As part of his annual post-Oscars special, Jimmy Kimmel offered an exclusive look at a crucial scene from the upcoming blockbuster.
The lead-up to Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been an interesting mix of excitement and preemptive dismissal, with fans seemingly torn between the film’s impressive cast and its somewhat cram-packed plot. In either case, Zack Snyder surely has his work cut out for him, what with Dawn of Justice being rumored to be the most expensive movie ever made.
With the film’s big premiere drawing ever-nearer, Jimmy Kimmel invited Ben Affleck onto his yearly post-Oscars show to talk all things Dawn of Justice, which mostly resulted in an extended gag about Kimmel’s arch enemy (and Affleck’s former writing partner), Matt Damon. When it came time to get down to the movie itself, however, Affleck got right to it, dropping an exclusive clip from Dawn of Justice which has since made its way online.
In it, Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent’s alter egos do battle atop a Gotham skyscraper. While The Man of Steel obviously holds the strength advantage, it is the Dark Knight who is able to gain the upper hand (if only momentarily) by deploying…a smoke bomb.
That’s right, Batman tricks the Superman — x-ray vision-having, all powerful Superman — with a smoke bomb.
Personally, I think Kimmel’s “cameo” in the film shows a lot more promise.
