We all know of the awesome and spectacular footage that was shown to fans on Saturdays Warner Bros. Panel at the San Diego Comic Con, the teaser footage, which was soon leaked onine that showed Ben Affleck in full-on Dark Knight Returns armor suit turning on the bat signal, and then in a flash of lightning, were the bat logo had previously been cast upon the sky we see Superman hovering there menacingly as his eyes begin to glow red, Batman looking up his eyes glowing white. All to a pounding, orchestral soundtrack.
Many fans declared Warner Bros. and DC the winners of this years SDCC because of that footage, with many more fans who were unable to attend or even get into the hall waiting for the studio to release the footage online in full glorious 1080p HD. Yet in a highly questionable move the president of worldwide marketing and international distribution at Warner Bros., Sue Knoll has shot down fans with her short, and blunt statement - "That’s just going to live in that hall. We’ll post extended trailers and stills, but that presentation, that was just for those fans."
Miss/Mrs Knoll's ignorance of the fans is just another nail in the DCCU coffin - adding to a movie that despite being labelled "Batman v Superman" seems to have half the DC lineup cast in supporting roles, the studios over reliance on one director, establishing a rushed cinematic universe on the back of one controversial and average performing reboot, and the repeated anti-fans comments from co-writer David S. Goyer.
May we, the fans, remind Miss/Mrs Knoll and Warner Bros. that at last years comic con, despite being two years away from release, and having not even shot a single frame of footage, their competitors Marvel Studios released a teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and shortly afterward released the same footage online for the rest of their fans. A practice they will no doubt follow with the footage shown at this years comic con. Dear Warner Bros., if you are serious in even attempting to compete against Marvel Studios, maybe you should follow their example and treat ALL of your fans better!
