DC teases more glimpses of the superhero standoff in the broody, action-packed new trailer.

Today, Warner Bros. released the fourth trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring an expanded look at the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel’s (Henry Cavill) beef.

The trailer touches on Batman’s crusade to single-handedly stop crime in Gotham City, as well as the vigilante’s fears concerning just how powerful Superman actually is. “He has the power to wipe out the entire human race…and we have to destroy him,” Affleck says of the alien superhero.

Oh, and we also get a brief glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman’s mild-mannered alter ego Diana Prince randomly closing an overhead compartment on a Turkish Airlines flight (*cough*product placement*cough*). So, yeah, that’s in there.

We gotta admit, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor ominously chanting “The redcapes are coming! The redcapes are coming!” is effective.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives on March 25.
