This. The HD version just reinforced my perception of this. I'll go see it too but I was waiting for a reason to be excited about this and the more I see / read the more I think they're on the wrong path.

I still think DC is trying too hard to catch up to Marvel in the live action movie arena, and this trailer reinforces that in me.

I'm more excited about their next animated venture than this movie.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

It kind of reminds me of the Freddy vs Jason trailer.  Lets have two monsters battle. People don't like sups so batman will fight him. Why? That bat suit looks too big for him. Too dark to see and too underwhelming. Where is everyone else?

Batman?  Looked like Iron Man made a bat suit.

For a movie that has been dreamed of since the Burton era of Batman movies, the trailer is underwhelming.  The electronic modulated Batman voice makes one long for the days of the Christian Bale smoker voice.  At this point, they might as well cast the Wonder Twins and Gleek for comic relief.  While the movie will make untold millions, it won't touch Avengers 2.

Who really wants to see this?  So joyless.

One of the reasons The Dark Knight Returns (comic) was so effective in this conflict was because the two guys had been allies for decades.  Batman was convinced his true friend had been corrupted, and had to be taken down.  That's powerful stuff.

Here, there's no conflict.  Who knows if they've even met.  It's two strangers wailing on one-another.

It's the same kind of mistake JJ made in Trek 2 - trying to recreate something beloved without any foundation to support it.  And it makes no sense.

I'm sure there will be lots of pretty explosions, though.

I too don't care for the "hey, we're the darkest dark that ever darked a dark" vibe they are going for

Batman v. Superman: Darkness

Pretty sad how fitting that LEGO movie song is...
