Watch: Second trailer of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is all we hoped for, and much more

While the first trailer established the first half of the film title with the conflict between the Man of Steel and Dark Knight, the second trailer elaborates the second half as we see the 'Dawn of Justice' with the final shot showing Superman and Batman standing together, lead by none other than Wonder Woman, ready for battle.

Watch: Second trailer of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is all we hoped for, and much more

Feast your eyes! The second trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice is here and it doesn't disappoint.

If you, like us, thought the first trailer released during Comic Con was spectacular and if you, like us, were slightly disappointed by the recently released sneak-peek, wait till you see the second official trailer for Snyder's superhero drama.

The three-minute trailer released by Ben Affleck on Jimmy Kimmel Live, (the go-to  show for all the major trailers it seems), is as mind-blowing as the explosion of Wayne Tower.

Screengrab from the trailer.

While the first trailer established the first half of the film title with the conflict between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, the second trailer elaborates on the second half as we see the 'Dawn of Justice' part taking shape with the final shot showing Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck) standing together, led by none other than Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), ready for battle.

The film is supposed to set the tone for the Justice League movies, after all.

So far, we have seen Superman and Batman fight (and stare at) each other, but this trailer also shows us the first interactions between the alter egos of our titular heroes, Clarke Kent and Bruce Wayne, who unsurprisingly seem to start off on the wrong foot.

The first trailer established that Daily Planet reporter Kent is not very fond of the 'bat vigilante', (Remember him being told that 'nobody cares about Clarke Kent taking on the Batman') but from this interaction it is clear that this sentiment is more than mutual. This leads to some cracking verbal sparring where Affleck gives us this brilliant one liner: "I just have a bad history with freaks dressed like clowns" (Why so serious, Kent?!).

The presence of the Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) at this meeting adds to the scene and the delightfully eccentric Eisenberg gives a refreshing tone to the generally intense trailer. In fact, if he didn't already know he was the bad guy, the cardigan-clad Luthor would be quite likeable. Speaking of baddies, this trailer finally confirms talks of Doomsday being the 'big bad' of the film and CGI on the Kryptonian monster is nicely done.

But the highlight of the trailer is not the superheroes or the supervillain, but the entrance of Wonder Woman toward the end. She emerges from behind her shield after saving the warring heroes from Doomsday leading to the best exchange and scene from the entire trailer: "She with you?" asks Superman. "I thought she was with you?" replies Batman, showing a rare moment of chemistry, as the three take guard with the Amazonian princess leading the way. Of course, we are still waiting for a glimpse of Flash and Aquaman (Only you, Zenia, only you — Eds).

With such a spectacular parting shot, the trailer leaves us more excited than ever before for the film scheduled to hit theatres on 25 March, 2016.

2016 seems to be the year of warring superheroes, with Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also in the pipeline, the first trailer of which was released last week. The proximity of the two trailers' release calls for some comparison, and while both are visually pleasing, the subtext seems to be very different. While Marvel Studio is showing their cinematic superhero universe disintegrating with the 'Civil War', DC is setting the foundation with its first multiple-hero film, showing their heroes coming together. It will be interesting to see where our beloved superheroes from both studios will be heading in the coming year.
