Screen Junkies released its first honest teaser for “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” on Monday, complete with a new title that better represents the movie’s promotion.
The parody, “Batman ft Superman: Rush to the Justice League,” forgoes the voiceover of the original teaser and replaces it with excerpts of nerds debating the upcoming Warner Bros. film based on DC Comics characters.
“Stop with the brooding. The only one who gets to brood is Batman,” comedian Patton Oswalt can be overheard. You can’t all be brooding!” Another fan invokes the Marvel/DC rivalry when he says, “‘Ant-Man’ looks stupid. There, I said it.”
After the lengthy opening camera sweep on the original trailer’s defiled Superman statue, the narrator directs the audience: “Get ready to debate a teaser that will probably generate more drama then the movie itself.”
The “Batman v Superman” trailer was slated to premiere in select IMAX theaters Monday, but a pirated copy leaked online last week, prompting director Zack Snyder to release the trailer via Twitter earlier than planned.
Another parody has already been produced, featuring former Batman Adam West and former Superman Christopher Reeve.
