One thing that is hard to miss with the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is that it is dark. Sure, Batman movies (especially The Dark Knight trilogy from Christopher Nolan) are on the bleaker side of the color spectrum. But, what we think always set Superman films apart is that they’re bright, vibrant and downright red, white and blue.
Watch Man of Steel online and clearly that too was dark. After the success that Warner Bros. and DC had with The Dark Knight trilogy, we can see why director Zack Snyder decided to use grayer hues with his film.
The folks at Color Lab wondered how the look of Man of Steel would be different if it was just a little bit more, well, colorful. Would it alter the feel, too?
Check out what they found in the video below.
Honestly, we kind of want to see the entire Man of Steel in the vibrant color teased in the clips above.
We also agree with the narrator in the video that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could have it both ways. The Superman bits could be bright and colorful and the Ben Affleck as Batman parts could be dark and gloomy.
