The new Dawn of Justice trailer looks fucking awful

Oh, so that's the direction they're going in...

The Batsuits look cool. Henry Cavill is a surprisingly good fit for Clark Kent, which we really didn't get to see the last time. Wonder Woman's outfit translates better to the screen than I feared. 

But Doomsday, who shouldn't even be in this trailer, looks stupid as shit. Like, Green Lantern 2011 stupid. And that dialogue at the beginning sounds like a couple of edgy teenagers trying to sound smart: "Civil liberties have been blah blah blah puff piece." Looks like someone threw this together using Windows Movie Maker, too.

I can't be the only one who feels it's a little too late for MCU-style humor considering the tone established so far. The best thing about the trailer is it spoils the fact Snyder utterly jumps the shark. Maybe I'm wrong about all this, but you'd have to be senselessly fanatic to pretend this trailer isn't all over the place in terms of tone and structure.

Never before has a single trailer so thoroughly deflated my enthusiasm for a movie. What a mess.
