Those better be kryptonite smoke bombs in this new ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ clip
We’re in the final push now! Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters in less than a month. Pre-sale tickets are officially available. Emojis have appeared on Twitter. And Jimmy Kimmel debuted a brand-new clip that features the first moments of the titular icons duking it out.
At the end of the clip, a momentarily defeated Batman takes out a device and detonates a smoke bomb. Standard operating procedure for the Dark Knight. Superman looks perplexed by this turn of events before barreling through the smoke to confront Batman. But the vigilante isn’t there! Instead, he’s firing a gun of some sort at the Man of Steel! It’s a great bit of action. But there’s a small hiccup.
Why couldn’t Superman — he of both X-Ray and superhuman vision — see through the smoke? One explanation would be the smoke is laced with kryptonite. But it’s not green, nor does Superman appear to be negatively affected by running through it. So what gives?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters on March 25, 2016.
