First Official ‘Batman v Superman’ Trailer is Coming on 4/20 (UPDATED)

Fans have been waiting a long while now, but on April 20 folks will finally get to see the first trailer for next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

UPDATE – 4/16/15: The trailer leaked online, so Warners released it ahead of schedule. Check it out here:

On Wednesday night, director Zack Snyder tweeted of an occasion which will give at least a lucky few their first true glimpse of this impossibly hyped feature.

Next Monday (4/20, as mentioned above) an IMAX event — highlighting the trailer — will be held in theaters throughout the U.S. There’s no word yet on whether or not there will be a simultaneous (or soon thereafter) online premiere of the trailer. In the meantime, however, an ever-so-brief teaser can be peeped on Snyder’s Twitter here.

If you’ve not been keeping up, Batman v Superman is the second flick in a planned series of movies, creating for DC Comics‘ stable of superhero properties an expanded cinematic universe along the lines of the one Disney has created with Marvel ; an unprecedented bet which has grossed literal billions of dollars for the studio.

A recap of the proposed slate of DC releases runs as follow:

May 2016 – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Batman.
2016 – Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith as Deadshot and Jared Leto as Joker
