The Internet lit up this past weekend with the news that Ben Affleck would play Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel, teaming up, presumably, with Henry Cavill’s Superman. Now there are rumors that Bryan Cranston could be cast as Lex Luthor (though these appear to be unsubstantiated).
YouTuber Solyent Brak 1 couldn’t wait, and crafted this teaser trailer using Man of Steel clips and assorted films (and one very popular TV show) featuring Affleck and/or Cranston. The only thing missing, really, is a shot of the two together from Argo. Even so, this is nicely done.
