Strap in folks, because we’ve got an awesome one for you here! On Tuesday evening, Latino Review broke the news that Zack Snyder and the rest of the powers that be over at Warner Bros. may be set to release the first tease for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer!
So what’s the surprise? The fact that it could be coming this Thursday!
According to the sources that spoke to El Mayimbe over at Latino Review, Zack Snyder will tweet out five seconds of the trailer at 9:00 am PST on Thursday morning. That’s one full hour before the start of Star Wars celebration.
This just makes it one of the best weeks for movie news in a long time. This week, Avengers: Age of Ultron, will be opening in theaters, along with the much-anticipated Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer.
According to El Mayimbe’s Instagram page, people will be able to follow a link from Snyder that will allow them to sign up to see the full trailer in a movie theater on April 20th.
If the rumors are also to be believed, the trailer will be in front of showings of Avengers: Age of Ultron as well. Wow. Trailers for Star Wars and Batman v Superman in one theater is a recipe for fan boy heart attacks!
Stunts like this are not uncommon. Well before Star Trek Into Darkness hit theaters, director J.J. Abrams showed a fraction of a second of footage on Conan. While only three frames of footage, it sent the Internet into a tizzy. Expect this to do the same.
Now that this has been leaked, we will have to wait and see if DC and Warner Bros. blink, and decide to alter their plans. Those of us who really want to see a preview of this movie (ahem!) really hope that they stick to their guns. Either way, this will be a fantastic week for comic book movie fans.
If history is any indication, these rumors are probably right on the mark. Latino Review has a knack for breaking news that is completely accurate. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that this is just as accurate as the majority of their scoops are!
Come on Snyder, don’t let us down!!
