Zack Snyder has a lot more Batman v Superman surprises in store

While it's not necessarily a new problem, trailers which appear to give away a film's entire plot are becoming quite the nuisance. A great trailer should get us excited to see the film but also leave us wondering just how everything will play out. The latest trailer for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE faced some criticisms that it gave away too much of the film, including a surprise villain, but director Zack Snyder spoke with MTV News recently and seemed confident that the film will still contain plenty of surprises for audiences.

I have the benefit of seeing the movie, it’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.

Assuming Snyder is correct and that there are many more surprises in store once BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters, it's his hope that none of it leaks online as he's not the biggest fan of spoilers.

Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out! You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?’ So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can. If you’re, as an audience member, exploring these articles, looking for answers to questions that you have, maybe you’re okay with knowing before you go. It’s like an individual taste. But like I said, I want people to see the movie without knowing.

Aside from feeling like it gave away too much, another issue some fans had with the trailer was the way Lex Luther (Jesse Eisenberg) was portrayed. Snyder says that Luther was meant to come across in a very specific way in the trailer, but that in the movie, "he’s like a million times more sophisticated than what you get in 30 seconds. But that’s also the fun of it. That’s why you go to the movies, so you can actually see the context and understand the depth." Having superheroes trade punches doesn't hurt either.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

I believe Batman V Superman is going to be as big as the first Avengers movie.

Wow! Just like that one Reddit review said!

But in all seriousness I hope this isn't BS and that it turns out to be true.

I believe it.....

I think we have the barebones of the story (i.e. Batman's motivation, Luthor using Congress to sway public opinion, Luthor creating a monster by accident, WW's appearance, etc...), but things could go many different ways. Maybe the Doomsday we saw is in the middle of the film, and he's defeated only to come back as the full-grown Doomsday we all know. Maybe the rumors of Darkseid (spurred on by his flying soldiers appearing) are true and he'll be introduced in some way. Maybe we get more of

There are a lot of possibles. It could go bad, but I'm really hopeful it turns out great. I'm a much bigger DC guy than Marvel (seriously, how do you not love the Justice League animated series and films more than anything Marvel has put out in animation?), so I'm really looking forward to DC ramping up to big things while Marvel (who gave us a great decade) starts moving into the B-list properties.

Yea I agree. Marvel has had it's time in the sun, but I think they're really starting to slip. Don't get me wrong, the movies are entertaining to watch. But they've become stale as they all follow the exact same 3 Act structure and at this point are more concerned with setting up the next movie in the series (or next Avengers film) than actually telling a cohesive story in the allotted 2 hours. As a result, superhero movies are becoming a bit stale. So I have high hopes that BvS is going

So I have high hopes that BvS is going to shake things up in a monumental way, if for no other reason than to give us an alternative to Marvel, who, like you said, is relying more on their B-List these days than anything else.

I wonder if these new surprises were the detailed storylines that were spoiled a few days ago. Because if that report is true, then this film is going to have one hell of an ending leading into future DCCU films.
