Producer of Batman v Superman Say New Trailer Is Coming Soon
Unless you are a Hollywood big wig, you may have never heard of Charles Roven. But Mr. Roven is a key figure in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and the soon-to-be DC Cinematic Universe. He serves as president of Atlas Entertainment, and is a producer of a small indie picture called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. You may have heard of that one though.
In a recent interview in Collider, Roven discusses when the public could possibly expect another trailer, and how DC Entertainment and Warner Bros.’ hope to keep audiences engaged on an emotional level.
“I think like any genre, the movies have to be good and you have to keep the audience engaged. One of the things that we’re doing when we’re bringing together the DC Justice League Universe is we’re creating not only stories that work for the individual film but they have some resonance to the other films that we’re doing. And I’m hoping that what’s also gonna keep the interest very keen is we’re telling hopefully compelling stories. I mean, one of the great things about dealing with superheroes in general, at least from our standpoint, is they’re both inspirational and aspirational characters, so you’re hoping that the audience is gonna want to be like some of them but you’re also hoping that the audience can relate to some of them, that if we make their stories compelling and relatable, interesting and emotional, that you’re going to really want to spend more time with them. So you talk about Man of Steel and I felt that Clark’s relationship with both of his fathers was pretty emotional and you can relate, certainly people who lost a loved one can relate, and we all have at some point in our lives lost loved ones. So I think even with Batman v Superman we wanna have characters that touch us, and if we can continue to make films like that, the I think they’re sort of ‘genre proof’”.
Roven says that we can expect to see new footage before the end of 2015:
“Honestly, you’re going be seeing something very soon… I don’t know how you define soon but certainly before the end of the year, how about that?”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for US release on March 25, 2016.
