"Stop with the brooding! The only one who gets to brood is Batman! They can’t all be brooding!" ~ Honest Teaser - Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Script Edit

Narration: Is it really surprising that a movie starring the two most iconic superheroes in the world would be controversial?

[Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer plays...]

Man: Everybody loves Superman! Who doesn't love Superman?

Andy: Yeah, but they couldn't even make a good Superman movie! And now they're just cramming in the whole Justice League!

Spencer: DC has a horrible track record! Green Lantern! I mean, come on!

Dan: Hello?! Dark Knight trilogy! Christopher Nolan's totally involved in these! You're just a butt-hurt Marvel fanboy. Ant-Man looks stupid! There! I said it!

Erica: Not ever comic book movie he to be fun! What are you, 12?

Hal: Stop with the brooding! The only one who gets to brood is Batman! They can't all be brooding!

Woman: Maybe Zack Snyder's just a guy trying to make a good movie

Man: It looks like Sucker Punch.

[CHANTING: DC! MARVEL! DC! MARVEL!]

Narration: That's how it started: Warner Brothers casting Ben Affleck as Batman that turned fanboys cruel. (Horns!) Get ready... (Bwaa!) ...to debate a teaser... (Bwaa!) ...that will probably generate more drama than the movie itself (Horns!).

Batfleck: Tell me is my Batman voice better than Christian Bale's. I mean, it has to be, right?
