Fan 'Man of Steel 2' Trailer Will Make You Believe in Batfleck (Video)

An amazing fan-made teaser for 2015's sequel to "Man of Steel" brings Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck face-to-face (kind of), complete with Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor.

Sure, Ben Affleck was only cast as Batman last Thursday, but that doesn't mean that we can't have a teaser trailer for the follow-up to Man of Steel already -- or, at least, the next best thing: A smartly edited fan trailer that not only includes Affleck and Henry Cavill, but also Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston as an unnamed villain with a glowing green power source who ends up bald.

The trailer comes from YouTube user Soylent Brak 1, who edited together scenes from Man of Steel, Breaking Bad, Daredevil, The Dark Knight and many other sources (including some as unexpected as The Lincoln Lawyer and State of Play) to construct something that, let's be honest, looks kind of promising for a Superman/Batman/Lex Luthor clash.

Never mind the many, many rumors of the erstwhile Walter White potentially playing Superman's arch-nemesis in the 2015's sequel, perhaps Warners should look into finding out who Soylent really is -- he's people, I believe -- in order to bring him on board to help make the real trailers for the movie when necessary. He's clearly got a knack for it.
