FFA: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice Trailer Discussion

Exciting week for us here at SAW as two highly-anticipated trailers were released. The trailers are shared below with some thoughts on each.

This was one was more exciting than Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice. While I liked the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy more than many others (especially The Phantom Menace), I think I'm stoked about this one because I believe I'm going to like the post-OT world more than the PT world. It is far more reminiscent, for obvious reasons, of the Star Wars world we grew up with and were first exposed to back in the 70s and 80s. That first shot of the crashed Star Destroyer is absolutely perfect as is the big Han Solo and Chewie reveal at the end.

The most notable thing about the Superman vs Batman trailer is how much better the real trailer looks than the cellphone video of it that dropped a day prior. You could see everything better for blatantly obvious reasons and it improved my opinion of it a ton. I'm a little disappointed that we didn't get a quick peek at or reference to Aquaman and Wonder Woman, but seeing Batman and Superman together was the hook. On that point this trailer delivered. I like how this movie seems to deal with some of the questions raised by Man of Steel. I loved MoS and this looks excellent as well.
