Citing the claims made by Comic Central City, KDramaStars reported that the trailer leaked online and gives a glimpse of General Zod, Batman and Batcave. Although video of the said trailer cannot be found online, the Web site has posted a brief description of it.
According to the description, "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" first trailer opens with a "dark scene" and with the "voiceover of General Zod." General Zod is the DC Comics supervillain and one of the biggest enemies of Superman.
The voiceover says, "You are not alone message" and the screen pans out and shows that the scene is taking place in Batcave. When the shot pans out further it gives a glimpse of the back of Batman without his "cowl." It is further revealed that every screen in the batcave shows General Zod giving out the message to him. As soon as the message ends, Batman covers his head with the cowl and turns to the camera revealing himself for the first time. The trailer ends here after displaying "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" logo.
However, the abovementioned description must be treated like a rumour as there is no confirmation on the authenticity of the same. It remains to be seen, if the trailer released at SDCC matches the description provided by the Web site.
