Following the release of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” first trailer the other day, one obvious comment quickly arose on social media – when will DC fire back with their own first teaser for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”?
Considering the film is not due out until March 2016, a full ten months after ‘Ultron’ hits cinemas, you would think we wouldn’t see a first trailer until mid-next year at the earliest. The movie itself is also still in the midst of shooting with a massive set being built in New Mexico and the production scheduled to hit Chicago next month.
Sources for Batman on Film however claim that Warner Bros. Pictures already have a teaser trailer “ready to go” and will likely attach it to one of their big end of year releases.
The report also indicates the teaser is “Batman heavy” and will primarily focus on Ben Affleck’s Batman character – something the movie itself has been rumored to do as well with Cavill’s Superman playing second fiddle.
If true, it would be one of the earliest pieces of wide release marketing seen for a major film considering it’s still 15-16 months away from release.
