The Original Superman and Batman Live Action Films Get Dueling Honest Trailers

In honor of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release week the Screen Junkies YouTube channel has put out two honest trailers to poke fun at the original Superman and Batman live action films.

First they take on Superman 1978, which is still one of my favorite movies of all-time even though it definitely hasn’t withstood the test of time. My favorite line from the honest trailer has to be the one about Superman traveling to Earth in a Christmas tree ornament. You can watch all of the jabs below.

Next up is Batman 1989 from Tim Burton, which like the original Superman will always be near and dear to my heart. The best line comes at the beginning when they talk about Christopher Nolan saving the Batman movie franchise from Bat-nipples and ice jokes. You can see the other critiques below.
