superman’ full-length trailer drops: this looks really stupid, right?

wenn23232978

For the love of all that is holy, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice looks like an exquisite mess. To be fair, I’m sure it will make billions. But can we all agree that this kind of stupidity should not be rewarded? Ben Affleck stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to debut the new full-length trailer for Batfleck Vs. Charisma Vacuum and… ugh. First, take a moment to enjoy these photos of the Batfleck’s current face. I’ve long suspected that the Batfleck has gotten some minor stuff done in the past, like hairplugs, teeth capping and perhaps some Botox here and there. But is it just me or does his face look REALLY different? Like, is this Botox? Is it fillers? Is it something else?

As for the trailer… here you go. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of dumbness.

My biggest complaint about the movie is built into the trailer. Superman COULD kill the Batfleck at any moment. Superman is an alien with enormous power, strength, whatever. The Batfleck is just a rich douche with lots of toys. If Superman wanted the Batfleck to die, it would take him two seconds to do the deed. So why build it up over the course of two camera-flare-tastic hours? That was sort of my problem with Man of Steel too – we’re supposed to care about Superman’s internal struggle and all of his FEELS about General Zod when literally, he just needed to kill Zod and be done with it, for the good of the world. They’ve made Superman into Hamlet, basically, unable to make up his mind about how to deal with genuine threats.

As for the appearance of Wonder Woman… I’m not feeling it. Nor am I feeling the Batfleck’s laughable Batfleck-voice. It’s like he’s doing a terrible impression of Christian Bale’s Batman voice. But Affleck-as-Bruce Wayne? I actually don’t mind that at all. Previously, I was intrigued by Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, but I’m not really feeling him in this trailer.

Also – we still haven’t seen Jason Momoa’s Aquaman at all.

    Sweet Jesus, this looks terrible. The best part is Wonder Woman and even that’s a stretch.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I best thing about this trailer is the appearance of the fabulous Holly Hunter and Jeremy Irons.

      Though, I have to admit as much as I don’t like his actual personality, Eisenberg seems to be a great Luther.

      Marvel, give me some Black Panther, STAT.

      • V4Real says:

        As silly as it looks I’m going to be there opening night advance screening. I was finally glad to see WW and she looks better in motion as oppose to the still shots. I hope it doesn’t suck but this movie and Civil War already have my money.

        But there is something about Dawn of Justice that seems rush. I think the original plan was to have the sequel to Man of Steel and then build up to The Justice League. Unfortunately The Man of Steel didn’t do the kind of numbers they wanted it to do. It did quite well but they were looking for IM3 numbers. With that not panning out they jumped ahead and rushed it and went straight to a somewhat Justice League movie. They didn’t have the time for that gradual build up that The Avengers had where they were able to introduce several of the main character slowly. Civil War makes sense because Marvel had time to simmer up to it and not throw everything on the fire at once.

        Still I’m excited to see both films.

      • jammypants says:

        Eisenberg looks like an absolutely terrible Luther. He comes off as more of The Riddler.

      • antipodean says:

        I only have three things to say about this overblown mess: Jeremy Irons, Jeremy Irons, and Jeremy Irons!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        V4Real, Civil War already has my $$ (as well as Strange & Panther); I’ll be there for the Thurs night sneak peak. I’m holding out hope that WW could be the best thing about this mess of a film. I’ll always hold a torch for Lynda Carter. She *was* Wonder Woman for me and my hero.

        Jammy, Jesse makes me want to punch his face, so I considered that a victory! :-)

        antipodean, we can never have enough Iron in the fire. I may have to watch just for him. Tho’ I’ve been a fan of Hunter since Broadcast News, so I was thrilled to see her too.

      • antipodean says:

        @Nutballs, I agree Hunter is luminous, and I have loved all her work since The Piano, and before. Her work on Saving Grace was savage and brilliant. I have to think that if these two greats (Hunter and Irons) are involved, it can’t be all bad. However, it may also be just because they fancied a little bit of rough in a blockbuster, and after all there is still the rent to be paid when all is said and done. Thessies are often like that, and why not? Cue Sir Ian.

      • FLORC says:

        Jammypants
        He does seem like the riddler a lot more than Lex. That was my impression and I had to tell myself he’s absolutely suppose to be lex luther.

        The whole thing seems like it’s watchable, but not going to be terribly entertaining. I’m going with friends. I have a feeling because I do love the comics and various universes this will be like reading the book and then seeing the movie.

        And WW is a stick. Muscle mass must be more dense in her universe for amazonian style goddesses. I’m already cringing at the amount of cameos they had to cram into this movie where Superman could easily end Batfleck. Yet Batman still comes at Superman like he has a chance at taking him down.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Michael Rosenbaum did a great Sexy Lexy on TV’s “Smallville”. I’m a sucker for Superheroes but this looks a bit turgid…

    • funcakes says:

      I wish the boy’s club would invest in a wonder woman batgirl movie. Sick of seeing the same sausage fest.

      • FLORC says:

        Supergirl got more epsiodes ordered and WW movie is already into filming.
        The sausage is Chris Pine so that should be hot. She is his type too so get ready for hook up rumors.

      • V4Real says:

        “She is his type too so get ready for hook up rumors. ”

        So you’re saying she’s a reality star or swimsuit model because Pine has dated those types of women before. The only actresses I knew him to date were Beau Garrett and Olivia Mum. Gal at least might have some kind of career now if WW takes off. She was also pretty popular with the F&F fans.

        I went from crushing on Pine, to not liking him so much to right back with a huge crush on him. If the movie sucks at least I get some eye candy.

        Oh yeah and those hook-up rumors are probably just waiting to be printed. And damn, she’s married.

      • funcakes says:

        I’ll be waiting. :-)

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        Yep, Gal is married so I hope the hook-up rumors (and you’re right, they’re bound to appear in print) won’t last long or be taken seriously.

        And I ‘absolutely’ agree with you about Chris Pine. Eye candy for certain, but his voice just ‘shatters’ me … in a very, very good way. LOL! I may be the only female alive who needs a fan while watching the animated film “Rise of the Guardians,” in which Chris Pine is the voice of Jack Frost. :)

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @Florc, who wrote: “The sausage is Chris Pine so that should be hot. She is his type too so get ready for hook up rumors. ”

        Yes, he does seem to favor tall, svelte brunettes. I really like Gal. I’ve been a fan of hers since seeing her in “Fast and Furious” (the fourth film in that franchise).

        I’ve loved Chris Pine and his sausage since seeing him in the 2006 film “Blind Dating.” I didn’t watch him in his very first film, the 2004 “Princess Diaries: The Royal Engagement,” until 2008 (after seeing “Rachel Getting Married”) because Anne Hathaway bugged me in the “The Princess Diaries” film. I now love Anne as well. :)

    • Miss M says:

      I thought wonder woman was the best part too! Hahaha
      Ps: is this Lex Luthor or the joker? ! Terrible…

      • V4Real says:

        I agree with you guys. Jesse presented more like the Riddler or The Joker.

      • Miss M says:

        In my mind I thought Riddler and said the joker. Thank you for the reminder… But I guess the Joker works too. My Lord, he’s God awful! hahahahahahahaha
        This is going to be the most cr@ptastic Batman movie. Oh wait, it can’t be worse than the George Clooney one… or Can it?

    • Jay (the Canadian one) says:

      Re: Wonder Woman being the best part… While I agree, I imagine if Superman, Batman and Lex all only showed up for three seconds and didn’t say a word, we’d be more excited about them too. In other words, there’s no good potential that bad writing can’t ruin. I’ll try not to get my hopes up.

    • CooCooCatchoo says:

      Sounds like Affleck is trying out an upper-crust Bostonian accent. Very stiff chin, Thursten Howell III. Bruce Wayne be a rich-ass playa.

      • CooCooCatchoo says:

        Okay, but I gotta say: I love that Affleck supported Detroit during his stay there. I’m from Southfield (where his son played one afternoon at a activity center), my girls and I started hanging out in Royal Oak as teenagers (great shops, bars, theaters and restaurants), and he bought two domestically made autos (Ford and GM). That’s pretty cool. Detroit is pretty cool, y’all.

  2. LadyMTL says:

    “Batfleck vs Charisma Vacuum” I am honestly laughing my a*ss off at that. This entire thing looks like a hot mess; not even Wonder Woman can save it.

  3. nicegirl says:

    Aquaman, please. Love me some Momoa

  4. MexicanMonkey says:

    I was a little excited about the movie. A little. The first trailer actually looked quite good. But this looks like a mess, not only did they pretty much give away the entire plot line, it just looks stupid.
    And Eisenberg, just.. No.

    • funcakes says:

      Yeah, he obviously took an easy paycheck to pay his bills this time. He use to be so likable now he’s unbearable. This entire cast look like the studio’s last option because bigger and better stars decided to opt out.

    • Katydid04 says:

      I agree with the mess part. I watched the trailer and my only thought was, “what is this movie about?” I guess two super heroes trying to kill each other? Yeah, count me out.

  5. clover35 says:

    I liked it. And to be fair, “Charisma Vacuum” does say he could have killed him (Batfleck) if that’s what he wanted to do. So… there’s that.

  6. Gina says:

    Don’t care, I’m there!

    • karen2 says:

      ….me too unless the reviews are really terrible…afleck looks absolutely fine…

    • D.Prince says:

      Oh HELL yeah! I don’t give a pigs fart how other people who don’t want to see it…are not being forced to see it…but want to crap on it at every opportunity feel about it.

      OH, HELL YEAH!

  7. Amelia says:

    Did someone order a Ham sandwich?
    It’s probably going to be as silly and melodramatic as it looks, but I reckon I’ll still see it in a theatre. I know I’m in the minority, but I actually really enjoyed Man of Steel, even if they did go massively overboard with the Jesus iconography (looks like they will here, too. The only thing Superman’s missing is a chorus of fat little cherubs.)
    Also – why haven’t we heard WonderWoman speak, yet?

    • oliphant says:

      I liked man of steel too! and came away from it with a huge crush on Zod :)

      • FLORC says:

        Zod was hot. No shame.

        MoS fight scenes made me bored. Like transformers fight scenes in Marky Marks film it dragged on too long with SFX that were too camera jerky. Fight scenes made by computers cannot carry a movie.

        Amy Adams imo was the best part of that trailer.

      • V4Real says:

        Michael Shannon saved that movie.

      • Thermal says:

        The interesting SF made MOS half watchable. I liked the alien spaceship hidden in the north or south pole and the weird little flying robot guards in the ship and the visualisation of the alien planet. The rest? Nah. The same old tired stuff.

        You should see The Iceman if you haven’t seen it already.

  8. Bishg says:

    Who had the mind-blowing-ly bad idea to replace the greatness that was Bale’s Batman with Ben Affleck’s chin?? And I can’t overlook his wooden expression and overall lack of acting skills!!
    I am not a fan of Henry Cavill but at least his interpretation is somewhat believable.
    This is going to suck.

  9. oliphant says:

    I quite liked the bit at the beginning of the trailer where they’re bitching at each other….any film where i end up shouting ‘KISS HIM’ is a plus in my book…but then it just degenerates into a big mess. Hopefully its a case of the trailer looking bad but the film being good.

    • Pinky says:

      Hahaha!

      Jesus Christmas Christ, this looks abdominable.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

    • FLORC says:

      LOL!
      There’s such tension in their stares. I cannot wait for the youtube videos of this.

  10. Naya says:

    You should slap a spolier alert on that trailer. You watch that, you just watched the entire movie. God what a cliche by-the-numbers plot!

    Basically, comical Lex engineers situation that makes Batfleck decide to kill Superman. Meanwhile politicians debate dangers of vigilantes and space God creatures. Superman, the boy scout, cant bring himself to crush Batman. Lex tries to push his hand by summoning that other Kryptonian monster whose name I forget. Superman and Batman pair up for good. Wonderwoman has probably been tracking the intergalactic monster, shows up just in time to save Batman. Aquaman shows up at some point. Big fight set piece. End. Thank you for your dollars.

    • isabelle says:

      Well the good thing we know how awful its going to be and can save our dollars for much better flicks.

  11. Mia4s says:

    Dear Marvel and DC,

    I enjoyed doing my superhero trilogy and am glad you appear to have really enjoyed it too since BvS and Civil War are both being trailered as deadly serious and visually dark/grey. However, I’ve moved on, and wish you would too.

    Love, Christopher Nolan

    P.S. Jared Leto looks stupid.

    • Bridget says:

      Jared Leto usually looks kind of stupid, though. I’m assuming he was styled and coached within an inch of his life for his Oscar run.

      I can’t believe Jared Leto has an Oscar.

    • Josefina says:

      Hm, I think it’s unfair to lump Marvel in there. Captain America is their “serious” franchise but all of the others are pretty self-aware of their cheesy popcorn-ness. That’s why I love Marvel and pretty much hate DC.

  12. CK says:

    I enjoyed everything in the trailer that didn’t have to do with the massive bro fight between superman and batman or lex Luther so pretty much just Wonder Woman’s shield, Amy Adams, the flying creatures and Doomsday, who apparently evolves during battle. I’m going to give the film the benefit of the doubt though and assume that there is a bit more built into the central conflict that gets left out in favor of action scenes. I think that this film will probably be more exposition than face punching and a change of pace could be nice with the current superhero onslaught.

  13. Kate says:

    Somebody save Amy Adams from this dreck.

  14. H says:

    Dear God…no. They’ve ruined my all-time favorite superhero, Superman. And this Lex Luthor? WRONG casting. Bad, bad, bad.

  15. Livvers says:

    Re: Batface, I’m not discounting all the potential manipulations you list, but in this particular case, I think the answer is a close shave and some sort of facial peel/cold laser/whathaveyou. It’s not so much his face changing shape but that his skin actually looks surprisingly healthy for the first time in 3(+) years?

    • Naya says:

      Watch the Kimmel appearance. Were it not for his very distinctive chin, he would be unrecognizable. Heavy botox, imo.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      No, he’s already being called out the plastic surgery community as having had lots of injections and that he’s needs to stop – NOW!

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Yes, that’s my take too — he looks waxy, but not physically different. I think he’s had a peel, maybe the subtlest of injections. Tom Cruise kind of has the same thing going on right now.

      And it’s a pity, because there’s one shot that’s been released from this movie where Affleck is holding a child and looking up (while Superman wrecks the city), and you can see all the fine lines around his eyes and mouth. He looks older, yes, but in a good way. His face was developing character, without him looking any less handsome for it, and I think he could have worked with that.

  16. Hazel says:

    It’s hilarious. Kudos for DC for shifting their focus towards making comedy, maybe that will save us all from Adam Sandler.

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Right? This looks so OTT it’s like satire. And the dramatical music, oh my!
      Isn’t the market totally over-saturated with films like this by now?

  17. InvaderTak says:

    Marvel sabotaged this right?

    • teacakes says:

      you know, they wouldn’t even have to lift a finger since Snyder, Affleck & Co sabotaged it all on their own.

      • FLORC says:

        Snyder from the moment the ink dried on the contract was the only nail needed in this mess. That man should be banned from any and all Comic book to big screen adaptations for life. I guarantee you WW will be on her knees infront of a male foe atleast a handful of times in her own. He’s like a Michael Bay mini me who hasn’t the acceptance of his limitations known yet.

      • Josefina says:

        This. Wanna make sure your movie will suck with absolutely no chance of redemption? Hire Zack Snyder.

        Michael Bay makes awful movies but he knows his audience, that’s why, unfortunately, his movies make truck loads of money. Zack has his share of flops and his hits aren’t that big, either.

  18. Josephine says:

    I think it’s hard to make a movie about Superman in this day. He’s always been a bit too straight-laced, and folks seem to like their super heroes a bit darker, snarkier, and more complex these days.

    • teacakes says:

      That’s what they said about Captain America.

      And look at what Marvel did with that one.

    • Abby_J says:

      I actually disagree with this only because Marvel has proven time and time again (correctly) that what those of us who love superheros really want are snarky, funny movies that, while they may have very serious moments, don’t take themselves so seriously.

      I think it is one of the reasons Marvel does better than DC usually. DC does dark and broody Batman, and Marvel’s like ‘Whatever….Here’s Iron Man drunk and DJ’ing at a party.”

      I find most of the DC movies exhausting in their desperation to be edgy. They are good, but give me the Avengers or Ant-Man any day.

      Now, I do agree about it being hard to do Superman that way, only because it has already been done with Christopher Reeve in the 1980′s.

      • Josefina says:

        I’m sorry, this will sound a bit creepy but… I kinda want to marry you right now. Can’t agree more. Marvel pokes fun at itself all the time, and that’s why I love them. Nolan’s Batman trilogy was good but SO pretentious. You’re a rich guy in a latex costume with weird shaped toys, dude. You’re funny! Stop being so serious!

      • Abby_J says:

        Hehe. Thanks. Maybe Lilacflowers can host the wedding. :)

        I realized after I wrote this though, that I am a bit of a hypocrite, because while everything I said is true, I absolutely adore what Marvel has done with Netflix. Daredevil (which is one of my favorite comics anyway) is brilliant, and there are not words for how much I loved Jessica Jones. Neither of them are really campy at all. Maybe I can handle dark and broody better in small doses?

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Only straight-laced in the movies. In the comic books he was edgy, rough, and killed alot of regular men – wife beaters, gangsters, conmen, etc. and had no problem offing someone he deemed the world better off without. Only later, he specifically vowed to never take a human life if at all avoidable. I wish someone would do a Superman movie with the real Superman’s personality. I would love to see wax figures of his past friends and family in his Fortress of Solitude as in the comics, because he was a lonely man who had to remain in solace in order to maintain his identity. In that sense, he was solemn and surly. He was not a smiling happy guy. He was dark and complicated. Not as dark as Batman, but close. Batman was just a hater – no excuses, unabashed. And I loved him for it. Sorry, comic nerd here.

    • Naya says:

      I think his near indestructability is also part of the problem. Here you have an all powerful being who does the right thing, so wheres the suspense?

  19. isabelle says:

    That is once of the worst big budget trailers I’ve ever scene…..but it being Zack Snyder no one should be surprised. Jesse Eisenburgs acting looks godawful. Actually had hopes after the first teaser trailer. Affleck looks hot there is that.

  20. Mam says:

    I was lost when I heard that awful voice coming out of Batfleck!! What the heck! They lost me there.

  21. Mgsota says:

    Kaiser…you took the words out of my mouth. My husband and I have debated about Batman. He likes him. I say he’s just a rich dude with toys. My husband hates that Superman is so powerful but struggles with killing the bad guys….to which I say, he was raised as a regular human so that’s probably why he’s not a killing machine.

    And no, we are not really super hero dorks, but these are conversations we’ve had. Lol

    We both loved the Bale movies. That should have been it!

    I like REAL Super Heroes, like the Hulk! Indestructible!

  22. Lindy79 says:

    I’m fairly certain my cats could make a better looking trailer

    One of them would have probably done a better job at Lex Luthor too.

  23. claire says:

    I don’t think he looks that different in a way that would mean surgery or fillers – more like he didn’t binge drink that day, washed his face, brushed his hair and shaved.

  24. Vesta says:

    Tom Cruise or Bradley Cooper must have given him the number of their “beauty salon”. Baffleck has the similar puffy pinkish glow.

    • funcakes says:

      When I saw the first picture of Affleck all I noticed was that humongously smooth forehead.
      Isn’t Batman and Superman suppose to look weathered and worn out from constantly being in battle from having to save the world insread of fresh face Calvin Klein model?

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Yes! Look what stress did to Clinton’s face during his presidency. But not regular dude Batman! He’s stretched, smooth, puffy, and pink. I thought he really liked the wrinkled pink. Sorry, couldn’t help myself. That trailer got me feeling punchy.

      • funcakes says:

        It’s all good. :-)

  25. Kym says:

    I’m so happy that Joaquin Phoenix allegedly passed on Lex Luthor because now exactly 0% of me wants to see this movie.
    My brother will be in his glory, though.

    • Ankhel says:

      Joaquin Phoenix? As Lex Luthor? That’s a movie I would’ve paid to see.

      As it is, I can’t see a single redeeming quality to this trailer – not even WW. Her “tough” pose looks like bad constipation, I actually laughed, and her skirt is a motherf..ing loincloth. Aquaman had better be near naked, and smiling. Why can’t anybody just smile?!

  26. Abby_J says:

    Batfleck is the worst idea ever. Seriously, who thought this was a good idea? He looks horrible and sounds horrible. Did these people NOT see the abomination that is Daredevil? Thank goodness to Netflix for their amazing job righting that terrible wrong.

    I’m going with Team Lex here only because I think it will be fun watching him go crazy.

  27. ninal says:

    All I know is that Ben’s face is as smooth and waxy as a piece of plastic fruit. What the hell is going on with his face?

    And the trailer seems like a spoof-these two leading men are laughable in a post-dark knight world.

  28. Plain Jane says:

    Did anyone read the blind item on Lainey yesterday about the herp allegedly getting spread in Detroit by a big movie star last summer? Apparently, there’s a lawsuit brewing. Batfleck might want to rethink running around in a Detroit jacket …

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Ha! I thought the same thing. Like he’s advertising “I gave somebody The Big H in The Big D!” Duuuhhhh….

      • DodieTn says:

        Blind Gossip has the actual court document regarding the case. He is either a idiot for wearing that jacket or is loving the drama. It is too obvious it could be him but then I was curious if Tom Brady was in town too since one outlet says actor and one says celebrity. Either way this movie is a mess.

  29. Tiffany says:

    I love you Michael Shannon and Amy Adams, but I will have to sit this one out. I’ll catch you on the next one.

  30. The Original Mia says:

    What a ridiculous trailer. It’ll make money for sure, but this is a piss poor response to the Marvel juggernaut. Introducing Doomsday so soon in the series reeks of desperation. Ben looks old, fat, bloated and his Batman voice is laughable. I was underwhelmed by Wonder Woman.

  31. Nance says:

    The trailer has too much spoilers, I prefer the first one when it’s just Batman versus Superman, not Batman teams with Superman and Wonderwoman against another vilain. It could have been a surprise, whatever.

  32. Wait so are they doing the “no one knows that Superman is Clark Kent because he puts on glasses”……..?????

    • Abby_J says:

      Those glasses are an amazing disguise. Haha. :)

      I agree it is totally stupid but it does pay homage to the original movie Superman from the 1980′s. Really the comics too.

  33. JenniferJustice says:

    Geeze Ben! Lay off the fillers already. Botox around the eyes. Botox around the mouth. Botox in the forehead. Hair plugs. Keep it up and you’re going to look like Courtney Cox and Meg Ryan. I have this awful feeling he’s going to get pec implants. Somehow I feel like I know this. He’s going to read one nasty post on a thread like this that calls out his moobs and I’m telling you, he’s heading straight for the surgeon’s office.

  34. DesertReal says:

    As long as the movie captures the darker dramatic tone that Man of Steel kept aiming for (but managed to miss most of the time) it has potential. At any rate, it’ll be as good as it can be with a woefully miscast Batman. To write it off as silly simply because it’s not your cup of tea, is a bit dismissive though. Just sayin’

  35. LAK says:

    His face has been freaking me out for months. What has he done to it?

  36. Farhi says:

    Affleck is horribly miscast. Batman is supposed to be from a privileged family of politicians. That means polished, sophisticated and entitled to some extent. Bale’s acting was exactly on point.
    Affleck is anything but polished. He looks like a frat boy in a Batman costume.

    • Thermal says:

      I thought Val Kilmer was the best Batman. And comic book adaptations can only be campy on film, so those reboots were far better than the Nolan and this one, because they didn’t take themselves seriously at all.

  37. als says:

    Are they selling it as a comedy?

  38. snusnu says:

    Oh my god why arent more people commenting how bad Lex was? Like seriously? Jesse Eisenberg looked totally out of place! It looked like a bad Joker impression.

    Doesn’t look any dumber than a Marvel movie, and those aren’t exactly art films.

      Agreed. The trailer is godawful, but I will still watch the movie. I think (hope!) that it will be nowhere near as bad as that trailer makes it look.

  40. Ms. X says:

    @Rhiley: I see what you are talking about re: makeup. Is it possible that he came straight from a movie set and just left the makeup on? (I hope.)

  41. Lauren says:

    I don’t think I’ll waste my money on this.

  42. Jag says:

    So many bad impressions in this movie. I totally agree that he’s playing the Riddler or the Joker, instead of Lex Luthor. Batfleck’s voice is awful, and I don’t like a bloated Bruce Wayne.

    That is supposed to be Wonder Woman? She couldn’t even win a Xena lookalike contest!

    I have no hopes for this movie. I will watch it on Netflix if ever it gets there and I’m bored.

  43. Bluebear says:

    At first I was thinking, “this isn’t so bad”. But about one minute in I was actually thinking about all the things I would like to get done when cleaning my house today. When I caught myself smiling because I was thinking about sweeping the bathroom floor, I realized this trailer really does suck. Im not kidding.

  44. minx says:

    I’m biased–I hate all the comic book movies, going all the way back to the original Batman, Superman, all of them. Just not my thing.

  45. Merritt says:

    Just no. Affleck does not convey wealth the way Bruce Wayne needs to.

  46. Thermal says:

    Posing is just so substantial these days and it passes for acting. That troll is copied straight out of The Fellowship of the Ring.

    Ben looks pastier and his hairline is definitely higher than when he was younger. Add the bloat, and discomfort with the controversies of the past quarter and you get this.

    Haters gonna hate.

    • L says:

      With what it costs to see a movie, the amazing television readily available, and internet pirating being a thing, people are entitled to only want good movies. The people behind this at every level don’t appear to have done a good job, and no ones here to reward them for that. People have different preferences but the comments here are mostly along the lines of actual critique. If that makes us haters sign me the eff up!

  48. Camille says:

    Lame and terrible. Will avoid this like I did the last Superman, Avengers etc crap.

  49. kristin says:

    was michael rosenbaum busy when they were filming? eisenberg looks awful as lex luther

  50. Patty says:

    That looks awful. And I don’t mean in a so bad it’s good. It just looks bad, very bad. Can somebody please take over this DC Comics business. And watching that trailer confirms two things for me: 1) Affleck is all wrong for both Bruce Wayne and Batman and 2) It’s too soon after the Nolan trilogy to be rolling out a new Batman. All I could think while watching the trailer was the many ways it would have been improved with Bale instead of Affleck.

  51. JoJo says:

    Something is very wrong in the eyebrow area. That’s where I notice he looks totally different.

  52. Cyn says:

    Wtf did he do to his face?!?

  53. raincoaster says:

    I think it’s an eye lift. It has that jarring effect where you can’t put your finger on it, but it’s definitely something weird. And definitely peels or laser resurfacing to give him that fine pored look.

    I said over on Dlisted that it looks like Eisenberg was doing a “Fran Lebowitz on coke” impression.

  54. Ankhel says:

    I feel a warm little flush inside because of CB animatedly discussing Marvel and DC on a grand scale these days. You are awesome!

  55. JoJo says:

    The hair too – slicked back and dark. Doesn’t look right. He looked better with his salt and pepper hair and a beard. But I guess the new hair look is for his movie.

  56. Blackbetty says:

    I didnt know this movie was going to be a comedy?!

  57. Sar says:

    They just gave away the ending of this movie. Obviously something worse comes along and they all have to work together. Seen the whole movie now.

  58. wizzill says:

    Doomsday looks ridiculous!!!!!

  59. NeoCleo says:

    “Hair-plugs??” I have never seen Affleck’s hair look anything but awesome. No way that man is losing his hair. Having said that, his face does look different but then again he was suffering from some down-time bloat before he started back to work.

  60. Mgsota says:

    Take a hike LadyJane if you don’t like CB. And you’re dead wrong on a lot of accounts.

    This is a gossip site! Are you new here? Because I can tell you who Celebitchy likes/dislikes, same with Kaiser because they make it known when they are gossiping!

    Get a grip!

  61. JenniferJustice says:

    We’re very aware who the target audience is for Superhero movies’ and that only cements the failure of this campy excuse of a DC movie. No superhero fans are going to appreciate this one. That’s for sure.

    Rule 1 for a superhero movie should be NEVER use actors/actresses with obvious fillers and injections because yeah, Batman has the time and energy to have his forehead, crows feets and laugh lines filled with Botox #snort#. Don’t even get me strarted on the hair plugs. If they’re going to cast Ben Affleck for this role, they should have an actual scene where Alfred reminds Bruce Wayne that he has another appointment with his plastic surgeon. Might as well work this as a true comedy instead of an accidental comedy.

  62. Ms. X says:

    As to the fillers, etc: I think Ben is very aware of being 10 years older and acting opposite a very handsome (IMHO) Henry C.. Must have been hard on his ego.

  63. Rhiley says:

    It looks like he borrowed Madonna’s chicken cutlets. And is it just me, or does it look like he is wearing makeup, like the whole nine from foundation and blush to eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, and maybe little something on the lips?
