The Red Capes are Coming

The new trailer for Batman V Superman came out:

Not going to say anything about the movie, or how I feel about it, but because of discussions I’ll talk about Lex Luthor’s last statement: “The red capes are coming”

It’s an obvious allusion to Paul Revere who may or may not have said “The Redcoats are coming”, referring to the British Regulars.

Recent characterisation of Lex Luthor suggests he sees himself as a good guy and superheroes as the problem. The presence of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in this movie makes me think he is announcing the dawn of superheroes in the DC cinematic universe (TM).

Lots of curious elements in the trailer, but I’m not going into those just yet.

Let’s wait and see.
