Bruce Wayne and Alfred talk superhuman threats in new Batman v Superman clip

We’re less than two weeks away from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the studio has dropped a new clip showing just how seriously Bruce Wayne takes the threat of Superman.

The clip focuses on a conversation between Bruce (Ben Affleck) and Alfred (Jeremy Irons) as they discuss the events of Man of Steel and the lingering threat posed by Superman. As we’ve gleaned in other trailers, Bruce Wayne sees Supes as a threat and wants to take him down before he can enslave the Earth (or attract another alien attack like the one that torched Metropolis). 

Though Bruce is dead set on taking out Superman, Alfred is arguing that Superman could potentially be an ally. It’s an intense conversation (which isn’t a surprise, considering this is a Zack Snyder picture), but it also shows the connection between this veteran Batman and Alfred. We’ve already seen Alfred help pilot the Bat-jet in previous trailers, and it seems he’s definitely a key member of Team Batman — while also having his own opinions about the whole superhero thing.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25.
