If this fan trailer is any indication, Batman vs. Superman could be the movie event of 2015.
YouTube’s Solyentbrak1 pieced together an incredible teaser for the Man of Steel sequel that shows off not only his spectacular editing skills but also the rumored cast: Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Uploaded yesterday, it already has over 90,000 hits
Cranston’s role as Lex was reported only three days ago, but he’s been a fan favorite for the part for a while, thanks to the eerie parallels between his Breaking Bad character and Luthor, the scientist whose ego and power grow out of control.
Solyentbrak1 said that his mix was already halfway completed, but with a different actor as Batman, when Affleck was confirmed for the role late last week.
Director Kevin Smith tweeted a link to the trailer out to his 2.5 million followers.

“This is fantastic,” wrote typingwriter on Tumblr. “I’ve been working on my own fan edit but now that this is out there, I hardly see the point.”
But given that there are still two years until the movie itself lands in theatres, there will probably be many more takes on the cast to follow.
