We’re not huge fans of the teaser-for-a-teaser phenomenon, but when it’s a movie this big, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. Would you expect anything less from Zack Snyder?

Warner Bros. is planning a buzzy rollout for the first trailer from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Snyder has revealed the first all-too-brief peek. The footage offers up a nice look at Ben Affleck’s Batsuit, as well as the good ol’ Superman suit, as well. Sadly, there isn’t much else.

They’re saving the good stuff for the IMAX debut of the trailer, which is part of a marketing push to offer special screenings of the trailer at IMAX theaters across the country (find the list here). The screenings are set for April 20. No word on a potential online release, though we’d imagine the footage will make its way to the masses on or around that date. Hopefully.

Aside from the fact that it's a tentpole superhero movie, Batman v Superman will be the first time both Batman and Superman share the big screen. Not to mention that everyone from Wonder Woman to Cyborg is expected to make an appearance. We don’t expect the studio to show off too much in the opening teaser, but hopefully we’ll at least get a peek at DC’s finest.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
