The clip (which you can watch here) features Batman (Ben Affleck) shackled and hanging in an underground location. Superman (Henry Cavill) suddenly arrives, looking angry, and approaches The Dark Knight as the surrounding guards bow to the Man of Steel. He rips off Batman’s mask, revealing Bruce Wayne’s face.

A new, full trailer for the film will be released during Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC.

Fox has announced that it will air a special preview of Batman v Superman during the midseason finale of Gotham this evening (Monday, November 30). The news was accompanied by a video of the Batman-themed television series’ cast offering their own predictions about the winner of a fight between Batman and Superman. Naturally, The Dark Knight was a popular pick.

Bruce Wayne faces the Riddler in a new clip from The Batman
Bruce Wayne looks on stoically in The Batman.

Aside from a few promotional images and two trailers, audiences were largely in the dark as to the look and feel of The Batman. Would it be as dark and serious as the Nolan films? Or would director Matt Reeves lean more into Tim Burton's "loner outsider" angle that dominated his 1989 and 1992 films? Today, that all changed as Warner Bros. released the first clip from ita=s forthcoming reboot, which solidifies early expectations that the film will be an intense ride.

In the clip, a somber Bruce Wayne is seen talking to a politician as he enters a cathedral to attend a funeral. As he glimpses young boy who resembles his younger, orphaned self, he overhears James Gordon talking to another cop about the disappearance of Gil Colson. His eavesdropping is suddenly disturbed by escalating screams outside the cathedral. As the sounds of a car speeding outside increase, Wayne looks up to see a shadowy figure, the Riddler, standing on a balcony looking down at him. A car then crashes into the church and stops, allowing the Gotham City Police Department to surround it and see a man emerging: Colson. Wired with a bomb and a ringing cellphone, the clearly captive Colson reveals a letter attached to his chest with the words "To The Batman" written in black ink.
