16 Things That Should Be Noticed in‘Batman v Superman’ Trailer
Let‘s take a look at the new trailer and see what we can learn from the individual frame grabs in our Batman V Superman trailer breakdown.
First of all, if you haven’t seen the new Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer which premiered at Comic Con, go watch it now.
1. A US Senate Subcommittee Has It Out For Superman
The trailer opens with Holly Hunter, who plays a US Senator in the film.
She is speaking to an audience, and proclaims “Today is a day for truth.”
Superman walks into the hearing, as Holly Hunter’s voice over continues: “We need to know what happened, and to know what he stands for.
That kind of power, can be very dangerous.” … “Let the record show that this committee holds him responsible”
2. Does The Senator Have Ulterior Motives?
Later in the trailer we see the same Senator character visiting Lex Luthor (Jessie Eisenberg) at one of his homes.
Has Lex Luthor paid the Senator off? He tells her “You know the oldest lie in America Senator?
Devils don’t come from the ground beneath us, they come from the sky.”
3. Humans Protest Our New Alien Citizen
We then see Superman drop from the sky to the US capitol to appear in front of the senate.
There are a lot of signs to look at in this image, including “tell us the truth about aliens”, “Superman = illegal alien”, “This is our world, not yours”, “Earth belongs to humans”, “Aliens doom nations”.
And there are a couple pro-Superman signs, like the “Share the planet” on the bottom right.

4. Wayne Manor Has Become Decrepit
We see a shot of a man (Bruce?) walking through overgrown grass to a decrepit old brick building with boarded windows.
We had heard during filming that Wayne Manor would be presented in this way, but why?
Could the Wayne fortune be long dried up? Maybe Bruce left the mansion after the death of his parents or… someone else?
