While it was only live on the Internet for a few minutes, the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer sparked a fan frenzy when it was leaked online Thursday night.

Shot on a cellphone — or “a calculator” as one fan joked — the shaky footage appeared to have been from a screening in Latin America, but was quickly pulled from Twitter and YouTube by Warner Bros.

At the very end of the teaser, Ben Affleck could be heard in his deep, growly Batman voice saying to Superman “Tell me, do you bleed? You will,” according to the website Batman News.

The trailer was officially teased for 20 seconds by director Zack Snyder on Wednesday, with the message: “Confirmed 4.20.15 #BatmanvSuperman @IMAX special teaser screening events. Limited space. RSVP.”

Snyder is referring to the trailer’s premiere at select IMAX theaters on Monday, Apr. 20 during special 15-minute theatrical “events” that fans can buy tickets to attend.

“Batman v Superman” stars Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse EisenbergAmy Adams and Gal Gadot. It will be released on Mar. 25 of next year.
