On April 16th 2015, the official trailer of Batman v Superman was leaked online, prior to its release date that was set for Monday, April 20, 2015. The trailer was first shown at the comic con to a selected group of people and it was ensured that nothing could get them to leak it. It sure did work as the trailer didn’t see the light of dawn. But it’s like that work of art that got to see the light before its creators wanted it to.
The video could easily be found on Google and had surfaced on YouTube also for a brief time. Many other sites are also providing the link and video but after the news of the leak, many faux ones are also available online. But the makers are trying their best to take it off the internet.
Warner Bros, the studio that produced this film, is outraged at this felony and is trying its best to take down the trailer leaked online. But, the damage has been done, since most of its fans have already seen it. We too, were woken up by the tweets on our phones and well, out of curiosity have seen the trailer.
But since we are a little bit of honest people, we won’t be giving out the review of the trailer till it has been officially released. Although, on a personal level, we can indeed mention that it was awesome!! Even if you are not a fan of Batman or Superman, you won’t be able to resist yourself from watching the movie, after this trailer.
Although this isn’t a new thing that is happening, as the Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron suffered the same fate and its trailer was also leaked one week prior to its destined release.
A word of advice for the studios, they need to upgrade their security systems and also do a thorough check of their employees before hiring them.
That being said, we do hope that Warner Bros find the culprit because we as fans want everything fast and best but the hard work they put into their movies is commendable and we should respect their privacy.
