Batman vs Superman trailer shows crowd protesting illegal aliens
Subtle indeed; check out the protesters in front of the Capitol carrying signs reading, “Superman = Illegal Alien,” “Aliens Are Un-American” and the very obviously Westboro Baptist Church-inspired “God Hates Aliens.” There’s also a Superman symbol with the “S” replaced by a swastika (but not a Confederate flag; shooting started a while ago).It already sounds pretty awful. Let's remember that scriptwriter David Goyer was the same man who penned that meaningless story where the Man of Steel gave up his US citizenship. And the same one who made a dirty rant about She-Hulk and Martian Manhunter. Any merits the recent Man of Steel movie had clearly won't cross over well here with these political statements injected. If they're trying to turn Superman into an allusion to infiltrators from south America, that's very regrettable.
Sure, as per the title, it's not hard to guess Superman could wind up a villain this flick. But not only is that something that doesn't appeal to me, it's also no excuse for the ludicrous politics they pushed into what already looks like an overly fanboyish clash between the Masked Manhunter and the Big Blue Boy Scout. The dark-looking outfit for Wonder Woman is a letdown too.
