Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming film Batman vs. Superman has caused more than a little dissent among fans of the comics, but not everyone is letting the news rain on their parade. For one fan, just the fact that Batman vs. Superman movie is happening seems to be enough and that fan put together a stunningly awesome teaser trailer starring both Ben Affleck as Batman and Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor.
It’s not an official trailer, as Cranston hasn’t even been cast as Luthor yet, but the editing job is top-notch and the teaser flows so realistically that if you didn’t know better, you’d believe it as the real deal.
Even if you’re not yet onboard with Affleck as Batman, this trailer actually helps heal the wounds as it gives fans what they’ve been complaining about and shows them it’s not that bad. We won’t know how well Ben Affleck portrays Batman but for the first time since the announcement, Affleck has been put into context as Batman and it turns out that he’s sort of believable.
And that’s just from splicing together footage from his bad movies.
For the fans on the fence abour Affleck, this fan trailer will help them calm down and realize there are two years until the release of Batman vs. Superman and for those ready to pillage in the name of protecting the Batman mantle, this trailer could help change minds.
