Two fan-made parody trailers of “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” have surfaced online. One of the videos shows animation scenes of the two superheroes that are similar to the 1990s cartoons, and the other features songs from the TV show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”
The first parody trailer was created by JTSEntertainment, which added fan-made art work of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The video starts as the first trailer of the forthcoming movie started, with questions being raised about the Man of Steel by the people of Metropolis.
Some of the scenes in the fake trailer are very similar to the actual trailers of the movie. One of them shows Bruce Wayne staring at the Batsuit, similar to how Ben Affleck was seen staring at his character’s costume in the “Batman v. Superman” trailers. There are also sequences of the Batmobile and the Batplane.
Another fan-made video that surfaced recently on YouTube uses footage from the actual trailers of the movie. After Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) says the two heroes' fight will be a battle of “day vs. night,” a song starts to play in the video. The lyrics suggest “Dayman” fighting “Nightman.”
A report by EntertainmentWeekly, states that the song is from an episode of the TV show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” The song is said to be from an episode where Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day) tries to “stage a play based on his nonsense songs.” The report notes that the songs “perfectly match” the footage from the trailers.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is being directed by Zack Snyder and is slated to be released on March 25, 2016, in the U.S. The cast includes Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
