At the end of the one-minute mark, you will start noticing references made to Messianic themes of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The figure shown in the foreground looks like he/she is wearing monastic style robes. You notice that in spite of Superman’s honorable intentions, the citizens of Metropolis have turned on him.
His statue has the words ‘False God’ spray-painted on it. Consider the might of Superman; this negative public perception could refer to something his opponents have fabricated. Meanwhile, you will get your first look at Bruce Wayne, played by Ben Affleck. He is older and at a brooding state. It nicely fits with the older Batman we saw in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight.
Meanwhile, some predict that the voice heard at the beginning, describing Superman as a threat, belongs to Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Jeremy Irons plays Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler Alfred and is quoted saying the “good men turning cruel.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!
