Superman (Henry Cavill) unmasking Batman (Ben Affleck) makes for an eerie scene in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Warner Bros. released a new clip Monday night of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” that makes us wonder who we should be rooting for in the new Zack Snyder film, due out in the spring of 2016.
In the upcoming film, Henry Cavill reprises his role as the Man of Steel, alongside Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
But in this clip, all we see is Cavill as Superman and Affleck in chains as Batman. In a move we usually only see in “Scooby Doo” cartoons, Superman walks up to the bound Batman and rips off his mask in complete contempt.
Batman doesn’t look so thrilled to have his Bruce Wayne identity now known by his super-nemesis either.
Another full-length trailer, which will hopefully show off more of the cast, is planned to debut worldwide December 2 both online and during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will be released on March 24, 2016, in Australia and March 25, 2016, in the UK and US. Check out the preview below.
