The verdict is still out on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the first critic screenings taking place this week. Soon, we’ll know if Warner Bros. and DC have a hit on their hands. But if we’re to judge the movie by its tie-in commercials, this is going to be one epic ride. Today, we have two Brazilian commercials that show Bruce Wayne racing his Jeep through the destruction of Metropolis. These two TV spots give us a stunning bird’s eye view of the city’s landscape as it is leveled, with buildings crumbling all around these vehicles being sold to the masses.
The third commercial is a thumping, thrilling attempt by Police Lifestyle to sell their two cool new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice watches. And it’s more exciting than any of the previous trailers released thus far. The video is backed by a driving score, with footage from the movie juxtaposed over images of these stunning watches. They are limited edition timepieces. The watch comes in two distinct flavors, one for The Dark Knight and one for The Last Son of Krypton. There were only 2,400 of these made and they come in an authentic gift box with a certificate of authenticity. At that, the price tag is rather reasonable. You can get your own for just $360. But you better hurry. These suckers are going to go fast!
Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth.
As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction.
The superhero stand-off that the world has been waiting for is finally arriving in cinemas, with an all-star cast bringing to life the characters we all love. Zack Snyder returns as director following the huge success of 2013’s Man of Steel, along with Henry Cavill in the role of Superman. Also starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an explosive, action-packed blockbuster that is sure to thrill DC fans everywhere. Take a look at these latest tie-in commercials. Seriously, can you wait another 13 days for this movie to get here?
