Following the debut of an all-new clip from Warner Bros.’ highly-anticipated “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on Monday, star Ben Affleck appeared Wednesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to debut a new full-length trailer for the star-studded film.

Warner Bros. has also released a shorter version that debuted on “Good Morning America.”
The trailer also debuted the first look at Doomsday, who has been rumored to appear since the first full-length trailer dropped.
Further, Doomsday does more than simply appear; he uses some powers of his own, including a warped version of heat vision that appears to blow up an entire city.
As in the first trailer, Wonder Woman put in an appearance at the tail-end. This time around, we see her using her shield, which can evidently withstand the heat of Doomsday’s laser vision.
Of course, the scene ended with a nice shot of the trio standing side-by-side.
However, before getting into the real action of the film, the trailer features a tense exchange between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent, who have both arrived to an event held by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). The two discuss their differing beliefs when it comes to vigilantes. However, it didn’t come without a reference to the Joker, as Bruce Wayne says, “We have a bad history with freaks dressed like clowns.”
During his conversation with Clark, Lex points out how strong the reporter is — hinting that he knows more about Clark’s secret identity than Clark would be comfortable with.
That may be because Lex has some nefarious plans in store. Though we’ve seen the sequence where Zod’s body is wheeled down a long corridor, the new trailer reveals Lex Luthor is at the end of it.
After a new clip was released last Monday, some have speculated that Lex Luthor may find a way to control Superman. Though it’s hard to tell here, Superman stands directly behind Lex in this shot, with his arms folded. Is he just listening to Lex explain himself — or is he forced to be there?
While it’s yet to be seen if Superman ends up working for Lex (albeit involuntarily), it definitely looks like Lex and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) will get some one-on-one time — and she doesn’t seem to be enjoying herself all that much. Her calling him psychotic is a good tip-off.
The trailer also showed off a few of Batman’s gadgets, including some long shots of his Bat plane in action.
Directed by Zack Snyder, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” hits theaters March 25, 2016, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
