Watch: Catch the latest glimpse of Ben Affleck's Batman in new Batman v. Superman teaser

Zack Snyder’s hotly anticipated superhero follow-up Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice just dropped a new clip, and it’s a bit of an odd one.
The universe-building sequel to Snyder’s own Superman origins Man of Steel still won’t be released until March next year, but that hasn’t stopped Warner Bros. from teasing it since as far back as summer 2014.
In case it isn’t quite clear from the film’s title alone, Batman v. Superman will see the two iconic heroes battling it out for supremacy in Snyder’s new post-Nolan DC Comics universe. Henry Cavill will once again don the famous red cape as crime-fighting Kryptonian Kal-El (that’s Superman to anyone who skipped out on the previous effort) and former Hollywood-heartthrob turned Oscar-winning filmmaker Ben Affleck will take his first bow as a much older and more seasoned Batman than what we have seen before.
This latest clip (a relatively short one at just under a minute) offers up much more of a dramatic twist on the classic superhero rivalry, far less busy than the film’s extended trailer, choosing to focus instead on just the two leads as opposed to any epic action sequences.
Whether you’re a firm supporter of this new direction for Batman and Superman, or you’re a Justice League skeptic, either way the clip below is definitely worth 50 seconds of your time.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is released in the UK in March 2016.
