Thank you, Internet! Following the first trailer for ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ a mock trailer has been recreated using superheroes of the past; Christopher Reeve and Adam West!

This is too perfect. Everyone is abuzz about the upcoming superhero crossover, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The highly anticipated film, which won’t hit theaters until March 25, 2016, recently leaked a first trailer, featuring stars Ben Affleck (who will play Batman) and Henry Cavill (in the Superman role), respectively. Obviously, the Internet has taken the first look at the movie and run with it. Case in point: a recreation of the two-minute peek, with previous Batman and Superman, Christopher Reeve and Adam West. Watch the hilarious clip now!

‘Batman V Superman’ Trailer Spoof

Take note kids.

Though we have a brand new Batman/Superman movie to look forward to, these two set the original superhero precedent. Using the exact audio from the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, some genius has remade the clip using footage from previous TV shows and films, featuring Christopher Reeve and Adam West.

The finished product, clearly, is amazing.

‘Batman V Superman’: Past V Present

While there’s no need to place the new film up against those of the past, it’s safe to say Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will hold its own in the superhero zeitgeist.

Along with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill playing the leads, the rest of the cast is equally exciting. Jesse Eisenberg will be playing the villainous Lex Luthor, and Amy Adams will step into the iconic Lois Lane role.

While we wait for the film to drop though, we’ll happily take as many trailers, mock trailers and casting announcements that we can get!

What do you think of the trailer recreation? Are you excited for the new film, or do you prefer those of the past?
