Batman v Superman goes retro in Adam West v Christopher Reeve trailer

The new trailer for Batman v Superman has been well received since it appeared online.

It provided further confirmation – if it were needed – that the dark tone DC have adopted now seems to be a given after the success of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Am I alone in thinking Superman shouldn’t be conflicted and dark? He’s Superman for God’s sake!

And how much more fun would it be if they’d made this film created by Bobby Burns on YouTube?

Even after all this time, Christopher Reeve remains the definitive Superman, while Adam West and Burt Ward were great in their day too with liberal doses of 1960s hep cat kitsch.

I love this trailer and would urge the bosses at DC to give it serious consideration going forward.

Here’s the real trailer for comparison.
