This morning the final trailer dropped for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring a deeper look at Batman’s stake in this fight. At least, I think that’s what’s happening. It’s hard to tell when you literally can’t see what’s happening, save when an explosion lights up the screen. This is a superhero movie, turn on the lights! We shouldn't be squinting to figure out who is punching who or where which character is.

I really do love Batman and Superman. I’m a fan of (some of) the comics, I’ve never met a Justice League or Batman cartoon I didn’t adore, I’m ecstatic about the direction Supergirl has gone on CBS. But I will never, NEVER get behind this gritty alternate universe where Superman is a murderer whose mother says things like “You don’t owe [humanity] anything” and whose father wanted him to let children drown on a bus rather than Clark reveal his powers.

Superman is a avatar of hope and aspiration…not whatever is going on here.

The one saving grace in this trailer for me? Wonder Woman. If Gal Gadot doesn’t steal this entire film, I will be genuinely surprised.

But seriously, is it too late to run this movie through a sunlight filter? I mean, LOOK at this. It's LEGO Batman, “Darkness, no parents” absurd levels of dark.
