Watch the Full Trailer for Batman v. Superman!

With Disney-owned Marvel Studios taking a pass on Comic-Con this year (presumably so that the Mouse House can save any big reveals from next May's Captain America: Civil War for their own big D23 convention next month), it gives Warner Bros. the chance to suck up a lot of the oxygen for their impending superhero smash-up Batman v. Superman, hitting theaters next March, which I'm sure they'll attempt to do with the full trailer below. As you may recall, I wasn't exactly blown away by the teaser trailer a few months ago, and I will say this one does a better job of getting me interested.

I really like what we see of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and while we also get our first glimpses of Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg in this universe, I'm glad to see the supporting players from 2013's Man of Steel (Diane Lane, Lawrence Fishburne, Amy Adams) so that this actually feels like a continuation of that flick (for awhile it was starting to feel like THE JUSTICE LEAGUE featuring Superman). But while we got word that Affleck is on tap to write and direct a solo Bat-flick, for now we still have to contend with Zack Snyder and his particular affectations, which means a little bit too much of a 300-lite vibe from some of this:
