Alrighty. So the first trailer for the second installment in the DC Cinematic Universe has officially been dropped on us.
I had already seen it, thanks to the sneaky bastards who leaked it. But now, I have seen it in full HD quality, just as everyone now can. Since these are my thoughts on the trailer, I recommend watching it if you haven't already.
Here ya go:

Okay, when the first DCU film, Man of Steel came out, it was met with some of the most mixed reception I've ever seen for a film.
Some people loved it. Others hate it. I'll say that I was one of the people who liked it for several things, and loved the idea of what the film was trying to do (Even got somewhat emotional during a scene I'll admit.), but I did recognize that the film had some problems. (No, I have no problems with Clark snapping Zod's neck. My problems were with other things in that film.)
As much as I enjoyed the film, I have to face the facts. If it was the beginning of DC's plan to launch a big movie franchise just like Marvel did with Iron Man, they didn't quite achieve that. It didn't feel like they got off on the right foot. 
Because Man of Steel was no Iron Man.
That doesn't mean it's impossible for them to make a good film like Iron Man or Avengers in the future though.
I'm willing to give them a second chance.
But as I started to hear that the next film was going to be Batman V Superman, I got a little more curious.
And then I heard that Lex Luthor was going to be in it. Okay, that's cool.
Then I heard they were bringing in Wonder Woman. Um... okay. I guess it's not too crowded. Maybe you could fit her in too.
But then it got out of hand.
Doomsday, Cyborg, Aquaman, the list goes on.
I get that you want to be expansive DC. I know you wanna catch up with Marvel by doing Justice League.
But I don't want you to make a rush to get there, and trip on something and fall.
You can bring in characters for cameos sometimes. But it felt like the whole film was turning into a giant cameo marathon to setup other films that were on the way, rather than tell its own story. A move Sony made with Spiderman, that ended up being a bad call.
If it's Batman V Superman, keep the focus on these two then. Just bringing in a new iteration of Batman feels like enough substance to fill a movie with him and Clark. But the more I was hearing, the more concerned I got. I didn't want this film to get overstuffed and suffer from the Spiderman 3 plague times ten!
I don't hate DC. I may prefer Marvel, but I want DC to catch up. I want things to be even.
Hell, I think DC's Dark Knight films are some of the best superhero films you could possibly watch. 
They are more than capable of making movies as good, if not better than Marvel's films.
But it's all about the talent you bring in to each production.
I'm curious about all the cast members so far. The only warning flag going up in my mind, is the fact that Snyder's directing again.
But if he goes for more practical effects, and lays off the CGI a bit, I'll be good.
Truthfully, the thing I'm most excited for about Batman V Superman, is the score.
Hans Zimmer's score for Man of Steel, was arguably the best thing about that film.
And the fact he's returning, has me very hyped.
Alright, enough with all this background bullshit about my thoughts before this trailer.
It came out. I saw it.
What do I think?

I like it. :)
The voiceover was very foreboding, and made me excited for this film's potential.
It didn't show much. But it showed enough to get me over the hump, and be a little more optimistic for the film.
Not much else to say about it.
But I hope DC can pull together a great film this time.
Because this is the make or break for me.
And from the looks of it, it could be a make, not a break. :D

I think it's time for a little self criticism.
I've been told many times by others what they think is wrong with me.
Perhaps it's time I tell you all what I think is wrong with me personally.

1. I'm lazy.
I often look for the easy way out, or half-ass things. I tend to ignore homework for school so that I can go type more of my stories or something. But that's never ended well. So I try to do some of it now.
2. When I'm in a conversation, I'm often rude.
I always want to be the one talking and getting good response from the other person about what I'm saying. But when they want to talk, my responses are limited, and little thought is usually put into them.
3. I'm very arrogant.
I hate losing a fight or argument. And often, I get myself into trouble because of this. If you ever got into a fistfight with someone, and even after someone broke it up, your opponent kept coming back for more because he wanted to prove something, that's the way I usually am during an argument. I try to get better. But it still happens alot.
4. I get into arguments. Alot.
Sometimes intentionally, just to see what happens. I used to like being that kind of person. But now, I see that it's just stupid. I used to enjoy a good argument with someone. But now I've seen the ugly side of them. And I hate getting into fights now.
5. I recommend things to people all the time, movies, games, books. But when someone gives me a recommendation, I rarely give it a look, and often forget about it. It's a shitty thing to do. And I've been trying to actually check some of them out now. But I still hate myself for doing it in the past.
6. I often attack opinions that are drastically different than my own.
This is something I've done for so long. If someone disagrees with me on something, be it a film or a game, or anything really, I immediately target them and their opinion and get into a fight, trying to stupidly make them think their opinion is "wrong". I've been called out for this many times. And as much as I refused to admit it back then, I knew I was the one who was wrong. Now, I realize that there is no right or wrong opinion. There are just different opinions. I still disagree with other opinions sometimes. But I try not to attack anyone for it anymore. Nowadays, I'm often amazed by some of the different opinions I've seen. For example, in one of my classes we were talking about films, and a girl spoke up and said she loved the film "Lady in the Water". My friends quickly groaned and started to rant about how terrible that film was, unknowingly stomping all over her opinion. Instead, I told her that I found her opinion unique, and wanted to know why she liked the film. I may not agree with her opinion, but I found it interesting to know her point of view on the film and why she loved it.
7. I'm annoyingly persistent.
If I think a certain thing should be done, or that someone should see a certain show, I obsessively try to make them try the show even if they don't want to. There's a state I get to, where every time someone says "no", instead of stopping like I should, I view the "no" as a wall that I must find a way over or around.
8. I'm selfish.
Whenever I talk to someone, I talk about myself, and what I'm doing. I rarely ask about them and what they're doing. Because of this, I know very little about other people. Despite what I think.
9. I'm somewhat shy and antisocial.
Me shy? Nah. Surely I jest. But no really. I am an incredibly shy and quite person to anyone I don't think I know well enough. Around people in real life, unless their friend or family, I don't speak unless I have something to say. (Which usually only happens if I hear people talking about film. But then I pretty hijack their conversation like an asshole, and make it my own.) I don't usually make eye contact with other people. In fact, half the time I don't even look at people. I've seen students assume I was blind, simply because I was looking at the with my peripheral vision instead of direct sight. (I'm always paying attention to things in the background.)
Even my parents, I rarely speak to anymore. If we talk, it's brief. And when they say good morning, I sorta just smile and nod in reply. Sometimes I may manage a shocking "Hi.", but not usually.
10. The fact that I can only come up with 9 things wrong with me.

So yeah, there's a little list of things that I think are wrong with me.
If you have some problems of your own with me, that I either didn't put on this list, or that you just need to vent about, please feel free to tell me about them in the comments below.
