When pride gets in the way of saving the day, evil wins.
At least, that's the idea behind Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) preying upon the insecurities of rivals Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) and Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill). The latest trailer for Warner Bros.' film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in theaters March 25, was released Thursday morning to much fanfare.
The DC Comics characters have different ideas about what it means to be a hero. While Batman chose to become the Caped Crusader, using his wealth to fund his valiant endeavors, Superman only became the Man of Steel when no one else stepped up to the plate. With the weight of the world resting on their shoulders, they lose sight of what's really important: people need their protection. In fact, it's not until a new villain emerges that they decide to team up and take Doomsday down—and just in the nick of time, Gal Gadot makes her debut as Wonder Woman.
