Foremost positive thing to say about the film before its release is that director Zack Snyder has gotten the look right. From the costumes to the grainy cinematography and the splendid effects and feel of the action scenes.
Additionally, Affleck seems to be a better choice as Batman than we had first thought him to be and maybe sadly Cavill is a worse Superman than we had hoped for him to be. With Affleck showing off more of a serious side and Cavill lacking the charismatic side that Superman requires to have.
Something also worth mentioning, as pointed out online by somebody. Is that Wonder Woman still hasn't uttered not even one line of dialogue in the trailers and maybe that's because Gal Gadot can't act or hasn't proven that she can act just yet. As her biggest role before this was merely being the hired model for a "Fast and Furious" film. Now, she will have to finally prove she can bring it on. Which many doubt she will, including myself.
Though, what I'm more afraid of from the film is not concerning its look or performances, but about its tone and balance between the characters arcs and focus. As you can see for yourselves from the trailer. They are trying to show the property and mostly Batman as not being as dark as he first seemed to be and that Luthor is a loony type guy that will be the real opposite of Superman. This is in order for people not to think DC films are too dark in its heroes and villains in comparison to Marvel, but worse of all. Is that Clark Kent might not really exist as a character, that Lex will steal the show and that Batman will have a simplistic arc with Superman in how they need to work together to beat Doomsday. And finally Wonder Woman will end up being just deus ex machina story mechanic without any real need for her role in the story. Yet, it has to be said, it can still go either way.
